the secret of n.i.m.h

Let Me Introduce You To Someone Named Mrs Brisby

One of the best animated protagonists ever, Mrs Brisby[Mrs Frisby in the book Mrs Frisby and the Rats of Nimh] is just a mother that wants to save her dying child so she decides to go visit the Great Owl who directs her to Nicodemus and the rats of N.I.M.H and learns an incredible secret about her late husband. What’s the most admirable thing about her is that despite all the incredible things she learns, she never loses sight of her main goal which is to save her sick child,

She’s determined, motherly, gentle, polite, strong-willed, respectful, patient, kind, brave, big-hearted, understanding, benevolent, mature, modest, sweet, responsible, daring and a true heroine.

Next Time: A look at a group of the coolest fucking supporting characters ever.
