Penny is a relatively religious character. In The Rescuers, she is seen sincerely praying for help to escape her plight after she is kidnapped by Madame Medusa. Miraculously, Penny is rescued by two brave mice from the Rescue Aid Society.

In the children's novel Miss Bianca, which inspired the story in the feature film The Rescuers, the little girl captured and force to look for a massive diamond is named "Patience." Some commentators regard Patience and Penny as distinct characters, but we feel the characters and plots are sufficiently similar to classify them as the same character.
