An American Tail (U)

Fievel Mousekewitz explores New York

This charming immigrant tale tells the story of Fievel, a young mouse, who gets separated from his family on the way to America, a cat-free paradise cheese-filled streets...or so he's been told.

A young mouse named Fievel Mousekewitz and his family set sail for the United States after their home is destroyed by cats. But a fierce storm throws Fievel from the ship, losing touch with his family. Fortunately, he manages to sail to New York in a bottle. There, Irish mouse Bridget, an Italian mouse named Tony and a kindly cat named Tiger help Fievel as he embarks on an adventure to find his family in this strange land.
