Storyline

Pelle is a cat who was born without a proper tail. He compensates this by studying hard and, much to the dismay of his archrival Måns, receives a fancy degree very few cats in Sweden have obtained. Some time later he is visited by his relative Pelle Swanson who invites him over to visit his new home country America. There everything is bigger, even the rats are much fatter. Everything seems possible in America, even the prospect of finally having a proper tail and a sweetheart to call one's own. Written by Markku Kuoppamäki

A good sequel to the original Peter-no-tail
9 March 2004 | by (Pickerington, Ohio) – See all my reviews

I saw this film on the Disney channel about ten years ago along with the original Peter no-tail. This cartoon film was just about as good as the original, but the original was still my favorite. This one

however had a good point to it: What happens to someone from another country who is not use to a big city in America. Never the less Peter no-tail was still a kind-hearted cat to everyone even if the other cats were not nice to him. This one had a little bit different story then the original,but it was still an excellent film, not only for children but adults should enjoy this film as well as children. It is still a shame that this film and the original Peter-no-tail are not very well known.
