Fievel is a young Russian mouse separated from his parents on the way to America, a land they think is without cats. When he arrives alone in the New World, he keeps up hope, searching for his family, making new friends, and running and dodging the cats he thought he'd be rid off. Written by

We see Fievel outside of a mouse school with little mice reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. This wasn't written until 1892, over six-and-a-half years after the 1886 setting of the story. In addition, the phrase "to the flag of the United States of America" is used; the original version of the Pledge featured instead "to my flag", and was not changed until 1923, 37 years after the setting of the story. Finally, as the sound of the Pledge trails off, "under God" can be faintly heard; this was not added until the 1950's. See more
Fievel! Tanya! Stop that twirling, twirling! I mean it!
But Mama, it's Hannukah.
For you, every night is Hannukah.
