Storyline

Some time after the Mousekewitz's have settled in America, they find that they are still having problems with the threat of cats. That makes them eager to try another home out in the west, where they are promised that mice and cats live in peace. Unfortunately, the one making this claim is an oily con artist named Cat R. Waul who is intent on his own sinister plan. Unaware of this, the Mousekewitz's begin their journey west, while their true cat friend, Tiger, follows intent on following his girlfriend gone in the same direction.

Crazy Credits

Instead of showing the traditional Amblin logo (the one of Elliot going on the bicycle and flying up to the moon) the logo says, "Amblimation" and Fievel is pushing it, then he stands next to it and his hat falls down over his eyes. See more »

A charming little film...
25 September 2001 | by (Sherwood Park, Alberta) – See all my reviews

I'm not necessarily one to grab a bowl of popcorn, dim the lights, and plop onto the couch and throw in, say, "Snow White." Animated films, specifically those Disney and otherwise aimed at five-to-ten year-olds, have never really interested me. However, this movie was one of such grace and humor, I can't help but enjoy it over and over. The lovable Fievel returns once more as his family journeys across the Great old USA in search of a better life in the west. Unfortunately, the nefarious Cat R. Waul had some rather devious plans for them. John Cleese is so funny, it's hard to sit through any of his movies and not laugh once. Dom DeLouise is also quite comic, being one of the greater comics of the past two decades- for proof, see Cannonball Run series, Robin Hood-Men In Tights, and this movie. "Dancing Buffalo Bones? Nah!"
