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. Written by

Look out pardners, there's a new mouse in town!

The song "Dreams to Dream" is based on a theme used in An American Tail
(1986). It is heard during Bridget's speech in the market, as well as at the end of the Orphan Alley sequence, as the camera pulls back on the orphaned mice sleeping in the rain. See more
At one point in the movie, T.R. Chula is chasing Fieval and singing a taunting, masochistic version of the "Itsy Bitsy Spider" song. The song was first published in the form most commonly used today (with water spout, etc.) in 1962, and it's earliest publication was in 1947. It's not likely the song was sung circa 1885, when the movie was set. See more
They call America the land of oppurtunity. Oppurtunity for what? For children to play in the filthy streets? To never see the sun shine? Fievel's birthday is coming! And we don't even have enough money for presents.
Oh, Papa, I don't care.
I could always sing in front of the gift shop, and maybe they'll throw presents.
How sweetly blessed I am to have such fine children! Maybe things will get better!
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
