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

Jerry Goldsmith, who had previously worked with Don Bluth on The Secret of NIMH (1982), was initially considered to compose the score, but withdrew due to previous commitments. In Goldsmith's place was James Horner, whom Bluth was already familiar with, as said composer's agent attempted to pressure Bluth into hiring Horner for "NIMH" despite being contractually obligated to use Goldsmith's score.

In Henri's room, as Fievel is done taking a bath, there's two modern American flags (meaning 50 stars). In 1885, when the movie takes place, there weren't 50 states. See more »

The 2006 DVD release includes a remastered 5.1 soundtrack, both in Dolby Digital and DTS. It also has some dialogue changes compared to the original, most noticeably: Extra dialogue that was recorded but never used, and different voices for the orphans towards the end of the film (adults instead of kids - these are actually the original voices, which were replaced by children after the scene was animated).

Excellent movie for all ages that will warm your heart!
In my opinion, this is an excellent movie for all ages that will warm your heart! When Fievel (voice of Phillip Glasser) got lost, I wanted to cry. Although some of the characters were diabolical, I liked everybody. Well, it's hard to say which character was my favorite. The music was good, especially "Somewhere Out There, "A Duo," and "No Cats In America." In addition to the music being good everyone was cast perfectly, and the direction was flawless. In conclusion, I highly recommend this very touching movie for all ages that will warm your heart to anyone who hasn't seen it. You're in for a real treat and a good time, so go to the video store, rent it or buy it, kick back with someone close to you, and watch it.
