Did You Know?


Tony Toponi, from An American Tail (1986), returns as a principal cast in this film and An American Tail: The Mystery of the Night Monster (1999), which he was known as a fan favorite, but without Bridget. Tony's role was limited as a background cameo in An American Tail: Fievel Goes West (1991) and was absent in Fievel's American Tails (1992) because of Pat Musick's acting difficulties during those periods.

The first underground line of the subway opened on October 27, 1904. However, the event in this movie took place between "An American Tail" (1885) and "Fievel Goes West" (1891), as the underground line wasn't even invented before then. The Mousekewitz children and Tony would have all been grown up if it took place in 1904. See more »


Tony: Uh, great. So, you know about that subway station you've told me about?
Fievel: [as Fievel starting to think that Tony wasn't being truthful] I thought you said you've discovered it.
Tony: Well, I didn't say I didn't have help.
Dithering: [Dr. Dithering was starting to get own to Tony] Uh, you didn't go in there, did you?
Tiger: I told them not to. Honestly, I did!
Tony: [Tony gets irritated at Tiger] Oh, put a lid on it, will ya?

Not as good as the first two
6 July 2000 | by GoodWillHuntingSee all my reviews

First off, you never expect a direct to video movie to be as good as the first two movies that went theatrical. I was really looking forward to this film, ever since I bought the two classic masterpieces during their re-release on video. I saw the trailer, and it looked like fun. Tell you the truth, The Treasure of Manhattan Island plays out more like an animated TV show than a movie. It's not nearly as kind and gentle hearted as the first two...it's not as fun either. As for the music, it's not really top notch either. 2 of them are completely disposable and the other one, I dunno the name, works perfectly in a scene featuring Fievel and his new found friend and their ride in a water bucket supported by string. This is by far the best part of the film, and the only part in this 3rd film that really resembles true American Tail magic. All in all, it's a good film, just a huge step down from the first two. If they worked more on a better script and if it had more of a movie feel to it and not a TV animated show, it would've been better. Throw in more quality songs (there were only 3 songs in this film)and that also would've made it better. More magic was needed, and here for the most part it was lacking....though Dom Deluise is still great with his tiny role. Worth watching, just be aware of the flaws
