Fievel Mousekewitz and his family of Russian-Jewish mice escape from their homeland in the late 1800s, boarding a boat headed toward America to evade the Czarist rule of the Russian cats. Fievel, however, is separated from his family upon his arrival in New York City, and he discovers to his horror that there are cats in America too (his father said there weren't). Fievel meets his share of friendly and hostile mice. This movie has beautiful and colorful animation that still holds up today and this movie is a little dark at parts with the cats and new York itself but I still enjoyed this movie.

A great animated film from the mind of Steven Spielberg. I grew up on this movie and the clever tale of Fievel as an immigrant mouse is one that is both heart-warming and gentle. Its enough of a children's cartoon to be exciting and worthwhile for children to watch, but adult enough to appeal to the children's parents as well. I know this is a film that my children will be fortunate to watch.
