Synopsis


An American Tail
An American Tail is a beautifully rendered animated flim that tells an overly familiar story in terms children can easily understand. 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, and he eventually befriends a cat as well. Former Disney animator Don Bluth co-produced and directed this often heartwarming yarn, the first animated feature presented by Steven Spielberg, and it has its charms despite a number of cliché situations. ~ Don Kaye, Rovi

An American Tail: Fievel Goes West
In this animated sequel to An American Tale, Fievel Mousekewitz strikes out from not-so-enthralling New York City in a wagon train headed West. Helping propel the departure is a crafty cat named Cat R. Waul who tells our Fievel that out West the cats and mice get along just fine. Once on the trail, Fievel finds that the cat's real plan is mice meat pie out of the little rodents, and Fievel tries his darndest to warn everyone, but to no avail. On his side, however, are a couple of friendly cats, including one named Tiger (voice: Dom Deluise) whose scattered one-liners will keep most audiences chuckling. Another wonderful character is the has-been sheriff Wylie Burp (voice: James Stewart). Although this film may be rightfully criticized as being a little too tame, even for toddlers, the endearing and humorous character side-play will likely appeal to most little ones, and very possibly some big people, too. ~ Phillip Erlewine, Rovi

    One of My Favorite Animated Films

    When my children were little I think we watched American Tail more times than anyone else did!!!! We actually wore out the tape(of course, it was a VHS back then) and had to track down another one before my kids would be content. There was not a week that went by that we didn't watch Fivel at least five times! Now, I get to watch this with my grandsons and I was so glad to see the dvd available with both the original movie plus the sequel. I bought one of these for each of my children to give them at Christmas so they can watch them with their family and I bought one to keep at my house to watch with the little ones myself. I'm just a big kid at heart and I still love to watch the animated films with or without the little ones!! American Tail is a great movie to watch with the family. It's great, clean entertainment to watch with any age that is funny, lovable, sincere and teaches good morals - something we need more of these days! You can't go wrong buying this dvd!

    Don Bluth is one of the greatest animators to have ever lived, and An American Tail ranks as one of my favorite films that he's done. It's still a fantastic movie to watch with a great story and characters and absolutely gorgeous animation. This double feature includes both the original classic as well as its sequel all for a great price.

    The American Tale movies were popular when I was a child, so I was happy to see this 2 movie set available to share with my children. Our son has enjoyed watching them, and can't beat the price!! At the time of purchase we received a free "Sing" lunchbox, which sweetened the deal. I hope Best Buy continues to do offers like these!!

    I remember watching these when I was younger, but back then I only understood them as the antics of cartoon mice. Now as an adult I realize the historical significance of what the movie was about (specifically the first one). The collection is nice. Great price for both movies. It was exactly as I expected.

    I grew up watching these films and couldn't wait for my kids to see them so I picked this double feature up. They liked it but I do feel like they thought it was a bit outdated compared to other animated films they like. DVD is great quality and we enjoyed it very much.

    I bought the DVD since my VHS version "died". My nieces and nephews used to watch this movie now it's the grand nieces and nephews. The music is catchy and the story is sweet--about mice immigrating to America where rumor has it that there are no cats and streets are paved with cheese.

    I purchased this to watch with my nephews and was amazed at the picture quality. I have fond memories of the grainy VHS versions and to see it updated and my nephews as enthralled as I once was made the purchase well worth every penny.

    With the trouble and disharmony in today's society, the best way to combat xenophobia is by placing yourself in another's shoes. Fievel and his family escape persecution in their homeland, to the land of golden dreams (New York City).
