One of the best childrens films of the 80's
When I first saw this movie when I was about 2 or 3 I was a big fan of it I
still watched even up til I was about 10 years old My Family still has the
tape even though I don't watch it anymore I would still save it for when I
have children of my own or nieces and nephews, or if my cousin's have any.
The great mouse detective came out the same year and it was Disney and most
of the time Disney movies just make the other Animated film be not known.
Not this time Even my 1st grade teacher was a big fan of this. However this
one was way better than the second one because I find the original American
Tail to be more historically Acurate because they leave Russia in December
of 1885 (because it's Chanukah) so when they get to Ellis Island the Statue
of Liberty is under construction and in the end the Statue is finished and
it isn't cold anymore so it must be 1886 at that part of the movie. In the
second for some reason they're leaving for the West in like the 1890's The
westward expansio was over by the 1890's They proobly should have stayed in
New York if you ask me. Back to American Tail. I like how they show the
Immigration, The Cossack attacks, The statue of liberty, The Work houses for
children, and the way how they showed some of the Cats attacking in America
I though was good on how they showed that many of the human Immigrants were
treated unfairly in those days.

An Alternative History Lesson
As well as being an entertaining, fun and moving story, An American
Tail is also a representation of the 1880s when many Russians would
immigrate to America, believing it to be a land of wealth and
opportunity. As this film shows, the reality was often very different.
The story follows Fievel Mousekewitz who becomes separated from his
family on the ship bringing them over to America, and his struggle to
find his family once he gets there. This aspect of the story should
keep children entertained (I personally loved it as a kid) but there
are also many parts that should keep the adults interested, for the
film does address many of the key issues facing the family's who had
immigrated at the time. A fun film, where you may actually learn
something. Give it a try, no matter what your age..
