I loved this movie when I was a kid and still like it now. For starters it's cute. It's also short and sweet with lots of moral lessons in it which is perfect for young audiences with short attention spans.

" A young mouse named Fievel and his family decide to migrate to America, a “land without cats,” at the turn of the 20th century. But somehow, Fievel ends up in the New World alone and must fend off not only the felines he never thought he’d have to deal with again but also the loneliness of being away from home. The film was released in the United States on November 21, 1986, by Universal Pictures, four months after Disney's The Great Mouse Detective was released. It received positive "

Pros and Cons of Films: Vol. 2 (130 movies items)

"Pros: I love this movie, It’s funny, and heart breaking all at once. The voice acting. Music score by James Horner The song, especially “Some Where Out There”. The animation. It’s beautiful. One of Don Bluth’s best films. One of my favourite, Steven Spielberg executive produced films. The historical context of the film. Con: For younglings, it’s a nightmare fuel movie, that emotionally pulls no punches."

You know......for kids! (180 movies items)

"Between Fievel getting separated from his family, with the cats attacking the mice, Fievel getting tossed overboard, and the giant mouse at the end of the film, there are a lot of jarring moments. But it all turns, okay in the end even after everything has happened during the movie, especially all of the close calls between Fievel and trying to find his parents."
