Some time after the Mousekewitz's have settled in America, they find that they are still having problems with the threat of cats. That makes them eager to try another home out in the west, where they are promised that mice and cats live in peace. Unfortunately, the one making this claim is an oily con artist named Cat R. Waul who is intent on his own sinister plan. Unaware of this, the Mousekewitz's begin their journey west, while their true cat friend, Tiger, follows intent on following his girlfriend gone in the same direction. Written by

During the song "Dreams to Dream", a book is shown with a scene from the Beauty and the Beast fairytale. Disney released their animated version of Beauty and the Beast on the same day as "An American tail: Fievel Goes West". See more »

Instead of showing the traditional Amblin logo (the one of Elliot going on the bicycle and flying up to the moon) the logo says, "Amblimation" and Fievel is pushing it, then he stands next to it and his hat falls down over his eyes. See more »
As far as animated movies go, this is one I enjoyed. The American Tail
takes on a classic western feel as Fievel and his family journey into the
heart of the west. The real quality comes from John Cleese as the slimy
conniving cat, and the late great James Stewart as Wylie Burp, the
town sheriff in the form of a bedraggled dog. A lot of the fun is the
dynamic action humor of the last quarter. But, the big comedic boost for
these movies is Dom DeLuise, who is just great as the overweight loveable
cat. He's one of the reasons to see this.
