    This being my first post and all
    first I'd like to give a nice hello to everyone here and to say I look forward to posting at this forum.

    Anyway, my question is
    do any of you guys remember An American Tail, the animated movie that came out in 1986?

    I personally thought, when I was younger, that this was one of the better animated movies out there, especially with the fact that Madeline Kahn and Dom Deluise were voices in it.

          but they were both Direct to Video fare.

            Never really cared for it. It just always seemed too overly cutesy to me.

              Fievel Goes West was just the bomb. Tanya (Cathy Cavadini) singing Dreams to Dream and The Girl You Left Behind...that just owned.
              They made 2 straight-to-video sequels, and get this: FGW, where the family went to the west was JUST A DREAM. WTF? Fievel's about the same size and age as the first movie, Tanya's a little older than him, but younger than in the second movie. They totally f*&*&ed things up.

                  Odd, huh? I guess girls DO mature faster. During the middle of her first song in Fievel Goes West, I had a sudden realization: She's not exactly a kid anymore. She seemed to be around 12-14.

                    i loved American Tail, but i thought Fievel Goes West was even better. Sheriff Burp was so funny and John Clease as the villain cat :)

                      ditto :D

                      both the first two were some of the best animated movies evah! Plus it was directed by the same guy who made All Dogs Go to Heaven and the first Land Before Time. Dang! His name slips my mind at the moment! :x

                        Don Bluth

                        and he actually didn't direct the second one
                        the second one was directed by Phil Nibbelink and Simon Wells.

                          I can't believe I forgot that. :? He's one of my favorite animation directors.

                            I really liked this movie when I was little. I will admit that it did scare me at parts like at the beginning when the cats rampage through their homes. I had a giant Fievel (?) plush toy too :lol:

                              i liked both, though the first seemed to scare me a lil, so, naturally, i liked 'Goes West better...

                                I liked Fievel Goes West better, but I think An American Tail is the better film.

                                Fievel Goes West is the only movie I can remember seeing with both my parents as a family before their divorce. I also remember saving like a banshee (a financially responsible banshee?) so I could buy a Fievel action figure that I saw in K-Mart.

                                When my mum got remarried, though, we weren't allowed to watch the American Tail movies, because my step-dad had lost a son at the age of three whose favourite movie was An American Tail. Same with Care Bears.

                                It's fair enough, I guess, but kind of annoying considering I liked those things too. I have em all on DVD now anyway. :lol:

                                  I preferred Fievel Goes West, but I love the first one, as well. Great film.
                                  I am deranged, but so, so playful!

                                      If for some reason you want to check out the later movies, just get Mystery of The Midnight Monster. There's an awesome song titled The Creature De La Nuit (The Creature Of The Night) sung by the movie's villainess Madame Mousee (Pronounced "Moo-SEI";). She's delightfully crazy and alternates between a bronx (pissed) and french accent (normal) depending on her mood. Crazy pink poodles for the win.

                                      I'm the creature de la nuit, ze poodle of Paree
                                      and nowhere in the world is there a dog more smart than me
                                      I am novelle, chic, and wise, don't judge me by my size
                                      And if you double-cross me I will rip out both your eyes
                                      You're fools to mess with me...Regard! The creature de la nuit
                                      Without me you were starving, living on scraps and rice
                                      (rice!)
                                      Now we're on our way to easy street, soon you'll be rolling in mice
                                      (mice!)
                                      So don't make light of me WHOOPEE! The creature de la nuit
                                      I may appear a mere poodle, but deep in my heart I remain
                                      a greyhound a pit bull a doberman pinscher...
                                      or better yet, a great dane!
                                      "but what bout that nosy reporter?"
                                      I will nab that nosy miss in a trap she can't resist
                                      and then I'll give that pretty neck (heeheeheehee) a chic french TWIST!!
                                      So mademoiselly Nellie Brie, you must take me seriously
                                      If Napoleon were a her with fur...HE WOULD BE ME!!
                                      I make no apology jes sui (that's she)
                                      Un formidable enemy
                                      You prissy pussycats agree
                                      I'm the creature de la nuit....en-GARD!

                                        My little bro loved this movie back in day. I must've seen it hundreds of times. he had the large plush dolls. Even these days every x-mas i go up my moms house and there on the tree are the little American Tail ornaments you got I believe from Burger King. I haven't seen this in a long time but it was a good movie.

                                          Hey, while we're on the subject of An American Tail and its sequels, does anyone remember Fievel's American Tails from around 1992?
                                          I loved that show. I'd totally love to find the tapes.
                                          I am deranged, but so, so playful!
