    Somehow the series went from heart- breaking drama to goofy western. WTF!!

    Fievel an American Tail expected you to take it seriously while suggesting you can solve your problems by building a giant robot. Fievel Goes West establishes how wacky it is early on then manages to throw in serious moments without feeling out of place.

    If you're looking for "something deeper" in a children's movie you've already failed as an adult.

    • Mr. Mediocre Gamer

      I said if you are "looking for" as in actively seeking out deepness in a children's cartoon then you've failed. I didn't say it's not possible for cartoons to have depth. Just that the kinds of lessons that they teach most adults should already know. +Elsie

      Except plenty of children's movies _do_ manage to have "something deeper" than this to them. Including, y'know... the prequel to this one.

    I actually really like this movie. Yes, its not AS good as the first movie, but it is still a decent movie done by one of the greatest animators in animation history. After all, its still nowhere near as bad as A Troll in Central Park.

    Two things: I'm among those who loved this movie as a child and, as a latinamerican, I only knew Wylie Burp dubbed as Wylie Perrález, which would have been a literal translation of Wylie Dogson, had that been the character's actual name.

    An American Tail is one of the most boring movies I’ve ever seen in my life. Fievel goes west is fun, funny, and brighter than the first movie. I think nostalgia has a lot to do with why people are so attached to the first one.

    I like the other sequel with the dragon/monster. It appealed to my artistic/psychology side by showing how differently people can see the same thing. I mean, its not explored a LOT, but I like when children's media introduce such concepts.

    (6:42) That is actually a real thing. There are undeveloped tribes in the world mistaking airplanes as something from god. There are of course also tribes that hates everything unknown and not seeing it as a god.

    Of course there is an anime where this is somewhat explored... Photon: the idiot adventures. while not worshiped as a god there is a marker that is considered as a holy relic by desert people for a majority of the series. If you are into anime at all I suggest you check it out. It is funny, action packed, and sarcastic.

    My opinion about An American Tail movies:
    1986 movie
    A beautiful and underrated gem with heart and charm
    Okay. Not as deep as the first movie, but it was entertaining

    Having seen the first American Tail movie, I can explain why Feivel’s family isn’t quite as relieved that Feivel has returned and is alive. This is the same Feivel that cheated death not once but TWICE when they first came to America. The fact that he avoided drowning in the ocean during a storm and survived a building fire shows that Feivel can survive practically anything.

    EDIT: Well that lady really loves the pussy.... I have long attributed Don bluth to the invention of furries as a whole especially appearance wise but now i think all the weird shit may be coming from bluth too also the god sentence may be reading too much into it but bluth was a Mormon missionary at one point...
