A true animated classic that wasn't put out by Disney. Great music, great story and great characters. Dramatic with the family separation in the plot, but there's fun and humor, too. Just when things seem the most bleak, there is a very happy ending, though! (No spoilers!) Most of all, there's a lot of heart. And yours and those of your children will be tugged at, as well. I remember my first cousin saw it at the age of six and really liked it. In a sweet bit of trivia for pop music fans: the pretty song from there --"Somewhere Out There" -- was the first song in fifty years (since the 30s, then!) from an animated movie to get radio play and be a charted hit (number two) on the radio. (The end credits version.) It won two Grammys, too! I loved that!! Also in another fun bit of trivia, the Mousekewitzes Russian hometown of Shostka is real! (Fievel would these days be Ukranian-American!) Still a dear favorite of mine, and I first saw it the year that it premiered (1986)!:)

A great late 80's movie that showed that Disney wasn't the only company who could make a quality animated movie. Though mainly intended for younger audiences, there is enough drama and humor here to keep the grown-ups engaged. The standout performance goes to the art team and their incredible work bringing late 19th century New York to life. Watching this movie should be mandatory, and I don't think anyone would really complain about having to do it.
