Fridge: An American Tail
Fridge Brilliance
  • In An American Tail, the Giant Mouse of Minsk was the Golem! An artificial creature, larger than average but modeled after its creator(s), that drove off the oppressive forces threatening the helpless. Why did it take me so long to figure that out? - Pickled Plums
    • And, like the mice who came with Fievel's emigration group, the original Golem's creator was Jewish. -JET73L
  • Henry the pigeon, who builds and lives in the Statue of Liberty, speaks some French. When you take into account that the statue is a gift to the United States from the people of France, it all makes sense!

Fridge Logic
  • Unless we never see Fievel go through immigration at the end of the first movie, Fievel's technically an illegal immigrant! -Surenity
    • DEY TOOK OUR JEEEEEEEERBS!!
    • In 1888? there was no such thing. If you got here, you were legal.
    • They are animals and laws do not apply to them like that?
      • But we see the rest of his family become registered citizens at Castle Garden early on in the film, which makes the Fridge Logic more jarring. Although it probably didn't matter as much back then.
      • Minor nitpick, put they were not being registered as citizens but as residents. You didn't get citizenship until you had lived in the country for a certain amount of time and pass a test.
    • Maybe the Statue of Liberty flight happened right after running Fievel through immigration. They were in the right area for it to happen, and we don't know how much time has passed since the family's reunion and Fievel and Tanya getting a close up view of the newly finished statue.

Fridge Horror

  • All dem orphans in the first movie, who conveniently disappear for the heartwarming reunion between Fievel and his Papa.
