- This makes America seem like even more of a Crapsack World when Fievel's betrayed by the one person who gave him hope in the first place.
- If it wasn't Henri himself secretly working for Warren then maybe it was just the female pigeon he sent to take Fievel to Castle Garden.
- Yasha looks her oldest in "Fievel Goes West" so this could still work. You could also say concerning Bridget that her and Tony's relationship was a bit rocky after the first film, temporarily separate during "Treasure of Manhattan Island". and they get back together and eventually married later on before "Fievel Goes West". This might fit with another WMG involving Mystery of the Night Monster. Or, she's just off-camera with her baby, another WMG covered below.
It must have something to do with that psychedelic mirror Fievel and Tiger sing "A Duo" in front of that temporarily made them the same size. That's the magic mirror Warren was using to aid his rat disguise.
In Fievel goes West, it's able to morph into a cowboy hat because of its magical properties.
- According to an old DOS game, Fievel's hat does have special properties.
Just as Fievel has his supernatural hat, Tanya's voice has supernatural properties.
- Which would, fittingly, explain its glass-shattering and hypnotic powers. So basically, she's Siryn?
- Waul might have tried his scheme of sending mice West to their doom before but had run into trouble with Warren's gang, who had an invested interest in the mice staying in New York. With Warren and the Mott Street Maulers gone, Waul saw his opportunity to edge in on Warren's former territory and take his mice away. Perhaps the two villains were former rivals.
- Maybe Bridget wanted to go back to Ireland for a time and fight for mouse civil rights there, coming back to America later and reuniting with Tony.
- This is why Tony is so desperate to get rich in both movies; he needs a job to feed his family. And yes, this does imply he's swooning over Cholena while still with Bridget. Remember, this is a guy who fell completely in love with a girl after seeing her through the corner of his eye while walking by a knothole for two seconds! Not the kind of guy you could trust to be completely faithful, unfortunately.
- In the third movie when Tony says that he has responsibilities now and he can't just go wherever he wants whenever he wants and Fievel gives him a knowing "Ohhh". That could be explained by this.
- Actually, he was referring to his new job. Bridget and their baby is in no way alluded to. Hell, Tony almost seems to live with Fievel he hangs around him so much.
- That could also explain why Tony was so freaked out in the fourth movie after the monster started grabbing everyone, maybe the monster took Bridget and the baby. The cats do say that the new mice are "Italian food" and after Tony hears them say that he tries to attack the cats without thinking it through.
- It should be noted that the first movie definitely did have one or two songs cut from it.
- Nope. Cat R. Waul's owner is a plus-sized woman and we do see her face, but briefly. Mousey's owner, on the other hand, is Uncanny Valley.
- Tanya: Ha! Like that could happen.
- If you think about it, the third movie begins with Fievel having recently woken up from a dream, and the fourth movie ends with Fievel falling asleep at the beach. It all being a dream (or maybe two dreams) would explain the inconsistencies of Bridget being missing, and their being back in New York and the like. Fievel acts rather out of character in the fourth movie, being plagued by fear whereas he's brave in the other movies. Perhaps the fourth movie was a nightmare, and the third was just a weird dream.
- I'm thinking there might be a Steven Mousekewitz, based off of Steven Spielberg, who is the grandson of Fievel Spielberg, the person where Fievel got his name from.
- In that case, Fievel Goes West and Fievel's American Tails are probably two separate but somewhat similar universes, due to the canonical errors in the show.
- Infant mortality was rampant in those days, its possible the original Yasha died in New York, explaining why she's absent from the second half of the first movie. To cope with the grief, Papa and Mama had another baby and gave her the same name, thus explaining why Yasha seems to still be a baby in Fievel Goes West even though Fievel and Tanya have grown older (and a different-looking baby at that). This likely gives them more incentive to move west, with bad memories in New York.
- Sawyer resembles Miss Kitty in some ways, and they're both singers, maybe it's the family trade.
- The problem is, they followed the mice there.
- Pretty accurate, since before the Europeans came the only cats in North America really were mountain lions and bobcats. European mice probably arrived via stowing away on colonial ships before house cats did.
- At the end of Fiddler on the Roof, the Jewish family is forced to move to America, which is where Fievel comes in.
- It's not a sequel, it's an homage. Papa Mousekevitz has the same personality and musical talents as Tevye.
- The conductor mouse's "Green River" lines have already been suggested as a Shout-Out to Blanc's role on the Jack Benny Show (specifically, to Blanc's "Train leaving on track five for Anaheim, Azuza and Cuc-amonga"). Considering most animated films have roughly a 2-3 year production timeline, it's possible that the character may have been designed with Blanc as the intended voice actor; with the lines possibly written as a tribute after Mel's July 1989 death.
- This is just a theory, but perhaps when the writers were thinking of "inbetweenquels" as I shall refer to the DTV sequels, they made these to show that not all mice or dogs are good people (probably on purpose) and it's not just cats that can be evil. Just a theory.
- This would explain how inconsistent and occasionally bizarre each episode is, and why the show doesn't follow canon very well. The dreams would be somewhat prophetic of what would later occur in Fievel Goes West, but there are indications in the second movie that Green River and possibly Cat R. Waul were things he already knew a lot about before moving there (Waul briefly appears in his daydream at the start of the movie, for example).
- They have their clothes, their countries, their religions, etc. only they're smaller.
