An American Tail: Fievel Goes West (1991)

Howdy pardners, we’re back. Sorry for the hiatus, one of your fine feathered hosts got struck down with dreaded ‘rona. Don’t sweat it though Ramblin’ fans, as we’re back on the saddle to continue our epic journey through the valley of Amblin Entertainment. That’s right we’re back in the Old West, this time with an animated mouse, with our look at sequel ‘An American Tail: Fievel Goes West’. We’re joined by our old pal - film journalist Barry Levitt (@blevitt93) - to chart our travels on to  the dusty town of Green River, home to even more nefarious cats and one gassy sheriff, old dog Wiley Burp (James Stewart in his final film role). We go deep into the creation of Amblimation, Spielberg’s very own animation house, and how a lot of hopes were hinged on the return of Fievel and the Mousekewitz family. But does the Don Bluth-less sequel match up to his heartfelt original? Join us and find out! Josh Glenn would also like to let everyone know that The Matrix Resurrections is out now on all home entertainment formats. You can follow Barry on Twitter and Letterboxd @blevitt93 , and catch his writing over at Looper, i-D and SlashFilm.
