An American Tail: Fievel Goes West is an animated film produced by Steven Spielberg's Amblimation animation studio, distributed by Universal Pictures, and originally released to movie theatres in 1991. The film follows the story of a family of Jewish-Russian mice who emigrate to the Wild West. In the movie, Fievel Mousekewitz is separated from his family as the train approaches the American Old West; the movie chronicles Fievel and Sheriff Wylie Burp teaching Tiger how to be a dog. Fievel Goes West is the sole theatrical sequel to 1986's An American Tail, although there were later two direct-to-video sequels, the first of which, An American Tail: The Treasure of Manhattan Island, treated Fievel Goes West as a dream sequence, thus retconning it; this treatment of the original displeased some fans.
