Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that An American Tail: The Treasure of Manhattan Island is another adventure of Fievel the mouse and his immigrant family. This action-adventure has a strong message about tolerance and equality for all but also has quite a few suspenseful scenes and a lot of cartoon violence, including some disturbing scenes of police beating up protesters, which may be too scary for some young viewers. There also are some pretty dated ethnic stereotypes of various immigrants and Native Americans.

Sexual Content


Suspenseful scenes of peril such as Fievel almost getting hit by a train or flooding lava; scary skeletons that lead to a treasure map; and a scheming villain and his police thugs who beat up protesters with a baton and threaten more violence.


Some racist terms such as "injuns" used by the bad guys.

Social Behavior

Strong messages of equality, tolerance, and equal working conditions for all people (and mice!). But also some dated stereotypes about Native Americans and immigrants.

Villains drinking and scheming in a bar.
