America, where the streets are paved with cheese!

American Tail

An American Tail came out back in 1986, introducing Fievel, Tiger, and the rest of this delightful cast of characters. There was a good amount of merch, but from what I recall, and based on my years of working on this archival project, there were no coloring books for the first movie. Pretty odd since even some of the smallest budget cartoon movies of the time had at least 1 book come out. Then in 1991, Fievel went West. With the sequel came the books. The good thing about this batch of books is that the Meet the Mousekewitzes book was mostly about the first movie, so it gave the young artists a chance to color some of their favorite scenes from the original adventure. These 4 were nicely done, and are all available now with samples, too.
