Tale of a Tail

When I was five years old a cartoon hit the theaters just before the Christmas season. It was a story of a little Russian mouse named Fievel. An American Tail became a beloved classic for my brother and me.

We just switched from Comcast to Direct TV and we get the premium movie channels for free for a short while. I decided to check out what was on HBO tonight and my son is currently enthralled with Fievel and Tiger and the whole gang.

It's so special to share the things of my youth with him. And 22 years later this song still gets to me.


  1. I love that movie but expecially the song! It's in my 5th graders' music book so we sang it on the Spring concert last year since my hubby was on deployment. (It totally made me cry every time.)

  2. I loved that movie and had totally forgotten about it until now. Thanks for reminding me :)

  3. Without watching the link, I know just the song you're referring to. "Somewhere out there...."
