Gah, There's a Hidden Penis in An American Tail: Fievel Goes West


There are no cats in America and the streets are drawn with diiiiiiiiiiicks!

Remember An American Tail and its sequel An American Tail: Fievel Goes West? Of course you do. Who could forget the epic saga of the Mousekewitz family as they move to America and try to survive and thrive as rodents in the land of opportunity? But even if you are the biggest Fievel fan to end all Fievel fans, there’s something you probably will have missed on your first, second and maybe even 100th viewing of Fievel Goes West. During Tanya Mousekewitz’s beautiful rendition of “Dreams to Dream,” one animator snuck in fleeting albeit very blatant penis doodle and it’s aimed straight at her. Poor Tanya! Not only does she stumble unwittingly into the paws of the villainous Cat R. Waul, but now she has to deal with this?

The single-frame dick doodle was brought to the public’s attention by Redditor Akumies a couple of days ago, but this handy video where you can watch the dick show up over and over again has actually been on YouTube for years:

See? The truth is out there.

It might be a hoax, but as Ashley Burns at Uproxx points out, keen eyed observers will catch a flash of it even while watching full clips of the song that appear entirely unrelated to the Fievel Goes West dick conspiracy.

Right now I’m honestly more concerned about why this cat has hands.
