"America, what a place."
- Papa MousekewitzAmerica is the setting for (almost) the entire duration of the first film and the whole of the sequels. According to Papa Mousekewitz and the immigrants on the boat, there are supposedly no cats in America. But they come to find out that they're dead wrong. The series shows America as not all it's cracked up to be, but a place where you can achieve your dreams if you work hard.
There are a series of locations in America that are seen in the An American Tail series. They are:
- Moe's sweatshop
- Tammany Hall
