Mr. Ironside[]

The school teacher, probably a mole, who runs the schoolhouse. He is interested in the education of Green River's youth, and encourages Tanya on her path to becoming a singer.

Mr. J.M. Schimmel[]

Owner of the general store in Green River. He has a German accent and a cranky demeanor, though he seems to be good friends with Papa Mousekewitz. He and his son Sydney don't seem to be mice, lacking big ears and long tails, so are probably some other type of rodent.

Mr. Whiskers[]

An elderly prospector mouse, who is well-versed on the history of Jeremiah's lost gold mine, and convinces Fievel to discover its whereabouts. He actually first appears during the song Way Out West from An American Tail: Fievel Goes West. From "The Lost Mother Lode".

Patty Paris[]

The baker. A caricature of Ona Munson's Belle Watling from Gone with the Wind.


Another former Cactus Cat Gang member who now follows Sweet William.

Sydney Schimmel[]

Fievel's classmate, who bullies him often, makes fun of him, and lies to get Fievel into trouble. He is ungrateful when Fievel rescues him from Cat R. Waul too. Son of the shopkeeper Mr. Schimmel. He bares a slightly closer resemblance to Roc (one of The Bullying Orphans).
