Moe is one of minor antagonists of the first film. He is a fat rat who runs the sweatshop Fievel is sold to by Warren T. It is stated that he forwards his workers' wages (fifty cents a day) straight to Warren, making his workers essentially slaves. They are not allowed to leave the sweatshop.
Trivia and Goofs
- In An American Tail: The Treasure of Manhattan Island, a character refused to pay Tony Toponi shows a striking resemblance to Moe.
- Moe is shown much bigger than Warren, even though we later find out that Warren is a cat.
