Many frightening misadventures follow, and Fievel’s family is placed in peril in the process. With a little help from Tony and Tiger, Fievel and Nellie track down the unexpected villain in the depths of the city’s sewer system and, ultimately, put her out of commission.

This wonderfully animated, 76-minute made-for-video feature stars everyone’s favorite American Tail characters and three pleasurable new songs by Michele Brourman and Amanda McBroom. Voice talents include Dom DeLuise as Tiger, Lacey Chabert (Party of Five) as Tanya, Robert Hays (Airplane!) as Reed, Thomas Dekker as Fievel, and Susan Hoyd as Nellie. This is a fast-paced, action- packed video that offers an insightful look at understanding, embracing, and conquering one’s fears. It’s great entertainment for ages 5 and older. –Tami Horiuchi

Amateur astronomer John Putnam (Richard Carlson) and his fiancee Ellen Fields (Barbara Rush) are stargazing in the desert when a spaceship bursts from the sky and crashes to the ground. Just before a landslide buries the ship, a mysterious creature emerges and disappears into the darkness. Of course, when he tells his story to the sheriff (Charles Drake), John is branded a crackpot; but before long, strange things begin to happen, and the tide of disbelief turns. Based on a story by acclaimed writer Ray Bradbury, It Came From Outer Space is a science fiction classic that is as thought-provoking and tantalizing today as it was when it first “landed” on the sliver screen.

36. The Swan Princess / The Swan Princess III – The Mystery of the Enchanted Treasure

by: Sony Pictures Home Entertainment
Release date: Mar 30, 2004
Run Time: 162 minutes
Rated: G (General Audience)
Find in Library
Read Review
The Swan Princess is loosely based on the Swan Lake story. Princess Odette, having been turned into a swan by a sorcerer’s spell, is held captive at the enchanted lake with friends Jean-Bob the frog, Speed the turtle, and Puffin the bird. Along comes Prince Derek, who becomes involved in liberating her by taking on the villain. This excellent theatrical feature has been criticized for being too similar to Sleeping Beauty, but once you’re watching it–with its strong characters, entertaining vocal performances (John Cleese and Steven Wright are particularly funny), fine artwork, and action–such complaints are negligible.

In The Swan Princess III: The Mystery of the Enchanted Treasure, an evil sorceress plans to wreak havoc on Swan Lake by stealing the forbidden arts–a treasure that gives its keeper unlimited power. Odette is kidnapped as part of her master plan, prompting a showdown with Derek. Ambitious in narrative only, this potboiler doesn’t look like much in contrast to the first film in the series. It’s also a shame the producers couldn’t bring back some of the original vocal cast: John Cleese and Steven Wright. –Tom Keogh

Set on the desert planet Zi, where mechanized robot beasts known as Zoids are piloted by humans in fierce battles against one another, this episodic anime adventure series centers on a 16-year-old junk dealer named Bit Cloud.

The fights are fun, the romantic conflicts are juicy, and Liger’s courageous heart is a thing to behold. The show plays regularly on the Cartoon Network. –Tom Keogh
