And where do you think you're going? You're mine! Now get to work! You, what are you looking at? Back to work!
~ Moe ordering Fievel & Tony to work

Moe is a large fat rat with beefy muscles and a minor antagonist in An American Tail. He is Warren T. Rat's friend and the owner of his sweatshop.

He was voiced by the late Hal Smith.

Appearance

Moe is a brown furred obese but muscular rat. For clothing, he wears a white sleeveless shirt, red pants with black suspenders and a yellow bowler hat.

Personality

Moe is a cruel, ruthless, treacherous, and sinister taskmaster who takes any orphans as his captives and forces them to work for him, and won't allow them to leave.

Biography

When Fievel and Warren T. Rat arrive at his sweatshop, Warren opens the door. Then, Moe grabs Fievel and laughs madly at his face as he drools. When Fievel asks Warren about his family, he tells him that he doesn't need a family that he has a job at the sweatshop, telling Moe to send him Fievel's salary before slamming the door on his way out. Fievel tries to follow, but Moe prevents him from leaving, ordering him to get work, before throwing him across the sweatshop. He is last seen ordering Tony Toponi (whom Fievel later befriends) to get back to work and walks away. Later at night, Fievel and the rest of Moe's workers escape the sweatshop, and Moe is not seen again for the remainder of the movie.

Trivia

  • Moe is shown to be taller than Warren, even though he is a cat.
  • In the novelization, he is seen a little more. The worker children tie him up before escaping the sweatshop.
