Is that so? Well, you wouldn't have to put up with us anymore curly! 'Cause were done playing fetch! Its time a doggy took a walk!
~ Twitch expressing his anger and hatred towards Madame Mousey.

Twitch is the secondary antagonist in An American Tail: The Mystery of the Night Monster. He is the leader of the Outlaw Cats.

He was voiced by John Mariano. 


Twitch is Madame Mousey's manservant. He has a very short temper, and he gets easily abused by Mousey throughout the song "Creature de la Nuit".

Twitch despises Mousey and teased her about her problems with the other dogs. When they came back after a failed attempt to get rid of Nellie and Fievel, Twitch tries to get the cats to turn on Mousey because he believed they were better off without her and since they had Mousey's sewer maps.

They had a way to get past the mice gate that protects them from the cats. At the near end of the film, Twitch and his minions attack Fievel, Nellie, Reed, and Tanya with Mousey's monster machine. However, it gets destroyed but Twitch survived and he attacks Reed and Nellie, but Fievel saved them and he tries to catch Fievel. But he gets defeated when Fievel tricks him by activating the printing newspaper machine, and he got wrapped up in a newspaper. It is unknown what happened to him after that. He could be sold to an owner, escaped being tied up, or he died from suffocation.



  • He could be one of the followers of Warren T. in the first film, which explains why he lived in the sewers with the other cats.
  • The chase scene with Twitch and Fievel, mirrors Tom and Jerry.
  • Papa reads in the newspaper that the Outlaw Cats had run away, so it is possible that Twitch was one of them.
  • Unlike the cats from previous films, whom wear clothing and walk on two legs, Twitch and his minions walk on all fours and have no clothing, like Madame Mousey and Dog Council in the film. The reason for this is unknown. 
  • Similar to Chief McBrusque and Scuttlebutt in the previous film, Twitch, and his minions attack the heroes physically in the climax after Madame Mousey is electrocuted by Fievel and is captured by Toni Taponi and Tiger.
