The Mousekewitzes boarded the SS Austria, which eventually sank (much like the actual ship did in real life), leading to the separation of Fievel from his family. The film is set in 1885, but the SS Austria, the ship which sank, actually perished in 1858, 27 years before the film takes place.
The first half of the end credits feature period engravings of what New York City looked like in the 1880s.
