"This is America! We have free speech! We can say cat here! Cat cat cat, and double-cat!!"
Bridget is a vocal Irish mouse rights activist who befriends Fievel and becomes Tony Toponi's girlfriend, ultimately becoming instrumental in helping Fievel find his family in An American Tail. Her role in the sequels is extremely limited.

An American Tail

Bridget is a mouse rights activist of Irish decent. Her parents were killed by cats in 1884, whether she was in Ireland or New York at the time is unknown. But this incident is likely what led to her becoming an activist against the unfair mistreatment mice suffered from at the hands of the cats of New York. She is first seen giving a speech in a back alley, imploring any mouse listening to get together and do something about the cats. It's about then that she met Tony Toponi. She seems to be just as attracted to Tony at first sight as he is to her. She also takes an immediate liking to Fievel, and agrees at once to help him, bringing them both to Tammany Hall. This is fruitless however, because Fievel's family was new to America and Honest John didn't know them yet. It is evident that Bridget, being politically active, knows people in high places. She sits on stage at Gussie Mausheimer's rally and was possibly one of the key figures in the building of the Giant Mouse of Minsk. She lives in a water tower atop a downtown building, and lets Fievel stay with her while he searches for his family, likely acting as his caretaker along with Tony between the scenes.

During the Great Fire caused by Warren T. Rat on the pier where Fievel gets lost, Bridget finds Fievel's hat, and later when she and Tony run into the Mousekewitz family, she shows it to Mama, proving Fievel is alive. She joins the search party for Fievel, and is last seen kissing Tony while falling into a puddle after Fievel is reunited with his family.

An American Tail: Fievel Goes West

She appears alongside Tony in a few cameos in Fievel Goes West, always with a child in her arms. It can be assumed that she and Tony have started a family by then, and moved to Green River. Neither speak in this film.

Later films

She is absent in both direct-to-video sequels, although Tony Toponi is brought back and pursuing women, Cholena in particular (who does not return his feelings). There are several possible in-universe explanations for this:

  • Films 3 and 4 take place before film 2, and during that period, Bridget and Tony broke up but then got back together by the time of film 2.
  • Films 3 and 4 take place before film 2, and during that period Bridget and Tony are still together but Bridget is at home (possibly taking care of their baby) and never shown onscreen, while Tony is being unfaithful. Evidence for this theory can come from the angry glances Tony gets from Fievel when he first flirts with Cholena; Cholena might have rejected him because Fievel told her about Bridget in a scene that was not shown. Tony may also be desperate for money in the third and fourth films because he has a family to feed.
  • Films 3 and 4 take place after film 2, which was only Fievel's dream, and with Tony pursuing other female mice, they probably broke up after the first film. Arguably the most likely explanation from the creators of the sequels.
A possible real life explanation for Bridget's absence is that her original voice actress, Cathianne Blore, was in poor health at the time the direct-to-video sequels were produced, battling cancer, and the creators didn't want to recast her. That, or they simply felt keeping Tony single would be better for the story.
