It sounds like you are mixing up 2 Fivel movies. The first one: An American Tail is the one where Fivel falls into the ocean and the remaining members of his family check in on Ellis Island. Fivel Goes West is an entirely different movie where Fivel and his family go West to guess where... California! Anyway about the baby, would you bring a baby to a big event like the one they had to get rid of the cats? I would think it would be dangerous for a small child and/or baby. Although it wasn't specifically mentioned where the baby was during that part of the movie I don't think it was forgotten about. Maybe they left it at home with a babysitter. :) So I don't think it was a slip-up; rather an unexplained event in the movie.

I understand the slip up. It is very true that the baby does disappear for some reason. The baby is in the first movie. They are traveling west to America, not to the American west. So it is in the first movie that this happens. I didn't realalize that that happened until I just read about it. It is very cool of someone to pick up on that though.
