Stuart Little (1999)[edit]

Main article: Stuart Little (film)

Stuart (Michael J. Fox) is a mouse who is adopted into a human family. His new parents, (Geena Davis, Hugh Laurie) are sure thrilled with him, but everyone is not. Through a series of adventures he eventually gains the love of his big brother George, (Jonathan Lipnicki) acceptance by the extended Little family and even the grudging tolerance of the family cat Snowbell, (Nathan Lane).

Stuart Little 2 (2002)[edit]

Main article: Stuart Little 2

Stuart (Michael J. Fox)'s mother (Geena Davis) is being over-protective of him, especially when he narrowly escapes injury in a soccer game. His big brother George (Jonathan Lipnicki) has also made a new friend, Will (Marc John Jefferies), so Stuart is feeling lonely. Stuart rescues a canary, Margalo (Melanie Griffith), from a falcon; she moves in with the Littles. One day, Margalo is nowhere to be found, so Stuart and Snowbell (Nathan Lane) set out across the city to find her while George covers for Stuart (the first time he's had to lie).

Stuart Little 3: Call of the Wild (2006)[edit]

Stuart Little (Michael J. Fox)'s back in an all-new, animated adventure! School's out for the summer and the Little Family is spending their big vacation at a beautiful lakeside cabin near Lake Garland. But meanwhile, there is something lurking in the forest who could spoil all the fun: the Beast (Virginia Madsen); a mean and isolated forest terror who rules the local animals with an iron paw. When Snowbell (Kevin Schon) is taken prisoner, a Little bravery goes a long way as Stuart, along with his new skunk friend, named Reeko (Wayne Brady), who heroically rescues Snowbell, frees the other woodland creatures and outwits the wily Beast.
