The film, although a sequel, was created without Don Bluth's support or input. It was extremely panned because of this. The film is unrelated to ''Racso and the Rats of NIMH'', the sequel to the book on which the original film was based.

Upon its release, the film received largely negative reviews by critics and fans of the first movie. ''Entertainment Weekly'' '​s Marc Bernardin gave the sequel a C- grade and said, "Alas, this Bluth-less direct-to-tape sequel [...], about a mouse's transformation from misfit to hero, has none of the original's heart or craft, and all of the sappy songwriting and patchwork plotting common to further adventures."<sup>[1]</sup> The ''Chicago Tribune'' '​s Harlene Ellin gave it one and a half stars out of four, adding that "the uninspired continuation [...] clearly wasn't worth the wait".<sup>[2]</sup>
