A teenage boy grows to love a stray yellow dog while helping his mother and younger brother run their Texas homestead while their father is away on a cattle drive. First thought to be good-for-nothing mutt, Old Yeller is soon beloved by all.
In the scene with the wild hogs, Travis hauls up a little hog which is a juvenile. In hunting terminology, this is the designation for young wild hogs aged 10 to 12 months.
You quit rocking my dog!
When Rose is acting up and refusing to allow Travis to milk her, Old Yeller is called into the pen. It is led to be believed that Old Yeller's presence made Rose behave herself. However, it is obvious that what actually happened was that Rose was replaced with a much calmer cow. The reason this is known is because the calm Rose is wearing a different harness.
In the 1991 VHS release, part of the "Walt Disney's Studio Film Collection" series, the theme song reprise at the end, about "Young Yeller" is re-recorded with a different vocalist, though Jerome Courtland's singing of the main song in the beginning remains the same.
