A cast of comedy pros, including the hilarious Don Knotts and Tim Conway, make this classic a sure winner! Low-ranking football team The California Atoms are at a constant loss until they recruit a new player -- a mule named Gus. It turns out that Gus is an amazing place kicker with a 100-yard field goal ability! Just as the Atoms begin to leave their losing streak in the dust, crooks attempt to kidnap their new star.

Kids will get a kick out of this mule tale.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Gus is a humorous entry from Disney Studios with genuinely funny moments. But it looks like it was hastily assembled, with little concern for the look of the project. Elementary-age kids probably won't mind the movie's less than professional sheen, and parents will appreciate its child-friendly approach. Very young children may not be able to follow the narrative, but 4 and 5 year olds will like watching Gus's hijinks. School-age kids will enjoy the silliness and may laugh all the way through.
