Common Sense Says
Old Yeller sequel has Native American stereotypes.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this sequel to Old Yeller, while certainly not the tearjerker of that well-known title, is filled with dated portrayals of Native Americans, including name calling ("injuns" and "dirty red devils"). Children are kidnapped. Also, expect extended rifle battles, brotherly rock fights, and scrappy conflicts between the titular dog and a feisty bobcat as well as a pack of wolves.
