Rollicking Old West ride lassos some stereotypes.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Apple Dumpling Gang, a 1975 Disney Western, stereotypically portrays Asian people and actively promotes traditional gender roles as the only "correct" way to be. Dusty (Susan Clark) and Donovan (Bill Bixby) -- but especially Dusty -- develop feelings for each other; they eventually share a kiss. There's also mild violence and danger that may frighten very young children, but it's mostly slapstick.
