Movie Info

After three poor orphans are sent to live with gambler Russell Donovan (Bill Bixby), they discover they have actually inherited a large fortune from their dead father. Soon a series of greedy undesirables shows up. They try to get their hands on the money, so, in order to keep things uncomplicated, the kids decide to give their inheritance to a lovable outlaw duo, Theodore (Don Knotts) and Amos (Tim Conway). But there is only one problem -- the gold is locked away in a bank vault.

Critic Reviews for The Apple Dumpling Gang

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (5) | Rotten (4)

  • The traditional ingredients of homely moralising, sentimentality and raucous slapstick are used sparingly, the dialogue is fairly bright, some visual gags are neatly executed.

  • Walt Disney started by making movies in which animated drawings played the parts of people or animals who stood for people. Later he turned to making movies in which people or animals play the parts of animated drawings.

  • Everytime I see one of these antiseptic Disney films, I'm reminded of the thrills and genuine artistry that went into the studio's films during its golden age in the 1940s and 1950s.

  • Rollicking Old West ride lassos some stereotypes.

  • A delightful cast of character actors helps the childish story, with Conway and Knotts beginning what would become a somewhat famous, but very simple-minded, film comedy duo.

Audience Reviews for The Apple Dumpling Gang

  • Sep 14, 2011
    The Apple Dumpling Gang is an innocent and innocuous Disney family film which doesn't have a whole lot to say and doesn't particularly care. It's concerned with being G rated fun with dopey, one dimensional characters acting like brain dead zombies rather than real people. Bill Bixby, rest his soul, plays his leading man part so completely over the top I'm not quite sure he ever really understands the type of film he's in. Susan Clark is a terrible stereotype of a "western town woman"...she's tough, looks like a man and can beat up the men without a second thought. That she has any maternal instincts is remarkable. The plot is mostly aimless, moving from one slapdash point to another with little sense of flow or logic. When Harry Morgan tells townspeople to shut up, it's a breath of fresh air that someone-anyone-is being truthful in the picture.

    One of the best Disney movies of the decade. It's more of a family movie than just a kids movie. I especially loved Bixby in this movie, he's cute. This movie is fun, humourous, and exciting too, kids and adults will enjoy it.

    A classic Disney film. Very funny. Don Knotts and Tim Conway have great chemistry in this and both are very funny through out the film. One of my favorites when I was a child. The film is dated now but is still a fun watch. Great for the kids and the family.
