Travis Coates: Papa, you ain't forgetting the horse.
Jim Coates: What horse?
Travis Coates: Now Papa, you know I've been aching all over for a good horse to ride. I've told you time and again.
Jim Coates: What you're needing more than a horse is a good dog.
Travis Coates: Yes sir, but what I'm wanting most is a horse.
Jim Coates: Alright, you act a man's part and I'll bring you a man's horse.

Deliberate mistake: At the beginning of the movie Mr. Coates tells his wife that he will be gone "all of three months, maybe four." The first time we see Bud and Elizabeth Searcy she tells Travis that her dog is pregnant and that Old Yeller is the father. We then see her dog that does not look very pregnant. The next time we see Elizabeth she presents Travis with one of the pups. The problem is that the pup that was supposedly just born is about 4 months old.
