Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Not bad sequel to Disney's Old Yeller w/mostly same cast."
‑ Steve Crum, Video-Reviewmaster.com
"This 1963 sequel to Old Yeller is every bit as bad as the first movie was good."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"for as good as Old Yeller is, there's its counterpart on the disc - the weak sequel Savage Sam."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"Still packed with that patented Disney Nature Quaintness, Sam isn't a terrible follow-up, but it lacks the spine that the grown-ups brought to the first film."
‑ Scott Weinberg, DVDTalk.com
