** In the third movie,the chimp complains about the cage of the lions being bigger. Which lions? The ones that attack the villains in the final confrontation.
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: In the third film, Mikey tells his schoolteacher that Dundee hunts and kills crocodiles for a living, which she naturally assumes to be a lie. When she informs Dundee of this, he's shocked... because he would never ''kill'' a crocodile, since they're a protected species, and instead catches them alive.

* FeigningIntelligence (combined with TheTrickster): Before Mick and Sue head out into the bush, Mick looks at the sun and tells her the exact time... after covertly checking Wally's watch a few seconds earlier.
* FishOutOfWater: All scenes with Dundee in New York, and most scenes with Sue in the Outback. From the second movie on, Mick intentionally plays this up in order to fool people into thinking he's dumber than he actually is.

* HypocriticalHumor: In the first film, Mick attacks the man in the Walkabout Creek bar who accuses him of poaching crocodiles because he "won't have anyone using bad language in front of a lady"--yet he has absolutely no qualms with saying "bastard" and "shit" when it's just Sue and himself.
** Of course, in Australia, "bloody" is a harsher swear word than the others.

* MistakenFromBehind: Mick runs after what he thinks is his friend Sue, but as the person turns it's really just a man with long blonde hair and rather feminine clothing.

A sequel followed in 1988. It has Mick, now living in New York, running afoul of a gang of vengeful Colombian drug dealers. After humiliating them on their home turf, he's told by the police to go into witness protection, but instead leads them back to Australia where his superior knowledge of the Outback will prove to be advantageous.

A third film appeared in 2001, ''Crocodile Dundee in UsefulNotes/LosAngeles''. Mick and Sue are married and have a son: Mikey Dundee (Devon Fitzgerald). They live in the Australian Outback, where Mick is wrestling crocodiles for a living. When Sue is offered a major position in a Los Angeles newspaper, she jumps at the opportunity. But all is not right. Her predecessor was murdered, and the case remains unsolved. The Dundees have to perform their own investigation.

Before ''Series/CrocodileHunter'', there was... ''Crocodile Dundee'', a 1986 film, directed by Peter Faiman.

[[IntrepidReporter Sue Charlton]] (Linda Kozlowski) travels to [[LandDownUnder Australia]] to do some research on a story she'd heard about a man who survived a vicious crocodile attack in the bush. Who she finds is Mick "Crocodile" Dundee (Paul Hogan's first film role), a quick-witted bushman who, it turns out, did ''not'' lose his leg to the vicious croc--but who seems to have an uncanny symbiosis with the Australian Outback. When Sue must return to UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity, she invites Mick to accompany her, and HilarityEnsues when she sees that he is [[FishOutOfWater not so accustomed to the city as to the bush]]. Ultimately, she falls in love with the charismatic Australian, but must decide whether to go with him back to Australia or remain with her current boyfriend.

Dundee's famous claims turn out to have been substantially exaggerated, and he's a bit clueless when out of his element. However, what's left when the tall tales have been scraped away is still a tough-as-nails bush-ranger who traps live crocodiles for a living.
