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.

* AwesomeAussie - Mick Dundee, the {{trope codifier}}. Downplayed by way of MilesGloriosus. Michael J. 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.
