YMMV: Where the Red Fern Grows
- Narm: Rubin's death in the movie, which was more of an in-universe Epic Fail than anything else. "Doh!"
- Squick: Old Dan's injuries. His stomach is torn open by a mountain lion. He survives and tries to follow Billy home, only to have his intestines spill out of the open wound and tangle in some brush. A sobbing Billy is forced to clean dirt and leaves off his faithful pet's intestines and stuff them back into the body cavity. This book was written for ten-year-olds.
