Food. The strangeness of marketing pet food as a tie-in to a movie infamous for ending with a dog being put out of his misery goes without saying.
*
NightmareFuel: It can be pretty terrifying to see Old Yeller when he's infected with rabies.



* TooDumbToLive: Arliss tries to open up the corn crib that contains a rabid Old Yeller, even when can clearly see the dog snarling, lunging, barking, and acting not at all like the cuddly family pet.

Added DiffLines:

* AngstAversion: One of the most infamous examples in film media. The scene in which [[ShootTheDog Travis has no other choice but to shoot his beloved dog]] (who contacted rabies from a rabid wolf) is just so ''excruciatingly'' heart-breaking for lots and lots of viewers.


* TearJerker: Yeah, [[TearJerker/OldYeller pretty much]].


* AllThereIsToKnowAboutTheCryingGame: Three guesses as to what the first thing that comes to people's minds when you bring up this movie. [[ShootTheDog The first two don't count.]]

* ValuesDissonance: It can be very difficult for modern parents to stomach the idea of a mother letting her son be the one to kill his beloved pet, rather than doing it herself and sparing him the trauma. Sure, back then he would have been exected to "man up" and do it himself, but in the 21st century, few people would dream of even allowing their child to witness the euthanasia, let alone commit it.
