The Apple Dumpling Gang was a film said to be the most successful Disney film of the 1970’s, hence it was only natural that a sequel to it would be made. However, this sequel would not star the main characters, Dusty and Donovan, from the first movie. Instead, it would focus on what many people would consider the runaway hit characters from the first film: the bumbling thieves, Theodore and Amos.
