A 1977 version of Captains Courageous was made for television starring Karl Malden as Disko Troop, Ricardo Montalban as Manuel and Jonathan Kahn as Harvey.

A 1996 version of Captains Courageous was made for television starring Robert Ulrich as Captain Troop, Colin Cunningham as Manuel and Kenny Vadas as Harvey.

The 1951 Joel McCrea Western Cattle Drive was described by some reviewers as Captains Courageous on the plains due to a similar storyline: An experienced cattle herder (McCrea) rescues the rich, spoiled son of a tycoon, who is lost on the plains, and teaches him how to survive on the trail.

A 1952 Mister Magoo cartoon short titled Captains Outrageous referenced the film in its title and loosely in its plot, which has the wealthy Magoo falling overboard his boat while trying to catch an elusive giant marlin with his nephew.
