"The Young Runaways" is an episode of The Wonderful World of Disney. It aired on May 28, 1978.


Heartless parents C.L. Doyle and his wife take two of their older children, Rosebud & Joseph T. Doyle on a family vacation to Alaska, but dump their younger ones, Freddy & Margaret Jean in a Los Angeles foster home. Infuriated by this, Rosebud talks Joseph T. into running away with her so that they can break their younger siblings out of the system, which sparks a manhunt, and an outburst of sympathy among kids everywhere.
