Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this Disney family adventure from the '80s features some bad guys who capture a beloved cheetah pet, put her in a cage, and starve her. Poachers hang animal skins around their dwellings -- proof of their deadly deeds. Kids are kind-hearted, but make some questionable choices to protect their pet, though everything turns out well in the end.
Several perilous moments like being chased by an elephant. A tribesman threatens another man with a spear. No blood. Kids are captured and put in a cage, but their friend frees them.
Lessons of loyalty and love abound here. Teddy and Susan risk a lot to save their pet cheetah, Duma. But these risks include lying and putting themselves and their friend in danger. Slight ethnic stereotyping of Indian shop-owners as greedy.
Coca Cola bottles and signs seen throughout the movie.
Drugs / Tobacco /
A poacher smokes cigarettes. Adults may or may not be drinking alcohol at a party-- hard to tell what is in their glasses.
