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.

Sexual Content

Not applicable.

Violence

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.

Language

Not applicable

Social Behavior

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.

Consumerism

Coca Cola bottles and signs seen throughout the movie.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

A poacher smokes cigarettes. Adults may or may not be drinking alcohol at a party-- hard to tell what is in their glasses.
