Storyline

A tiger escapes from a circus truck as it passes by a small town, and hides itself in the surrounding woods. This throws the town into a panic and everyone wants the animal killed immediately, except for the daughter of the sheriff. She wants to capture the tiger and put it in a zoo, thereby saving the tiger's life. Her determination starts a nationwide campaign among children to raise the money to buy the tiger from the circus, but first, she, her father and an Indian tiger trainer must find the tiger before the National Guard do, who have orders to kill it on sight.

User Reviews

Standard Disney 60's fare.
9 May 2000 | by (Auburn, Me) – See all my reviews

This film had many elements in it that Disney installed in several of their films during this time period. The politician who is a joke, In this case the Governor. The military that can think only one way, use force to solve the problem! The Sheriff who is level headed but nonetheless is a puppet on a string, The local kids who manage to save the day with more common sense than the adults, The comical locals in the town. Despite all these elements this movie works and is entertaining. It's a little on the tame side by today's standards but still holds up well.
