This is a very fun movie. My sisters, friends and I grew up watching Cheetah and it is a bit of a cult favorite amongst us. The scenery is beautiful, the characters are fun, the animals are gorgeous and outwitting poachers is awesome! We learned the words to the Swahili song in the movie and we still love that song. We loved the movie so much that my mom promised to take us to Africa in ten years (note to parents: never make promises you don't intend to keep assuming that a six-year old will not remember it in ten years). Of course we never made it to Africa, but when I was 16 we had a Cheetah viewing party in honor of it. The movie was a little cheesier than I remembered it from when I was little, but we still loved it. I have been looking for Cheetah at video stores since then, but it seems to have been forgotten since VHS phased out. I just found out it is now available on DVD, and although I have never bought a movie in my life, I think I may just have to buy this one for my kids (I won't be promising them trips to Africa though)!
