"Charlie, the Lonesome Cougar" was one of the first signs things were starting to not go well for the Disney company a few years after Walt Disney's death. Though movies similar to this one were made while Walt was alive, they weren't this juvenile in nature. It's a movie that really spoon-feeds entertainment to its audience instead of letting the audience find their own way to be entertained. There's extremely juvenile slapstick, not much in the way of plot, and a narrator who not only WILL NOT SHUT UP, speaks in a condescending manner to the audience. And the movie's idea of a cougar being sympathetic is kind of silly; I don't know about you, but I find cougars to be grumpy and kind of vicious.
To be fair to the movie, it's not completely bad. There are some impressive visuals here and there. Also, the movie does ultimately make the (correct) argument that cougars are WILD animals and deserve to be left alone in the wilderness instead of being domesticated. Apart from that, there's very little to entertain adults or today's modern children. Unless you want to hear a 1960s rap song (!) about a cougar.
