Why does Disney always make movies about kids befriending animals and saving them from poachers? There are just too many to count. In spite of that, this is a good children's movie.
Two kids, Ted (Kieth Coogan) and Susan (Lucy Deakins), are living in Kenya with their parents who are scientists. Boredom overtakes these city kids until they adopt a cheetah and raise. Soon, however, they must release it into the wild, due to the obvious difficulties of raising an adult cheetah and the necessity of having it live outside of the captive. Except, their cheetah is taken up by those damn poachers. So, the kids and their parents, fight against the armed poachers to get it back.
This movie is quite similar to a "A Far Off Place" which was released a few years later, starring Reece Witherspoon and Ethan Embry. If you enjoy "Cheetah," you'll likely enjoy that one as well. These were pretty decent kids movies and ones that provide a gorgeous view of Sub Sahara Africa.
