Excellent family movie. The first time I saw this was when I was a child, probably on The Wonderful World of Disney when it was on broadcast TV. I enjoyed it almost as much now as I did then.
It's about an abandoned cougar kit that is taken in and raised by a ranger. Of course he's a mischievous kit and continues to be while growing up. He gets into all kinds of trouble, chased by a bear, dogs, getting lost, and even shot at, but survives it all. Even though he's been somewhat domesticated, he does finally return to the wild.
Charlie the Lonesome Cougar a Disappointment

"Charlie the Lonesome Cougar - a great family movie, right? Well, this is typical Disney fare with the animal story line and the great outdoor settings. And, I was pleased (and actually surprised) to find it available on DVD. The disappointment with me was two fold. First, the quality of the picture left something to be desired. While the picture is clear there are too many instances of scratches and splothes showing up during the movie which detracted from the beauty of the scenery. Secondly, the DVD version I watched had several minutes edited out. Maybe the imperfections in the original movie could not be fixed but I'm disapointed that I purchased this DVD, and without warning I ended up with a shorter, edited version. If you like this kind of family movie, get it. However, be prepared for a less than perfect, shorter version of it."

"This one is fun. Couger Mayhem and Couger Love. My six year old loves this one. It's the kind of movie that is fun to watch on Sunday night with a bowl full of popcorn."
Good Old Fashioned Entertainment!!

"This movie has stood the test of time, and it is a throw back to an era when Disney could make a film like this and let it stand on its own merits, instead of making many of the kinds of films it does today.
This is good old fashioned entertainment, and it focuses on "Charlie," and follows his escapades in the Northwest. It is both funny, suspenseful, sad, and maddening, as we see this cougar do the most outlandish things, because, of course, he is a cougar.
A great family film and highly recommended!!!"
