Benji the Hunted
G | 88 min | Friday, June 19, 1987
Everyone's favorite mutt, the lovable Benji, returns in the 1987 Walt Disney Productions children's film, Benji, the Hunted. Joe Camp, who created the Benji "franchise," directed.
The film opens as a newscast, with the announcement that Benji is missing somewhere in the backwoods of Washington and Oregon. Occasional shots of helicopters searching for him are seen throughout the movie.
When Benji comes across a mother cougar that's been killed by a hunter, he takes charge of the four surviving cubs. Not only does he feed them, but he also protects them from other predators such as a Kodiak bear and a timberwolf. Scenes of Benji carrying baby cougars in his teeth, one by one, is pure classic Disney.
Plenty of animals make appearances during Benji's adventure, including ferrets, raccoons and one very brave frog, who serves as a plaything for the baby cougars.
Benji, the Hunted is a nature lover's, as well as a dog lover's delight, once again proving that no one does nature and animals as well as Disney.
