The hit series The Wild Thornberrys follows the Thornberry family as they travel the world in their Communications Vehicle (or CommVee) looking for rare animals to film. After an encounter with a mysterious shaman, their youngest child Eliza is given the power to speak to animals. Travelling to every corner of the world with her family of daffy documentarians, Eliza uses her fantastic skill to learn about the lifestyles and habitats of the world’s most exotic creatures. Encounter wildlife in all its natural glory and eavesdrop on Eliza’s conversations with silverback gorillas, pythons, crested grebes, tapirs, capybaras, antelopes and more while the CommVee travels on!
With its vibrant animation and charming storytelling, plus an all-star voice cast featuring Lacey Chabert (Party Of Five), Tim Curry (The Adventures Of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius) and Flea (The Red Hot Chili Peppers) The Wild Thornberrys is an epic adventure that’s fun for the whole family.
I’ve always been a fan of animation. I’ve never thought that cartoons were just for kids, and if the popularity of adult-oriented animated shows has anything to say about it, there are plenty of people who agree with me.
But I like the kid stuff too! I used to watch The Wild Thornberrys back during its original run from 1998-2004, so I was excited about introducing my girls to this classic show. Some of it goes a little over my three-year-old’s head, but she still likes it. Both my girls have been enjoying it so far, and I love that this globetrotting family encourages an appreciation for animals and different cultures. It’s like they’re an unschooling family, from before anyone really knew what that was!
