I must admit that The Wild Thornberrys was my most favorite cartoon show in the 1990's.  That really say's a lot since, I was a married working adult at the time.  The hit series 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 an African shaman, their youngest child Eliza was given the power to speak to animals! Every episode in this adventure-packed DVD set, follows Eliza as she comes face-to-face with an assortment of animals, continents and danger. The Wild Thornberrys family includes Nigel, the father, as he hosts a TV series shot by Marianne, the mother. Along for the trip are Eliza (the real star of the show), Debbie (the "cool" sister), Darwin (a chimpanzee), and Donnie (a... wild child). Join them as they trek across the world, finding adventure along the way.

The release of this DVD is part of Nickelodeon’s commitment to bring back classic shows. Nickelodeon will also launch a new nighttime programming block this fall on TeenNick called “The ’90s Are All That!,” featuring a rotating selection of iconic live-action and animated shows from Nickelodeon’s 1990s.
