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 was 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!
Looking at the cover of the set we were sure that somewhat crazy and exciting was ahead. Teddy memorized all the character names after watching first DVD and said that Eliza looks like me ( I think because of braces). There always something happens during The Thornberrys trips, so it is fun to watch. Each child in Thornberry family has own personality and they often do not get along easy with each other. You find that in the series the whole family needs to be creative in order to make all their travels interesting and fun. Lady Thornberry who records travel videos is always with a film camera in her hands. She is also a very smart mom and often keeps kids out of trouble and settle everything. There are some really funny episodes and scenes, and we laughed with Teddy a lot.
