It’s been really fun, as an adult, to see older television shows debut on DVD for my children to fall in love with as I did. For instance, I’ve been DYING for my daughter to watch Full House. Seriously. Full House. Who didn’t love that show? Oh my gosh, I wanted to be Stephanie Tanner SO bad.
Anyhow, another TV series is hitting DVD at your local store in the form of Nickelodeon and The Wild Thornberrys! We’re so excited to learn more about Eliza and the animals she talks to in Season One.
On May 17th Shout! Factory will release The Wild Thornberrys: Season One on DVD. Vibrant animation, exotic locations, charming storytelling plus an all-star voice cast, including Lacey Chabert (Party Of Five), Tim Curry (The Adventures Of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius) and Flea (The Red Hot Chili Peppers) make season one of The Wild Thornberrys an epic family adventure. This DVD release has long been anticipated by fans but has not been available in stores until now. 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!
Characters Up Close:
Thanks to Nickelodeon, we had the chance to check out The Wild Thornberrys. For us? It was a WHOLE brand new series because my children have NEVER seen it before now. They weren’t even born when The Wild Thornberrys first debuted on television, so it was fun to discover the characters together with them.
I knew it would be a hit since they are just now discovering Rugrats and have really taken to the liking of the animation of that series. The Wild Thornberrys series is very similar and they, immediately, to the liking of Eliza.
The Wild Thornberrys premiered in September 1998 and aired until 2004 with reruns airing on Nicktoons and CBS from 2002-2007. The Wild Thornberrys DVD release has long been anticipated by fans but has not been available instores until now. With that said, I remember my oldest, who’s almost 9-yrs-old, being a baby when the show was airing, but it was still too old for him, as we were still very much into preschool series on Nick Jr.
I love that Nickelodeon is bringing back old favorites to attract a new audience. My children loved the DVD and we, especially, like that the Season 1 was bundled together in 4 discs so we can follow along at our own pace.
Featuring all 20 action-packed episodes, the collectible 4-DVD box set is priced to own at a suggested retail price of $29.93 at stores like Wal-Mart, Target, and even online at Amazon.com. DEAL ALERT: Buy The Wild Thornberrys Season One on DVD at Amazon for $21.99.
