The Wild Thornberrys: Season One Review and Giveaway



I have always enjoyed watching the Nickelodeon network. They have fun shows for kids and the family. I have great memories as a kid during the summer watching Legends of the Hidden Temple game show with my family. One of the cool shows I remember watching was The Wild Thornberrys. I loved the idea of a family traveling the world in an RV while they shot a nature show. This would be my ideal life! The main star Eliza reminds me of Pippy Longstocking with her freckles and red pigtails. Another movie I am fond of!

I have really enjoyed sharing this cartoon with my son. He sat on my lap and we watched the family go on  their wild adventures. If I could only convince my husband we need to buy an RV, a camera and start our own nature show I would be living the dream! This cartoon is really cute and a fun adventure even if you don't want to live their life. It focuses on working together as a family and animal nature conservancy.

The whole first season is available on DVD on 4 discs on May 15, 2011. You can buy it from the Shout Factory website here.
