The Wild Thornberrys

The Wild Thornberrys

Fall 2000 Television
Ages: 2 - 11 yrs.
Producer: Nickelodeon
Review:
The Wild Thornberrys tackle some surprisingly mature issues, from the at times brutal cycles of the natural world to intra-family tensions and loyalty. Best of all, it addresses issues of ecology and conservation without lapsing into Captain Planet-style preachiness. The characters are stylized and appealing, and the backgrounds rich enough to convey the splendor of the various natural wonders visited by the Thornberry family. Great, sympathetic characters, a non-condescending attitude and nonstop action and humor make this a definite winner with kids.
