It’s funny how with a 4 year old and 10 year old how many things can change in the time from when the 10 year old was 4. Television is one of those things. When Johnny was littler his must have shows Rugrats, Wild Thornberrys, Danny Phantom, and Jimmy Neutron. Now you’ll be lucky if you can find them on air. Sometimes he’ll reference one of the shows to his little brother and Gavin just doesn’t know what he’s talking about because great shows like The Wild Thornberrys ran until 2004 and Gavin wasn’t born in 2006.
The first title to be released will be The Wild Thornberrys: Season One, which will arrive in stores on May 17, 2011. Produced by Klasky-Csupo for Nickelodeon, 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.
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. Encounter wildlife in all its natural glory and eavesdrop on Eliza’s conversations with silverback gorillas, pythons, crested grebes, tapirs, capybaras, antelopes and opossums while the CommVee travels on!
We really enjoyed sharing The Wild Thornberrys: Season 1 DVD with Gavin. Johnny said he remembered the show when he saw the cover but it wasn’t until we started watching that he really remembered. We haven’t watched all 4 disc’s yet but we’ve watched quite a bit of the 7.5 HOURS and Gavin is already enjoying it! He sometimes pretend that he too can understand animals and help them out. Johnny of course doesn’t remember it that well so for him it’s almost like watching it again for the first time.
