I'm always looking for shows that my kids can watch and enjoy that don't entirely irritate me. A while back, they discovered a new show that I absolutely love and that completely cracks them up. The Wild Thornberrys is a classic Nickelodeon show that, like all of the classic Nickelodeon shows, is entertaining for both kids and parents.

The premise of the show follows the Thornberry family as they travel the world looking for rare animals to film and focuses on their daughter, Eliza, who has the ability to speak to animals. Not only is the show adventurous and hilarious but, the focus on different continents and animal species gives it an educational value as well. And, the fact that Tim Curry lends his amazing voice to the cast just makes it all the better for me!

I know that there are a lot of parents out there that are like me, looking for fun cartoons that appeal to different aged children. Both my 4 year old and 7 year old enjoy The Wild Thornberrys equally and it's nice to have something they can watch with no arguing. Whether you've never seen The Wild Thornberrys or are already fans, I definitely recommend the recently released season one dvd from Nickelodeon and Shout! Factory. Also, check out the movie Rugrats Go Wild that pairs up the Rugrats cast with the Thornberrys for a fun adventure. My kids love it!

Tune in to Nickelodeon for all their great shows and be sure to check out their fall lineup that will include a block of programming called "The 90s Are All That" and will include a rotation of iconic 90s animated and live action shows! I personally cannot wait for that!

You can get The Wild Thornberrys Season One DVD in retail stores nationwide and online at places like amazon.com.
