Blast From The Past! The Wild Thornberrys: Season One May 17th

The Wild Thornberrys: Season One DVD Arrives in Stores on May 17, 2011

I have to admit how excited I was to hear of this release. As a teenager I got to that too cool for Cartoons phase, but secretly LOVED The Wild Thornberrys and a few other Classic NickToons and shows. I am able to share a lot of my "old time" favorites with my children in the form of Reruns. The Wild Thornberrys is one show, I have yet to see rerun, and have yet to share with my kids. I of course jumped at the opportunity to check out  this DVD of season one and share a favorite of mine with my children.

"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! "

If your unfamiliar with the Wild Thornberry's this is  one of those family friendly cartoons that I love just as much as my children. We all sat down together and watched the first few episodes in the 4 DVD collection. My children 3-11 all enjoyed it, just as much as I thought they would. Here is a cute slide show introducing the characters.

The release of these DVDs is part of Nickelodeon’s commitment to bring back classic shows. Nickelodeon will also launch a new nighttime programming block this fall on TeenNick called “The ‘90s Are All That!,” featuring a rotating selection of iconic live-action and animated shows from Nickelodeon’s 1990s.

I am so excited to see what else they have in store. I was a huge Nick fan as a child and even as a teen. Those of you that follow me regularly know what a fan I am of sharing parts of my childhood with my own children and after a hit with the introduction of The Wild Thornberrys I can't wait to see what else is in store for release, to share with my children and to bring back some great childhood memories for myself!

Buy It: Featuring all 20 action-packed episodes, the collectible 4-DVD box set is priced to own at a suggested retail price of $29.93. In Stores on May 17, 2011

The Wild Thornberrys is THE best cartoon from Nick ever! I watched it with my older kids when they were young. We would all curl up in a ball on the chase lounge and watch it for hours. I am so glad that they finally put in on dvd, because I have been waiting forever. Now my youngest, age 6, will get to enjoy it too. Hope they do Rugrats too.
