great quality,family friendly viewing, 16 June 2007
Author: disdressed12 from Canada

this comment refers to the 1976 television series which lasted 26 episodes although on this site it is shows just 10 episodes.y sister & i watched this show when we were young kids.and really liked it.fast forward thirty years,and we still enjoy it.this is one show where the appeal doesn't wear off like many shows of the time.i mean ,the acting is great,the scenery is very nice.the show may be dated,but it doesn't feel that way at all.i recently bought the complete series and i'm really glad i did.of all the actor sin the show,as far as i can tell,only Diana Leblanc,who played the mother Elizabeth, and Chris Wiggins,who played the father Johan(he was actually referred to as simply John on the show)actually acted much, before and after the show,although Ricky O'Neil who played Franz was in TV show episode and TV movie before then.anyway,as for "Swiss Family Robinson"i can't say enough for this show.it's family friendly,quality television.(very young children may be a bit frightened by some scenes)my vote for this show:10/10
