Storyline

Eliza Thornberry is not your ordinary kid. It's not just because she travels the world in an RV with her parents Nigel and Marrianne, famous nature show hosts. Eliza is doubly unique because she was granted the magical ability to talk with and understand animals. Together with her teen-age sister Debbie, her pet monkey Darwin, and her wild-boy foster brother Donnie, Eliza gets involved with many different wildlife (and wild adventures).

Quotes

Eliza Thornberry: This is me, Eliza Thornberry, part of your average family. I've got a dad, a mom, and a sister. There is Donnie - we found him. And Darwin, he found us. Oh yeah, about our house - it moves, because we travel all over the world. You see, my dad hosts this nature show, and my mom shoots it. Okay, so we're not that average. And between you and me, something amazing happened... and now I can talk to animals. It's really cool, but totally secret. And you know what? ...

2 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was one of the best children's shows-ever. I watched it when I was young and I watch it now. I learned so much about animals. There were so many good qualities in it, like how it was 30 minutes long per episode, not one episode in 15 minutes. It made me appreciate the wildlife in the world. It was very exciting, too, and it was more than just "And the snake slithers...catching it's prey..." it had family drama in it too. The siblings fought, the 16 year old just wanted a place where no one would bother her. It was comedic as well, the dad was just hysterical and the mom funny. The movies also had the same qualities as the show, and because they could be longer, they got more in depth with animals. I'm annoyed they took the show away, but maybe one day they'll bring it back.
