Not Your Average Family

If you could talk to animals, you'd be Eliza Thornberry, the youngest daughter of a family famous for their TV wildlife series. Forced to keep her gift a secret or she’ll lose her powers, Eliza ventures through the wilds with her pet chimpanzee Darwin, making friends, finding trouble, and discovering what it really means to be a kid.

• Gabor and Arlene and Steve and David and Stephen •

The show was the third of six original series to be produced by Klasky Csupo, unquestionably the most successful creators ever to be part of the NAS family. The pair could never have dreamed of such success when they formed their own animation company in a spare room of their apartment in 1981.
