The Wild Thornberrys is Klasky-Csupo's third Nicktoon, about a family of filmakers that specializes in nature documentaries.
Unlike other Nicktoons, which have 2 stories in each half-hour program (aside from specials), each story on The Wild Thornberrys is one program-length (30 minutes) story. Also, the series is more serious and adventurous in tone; there are some scenes played for laughs, though not many in this series.
Here's a list of characters and their voices that will appear (in order from left-to-right):

their first televised episode.
