While many people may be excited to see the wonders of the world, Debbie Thornberry from the hit Nickelodeon show The Wild Thornberrys couldn’t care less. She finds the constant moving around, especially in remote areas of the world, a pretty big annoyance. She can rarely do the things typical girls her age take for granted such as going on dates or buying the latest CD.
Debbie also has quite the temper and she’s not afraid to show it off towards her family. While she may be disgruntled and cranky at times, she does care greatly for her family and will do whatever it takes to make sure they’re safe. Debbie is also one of the very few people who learns of Eliza’s secret ability to talk with wild animals around her. Eliza eventually gives up the ability though to save both of them from poachers.
