Eliza claims in one episode that alligators are "the closest things we have to a living dinosaur". In reality, cassowaries are much closer. Pterosaurs weren't dinosaurs at all.

Jane Goodall in "The Trouble with Darwin". As Long as It Sounds Foreign: The old Bornean woman who tells Eliza that Donny is returning to his real family has a vague continental-African accent, instead of anything remotely Bornean, where it be Malay or otherwise.The Wild Thornberrys: Wild As F*** - Robot Chicken - Adult Swim
Debbie and Eliza, as demonstrated numerous times in the series. Even in the movie, Debbie gave Eliza a goodbye hug before Eliza was sent to London, and Eliza is willing to lose her power to save Debbie.
Every Thornberry has shown fair amounts of badassery in several occasions, especially when protecting each other. The shaman who gave Eliza her powers was turned into a boar by the highest shaman in his tribe for devouring his prized sheep. Debbie, in most of her outfits. Inverted on an episode. Eliza tried to greet a bat only for the bat to scream "Human!

Kip O'Donnel and Niel Biederman, a pair of poachers who occasionally antagonize the titular family, are the closest the show has to a main antagonist. Other than the pilot, they only appear in seven episodes before disappearing completely after the second season.
While she always bickers with Eliza and doesn't care for her interests, she's always the first person to jump in and save her sister's life once things look their worst, often diving headfirst into danger without much reservation for her own safety. The "Debbie goes looking for Eliza in the wilderness, finds her in jeopardy and saves her life" bit was used so often that they lampshaded it when it happened in the series finale. Bigfoot, Sasquatch and Yeti: Even though Eliza annoyed the crap out of her, you can bet that the minute her sister's in danger, Debbie will always jump in to save her.
When Debbie attempted to teach Donnie proper words, she tried getting him to say "apple". He picked up said fruit and repeatedly said "pomme", the French word for apple. Debbie manages to learn the click-heavy language of the! Kung Bushmen from one of her favorite musician's songs.
Eliza's vision is pretty bad without her glasses, as shown many times. Debbie, Donnie and Eliza in that order. In "Valley Girls", Eliza takes a tape recorder from Debbie without asking for permission. After trying to take a boulder from some gorillas to push the ComVee out of the mud, she learns from the gorillas that if you want something, you should ask for it.
Same episode later then has a shark relentlessly attacking the family and the raft they're on, even after being hit on the snout with a diving cylinder. It was attracted to the scent of Debbie's blood, but still. In "Cheetahs Never Prosper", one of Eliza's more moderate actions — trying to spray a little water so a cheetah mother and cub can have a drink during the dry season — is forbidden by her parents on the grounds that it would be interfering with nature.
Fair enough, except that Eliza's habit of assisting any wild animal she comes across or simply playing with them because they exist is very well known by her parents. If adopting a full grown male chimp from the Congo was interfering with nature, they never said anything about it. Debbie frequently popped bubble gum but a more notable example comes from "Rain Dance". Marianne tells Debbie to give Donnie some of her bubble gum to keep his mouth from going dry; Donnie eagerly chews the gum, blows up a giant bubble and bursts it all over himself and Debbie.
Nigel, whose goofiness verges on Genius Ditz at times. And his father Radcliffe Thornberry is shown to be just as goofy and fun-loving. But like his son, he is very competent. For all his numerous eccentricities, Nigel has a near encyclopaedic knowledge of animals.
Debbie and Darwin butt chimp?
The Wild Thornberrys
Kip and Biederman, the only recurring antagonists on the show, disappeared after the second season. The ComVee probably counts, even if it's not really a car — it's apparently the size of an apartment, has at least one smaller vehicle stored inside it, is amphibious and seaworthy, can handle wilderness and mountain ranges, and can enter a nigh invulnerable "security mode".
Death by Origin Story: Same can be said about the whole family. Marianne always drives, and she never asks for directions even when her sense of direction isn't exactly the best though it works out. Eliza mistakenly believes this trope of a wheelchair-bound girl with cerebral palsy in "New Territory".
A Dog Named "Dog": Eliza's glasses tend to fall off fairly often. Naturally she is unable to see very well without them. Everything's Better with Monkeys: Technically, Darwin is a chimpanzee. Sloan and Bree Blackburn from the Movie are far worse. Kip O'Donnell speaks in a very raspy voice and occasionally appears alongside Biederman to antagonize the Thornberrys. The shaman who gave Eliza her gift in the first place comes from a tribe of Magical Nigerians.
In-UniverseThe Foundation that Nigel and Marianne work for and which produces their show sometimes tries to do things to boost ratings despite the show being very popular already. Things start looking up when Angelica sings about having hope on her karaoke machine which resembles a toy piano she brought, until Spike's tail accidentally knocks both her Cynthia doll and karaoke machine into the ocean.
The next morning, they arrive on a small, seemingly uninhabited island possibly in Southeast Asia and Angelica eventually finds her Cynthia doll on the beach. The adults argue about who should be the leader. When it gets out of hand, Betty suggests a test: They all step out and say that they all feel better, except Stu, and make Betty the leader, much to Stu's chagrin.
On the opposite side of the island is the famous globe-trotting family the Thornberrys out to film a clouded leopard. Tommy, Chuckie, and the rest of the kids, except for Angelica, set off to find them, for they suspect they are somewhere on the island. Along the way, Chuckie gets lost and runs into the Thornberry's Tarzan -like child Donnie, who steals Chuckie's clothes.
Meanwhile, Eliza, the gifted Thornberry, is exploring about the jungle with Darwin, her chimpanzee companion and runs into Spike, the Pickles' dog. Since Eliza can talk to animals, Spike now voiced by Bruce Willis talks for the first time although he spoke in Chuckie's dream sequence in the episode "In the Dreamtime" ; he informs her that his babies are lost somewhere on the island. Under the impression that Spike means he is looking for puppies, Eliza and a reluctant Darwin agree to help him find them.

Following a close encounter with Siri, an angry clouded leopard whom Spike believes to be just a regular domestic catthey learn that he meant the human babies. Simultaneously, Eliza's father, Nigel, finds the lost babies. He heads in their direction but ends up tumbling down a hill and suffers amnesia after a coconut falls on his head.
