Wild Thornberries, The - Wrong Accent!
On the episode of The Wild Thornberrys when the family goes to Rotorua in New Zealand, I noticed a number of things wrong.
1. When they met the New Zealand people, I was annoyed to hear the creators had given the people Australian accents! Although Australia is near New Zealand we don't have the same accents and they definitely had an Australian accent. (I should know, I live in New Zealand.)
2. On the part where Eliza takes the luge, the one she takes looks nothing like the real luge in New Zealand, (which is kind of like a theme park with lots of tracks, not just one little track like on the episode.)
More research should have been done on New Zealand by the creators to avoid slip ups like these as it has offended many Maori people living in New Zealand.
