Movie Reviews

Humans who care
K. Reynolds | Norfolk, VA USA | 01/17/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"THE ANIMAL PLANET has some great series along with "Meercat Manor," "Big Cat Diary," "The Most Extreme," "E-Vet Interns," "Animal Precinct" and "Corwin's Quest." It continues to be one of the few channels families can watch together to be entertained and informed.

Some of these series have made their way to DVD. Now it looks as though the "Growing Up" episodes are being gathered into species or area specific compilations. "Growing Up Arctic" provides stories on orphaned young ones who live in the very cold: penguins, polar bears, seals and walrus. Rescued by caring humans, these stories are guaranteed to hit your "aw" response, no matter how old you are.

The little polar bear is found after his mother is shot by hunters. We first see him as a tiny ball of white fluff hiding in a corner, still calling for mom. The story follows him through zoo nurturing until he becomes a young adult. Will he be released into the wild or will he find a good home at another zoo? You are going to care. You'll also care about the baby walrus, seal and penguin, too. Let's hope there are more compilations in the future. - Kay Reynolds, The Virginian-Pilot
Television's most inspiring shows

"I have always been an animal lover, and through Animal Planet's "Growing Up" series, I have been so thoroughly inspired, that I am now on a path to leave my hum-drum job and work directly with animals. This well-priced DVD includes 4 different shows. The show with Nereus, the walrus, is such a wonderful story, that it is not difficult to become emotional as a viewer. The Growing Up series also has another wonderful DVD collection called Growing Up Wildcats. This DVD includes Lions, Tigers, a Black Leopard, and Cheetahs (my absolute favourite!!!). If you have children who are interested in animals - or even if you are an adult who admires God's creatures, this is a very educational set of DVD's that everyone should own. There are many other Animal Planet "Growing Up" episodes that are only available for viewing on their cable channel - PLEASE take the time to view them all. Hopefully, Animal Planet will release the other wonderful Growing Up episodes on DVD soon!"
Growing up Arctic, the best of the best.

"Growing up Arctic is one of my favorite dvd sets from Animal Planet. Watching this is very informative but also heartwarming. It shows the struggles of a baby polar bear, seals, walrus, and penguin. I recommend this for all ages."
Growing Up, Cutie

"Anyone who has ever loved a pet, or "ooo-ed" and "ahh-ed" at a cute puppy or kitten, will fall in love with the "Growing Up..." series from animal planet. Watching Nereus the orphaned Walrus cuddle up with his caretaker is reason enough to pay the $10-15 required to enjoy this video.

Also, including the "bonus" episode, "Growing Up Penguin," the running time is more like 168 minutes, instead of 126. This makes your investment even more worthwhile!"
