The Swiss Family Robinson recounts the courageous exploits of the Robinson family after they are shipwrecked on a deserted island.
For six days and nights, a storm tosses the Robinson family's ship around on the sea. But the thundering waves have swept them off to a tropical island, where a new life awaits them. The family is alone! But nothing can keep the cheerful Swiss family Robinson down for long.
Father and Mother Robinson, along with their four irrepressible boys, quickly settle into their new home, mining the shipwreck for supplies, discovering valuable resources on the island and animal friends, and a wondrous landscape bursting with exotic wildlife and plants, even turning the treetops into their own lofty sanctuary. Using teamwork and ingenuity, they overcome the obstacles of naturean irresistible tale of ingenuity.
