Editorial Reviews

Featuring 25 Great Adventure Episodes! White Fang the television series is an adaptation of Jack London's similarly titled novel, which has been heralded as one of the greatest adventure stories of all time. So well loved was the tale of a boy and his loyal wolf-dog that the story spawned a feature film, an animated series, and the TV series that is featured here. These are the exciting tales of a teenage boy, Matt Scott (Jaimz Woolvett), who is devoted to his loyal canine companion White Fang, and the breathtaking adventures they share in the untamed wilderness of the Rocky Mountains.

I didn't expect much from this series, but I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. Original plots? Not Really. How many other shows / movies have there been about a boy and his dog? Plenty (um, remember Lassie?). For these reasons, most people looking for 'serious' entertainment are disappointed in the show. But those people are missing the point: sometimes it is possible (and good) to be entertained by the simple things in life.

The stories move at a nice pace. The Happy Ending is the norm. The acting is very good from all involved, particularly from Jaimz Woolvett, who in this role sounds a lot like Michael J. Fox as Marty McFly. The scenery is absolutely gorgeous; set I believe in Montana, the show was actually filmed in New Zealand. Some reviewers have mentioned that the music is a little annoying. The music has that early '90s light rock vibe which I don't mind, though I can see how it could be distracting to some. The show is very clean from a moral standpoint; wholesome family values are the point of most relationships and plots. There is no cursing / sex or anything like that. The level of the writing is probably for kids, ages 9 - 13.

I particularly loved the relationship between the dog and the boy, which isafter all the point of the show, but just as much I liked the relationship the kid has with his parents. There is an attempt to guide, while allowing him to develop as a person, combined with a genuine concern with his welfare. It is the kind of program you might have seen on the Family Channel back in the day, like the New World Zorro series with Duncan Regehr. A great show that provides pleasantly simple entertainment.

White Fang the series is yet another retelling of Jack London's famous book of the same name. Whereas the book tells about White Fang in the roll of a sled dog living in the Klondike gold rush years, this series moves the story to current times in the Rocky mountains and adds the inevitable 'boy and his loyal dog' twist to the concept. About the only similarities are White Fang's name and that he was rescued from a cruel man called Beauty Smith.
Why T.V. producers can't seem to come up with an original show with a dog hero and not just reuse a well known story is beyond me. Anyway, White Fang sports fairly good acting, beautiful scenery, and a terrible soundtrack. If you can get over the music, this show is enjoyable in its own right. White Fang is an Alaskan malamute (although they portray him as the stereotypical "wolfdog") who exhibits extraordinary good sense and often rescues his not so bright family from danger with fairly standard hero-dog skills like rescuing drowning people, fending off "wolves" (other malamutes in makeup) and locating important clues at crime scenes. Although the plot lines are simplistic, this is nicely balanced by a lack of gore and swearing, making it acceptable family viewing.
If you are nuts about Nordic breeds and will watch anything featuring them, this show is for you. Others may want to avoid this particular series.

I enjoyed seeing good old family entertainment, and the great relationship between the boy and his parents, and of course, the magnificent wolf-dog, "White Fang." A writer can't make many more variations about a boy and his dog but the movie folks did a good job on this one. The scenery was beautiful. Maybe if our young people got back to movies and human stories such as these, rather than all the violent video games, the world might not have to endure these terrible mass killings. A good series for the family - very enjoyable and wholesome.

White Fang is an awesome wholesome USA family series. Our 9 and 7 year old grandaughters love White Fang and so do we. We are excited to find a good movie series that shows family love, loyalty, and moral values. It is plain to see the right from the wrong like the good old days. It's refresing to see a great family show that actually has GOOD Language!!!

This is a nice series for a family to watch..... our 9 year old often asks intelligent questions about what's happening on the screen, and there's not a thing that we've been uncomfortable with him seeing. I probably wouldn't watch this on my own, but it's refreshing to have a family oriented show that is only mildly hokey.

I purchased this at a local store for $5, so I can't complain about the price too much. But I would certainly not pay more than that for this series. As another reviewer stated, the music is just horrible! The plots have no depth, and are so short that really not much happens, and what does happen is predictable. Some of the plots had potential if they had been longer. Sometimes the acting is a little too obvious and not very realistic.

Also, this has nothing to do with Jack London's book. The only similarity is the name of the dog.

I would recommend this instead. Call of the Wild-Complete Series It, too, has nothing to do with Jack London's book, but the story is much better.

If you are an adult, perhaps you will want a different series. But if you are a young boy, this series has everything you want: Beautiful outdoor scenery, animals of all kinds, some fighting and posturing, lots of drama and happy endings. My son is not old enough to read the Jack London book, but he enjoys this tale of a modern boy and his faithful dog. One thing that irks me is so many of the actors seem to be German and are having problems sounding like rural mountain men. German actors in New Zealand playing mountain men in the Northern Rockies? Oh well, it's TV, not the History channel.
