Zoobiliee Zoo
23 May 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I used to watch this when I went to America with my family. Being taken out of School for four Weeks was tough on a kid of 7, (although the idea of spending 4 weeks in America now is so tempting, but back then you just wanted to stay with your friends). Zoobilee Zoo gave me such a warm homely feeling, especially when my and my little sister used to curl up on the big huge sofa's at my aunt's house and eat doughnuts for breakfast and sat around in our pj's. However the reason I wanted to add a comment was because a lot of people couldn't remember the theme tune. So here you go.. It's too catchy.....
