The stories of the animal inhabitants of a place called Zoobilee Zoo, including Van Go, a lion who loves art; Bill Der, a handyman beaver; Bravo, a theatrical fox; Talkatoo, a cockatoo who lives up to her name; Lookout, an adventure-loving bear; and Whazzat, a music and dance loving kangaroo. Thier adventures are narrated by their leader, a wise leopard called Mayor Ben. Written by
No one can compare Zoobilee Zoo to today's shows; they took the time to make great songs and great costumes. The story behind the world they lived in was not just skin deep. I think the 80s was a time when the industry cared about children as an audience not just a dollar. My personal favorite was Whazzat Kangaroo, played by Louise Vallance, who has since voiced many many children's shows including Moira MacTaggert in X-men Evolution.
Also can you believe that some Christian fanatics actually think that this show could be evil and may have supported bestiality...they forced an edited version explaining to children all the bible references to sleeping with an animal. They are so dizzy!
I tap my foot to rock'n'roll... The Devil is in my shoe!
