Adorable TV Show
14 November 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I vaguely remember this TV show but it still something about it stood out for me. It was about a little girl in Africa that has adopted a pet Bush Baby (a bush baby is one of the smallest primates, about the size of a squirrel. With its large round eyes and big ears, the bush baby is one of the most peculiar looking animals of the African bush. Bush babies are easy to catch, & several African tribes keep them as pets.) Plot Summary: When Jackie Roads, a British girl living in Kenya with her family, finds an ill animal called a Bushbaby, she adopts him, calls him Murphy and nurses him back to health. Murphy, Jackie, her family and their friends go on many adventures involving wild animals, poachers and more. But when Jackie's father is recalled to England, Jackie must leave her life in Africa behind. However, before she can go, Jackie, Murphy and Tembo, a friend of Jackie's father, go on one last adventure: they must cross the dangerous Savannah to escape the poachers and corrupt police officers chasing them. Along the way, Jackie teaches the now domesticated Murphy to survive in the wild, so that, before she leaves, she can release him in his natural habitat.
