Storyline

Chris and Martin Kratt meet their friend Zoboomafoo (a talking Sifaka Lemur from Madagascar) at the Animal Junction, a place where various other animals like to come and hang out. Together they introduce young viewers to the animal world through songs, video clips, and several forms of animation. 'Zoboo' also tells stories about his imaginary world of 'Zobooland', and a little girl named Jackie and the "Animal Helpers" provide short reports on ways people interact with animals. Through education, this upbeat show encourages kids to "Make an animal friend today!" Written by Stephanie Paris

mongonsecka I can't believe my mind i love that show
28 June 2007 | by (United States florida) – See all my reviews

Zoboomafoo is a great show for learning about animals for example (Aye Aye). In this show comes with few minute of Zoboo land stories. The characters in Zoboo land is Sempson, Zoboo, Narche, Gooble, Snow lemur, and other more character. Zoboomafoo did perfect for the animals name like Toothbrush the elephant. Gorden Robertson did a great voice with Zoboo. The hedgehog's are very cute. Whats funny that Tooth brush plays the harmonica. The Kratt Brothers are very smart in this show. The coatis are also cute. Whats cool is that there is a food machine. The tooth comb is very interesting. Merdall the blood hound is very beautiful.
