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

The poor kids can't spell the title!
1 January 2004 | by (Sacramento, CA) – See all my reviews

And neither can I! But I'm 32...soon to be 33.

I saw a few episodes and liked it. I love the leaping lemur's colorful animated sequences and the cartoons of mysterious lumps turning into cute animals! It's such a whimsical "Animal Planet" show for preschoolers where the grown brothers play around with all kinds of critters and run off into adventures with their camping equipment to explore the wilderness. It's a real romp in the vine-covered playroom indeed!
