Zazoo U is a school for the adventurous. Its students consist of Griz, a hoggish stubborn but good-hearted pig; Bully Wooly Mammoth, a gentle giant who loves to play the piano; and Slogo and Logan, two Eastern-European relatives who come from a carnival and bring their circus-antics into the school with them. And it's not just the students: Miss Devine is an extravagant bohemian teacher with a pet "rarf" (an unknown species); the science lecturer, Dr Russell, is a walrus; and the music teacher thinks of himself as the new Frank Sinatra and always sings a song. Much of the school's involves talent agents from outer space, invisible strings seen only through imagination, and most notably live-action kids who stampede around when the bell rings (woe betide anyone in their path). However, in spite of all these insane occurrences, there is always a sane moral at the center of the story that aids in instructing a lesson to the students as well as the viewer. Written by Q.

Neat cartoon
7 October 2003 | by (NY, USA) – See all my reviews

This show ran about 13 episodes in the fall of 1990 on Fox on Saturday mornings. It was a kid's cartoon, but it had some pretty creative plots & characters including a cockroach who talked like Jack Nicholson and an elephant that sounded like Nixon.

The show was very 'artsy' and I mean that in a good way. More effort was put into the scripts and voices than the animation. Each episode would revolve around some type of 'life lesson' but didn't cram it down your throat.

Way back before the internet I asked about this show on a CompuServe forum. Apparently it was created & bankrolled by a sort of hippie guy who inherited money from his family's mannequin empire(!) He was listed in the credits, Shane McSomebody, I can't quite remember. Each episode was based on a poem he had written and each poem was read by the narrator at the end of each show.

Anyway, apparently the show was so different and 'artsy' that most of the Fox affiliates refused to air it. A few even demanded that Fox drop it, they though it was so weird and annoying. Remember this was the days before The Powerpuff Girls, Samurai Jack or Dexter's Lab. This was still the time of The Smurfs, Muppet Babies and Ninja Turtles.
