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

excellent! Joyful, playful and educational!
1 May 2006 | by danicadillySee all my reviews

This series is excellent and stands out in children's (and adults!) entertainment. It is educational with joyful and playful abandon. I highly recommend it for all ages but especially if you are looking for great role models and riveting entertainment for your children. My 5 year old has been watching the DVD's since he was 2 and he still bounces around the room like a kangaroo while he watches these favorites! We have to get these wonderful Canadian(?) DVD's posted to us here in Australia and eagerly anticipate each new release. If you are a parent in North America count yourself very fortunate to have such easy access to these fabulous productions. I highly recommend every DVD produced to date by "Zoboomafoo". Enjoy!
