Alien bros Zig and Zag crash land in humdrum suburbia and set up home. On their fun filled adventures they 'make the most' of what Planet Earth has to offer. You'll never have neighbours as out-of-this-world as Zig and Zag.
Did You Know?
The original RTE TV origin back story, started with their introduction on RTE children's programs continuity strand Dempsey's Den/The Den/Den TV, in 1987, as having crashed landed in Dublin, Ireland. They accumulated a huge adult cult following even though they were actually just doing continuity between the programs. Later they moved their career to the UK where they would be most well-known for work on Channel Four's Big Breakfast. This brand-new animated children programs semi-reboot RTE/CBBC version seemingly has Zig and Zag land on somewhere in the north of England/Midlands, which is perfectly understandable localization choice considering the much larger UK audience, and there's a chunk of BBC funding the co-production.
