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

Heck, I'm 22, and I love it!
20 September 2001 | by JBoze313See all my reviews

This is a great show. I'm 22, and I watch the show all the time. It teaches a lot to kids and adults...I sure as heck don't know half of the facts they give about various wild animals. The Kratt brothers have an awesome chemistry together, and they're very good on the screen. The lemur, I think it is, is cute, and it works really well also. The show is clearly aimed at children, but for adults, it's a fun way to learn new stuff about all sorts of animals, and because of that, I highly recommend it. 10/10
