- 3 Seasons
The show features the Kratt brothers, who always arrive at their safari outpost called Animal Junction with various questions about animals they've seen or heard about. To help them answer these questions, they call on their friend Zoboomafoo, or Zoboo for short, who turns out to be a lemur. After the Kratt brothers give Zoboo a snack, he gains the ability of human speech, and so can answer their questions as well as teach them even more about various animals. While advertised as a children's show, Zoboomafoo is appropriate, enjoyable, and informative for viewers of any age who want to increase their knowledge of animals throughout the world. The format of the show is elementary, but the facts are in depth and engaging. In addition to facts about wildlife, Zoboomafoo also teaches about plant life, and a handful of Malagasy words, a spoken African language.
