* ArtisticLicenseLinguistics: Zoboo's catchphrase "Mangatsika!" is a case of this. The word literally means "cold" in Malagasy (the language spoken in Madagascar), but in the show it's used to mean "cool" as in "interesting”.

** Wherever the Kratts want to travel to also always appears to be right next door. Animal Junction just seems to be everywhere at once.

* {{Revenge}}: In one episode, the brothers try to top each other's pranks. After Martin drops ice down Chris's pants, for example, Chris responds by replacing Martin's chair with a block of ice.

Added DiffLines:

* CutenessProximity: The Kratts react this way when they care for baby animals, like bear cubs or puppies.


Added DiffLines:

* EverybodyCallsHimBarkeep: Zoboo tells the Kratt brothers to call his parents "Zoboo's Mom" and "Zoboo's Dad."


Added DiffLines:

* ProperlyParanoid: In "Happy Lemur Day" both Martin and Chris have wild hair, which Zoboo happily combs with his teeth since lemur teeth are like tooth combs. To inform other lemurs that it's Lemur Day, the brothers go out, but not before packing tooth combs. While in the jungle, their hair gets messed up again and they have to comb it.


Added DiffLines:

* SkewedPriorities: When the Kratt brothers get stranded with seals on an island, due to their raft blowing a hole and a seal taking the patch kit, they at first decide to stay until realizing they'd miss Zoboo. That is not mentioning their families would miss them, and they would have to forage for food and shelter.

''Zoboomafoo'' is a 1999 educational children's show hosted by Chris and Martin Kratt (of ''KrattsCreatures'' fame). The Kratt brothers hang out with Zoboomafoo (Zoboo for short), an anthropomorphic lemur (or rather, a normal lemur who turns anthropomorphic under certain conditions) and play with animals in a fantasy place called Animal Junction. Every episode focuses on a different theme, such as baby animals, pets vs. wild animals, or just a specific type of animal. The episodes are broken up by occasional claymation stories about a place called Zobooland, as well as expeditions where the Kratt brothers leave Animal Junction to see animals in the wild.

** Zobooland ''might'' be in Madagascar, given Zoboo has once or twice expressed having to return to it, but its geography and wildlife certainly doesn't match it.
