''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.

* ButThisIsRidiculous: When one of the brothers see their sleeping bag moving because there's a kitten inside: "I know I haven't washed my sleeping bag in a while but this is ridiculous"!

Added DiffLines:

* GadgeteerGenius: The Kratts built (in-universe) several contraptions over the course of the show, including an invisibility machine and artificial wings for Zoboo. Zoboomafoo himself showed a knack for this when he created a machine to communicate with plants, but by chance it [[WeirdnessCensor never worked while the Kratts were around]].

*** And as an aside, notice that some of the animals who appear MUST have had help, like that pair of nurse sharks early on. Someone had to set up the pool for them, and then put them in.
