"It's the New Zoo Revue, coming right at you!"
Thus began each episode of this cheerful children's program, set in a neighborhood inhabited by oversize animals and their human friends. Doug and Emmy Jo (real life husband and wife Doug Momary and Emily Peden) were the humans, joined by know-it-all Charlie the Owl, southern belle Henrietta Hippo and carefree Freddie the Frog.
Other human friends included Mrs. Goodbody, a well-meaning but nosy neighbor and Mr. Dingle, the postmaster.
Episodes generally were not unlike a sitcom, aimed at teaching the youthful viewers simple lessons such as manners, getting along, trying new things and humility.
