Zoboomafoo was one of those shows that not everyone remembers, but those who do absolutely LOVE it.

The Kratt brothers would take us on interesting trips all over the place and teach about super cool animals. And of course they were always visited by their good buddy Zoboomafoo.

Zoboomafoo was an awesome lemur who would hop into the “Animal Junction” and would turn into a puppet after being fed some fruit. Then he could talk and interact with the Kratt brothers and tell us all about his time in the Zobooland.

He would start as the cutest lemur ever

And then turn into a goofy puppet who told the greatest jokes

He would tell us stories about Zobooland

The Kratt brothers were absolute treasures and their background in biology and zoology gave them a level of authority that managed to come across even though they were being big goofballs on TV.

But where did they go after Zoboomafoo ended?

They are actually still making educational television shows! The Kratts brothers starts a new animated series called Wild Kratts.

The plot of the show s that The Kratts have to save animals from villains, human interference, or sometimes just confusion.

They have a whole group of characters in the show including the Kratt brothers to solve the situations and teach kids about animals.

I feel like one of the best things about this is that they are still rocking the colors from the original show. Currently they are based in Ottawa and continue to work with animals.

Unfortunately Jovian, the lemur who played Zoboomafoo, passed away a couple years ago. At least he got to help teach kids all about lemurs in his time. He was 20 years old.

Do you miss watching Zoboomafoo? Did you realize the Kratt brothers still had a show on TV?
