64 Zoo Lane

Show Summary

64 Zoo Lane is a charming animation series created by the award-winning director and creator An Vrombaut to captivate and inform young children. The series combines intelligent storytelling with a timeless, picture book quality, and features a whole range of diverse characters native to many parts of the world. Lucy lives at 64 Zoo Lane, right next door to the local zoo. Every night from her bedroom window, Lucy slides down Georgina the Giraffe's long neck to the Zoo below to meet the animals. Each animal, including Boris the Bear, Giggles and Tickles the two monkeys, Harriet the Hippo and Nelson the Elephant, have different tales to tell and each night they impatiently await their turn to tell her about their adventures. Lucy is the main character. and lives close to a zoo. Every night, the animals from the zoo join her to tell a story about a different animal in almost every episode. Opportunities for exploring language and vocabulary are enhanced by the use of intonation and expression in the character's voices. Playing with words in this way can promote an enjoyment of language and can be used as a springboard for understanding new vocabulary. The themes of the animals' stories support social and emotional issues, including friendships and helping and caring for others. 64 Zoo Lane was previously part of another show It's Itsy Bitsy Time which aired shortly on Fox Family. The show now airs on Noggin in 30 minutes instead of the 15 minutes, Noggin combines two episodes together.
