TV Shows - New Zoo Revue

New Zoo Revue was a half-hour children's television show that originally aired in syndication from 1972 until 1977. The 196-episode musical comedy format show conveyed the concepts of cooperation and guidance for living in contemporary society. Each episode dealt with a topic like drugs, moving away, courtesy, bragging or patience. Though hosted by humans Doug and Emmy Jo, the show featured its costumed adult-sized puppet characters, primarily Freddie the Frog, Henrietta Hippo, and Charlie the Owl.

1 I was older than its normal demographics, but would watch it in the mornings sometime when I was home sick. I remember Freddy the Frog being kind of a juvenile delinquent, and the rest of the puppets, as well as Doug and Emmy were pretty bland. Kind of an "H.R. Puffinstuff" without the laughs. -- Submitted By: (GregEichelberger) on July 22, 2014, 5:12 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 This show was annoying and awful. However, the outtakes had me in tears I was laughing so hard. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on July 22, 2012, 10:45 pm - (6 votes) - Login to Vote
3 I remember watching this, probably earlier on since I was 10 in 1972. I liked Henrietta Hippo, but I thought the whole thing was a bit bizarre. -- Submitted By: (vickilaw) on July 22, 2012, 4:08 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
4 It was weird enough even without the knowledge of that outtake! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 6, 2011, 8:16 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Yep. It's still out there on YouTube. I'm not going to provide a link considering the rather crude nature of the humor. Not what you'd call 'PC'. But, it's still out there. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 4, 2011, 8:50 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
6 Found some funny stuff on YouTube several years ago regarding this show. Story is: Supposedly the actors who played the animals were some old-school off-off-Broadway actors who had the raunchiest senses of humor and would do little improvised skits to entertain the crew between set-ups. LOL funny stuff if you can find it still. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 4, 2011, 3:19 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
7 I can't believe I actually enjoyed this show as a kid. I even had the figurines. Thinking back in retrospect, it was really such a dumb show. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on August 21, 2010, 11:02 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
8 Yeah, I remember that one, shanequia! It WAS creepy. What exactly were Doug and Emmy Jo supposed to be doing with these animals? There were no cages (besides the treehouse elevator-don't ask ) and no one came by to pay admission but then, what kind of zoo would stay in business with just a ghastly white hippo- along with an owl and frog?! And it seemed the hippo was living in Doug and Emmy Jo's HOUSE (and the humans were supposed to be nothing more than boss and employee!). Oh, and it REALLY lost me (even as a kid) for having even more songs than 'H R Pufnstuf'-UGH! Yeah, I grant that Emmy Jo was cute in the miniskirt and go-go boots but if someone had just made a poster, there would have been no reason for anyone to willingly watch this show! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 29, 2010, 12:04 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
9 this one just down right creepy. -- Submitted By: (shanequia) on January 28, 2010, 3:54 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
10 Freddie! Dude! Put on some pants! -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 28, 2010, 1:46 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
