ZOBOOMAFOO: PLAY DAY AT ANIMAL JUNCTION is educational, environmentally conscious, ecologically friendly programming, and the Kratt brothers make it fun. Chris and Martin are something of an acquired taste; they tell corny jokes, they mug and grin at the camera, they fall down in the mud, and their simple, kindly faces make perfect targets for pie-throwing monkeys. And yet you have to hand it to them: They pack an awful lot of great stuff into a 50-minute program.

The show is hyperactive, unstructured, a mishmash of live-action, claymation, puppetry, and cartoon, but those goofy Kratt brothers pull it off with the help of their chatty lemur pal, Zoboomafoo.
