What's the story?
JUNGLE JUNCTION is a place like no other, where colorful animals on wheels speed through the forest on soaring roads that float among the trees. It’s here that Zooter (voiced by Janet James), Ellyvan (Billy West), Dozer (Keith Wickham), and their friends head off for adventures that teach them about friendship and respect for their environment. When troubles arise, the friends rely on their communication and problem-solving skills to smooth things over and get back on track.

Their adventures are the stuff of youngsters’ imaginations, so kids are sure to enjoy tagging along for the ride.
With trademark Disney expertise, Jungle Junction also weaves excellent lessons into its storylines, encouraging kids to retain directions, follow road signs, and practice skills like counting.
