The New Zoo Revue

The New Zoo Revue was a syndicated, half-hour show that ran from 1972-1977.

The 195-episode musical comedy[?] format show conveyed the concepts of cooperation and guidance for living in today's society.

Hosted by humans Doug (Doug Momary[?]) and Emmy Jo (Emily Peden[?]), this show is probably best known for its costumed puppet characters, Freddie the Frog[?] (played by Yanco Inone[?]), Henrietta Hippo[?] (Larri Thomas[?]) and Charlie the Owl[?] (Sharon Baird[?]).

The show was a recipient of the Federal Communications Commission's Instructional rating and four stars from the Educational Association and National School Board Association[?].

Each issue dealt with a topic like drugs, moving away, courtesy[?], bragging[?] or patience.

Other characters on this show included Frieda the Frog[?], Mr. Dingle[?], a postman, store-keeper and Jack-of-All-Trades[?], and Mrs. Goodbody[?], a nosy neighbour who serves as an advice columnist for "The All New Zoo Gazette[?]." It is of note to mention that The Love Connection's[?] Chuck Woolery[?] played Mr. Dingle, and Emmy Jo and Doug had been married in real life since before the show started to air, and currently run a Las Vegas based entertainment oriented company, Laguna Productions[?].

Creators: Barbara Atlas[?] and Doug Momary[?]

Executive Producer: Stephen W. Jahn[?]
