THE ZULA PATROL: ANIMAL ADVENTURES IN SPACE on DVD
THE ZULA PATROL: ANIMAL ADVENTURES IN SPACE! will be available on June 2 from Well Go USA. The new feature-length DVD is based on the Parents Choice award-winning TV series, THE ZULA PATROL, which airs Saturday mornings on NBC as part of the qubo programming block and weekdays and weekends on public television stations.
THE ZULA PATROL: ANIMAL ADVENTURES IN SPACE! follows the intrepid team from Zula in humor-filled stories that begin with a challenge, and end with a resolution, as they explore how insects, reptiles, mammals, plants and rocks form and interact with each other. In "Larvae or Leave Me" (the first episode), Skip the grasshopper can't find his friend Wriggly the caterpillar -- until he discovers, with help from The Zula Patrol, that Wriggly has transformed into a beautiful butterfly!
Four additional stories on the DVD are: "Egg Hunt," "There Goes the Neighborhood," "Choosing Sides" and "Camp Worm." No job is too big for The Zula Patrol, as they search for stolen frog eggs, help restore life to a canyon ecosystem, solve the mystery of the missing honey, and tunnel through dirt with their worm comrades to help the trees grow -- and end up thwarting a threatened "alien invasion" from another planet.
