Overview[edit]

Setting[edit]

The series is set in a run-down, dilapidated zoo in England known as the "Zooniverse". Howard Moon and Vince Noir work there as zoo-keepers under manager Bob Fossil and owner Dixon Bainbridge. Naboo the Enigma also works there as the resident shaman.[1] Howard and Vince often leave the Zooniverse for various adventures throughout the series, visiting locations such as Limbo, Monkey Hell, and the Arctic tundra.[2][3][4]

Production[edit]

The BBC commissioned the series in May 2003.[5] Rehearsals took place throughout 2003, and filming took place in Studio 11 of Three Mills Studios in London, England from January 2004, directed by Paul King. Certain scenes from the pilot were reused in the episode "Tundra". The pilot was directed by Steve Bendelack.[6]
