Movie Reviews

Coming Right at You
Gord Wilson | Bellingham, WA USA | 03/01/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Finally all of season one is out on DVD. New Zoo Revue is an underrated kids' show where "three delightful animals" have fun at what they do. Those being Freddy Frog, Charlie Owl and Henrietta Hippo. The two humans, Doug and Emmy Jo, manage to be on hand without taking over. Yes it's the "E" word-- educational, and even has the "V" word-- values, but its not one of those plodding braindead lesson-heavy thinly disguised school shows that prodded Joe Barbera to quip that he was in favor of cartoons that were "mindlessly funny not mindlessly preachy." Kids love this show, and for good reason. Now that season one is out, they can let adults in on the fun."

"This was and is a GREAT SHOW, shows like BARNEY were just horrible and painful to watch but this is a show you can sit down and just enjoy it for what it is (a great childrens show). This show is just great for kids of all ages. They dont make quality childrens programming like this anymore.Again you have to enjoy the show for what it is and not be over critical of the time period in which it was done."
Good for preschoolers

"I liked this show as a preschooler in the 70's (I think I was 3 or so when I watched it). My 4 yr. old thoroughly enjoyed the dvd when we rented it from the library recently. BUT- I must admit as an adult it can get a bit taxing after watching the same 10 episodes repeatedly- if you are buying this set, with 59 episodes, I doubt you'll run into that issue right away!

Some of the 'ballads' of Emmy Jo and Doug are a bit slow and dull, but overall it is a fun heartwarming show that I think many 2-5 yr olds would enjoy. (It is also amusing to see the clothing and other 70's laden-decor, it's like a trip back in time if you grew up in this era.)"
Young children will like this. Better'n Barney
John Treble | Houston, TX USA | 04/10/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Unlike most of the other reviewers of this product, I actually KNEW Doug Momary (one of the show's stars.) Back when I was a teenager growing up in Whittier California, Doug was the City Parks and Recreation department drama director. I was in three of his summer plays and got to know him well. Does this bias my opinion of the New Zoo Review? Maybe, but since I know Doug and his background and committment to children, I know how the New Zoo Review works with children. Doug's talent extended from acting, directing, writing and music/lyrics. The New Zoo Review is Doug's crowning achievment. Children still enjoy this 'values based' program to this day."
