New Zoo Revue

New Zoo Revue was a children's television show that ran from 1972-1977.

The musical comedy format show conveyed the concepts of cooperation and guidance for living in contemporary society. Each episode dealt with a topic like drugs, moving away, courtesy, bragging or patience.

Though hosted by humans Doug and Emmy Jo, the show featured its costumed adult-sized puppet characters, primarily Freddie the Frog, Henrietta Hippo, and Charlie the Owl.
Other characters included Frieda the Frog, Mr. Dingle, an elderly postman, store-keeper and Jack-of-All-Trades, and Mrs. Goodbody, a nosy neighbor who served as an advice columnist for "The All New Zoo Gazette."
