Zazoo U was a television series that ran on Fox Kids from September 8th, 1990, to January 19th, 1991.[1][2] The show was created by children's author Shane DeRolf and had a total of 13 half-hour episodes.[3]


Zazoo U involves a higher learning institution called Zazoo U where all the people going there are animals, and the extraordinary is ordinary.[4]


Zazoo U received three DVD releases in the UK containing the first six episodes. The rest of the episodes have never been released to home video and remain lost (two of them were also reportedly unaired in the US, which are marked with *) as the show was taken off the air in 1991, never to be seen again in the US afterward.

The series has been dubbed into Danish, French, German, Norwegian, Latin Spanish, European Spanish, Swedish and Turkish. Of the foreign dubs, only the French dub of "One Single Seed" has been found, but the first three minutes are missing.

The show was acquired by Disney in 2001, as part of the Fox Family Worldwide library. It is currently unknown if it will be released on Disney+.[5][6][7]
