Hugh Dennis Narrates New Zoo Comedy

The Zoo is a new animated comedy coming to CBBC. 

The new children’s comedy series brings is a documentary style animation. It aims to track the thoughts and day-to-day lives of zoo animals.

It will be a 15-part series voiced by a team of comedy voice artists. Expect to see things like vegetarian lions, beat-boxing giant tortoises and much more.


Dennis presides over the action as he converses with both staff and animals – brought to life using state-of-the-art CGI and facial-tracking technology.

Series producer Aaron Paul promises it will “lift the lid on what is really going on behind the scenes”.

He added: “It’s a kind of Animal Magic for the 21st century. It links the charm of Johnny Morris with the latest technology and modern humour to create a show which has real cross-generational and cross-gender appeal – there really is something for everyone.”

The Zoo airs from Monday August 14 on CBBC.
