This show is an observational documentary about real life at Paignton Zoo - with a comedy spin.

If you ever wanted to find out what makes our animal friends tick, thanks to the power of animation they can now tell us. Gorillas, penguins and giraffes will all take lead roles, and we find out that it's often the animals that have the last laugh over the staff.

Paignton Zoo's animal characters will be given human voices and computer-generated moving mouths.
