Availability information for this program

In THE ZULA PATROL, a group of animated aliens travel the galaxies to learn new and exciting things about science and space exploration. The series, targeted to pre-kindergarteners through third-graders, delivers both astronomy-based science education (orbits, eclipses, moon phases, asteroids, comets, gravity), as well as character- building lessons. The Zula Patrol, stationed in the far reaches of outer space on the bright orange planet Zula. The group, always on the lookout for the villain Dark Truder & his toupee-wearing sidekick Traxie, includes: Bula, the fearless captain and intrepid explorer; his co-pilot Zeeter, a wild space jockey in her own right; Multo, an intergalactic absent-minded professor; Gorga, a loyal puppy-sized pet with amazing tranformative abilities, and Wizzy & Wigg, a cosmic pair of flying dictionaries. THE ZULA PATROL provides a dynamic, focused and fun learning experience for children, while encouraging them to think innovatively and approach problems evenhandedly.

  • Show of Force/Adventures In Pet Sitting

    SHOW OF FORCE: The ZPers hold a race to see who can use clever variations of force to win. Hoping to buck astronomical villainous odds, Dark Truder also enters the race, intent on winning it on behalf of villains everywhere -- for as we've all seen, no bad guy ever wins a race - ever. Dark Truder, to his amazement, does win -- only to learn that the ZPers were more interested in having fun and learning about force, rather than achieving victory. Dark Truder is so angry he forfeits the race to our heroes -- setting a new record low for villains everywhere. ADVENTURES IN PET SITTING: While pet-sitting the Zlorgs' pet blob, Gloopy, the Zula Patrollers discover that Dark Truder is plotting to steal their entire Headquarters building and everything in it! With some help from Gloopy -- and two simple machines, the wheel-and-axle and the screw -- they manage to overcome the baddie and save their building. But first, Gorga must learn to deal with an attack of jealousy.

But when their rocket-powered scooter breaks down, and the other ZPers are too busy to give them a ride, the industrious twins try to find a new way to go to space. Their failed attempts frustrate them, but amuse their not-so-friendly friend, Larvi. However it's the imperfect Larvi who inadvertently gives them the pieces needed to build a rocket - the only true way to get to space. CASTAWAY ASTEROID: After Gorga snorts up Wizzy's and Wigg's toy box full of toys, Multo proposes that they make a solar sail kite to play with instead, and teaches them all about solar sails. Then a Zula Patrol fan (Dark Truder in disguise) calls to compliment the ZP on their new billboard on a distant asteroid. Our heroes get suspicious -- the Zula Patrol doesn't advertise. When they fly up to the asteroid to investigate, they discover it's a trap! Pirate Truder and his robot crew steal their ship, and the Zula Patrollers are left stranded on the asteroid. But Wizzy and Wigg use their new knowledge of solar sails to come up with a solution -- a "lifeboat" using the shiny foil of the billboard as a solar sail.
