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.

Episodes:

  • Chili Cook-Off/Treasure in the Clouds

    CHILI COOK-OFF: Multo's cooking up a pot of "Galactic Goo" for lunch. But when Bula unwittingly puts Multo's Goo in the freezer, The Zula Patrol finds themselves face to face with a "whirlgoo" of gigantic proportions. TREASURE IN THE CLOUDS: After hearing Multo tell a story about a Golden Cloud, Wizzy and Wigg set out to find it to give to Multo as a surprise present. Dark Truder overhears them and, unaware it's just a story, plots to find the Golden Cloud himself so he will be rich. Our heroes hike up Mount Zula, meeting many types of clouds along the way. When they reach the top, they actually see a golden cloud that Truder attempts to grab, but it turns out to be the Zula Space Patrol ship hidden in a cloud of astro-smoke. Dark Truder is foiled by his own greed, but Wizzy and Wigg discover that sometimes the key to happiness is making others happy.

  • Star Crossed/Night of the Fweebs

    STAR CROSSED: After luring the Zula Patrol into deep space, Dark Truder steals all the constellations in the sky. He corrals them in a caravan of cages so the ZPers won't be able to "steer by the stars" and chart a course home. The quarrelling, star-crossed constellations have to learn to work together before the Zula Patrol can set them free - and make Truder see stars. NIGHT OF THE FWEEBS: It's the Night of the Fweeebs and the Zula Patrol gets a front row seat as these furry creatures migrate to the North Pole using Polaris, the North Star, as a guide. But chaos ensues when the Zula Patrol discover the North Star is missing, causing the Fweeebs stumble around in confusion, utterly lost! Our heroes must find and return Polaris to its rightful spot in the night sky or the Fweeebs are doomed!

  • Mutual Distraction/What Goes Up Must Come Down

    MUTUAL DISTRACTION: Dark Truder hides a magnet in a cloud to magnetize the Zula Patrol, rendering them ineffective, but it's Wizzy and Wigg who end up magnetized. The Zula Patrollers learn all about magnetism as they try to save the siblings - and themselves, when their ship becomes a giant refrigerator magnet. WHAT GOES UP MUST COME DOWN: Explorers from the planet Polkadottia make an emergency landing on Zula and send cryptic visual messages for help to the Zula Patrol. Once our ZPers are able to decipher these messages and find the stranded Polkadottians, they are also able to figure out their problem: The visitors come from a smaller and less massive world than Zula, so they aren't used to the stronger gravitational pull and mass of the ZPers' planet. Our heroes tow the Polkadottians to Mercury - a planet that equals Polkadottia in mass and gravity. There, they help the visitors fix their ship so they can return home.

THE MILKY WAY GALAXY GAMES: The Zula Patrol is entrusted with a mission to deliver the torch to the Milky Way Galaxy Games in time for the opening ceremony. They overcome various obstacles including getting lost, a Black Hole, and most importantly, Zeeter's doubt for Multo's silly inventions, which proves in the end to be not so silly after all.

    MATTER, MATTER EVERYWHERE: Inside a hollow meteorite, the ZPers find the treasure map of Long John Jupiter, notorious rhyming Space Pirate. Following the clues, they learn all about matter, and find a surprising treasure. FAMILY FEUD: Earth's water has disappeared! Part one of the molecular mystery is soon solved when Multo discovers that all of Earth's water molecules have separated into their individual atoms of Hydrogen and Oxygen. When Bula and Zeeter shrink to atom-size they find the reason for the separation is a family feud. It's up to the Zula Patrol to get the feuding atoms together as molecules -- and get Earth back together -- before it's too late.

  • Round and Round We Go/The Go'er-Slower Motion

    ROUND AND ROUND WE GO: Dark Truder comes up with a scheme to trap the Zula Patrol on a huge inflatable planet he has placed in orbit around the Sun. It is up to Zeeter, who is off taking part in an orbital space race around the planets of our Solar System, to come to their rescue. THE GO'ER-SLOWER MOTION: Dark Truder builds a Go'er-Slower Motion Machine, which puts The Zula Patrol in super slow motion. With The ZPers too slow to stop him, Truder easily turns the entire galaxy into one huge tribute to himself. However The ZPers are slow, but not out. When they discover that the Go'er-Slower Motion Machine is on Earth, they use their knowledge of the planets' revolution and rotation to meet up with the fast moving (to them) Earth. Then Multo reverses the machine so The Zula Patrol can move at super fast speed to undo the changes Truder made to the galaxy. But they're not sure anything can undo the memory of Truder's tacky Chuckle-World.

  • 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.
