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:

  • Rock and Patrol/Support Your Neighborhood Volcano

    When famous rock group The Bowlin' Stones have a falling out and refuse to play at a big benefit concert, Bula and Zeeter must find them and convince them to change their minds. Meanwhile, to fill in, Multo must overcome his stage-fright to be the front man of the Zula Patrol's own rock band. It's the Zula Patrol to the rescue when Voop's volcanic cousin Fielding holds back from erupting. Fielding's in denial about his condition, but if he builds up too much pressure, the results could be disastrous for the residents of Volcano Valley. Our heroes find out that Fielding is afraid to let his 'inner volcano' shine through because his neighbors fear and mistrust volcanoes, and they might dislike him even more. The ZPers help Fielding re-discover how great it is to be a volcano.

  • Down Under/Singin' in the Rain Forest

    The Zula Patrol comes to the aid of Zulean insects whose entire neighborhood (a lush green field with rich topsoil) has been bulldozed away by Bruce and Sheila Mole, who are building an above-ground winter home to get away from those chilly months "down under" the ground. Wizzy and Wigg are taking care of Iris' orchid, but when it wilts, they decide to replace it - by going to where most orchids come from: Earth's Amazon rain forest. As they try to find the orchid, they learn all about the incredible rain forest - and make friends with its fascinating animal inhabitants, some of whom are endangered.

  • The Sound of Multo/Eyes in the Skies

    The Zula Patrol comes to the rescue when Deliria leads a swarm of Zulean Music-Munchers into the city to devour Zuleans' musical instruments. Her plan: to force Zuleans to buy only her brand of instrument. After years of hard work, Bula, Zeeter and Multo have finished building satellites. Taking a well-deserved break, they enjoy an afternoon in the wilderness. Dark Truder takes advantage of their absence to steal all of Zula's satellites so he can become "Rula of Zula". Without Zula's satellites, Zula becomes helpless, and our heroes become lost in the wilderness.

  • Birds of a Feather/Bula's Heros: The Great Camouflage Caper

    When their space craft freezes up, the Zula Patrol makes an emergency landing in the Zula Forest near a bird's nest - with an abandoned egg! After the baby bird hatches, the ZPers decide to track down its mother, who Deliria bird-napped in order to design a flying machine for Cloid. Along the way, the Zula Patrol learns about animal adaptation and attempt to teach the little bird how to fly; only they have no luck. But when the time is right, the bird does fly, rescuing its mother and helping the Zula Patrol snare Deliria and Cloid. In his quest for control of Zula, Dark Truder shrinks Bula, Zeeter and Multo, and then puts them in a terrarium where a beetle named Bruto will keep them from escaping. Deep inside the terrarium, the ZPers meet a group of very polite insects with camouflage abilities. Bug-phobic Bula comes to like the insects and get over his phobia. The insects use their camouflage abilities to help get the ZPers past Bruto, out of the terrarium and defeat Truder.

  • Moon Struck/Me, Myself and Io

    The Zula Patrol is called into action to rescue Venus from her erratic behavior in her quest to acquire a moon of her own. It's time again for Jupiterfest, the yearly celebration to honor the Solar System's Big Guy, and this year all of Jupiter's moons will take part in a talent show to cap off the day. All except Io, that is, the most volcanically active moon in the Solar System. Not only doesn't she think she's talented, but she also is embarrassed about her incessant eruptions. The Zula Patrol steps in to give Io confidence (and an act) for the talent show. Meanwhile, Dark Truder, posing as a judge for the competition, plans to take advantage of the talent show... for a chance to steal the contest's grand prize.

  • Blast to Earth's Past/The Great Climb

    Deliria thinks she's found a way to own the entire Earth - by taking a time machine back to when there were no people on the planet, and being the first to claim it. Zeeter accidentally gets whisked along on the time trip, which takes them back to 250 million years ago when Earth's continents were combined as one. Going forward in time to the present, Deliria's clunky time machine continually breaks down. In between encounters with dinosaurs and an Ice Age, Zeeter gets to observe how today's continents were formed because of Plate Tectonics. Zeeter is excited about climbing in The Great Climb, an annual mountain climbing event in her home town, Zazu Falls. It's a two-person team event and Bula's to be her partner. But when Bula is injured, Multo volunteers to be her partner. Zeeter is skeptical of Multo's climbing abilities; however, Multo's knowledge of mountains is what helps them climb close to the top. Unfortunately, the mountain, who prefers to be called the "Grand Zeeterondack," prevents the two from reaching its summit. After asking some questions, Zeeter and Multo learn that the mountain is worried that once someone reaches the top, no one will climb it any more. In the end, the two ZPers must convince the mountain that it is like an old friend and that the climbers will never abandon it. Once they do this, the mountain allows them to climb the rest of the way to the top.

The creatures create chaos aboard the ship, including trying to eat it!
