12.00PM SUNDAY NOVEMBER 11 ON TEN
Alex and Zoe are two kids who find themselves in an extraordinary situation. After stumbling across a magical portal hidden in the town library they’re led to a parallel dimension, a sophisticated world called ANIMALIA. It’s a magical place dominated by talking animals, inhabited by Zebras in zeppelins, hogs on bikes, media mice delivering news bulletins on blue butterflies’ wings, dragons and unicorns; a drum playing gorilla, prima donna alligator, scheming tiger and one very gallant iguana.
In the Metro Library, human kids ALEX and ZOE enter a strange portal that carries them to the talking-animal world of ANIMALIA, where they are mistaken for invading monsters by the general population. In this episode, we meet ANIMALIA’s ruler, LIVINGSTONE, who befriends the kids and asks for their help in repairing the CORE, the magic orb that is at the center of ANIMALIA’s well-being. Alex and Zoe are taken under the wing of gentle but strong G’BUBU Gorilla and his best pal, the boastful IGGY D’IGUANA.
We also meet the librarian REENIE, the Elephants, the Zebras, the Hogs, the Media Mice, and the series’ two significant trouble-makers: ALLEGRA and TYRANNICUS, who take an immediate dislike to the human arrivals.
