Another of the new kiddy game shows. It's creators describe it as Indiana Jones meets a game show.
A reader has mentioned a television series called Zeppos on Belgian (Flemish) television
which appeared sometime in the late-1960s. We do not know, however, much about the program yet. We had thought it was about a Flemish boy. All we know about him is that he keeps rabbits and the plot seems to involve a gang of boys. A Belgian reader has since pointed out to us that the actual title was Kapitein Zeppos which was a Flemish television series. The main caracter is the captain himself and not the boy. Kapitein Zeppos was an aristocratic James Bond 007--like personality.
Show about a zoo veterinarian and his three children.
A HBC reader writes, "I have been watching a 2003 program the past few weeks on the Nick channel called "Zooventure" with J.D. Roth as the host. What I noticed is the girl contestents wear very nice looking sand color short pants cut about mid lenth with a
normal type of fit, but the boys usualy wear the same color shorts but they are very baggy and long some even below the knee with the waist down low on the hips. It almost seems like the boys refuse to wear the normal fitting style of shorts even for that tv show. I saw the show for the first time in 2002 and they let the boys wear the baggy style of jean shorts
like you see them wearing to school or on the street and low and behold this one boy's baggy shorts fell down right on that program! They cut that part out real quick, but i did see it happen lucky that the boy was wearing long boxer under pants or he would have been exposed on national TV. I do notice now on that show that all the boys and girls have a full elastic waist band on thier shorts. It boggles my mind as to why the boys still refuse even on that tv show to wear a pair of decent looking and proper fitting short pants. Is it peer pressure? I don't know myself and why would any parent let thier kids wear anything on national tv that would be embarrasing to them and others?"
