Zigby is a 3D animated series set on a lush tropical island following the adventures of three young friends- Zigby the Zebra, McMeer the Meerkat and Bertie the Guinea Fowl. A worldwide smash hit in Australia, England, Germany and Canada, the star of the show is Zigby the Zebra who literally ‘trots into trouble.’
A natural leader, Zigby has a lively imagination and is mischievous, but resourceful. In each episode, he comes up with an offbeat idea that he just has to follow through. Zigby’s enthusiasm rubs off on his two best friends – McMeer, an adorably innocent, meerkat, and Bertie, an anxious guinea fowl. The central clearing in the island is where Zigby has his treehouse, Bertie his nest, and McMeer his burrow, and many adventures start from here.
Zigby’s cozy jungle home nestled in a tree and is a favourite place for Zigby and his friends to play. The jungle is a great place for adventures. It is never hostile. However, Zigby and his two best friends, through their antics, create commotion in abundance for everyone on the island. Whatever scrapes he gets into, Zigby always thinks of a clever ways to trot them out of trouble again.
