64 Zoo Lane is a British–French-American children's cartoon created by Belgian-born English author An Vrombaut. The series was produced by Millimages S.A., Zoo Lane Productions, and La Cinquième. The series 1 premiered on Noggin on January 3, 1999 at 8:00 a.m. ET/PT times.


The series follows a 7-year-old girl named Lucy who lives next door to a Zoo at 64 Zoo Lane. Each night, she is told a story by the animals. Characters include Georgina the Giraffe, Nelson the Elephant, Molly the Hippopotamus, Giggles and Tickles the Monkeys, and Boris the Bear. The cartoon emphasizes friendship and responsibility. At the story's end, friendly morals are discussed, then bedtime is declared. Georgina deposits Lucy into bed via the bedroom window (later episodes show Lucy yawning and then sleeping soundly in bed; in the original episodes she would be lulled to sleep by the storytelling itself).

Opportunities for learning: exploring language and vocabulary are enhanced by the use of intonation and expression in the character's voices and the themes of the animals' stories support social and emotional issues, including friendships and helping and caring for others. The creator of the TV series, An Vrombaut, also wrote and illustrated 6 64 Zoo Lane picture books based on stories from the TV series.
