“Children love to be able to express themselves through song and dance, and with ZooMoo Groove, they can also enjoy learning about the world we live in at the same time. We are also excited to introduce our new talent Seth Drury to our audience as our trusted ZooMoo Ranger,” said Catherine Nebauer, General Manager of ZooMoo Networks, Asia Pacific.
“Seth will take ZooMoo fans on fantastical trips to the Oceans, the Mountains, the desert, and other landscapes as he meets our Zoomers and introduce them to their new homes and the animals that live there,” added Catherine.
Concept behind ZooMoo Groove
ZooMoo Groove is themed around exploration and discovery, providing children with an opportunity to visit the eight habitats of the world. The series introduces our fun and quirky Zoomer characters that live on ZooMoo Island. Each character has a distinct personality and ZooMoo Ranger Seth helps them find the habitat they will be most compatible to live in.
Seth Drury is an Australian singer, dancer, and actor. A former Australian Idol contestant, Seth has appeared in various productions in Australia and throughout South East Asia, as well as devised a one-man show at the 2015 Melbourne Fringe Festival to sell out audiences.
To find out more about each Zoomer’s personalities and the habitats that they belong in, tune in to the premiere of ZooMoo Groove on ZooMoo Astro Ch 619, on Wednesday, 5th April at 3.20pm, with repeats at 7.20pm and on Thursdays at 7.20am and 11.20am.

The ZooMoo App
The free ZooMoo App is available for download from popular app stores. It is designed to work alongside the ZooMoo channel to extend and reinforce children's learning about, and love for, the animal world. It does this by providing children with ZooMoo Island - an animal sanctuary where they can interact with and look after up to 150 animals.
The app works as a stand-alone experience, where children can feed and look after animals, pose them for photos, watch video clips and learn each animals name and how common or rare they are. Experimentation and fun is encouraged so that children can learn at their own pace, and in their own way. After the initial app download, no Internet connection is required. The app is also totally free with no in-app purchases or advertising.
In addition, the app is synchronized to the broadcast. When the ZooMoo app is turned on, the channel sends original and complimentary content to the child’s tablet. This content can be opened and explored at any time by the child and parent. The app requires no Wi-Fi or internet connection.
