When the penguins help to clean the tram, they accidentally press a wrong button and the tram is out of control!

Ziggy and the Zoo Tram is a 3D animated series for upper pre-schoolers (4-7 years). It’s about a group of animals who live in a small zoo and who have a very special secret: they go home at night! Every afternoon when the zoo closes, Ziggy the Australian freshwater crocodile and his friends Miss Emily the elephant, Lionel the lion, and the others, put on their clothes, unlock the doors of their enclosures, and get on the tram. The tram carries them out of the zoo, across land and sea, to their village, nestled in a secluded crater on a remote island. Here they return to their own houses – each designed to reflect the personality of its owner – and live in freedom. The following morning, they gather at the tram station, greet each other, and board the tram. Everyone squeezes in to make room, and they settle down for the trip to the zoo. But on every trip – and sometimes before they even leave the crater – something unexpected happens to turn the journey into a hilarious adventure…
