The Producer of 'The Mighty Boosh' and Senior Producer for Babycow has confirmed that the first episode in the 8 part series will be broadcast on BBC3 at 9pm on Tuesday 4th May 2004. It will then transfer to BBC2 but probably not until the Autumn. This date is subject to change and probably will change once or twice before broadcast. Check back near the end of April for a more definite date.
The regular cast is
Bob Fossil (Rich Fulcher) who has become the Zoo Manager
Michael Fielding - back as Naboo in a speaking part.
The owner is now Dixon Bainbridge played by Matt Berry (Richard Ayoade played the part in the pilot).
Johnny Two Hats is played by Dan Clark (Electric Eel/The Estate Agents/Mad About Alice).
Simon Farnaby plays publisher, Hamilton Cork in the 'Charlie'episode, and also Pie Faced Man in 'Electro'.
An important figure in the show is Dave Brown (AutoBoosh/Boosh Radio). He plays Joey Moose in some of the episodes but also played a role in choreographing some of the dance scenes. He very memorably plays Black Frost in the revamped ‘Tundra’.
Mrs Gideon (Victoria Wicks - Sally Smedley from 'Drop the Dead Donkey') is Head of Reptiles and the focus of Howard's affection at the zoo.
The pilot episode, ‘Tundra’, has been partly re-shot and re-edited in order to accommodate the change of cast.
On top of that, there will be talking gorillas, chimps, foxes, dancing Mod wolves, a panda which has a complicated love life, a bear who is taken to an Animal Offenders Institute and a boxing kangaroo.
