“C’mon and Zoom, Zoom, Zoom-a, Zoom!”
Who remembers PBS’ 1999 remake Zoom?
After going on a 25-year hiatus from its original 1970s airing, PBS brought back the educational children’s series Zoom in 1999. Unfortunately, after six years on air, PBS hung up the children’s show due to its drowning ratings (and better cartoons).
Since it’s #ThrowbackThursday, we decided to take a look back at all the reasons why we loved Zoom back in ’99 and the 2000s (word to Cash Money Records). From the dope ass intro song to the complicated secret language, “Ubbi Dubbi,” Zoom used to be the sh*t (at least for kids ages 6-12).
Get ready to reminisce about the “good ‘ol days” and zoom down memory lane below.
