ZOONICORN FAQs

 

What is Zoonicorn?

Zoonicorn is a new television series for preschoolers. The four Zoonicorn characters are a magical mix of unicorns and zebras who live in the Zooniverse, an enchanted dreamland – the dreams of children being the one place parents cannot reach to protect their kids. In each episode, the Zoonicorns guide friends through a whirlwind of exciting adventures.

These are the Zoonicorn characters:

  • Valeo – Athletic, strong, confident and courageous
  • Promi – Wise, caring and a super-planner
  • Aliel – Bubbly, optimistic and ready for anything
  • Ene – Shy, analytical and a tech whiz

 

What happens in the Zoonicorn stories?

Woven throughout all Zoonicorn episodes is a message of optimism and resilience. In every episode, the Zoonicorns find a young animal facing a challenge. The Zoonicorns and the animal work through the problem together. Children see that working with others involves discovering things about yourself, discovering things about others, and coming together to work towards a common goal. Regardless of the goal or any obstacles in their way, it is possible to achieve their dreams.  

 

What are the development/curriculum goals for Zoonicorn?

Zoonicorn was developed with entertainment and an educational focus. The series tackles social-emotional obstacles young children encounter. Our curriculum was developed by Natascha Crandall, Ph.D. who, as a specialist in children’s media, has consulted on many popular educational programs.  The Zoonicorns are not superheroes – they are your typical preschoolers. They do not always listen to others, they struggle with sharing, they get shy in front of others and they make mistakes. However, they are also the ones who are tasked with helping out other animals. The show demonstrates social-emotional learnings in each episode.

Zoonicorn was created by Mark Lubratt, after he secured the rights to the name in 2012.

As Mark has imagined and developed the characters and the stories, he has stayed true to his guiding vision for the series: At the heart of every story is one important truth -- the power to win is always within.
