Howard Moon and Vince Noir are slightly hapless zoo keepers at the Zoo-Niverse, a place strangely light on animals owned by dodgy business magnate Dixon Bainbridge and managed by a psychologically damaged American named Bob Fossil.

Six magical adventures from award-winning comedians Julian Barratt and Noel Fielding.

Zookeepers Howard Moon and Vince Noir try to catch an animal thief at Bob Fossil's Zoo - with the help of a deer costume.

Written by and starring Noel Fielding and Julian Barratt, The Boosh is a surreal adventure based on their Perrier Award-winning comedy show, featuring Howard and Vince's battles with zoo manager Bob Fossil (Rich Fulcher).

Vince is a regular 'Mowgli in flares' due to his affinity with animals and adoration for all things Seventies, whereas Howard likes to think he's more the brains of the duo, destined for better things.

After BBC radio gave them their big break with this series, they transferred to BBC TV where The Mighty Boosh ran for three series.

Produced by Danny Wallace. First broadcast in October 2001.
