New Zoo Revue was a half-hour American children's television show that originally aired in syndication from 1972 until 1977. Stations usually broadcast the program in the early or mid-morning to appeal to the same audience of preschoolers who enjoyed Romper Room and CBS's Captain Kangaroo.

Each of the show's 196 episodes used songs and a bright cast of animal characters to impart lessons on patience, procrastination, courtesy, dealing with others, and other topics.

Hosted by real-life couple Doug (Doug Momary) and Emmy Jo (Emily Peden), the show also featured adult-sized puppet characters, led by Freddie the Frog (voiced by Joni Robbins), Henrietta Hippo (voiced by Larri Thomas), and Charlie the Owl (voiced by Bob Holt). Other characters included Frieda the Frog, Mr. Dingle (Chuck Woolery), an elderly postman, storekeeper and jack-of-all-trades, and Mrs. Goodbody (Fran Ryan), a nosy neighbor who serves as an advice columnist for The All New Zoo Gazette.

The series hosted numerous celebrity guest stars during its run, including Henry Mancini, Jim Backus, Jo Anne Worley and Richard Dawson.

New Zoo Revue came to an abrupt end when Goldwyn Studios, where the series was shot, was destroyed by fire. The entire set and all the costumes were lost, except for one Freddy the Frog costume that was being cleaned at the time.
