(Kids 6-10, 104×12 min.) Yann, an intrepid 15-year-old, and his little 7-year-old sister, Marina, live with their Uncle Patrick, an oceanographer, on the paradise island of Maotou, in the Pacific Ocean. Yann’s best friend is Zoom, a remarkably intelligent white dolphin. Zoom takes Yann and his friends on exciting adventures, set in the fascinating, fragile and danger-filled underwater world, as well as on dry land. Comedy and humor are central to the series, expressed through a host of colorful characters, including Raoul, Marina’s pet koala; John-Sebastian, the chatterbox mynah bird; Loaf, the sloth; and other inhabitants of Maotou Island.
