I was just saying to myself how nice it is to be flying about so many people. You see I have to pick a victim to give the flu to. I don't want to hurt anybody. But I'm a flu germ and it's my job to give people the flu. What should I get for my next victim. Here's a nice one. Blonde hair blue eyes nice looking place to rest. But I couldn't.

Series Description
"ZOOM is a children's show comprised of weekly half-hour episodes which showed what youngsters do and think. Seven ZOOMers hosted each episdoe, and the cast changed over run of series. ZOOM premiered locally as ""Summer-Do"" in 1970, and premiered nationally in January 1972. ZOOMers played games, told jokes, riddles (called Fannee Doolees) and stories and did crafts projects...and invited ideas from their audience. The result was an avalanche of ZOOMmail - in the first season, over 200,000 letters. Additionally, the Ubbi Dubbi language was invented by ZOOM."
