Children's TV show taped between 1972 and 1975, based around the adventures of Doug (Doug Momary), Emmy Jo (Emily Peden), and their three animal friends: Henrietta Hippo, Charlie the Owl, and Freddie the Frog. The show's goal was to teach children about the importance of love, manners, and friendship, to name a few topics. Chuck Woolery of Love Connection fame played a recurring character by the name of Mr. Dingle.

Still shown in syndication in some parts of the U.S., NZR paved way for a new generation of plush animal creatures on TV, including Barney.
