From the far reaches of outer space, from the bright orange planet Zula, comes the Zula Patrol! Based on the #1-rated NBC Saturday Morning TV series “The Zula Patrol,” The Zula Patrol: Under the Weather is one of the top-performing digital dome shows of its genre. Currently in distribution to more than 60 theaters since its launch at Chicago’s Adler Planetarium, Under the Weather is designed for children ages 4-9 and their families. Like the TV series (also airing on qubo, Telemundo, ION and PBS nationwide), it supports many national and state science education standards.
The story: the stalwart heroes of the Zula Patrol are on an expedition collecting samples of weather for scientist Multo's research -- using their loyal pet Gorga's ability to collect and bottle all kinds of weather. But when the Zula gang inadvertently hurts Gorga's feelings, he decides to leave Zula and find another planet to live on. Interplanetary villain Dark Truder then tricks Gorga into stealing the weather from other planets - part of his latest nefarious scheme to rule the Universe. The ZPers find out and go after him - in the process learning all about weather, both terrestrial and interplanetary.
