The series is set on the fictitious Junglie Island, an island somewhere near Africa. Each episode follows the adventures of several anthropomorphised animals called the Junglies, all of whom are portrayed as young children.
A total of 13 episodes were made, and aired between 1991 and 1993 exclusively in the United Kingdom, some of which were released straight-to-video. It is possible that more episodes were planned but only 13 were filmed. However, the series has never been properly released on DVD (as of yet, anyway), although one episode was featured on the VHS and DVD versions of A Day Full of Animals and Songs. However, it is hoped that a DVD called Junglies: The Complete Series could be released in 2014 under the rights of Abbey Home Media.
It is now being featured in the US on the BabyFirstTV channel.
