The series follows a standard plot, though with substantial differences from episode to episode.
At the beginning of each episode we meet an inhabitant of Zoolandia as he or she goes about their everyday life, doing something that characterizes each one. But something goes wrong.
For example, mommy Pig calls her children for lunch, but little Timmy won’t eat. What’s wrong with him?
Or, Arturo the kangaroo is about to dispute the championship finals of the long jump when, while training, he suffers a cramp in his leg.
In each case the inhabitants of Zoolandia know there is only one thing to do: go to Croco Doc’s office, or call Croco Doc if they’re not able to go personally.
Croco Doc visits the patient and listens to the symptoms. After consulting with his assistant Crat the hippopotamus, he furnishes his diagnosis and explains how to cure the problem that afflicts the patient, as would a “real” doctor.
At the end of an episode the patient is cured and, thanks to Croco Doc, can enjoy his or her fully restored health: the complications have been settled and it’s now time to return to everyday life!
