About Suzy’s Zoo
Suzy’s Zoo was established in 1968 by award-winning San Diego artist, Suzy Spafford. Deriving from Suzy’s own childhood memories, it evokes the spirit of a time when kids were free to explore their surroundings and have adventures of their own making.

The stories begin when Suzy Ducken and her next-door neighbor Jack Quacker decide to build a tree fort in the big old tree between their houses. Their nearby neighbor Corky Turtle is the ballast of the group with his scientific and practical ways of making things work. Suzy’s best-friend, the girly and opinionated Emily Marmot, is the comedy relief, with the redeeming quality of ALWAYS bringing the refreshments for their adventures. Jack, the leader of the group, has a burning desire to be able to fly all over Duckport and the entire Beak Isles. Ever-impatient, he is always trying out a device to get him airborne. Suzy is the straight-man in the group, with her even temperament and diplomatic ways. But she has her moments of frustration, too—especially about Jack. Tagging along is the pesky but lovable Ollie Marmot, Emily’s twin. Ollie competes with Jack for speed and bravado. Their adventures are about invention, involvement, cooperation, sharing, and exploration—and involve junkyards, tools, dirt, attics filled with old stuff, school, family, chores, the other interesting characters in the town of Duckport, and a sense of belonging to a widely mixed community of animal folk.

There is another character group in Duckport—the little toddler duck Witzy and his stuffed animal friendsBoof, Patches, Lulla and Ellie Funt. Witzy is Jack Quacker’s young cousin. Witzy’s adventures are mostly limited to his backyard where he is watched over by his mostly-unnoticed momma. And there is a third character set-Wags and Whiskers, all about dogs and cats, and centers around a shaggy sheepdog Kirby Harrington and his nemesis Natasha, the way-too-cool black and white kitty. Each character set featureswell-drawn illustrations of personable (mostly!) characters to create a familiar-seeming and friendly universe.

There are many superb licensing partners that sell Suzy’s Zoo images on such products as infant clothing, greeting cards, bedding, books, tableware and games. These products can be found in the mass market as well as in specialty stores.
