The Adventures of Zack and Molly is a 3-part short video series about the adventures of an unlikely duo. A learning guide for teachers to accompany the film is available for download at ecogig.org/zackandmolly.
Zack is more interested in the small world of his smartphone than the larger world around him. His online request for a roommate is answered by Molly, a tech-savvy dumbo octopus on a mission to tell the world about the importance of the deep ocean. Molly wants to use Zack’s apartment for her global communications headquarters, but Zack is skeptical. To win Zack over, Molly takes him to her deep ocean home in the Gulf of Mexico to see its unique features and diverse marine life, and to help him understand how human activities threaten its health.
The Adventures of Zack and Molly series was created by award-winning cartoonist and filmmaker Jim Toomey, who created the popular comic strip Sherman’s Lagoon. The video series was produced in partnership with ECOGIG. Learn more at ecogig.org!
