PERFORMER Richard Coombs
DEBUT 1989

The Zookeeper appears in the Ghost of Faffner Hall episode "The Voice Is an Instrument," as the latest owner of Faffner Hall. Farkas sells the Hall to the Zookeeper, so he can turn it into a zoo.

Dressed in a pith helmet and wearing muttonchop whiskers, the zookeeper resembles the sterotypical British big game hunter, and he pursues the Faffner Hall residents with a net. He becomes smitten with Fughetta Faffner, however, and decides that she's the love of his life (even though she's dead).

He returns the Hall to Farkas for a chance to hear Fughetta sing, and joins her for a duet. He decides to give up zookeeping for a singing career.
