The Definitive Ranking Of "Zoom" Cast Member Introductions

Come on and zoom, come on and zoom, come on and zoom, zoom, zoom-a ZOOM!

Posted on

Note: This ranking does not include the original Zoom seasons from the 1970s. It also leaves out Seasons 6 and 7 of the reboot, which used a different introduction style than the first five seasons.

26. Alisa, Season 1

PBS

Not really sure what this dance move is called, but I'm OK with it. The weird thing at the end where she presents her arms to the viewer is eccentric, in a good way. But again: WE NEED MORE FROM YOU, ALISA.

21. Kaleigh, Season 4

PBS

The close up is a little weird, bringing back memories of Zoe's uncontrollable head-shaking from Season 2. But then we pan out and see the top hat and cane, and this intro immediately improves by at least 75%.

12. Caroline, Season 4

PBS

Definitely Caroline's best showing. It seems like someone pushed the stuffed animals from behind, so her surprise actually comes across as genuine for once. WAY TO (kind of) REDEEM YOURSELF!

6. Kenny, Season 3

PBS

Clearly a man of many talents. It's impressive that Kenny is able to keep his concentration while focusing not only on introducing himself, but on making sure those balls don't fall.

Side note: Can we please talk about how Kenny and Caroline were SUCH an item back then? I ship them to this day.

4. Estuardo, Season 4

PBS

Although he was a major disappointment in Season 5, Estuardo provided one of the highlights of the Season 4 introduction sequence. His moves are smooth as butter and he's totally rocking it.

2. Kenny, Season 2

PBS

The classic "I'm going down an escalator" gambit. Kenny is obviously well versed in the history of comedic introductions, and TOTALLY commits with the facial expression at the end. Bravo.

1. Lynese, Season 1

PBS

Perfect in its simplicity. The shoulder-shake is one for the ages. Plus, Lynese capped off Season 1's intros, leaving us with the indelible "And I'm Lynese!" that would cast its spell over every future Zoomer.

TRULY GLORIOUS. LYNESE FOREVER.
