No, they aren’t animated characters. They are human beings who were made to wear body suits. To be specific, they are women theater artists from Mumbai Cape Town. The design of the characters is such that one gets fooled into thinking it is animation.

This was achieved using special material wrinkle free cloth which made the body suites look smooth (like in animation) and the ads were shot at slower than normal frame rate so that the movements look swift but funny. You can also notice that the expressions on the face are static and are changed only between the (shot) cuts.

These Zoozoo characters have been created by O&M for Vodafone to convey different value added services offered by the mobile phone company including phone Backup, cricket alerts, etc. Each Zoozoo character has a unique set of characteristics and traits allotted to it.
