In the episode, Leslie accidentally takes a stand in favor of same-sex marriage when she holds a marriage for two male penguins during a publicity stunt for the zoo. The episode was written by Norm Hiscock and directed by Paul Feig. The writing staff sought to address more topical issues during the second season, and the gay marriage plot was inspired by the real-life pairing of Harry and Pepper, a pair of romantically involved male penguins at the San Francisco Zoo. Although Hiscock said he was focused more strongly on comedy than making a political or social statement, both the script and the show's protagonist ultimately takes a position in favor of same-sex marriage.

According to Nielsen Media Research, "Pawnee Zoo" was watched by 5 million households.
