Don Bluth so hated the final results of the movie after production was wrapped up that he demanded to be uncredited as the director. See more »
Before the cast begins singing "Good Ship Misery", the dubbing for the coupled penguins in the cage is swapped during the line "Welcome Hubie! Although Welcome probably isn't the appropriate word." See more »
Everybody knows that penguins can't fly!
You're wrong! You are dead wrong! Our ancestors flew! They gave us wings when we can't fly?! I mean, I mean whose idea of a cruel joke is this?

The opening credit/overture sequence is shown with the animated penguin characters playing and cavorting on the sheet music for the songs they're singing. See more »
I saw this animation as I collect penguins and there were some cute pictures with a _little_ factual information in the story, but the dialog and songs did not live up to the high standard of classic Disney films. The little plot seemed too simplistic and obviously going to end happily-ever-after. There was none of the suspense caused by a good score and life-or-death situations with last minute saves which characterize good fairytales.
Overall: 5/10 - passes the time, just
