Mumble's son, Erik, is struggling to realize his talents in the Emperor Penguin world. Meanwhile, Mumble and his family and friends discover a new threat their home -- one that will take everyone working together to save them.
An outlaw cat, his childhood egg-friend and a seductive thief kitty set out in search for the eggs of the fabled Golden Goose to clear his name, restore his lost honor and regain the trust of his mother and town.
A scheming raccoon fools a mismatched family of forest creatures into helping him repay a debt of food, by invading the new suburban sprawl that popped up while they were hibernating...and learns a lesson about family himself.
This is the story of a little penguin named Mumble who has a terrible singing voice and later discovers he has no Heartsong. However, Mumble has an astute talent for something that none of the penguins had ever seen before: tap dancing. Though Mumble's mom, Norma Jean, thinks this little habit is cute, his dad, Memphis, says it "just ain't penguin." Besides, they both know that, without a Heartsong, Mumble may never find true love. As fate would have it, his one friend, Gloria, happens to be the best singer around. Mumble and Gloria have a connection from the moment they hatch, but she struggles with his strange "hippity- hoppity" ways. Mumble is just too different--especially for Noah the Elder, the stern leader of Emperor Land, who ultimately casts him out of the community. Away from home for the first time, Mumble meets a posse of decidedly un-Emperor-like penguins--the Adelie Amigos. Led by Ramon, the Adelies instantly embrace Mumble's cool dance moves and invite him to party with... Written by

The dancers for the dance sequences not only had to wear motion capture sensor suits for their movement, but also had to wear special headgear to simulate the penguins' beaks to force them to accommodate the anatomical feature for their characters' dancing. See more »
When Mumble and the Amigos are outrunning the avalanche, Mumble hangs in mid-air for a few seconds, and Ramon grabs onto Mumble from behind before they fall. Looked at closely, Ramon's flipper passes through Mumble's feathers right before they nose-dive down the slope. See more »
Once there was a way to get back homeward.
Are the stars out tonight?
Once there was a way to get back home.
I only have eyes for you.
Sleep, pretty darling, do not cry.
And I will sing a lullaby.
With a song in my heart.
So tell me / Tell me something good / Yeah, yeah, yeah / Tell me that you love me. / Tell me, baby. / Tell me something good.

Hilarious and Realistically Haunting at the Same Time
This is the kind of movie that conceals deeper depths and vividly exhilarating emotion overall.
First interpretation: "Ok, it's a movie about a penguin that dances and has trouble finding a mate. How profound can this movie be?" Then the movie revealed themes I never thought they would accomplish such as Religious fanaticism and Human's destruction of the environment.
It reminded me of 6th Sense because it was so twisted yet taught a very important moral lesson.
Robin Williams is the highlight of the movie, his 2 characters are both well portrayed and well voiced.
Highly recommended. It made me want to go out and save the penguins.
