Wow, this show is wonderful!
7 July 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Now I will say I like the Madagascar movies, and one of the main reasons are the penguins. When I first heard of The Penguins of Madagascar, I was a little skeptical. Would it have a great concept, but not be funny or entertaining I wondered? After seeing the first episode, I became hooked to this show. It was so much better than my expectations, and I kind of prefer it to the movies. It does have a great concept, but it is not only funny, hilarious more like, but original as well.

The animation is crisp, clean and smooth, with lovely backgrounds and all the characters move convincingly. The music is great, the main theme is truly memorable and the background music is works really well without becoming obtrusive.

Not only that, the stories are very original and exciting, with the odd moral being introduced in a subtle sort of way. And I was so surprised at how much was fitted in in such a short running time without feeling lame, predictable or bloated. The humour also works superbly, not only in the hilarious dialogue but in the clever sight gags, and delivered at breakneck speed.

Then there are the characters, I have always had a love for penguins dating from the countless times I used to watch Pingu as a toddler, and Skipper, Kowalski, Private and Rico are zany characters with unique personalities and priceless actions such as Kowalski talking to his log like Star Trek. Aside from the penguins, my favourite character is King Julien, I just love the way he butchers the English language, and his dance moves and facial expressions. Plus the voice acting is perfect, the voice actors all do a stellar job bringing their characters' personalities across.

Overall, a wonderful show and a huge surprise. 10/10 Bethany Cox
