Storyline

A rookery of penguins with attitude -- leader Skipper, brainy Kowalski, loony Rico and young Private -- in Central Park Zoo embarks on what it sees as a series of strike-force missions until confronting an unwelcome challenge to its dominance from a new zoo resident: Julien, King of the Lemurs, in a sequel to the hit animated movies.

Trivia

A running joke throughout the series is when something (like a bomb) is thrown off camera and an explosion or a crash is heard, followed by a voice yelling "My car!". In the episode The Penguins of Madagascar: The Return of the Revenge of Dr. Blowhole (2011), the shout is in Japanese (with subtitles). See more »

Has the potential to become the next Tom&Jerry
1 May 2009 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

I really think The Penguins and the Lemurs could be remembered in history on the same level with Tom&Jerry. So far, the show shows big promise...

It has all the important ingredients: a never-ending conflict, laughable characters doing the most unlikely things and most important, a real sense of humor.

Looking from this Tom&Jerry perspective, some of the action in the Penguins is similar, especially the "violent" action, but it's so different with different characters and settings.

I love it, and I hope it will keep up like this.
