Alex, Marty, Gloria and Melman are still fighting to get home to their beloved Big Apple. Their journey takes them through Europe where they find the perfect cover: a traveling circus, which they reinvent - Madagascar style.
Spoiled by their upbringing and unaware of what wildlife really is, four animals from the New York Central Zoo escape, unwittingly assisted by four absconding penguins, and find themselves in Madagascar.
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. Written by
Private appears to speak in a middle-class British accent, as opposed to the other penguins(the exception here is Rico, who hardly talks and mainly communicates in grunts)and most of the Zoo animals, who speak with American accents. See more »
I am a nanny for two kids so watch a lot of cartoons. The Penguins of Madagascar are the best! The kids watch and I love the humor! I have tried to get my adult friends to watch but they look at me like I am crazy! You should give it a chance, it is great. Kowalski is always coughing up just the right thing and when the skipper talks to his log like star trek it cracks me up. I esp. love King Julien cause he butchers the English language in a very funny way. Love this show!!!! Not just for kids!!! I have started quoting the funniest lines, like "this calls for harsh mocking...mock, mock, mock" If I weren't so old, I could remember some more of these great lines. Check it out no matter how old you are!
