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.

Great show!
1 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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!
