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

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 »

Has more potential and humor than any other new nick show
14 March 2010 | by See all my reviews

With the Madagscar movie franchise it seems the penguins became very famous. So let's see how a series made especially for them works.

It's hilarious, it's fun, it's entertaining and it has a lot of potential.

I really hope it stays as long as the Spongebob series.

So original, with lovable characters and a good story in each episode.

It's funny when it wants to be, the cast is simply amazing.

At first a show for them didn't seem like such a good idea, but let me tell you that it was the best idea anyone could have had for TV.

Grown-ups give the show a chance kids and adults are bound to have a good time with the penguins. I really hope it stays that good 'cause you can't find any new show as successful as this, these days.

It's a 10 of 10!!!
