Trivia

Series trademark: Twilight Zone. Most if not all entries in the Madagascar/Penguins series contain an homage to Rod Serling's original The Twilight Zone (1959). In this one, Dave says "The monsters are due in Manhattan," a variation of the title of The Twilight Zone: The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street (1960). Also, the "you maniacs" speech from Planet of the Apes (1968), a movie partly written by Serling, is paraphrased by characters in both this movie and the original Madagascar (2005). See more »

Quotes

Skipper: [after waking up from being tranquilized] What did North Wind do to us?
Private: [Turns around and shows the dart stuck in his back] They gave us badges!
Skipper: [Snatches the dart from his own shoulder] No, not badges... Tranquilizer darts!
[Looks around and realizes they're in a plane]
Skipper: Classified. That low-down, dirty dog is trying to kick us off the mission!

It's amazing!
22 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

This is masterpiece. Being 20 years old guy, i still like to watching this cartoon. Sometimes my 40 y\o father when have a time watch this. It's really funny cartoon where are different stories, like about love, about friendship, about action, about moral values! Each character full of their life way!

Skipper-Team leader. Always keeps team in healthy shape. Always says what to do and how to do. He use his "King slap" to calm down members of team. It's really funny and by this he emphasizes his leadership. And it is ridiculous in my opinion, is when he says the name of the operation. "Okay guys, we start operation "******" Let's go!" (c) Skipper. Ahahahah :D

Kowalski-Brain of team. He always have plan. Always! True scientist! His inventions strange but very interesting :D Scientist's language very funny. When Kowalski start to explain something, it's line OMG, wut :DD Which makes it really funny :) In many movies\cartoons in every team must be clever guy, i think in penguins it depicts the most fun, cool and exciting!

Rico-"Mad KABOOM Guy" I gave him this name :) Very strange one, which makes him very special in this team. He can only speak a few words, and the rest he can only make sounds. That's what makes him special :) Really funny guy :) YOu should watch him and u will understand me :))

Private-cutie of team. Very friendly one :) He always finds in people's kindness and honesty (with Skipper all the way around). When Skipper see potential enemy, Private meanwhile trying friend with him :) Hahaha :) So cute one ;)

What about another guys in Zoo. I just wanna say Dreamworks have very good taste!!! All personage are amazing! I cant imagine them in another taste's! Keep doing Dreamworks! I love you!!

10\10!!!!! <3

PS. Sorry for low English :)
