According to the audio commentary the directors of the film originally didn't want the characters to say Madagascar in the movie but they caved in and decided to let Julien introduce it later in the movie. See more »

This was the most obnoxious animation I've ever seen. I could barely stand to watch the movie, as the characters were constantly yelling in my face. Every character reminded me of Poochy from the Simpsons, in the worst ways possible.
The story was virtually nonexistent (where's the climax? Where's the END?!) And the animation was bad. I understand that the creators were trying for a specific style, but they failed. Its ugly and looks unfinished.
Dreamworks needs to learn that inserting celebrity voices (Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, Jada Pinkett Smith, David Schwimmer) and then copying other movies is not a recipe for a good movie.
