On Christmas Eve, Private slips out of the zoo for some last-minute shopping. In the city he's mistaken as a cute chew toy by a mean old woman named Nana, who gives Private to her vicious dog, Mr. Chew. On a mission to rescue their penguin pal, Skipper, Kowalski and Rico risk life and flipper as they take on Nana and Mr. Chew with an explosive solution that will leave you laughing out loud.Written by
When Skipper, Rico, and Kowalski find the Private, they see him in a sidewalk cart with the old lady inspecting its merchandise. Skipper then dons a pair of night-vision goggles to zoom in and view Private and subsequently the old lady purchasing him as a toy. When the action is shown as if the viewer was looking through the goggles, red text on a HUD very quickly scrolls above the green night vision image with the following text:

I went to see Wallace and Gromit last night and was surprised to see this little gem tagged on to the start.
The story follows a group of penguins that are trying to rescue one of their own after he leaves to buy a Christmas present for someone else, only to wind up being put in a stocking himself.
This short was just as well made as the full length features in every way.
I wasn't overly impressed with Madagascar, but this short was superb. It was far funnier than Madagascar itself, and possibly even Wallace and Gromit. As someone else has already said, it seems odd to tag a Christmas theme on the front of a Halloween one.
It's worth the admission fee for this alone.
