Just love the series
28 November 2009 | by ctyankee1See all my reviews

I just love the TV series the animation and the voices that go with the characters are hysterically funny. I especially like King Julian. He has a way of speech that is humorous and he makes up his own words. He praises the Sky Spirit which is really funny. Danny Jacobs does a great job with King Julian's voice.

I thought Sasha Cohen was King Julian in the TV series because Danny Jacobs sounds just like him. The dance movements of King Julian, the facial expressions especially the eyes make him one of the funniest characters in the series.

In one of the TV episodes "Private" got King Julian's dance groove which was really funny and the Private could flap his flippers and do great moves like KJ.

All the characters are unique and have their own thing which is carried over from the movie Madagascar.

To me the best animated movies are the ones with the Penquins of Madagasgar, the TV Series Penguins and also Ice Age 1 and 2.

The voices of Manny and Sloth are my favorite in Ice Age and also the opossums. I don't think anyone can make Sloth funnier, I die laughing just listening to his speech and the way he dramatizes, like laying across the rock on his back.

They all have great animation, funny, silly characters and they basically kept the same or same sounding voices that made the character popular.

All are lots of laughs and fun.
