Storyline

Suffering from a serious case of amnesia thanks to naughty King Julien, Santa Claus and his reindeer find themselves marooned in exotic Madagascar. With St. Nick's swift sleigh crammed with toys and gifts, the castaway team of friends--Alex, Marty, Melman, and Gloria--are now the only ones who can attempt to save Christmas. However, will the homesick New Yorkers set aside their ambitions for the children of the world? Written by Nick Riganas

Trivia

The lemur natives are pelted with lumps of coal every year by Santa, presumably because they are always naughty, as per the original mythology of Saint Nicholas. See more »

Festive and fun
4 December 2009 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This animated short is about the Madagascar creatures wanting to go back to New York for Christmas, but things get complicated when they meet the amnesic Santa Claus.

I find the story quite festive, given the fact that the setting is mostly in Madagascar. I enjoyed watching "Merry Madagascar" more than the regular "Madagascar", because I find the animals less annoying and more fun. The story is squeaky clean, and can be enjoyed by people of all ages. There are even a few one liners for adults, and it did make me laugh. "Julianuary" is a great invention, I hope they will capitalise on this in future "Madagascar"!
