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

Really very good.
7 December 2009 | by philw1See all my reviews

I'm not a big fan of Dreamworks movies (the poor man's Pixar) but nevertheless I love the Madagascar work. I bought this from my local supermarket (exclusively they claimed) expecting it to be a poor quality version of the movies, probably with bad animation and replacement voice talent. Hey, I thought, my 12 year old will still like it. I was wrong: this is beautifully animated to the quality of the movies, has all the original actors and is FUNNIER than the movies too. There's a joke involving penguins and reindeer that had we three in hysterics, perfect! This is only 26 minutes long but well worth it and a valid addition to the Madagascar movies. It could in fact be Madagascar 3 such is the quality.
