Storyline

As Alex the lion yearns to feel the joy of a romantic Valentine's Day in sun-kissed Africa, out of the blue, a heart-shaped bottle of the precious and potent "Love Potion no. 9" falls from the sky on King Julien's head. Undoubtedly, this must be a sign from the heavens, and now, all animals--great or small--will see why this is Alex's favourite holiday. That is if the furry emperor doesn't get greedy. Will everyone in the tawny savannah catch a whiff of love's irresistible elixir? Written by Nick Riganas

Predictable, but sweet and fun!

I love the Madagascar series. The original wasn't excellent, but it was pretty good fun, Escape 2 Africa was an improvement over the first, but Madagascar 3 was even better! So, when I heard that a valentine's day special was made for the franchise, I watched it online and enjoyed it. OK, it's not an excellent special by any means, but it's pretty good.

The storyline is predictable, bit it had some sweet romantic moments with the main and minor characters, especially the romance between Gloria & Melman which was really cute. Some of the jokes aren't nearly as funny as the films' humor, but I was given a chuckle here and there. The characters are still likable as they were in the previous films and the voice acting including Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, Sacha Barom Cohen, and others, is solid, but the animation comes across as the best aspect of the entire special.

Overall, Madly Madagascar is predictable like I said before, but as a fan of the franchise, I'm recommending this to those who grew up with the original and loved it!
