Storyline

A rookery of penguins with attitude -- leader Skipper, brainy Kowalski, loony Rico and young Private -- in Central Park Zoo embarks on what it sees as a series of strike-force missions until confronting an unwelcome challenge to its dominance from a new zoo resident: Julien, King of the Lemurs, in a sequel to the hit animated movies.

Has potential
1 April 2009 | by zmysticoSee all my reviews

First off, I was totally stoked when I heard the penguins were getting their own show...until I actually saw it. The selling point to me was I was going to see more of what made me watch the Madagascar movies...THE PENGUINS! For some unknown reason the writers feel the 4 penguins alone are not enough, so they have to have the monkeys (which are cool in moderation), a otter-girl (she's OK), and Julien, Mort and the other marsupial thing (what kills the show). So instead of a show focusing on the antics of 4 penguins, we now have 2 15-min episodes featuring 9 characters, with LOTS of Julien's same "I am king Julien blah blah blah". The show would be A lot better if the just did 1 30-minute cartoon and cut out the unnecessary sidekicks...either let the otter-girl "sidekick" one show, or let the monkeys do it. The marsupials do the same exact thing they did in both movies. I want to see more of the psychotic navy-seal commando penguins, and stop serving them up to Julien.
