The Penguins of Madagascar: New To The Zoo (Review)

Who doesn't love the all-mighty and tough-talking penguins of the Madagascar series? Seems like penguins are everywhere now; in other movies such as Surf's Up (2007) and Happy Feet (2006). I received the DVD, "THE PENGUINS OF MADAGASCAR: New to the Zoo," and had the opportunity to provide you with this review. I was hoping to receive the other DVD as well: "THE PENGUINS OF MADAGASCAR: Happy Julien Day" to review too, but I can always find that one at the stores.

Little Brandon and I only watched the first couple episodes, but didn't finish the DVD. He kinda lost interest a little and fell asleep. He is only 2 years old (22-months to be exact) and doesn't know much yet, so I had to explain to him what was going on. I thought the stories were pretty funny and cute. There's a bit of action here and there with those little penguins. Brandon can always watch the movie again and understand it when he's a bit older.

About the Episodes
1) In The Line Of Doody: The penguins have to protect the City Zoo Commissioner from Frankie the pigeon's wrath.

2) The Big Squeeze: When the little mammals in the zoo start to disappear, the penguins suspect the new boa constrictor, Salvio.

3) Out Of The Groove: Julien is horrified when the baboons' dance routine gets more attention than his own.

4) Skorca: On watch-duty, Private sees a terrifying Skorca, a sky orca whale.

5) The Red Squirrel: Skipper's idol, Rockgut, accuses all of the zoo animals of being his nemesis, the Red Squirrel.

6) Jiggles: Kowalski accidentally creates a living blob of jelly named Jiggles.

7) Untouchable: A tiny frog with a nasty attitude moves into the zoo and starts terrorizing the animals.

8) Cat's Cradle: Max the cat is on the run from evil animal control Officer X and comes to the Penguins for help.

August 10, 2010, the movie is now available on DVD from Nickelodeon and DreamWorks Animation SKG. Starring the madcap pack of Penguins and everyone’s favorite lemur King Julien from DreamWorks Animation SKG, Inc’s (Nasdaq: DWA) phenomenally successful MADAGASCAR franchise, each DVD includes eight outrageous episodes from Nickelodeon’s Emmy and Annie Award-winning* series.
