Everyone’s favorite Madagascar penguins are sliding onto the small screen in their very own TV show! King Julien and his wacky lemur friends, Maurice and Mort along for the ride, and they make life for the Penguins a total zoo! Check out the premier on Saturday March 28th at 9:30 PM (ET/PT), right after the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards.


From Big Screen to Small

The original gang from Madagascar is staying in Africa a little longer, so it’s up to the Penguins to rule the roast at the Central Park zoo. Sacha Baron Cohen voiced King Julien in the two Madagascar movies, but he’s not back for the show. Lucky for us, Nickelodeon did a great job finding another voice actor who sounds just like SBC—and his jokes are just as kooky!


Full Force Flippers

Skipper is the fearless leader of the militaristic pack of penguins, but his bravado sometimes leads Kawasaki, Rico and Private into some obnoxious adventures outside the zoo—like in one of the first episodes, Launchtime, when Skipper decides the only way to get away from some unwanted houseguests is to make a rocket ship and fly to the moon! Once there, the penguins meet a moon cat who teaches Skipper an important lesson.


Meet Marlene

The Haunted Habitat episode introduces a new, sassy character into the mix—Marlene is a chatty otter who was raised in Northern California’s Monterey Bay Aquarium. The California girl makes a sunny addition to the New York zoo crew, but she flits between alliances—sometimes she pals around with the Penguins and sometimes she monkeys around with King Julien and co.


Talented Team

The executive producers, Mark McCorkle and Bob Schooley, also created the hit animated series Kim Possible—so you know you’re in store for some great visuals, solid storytelling and action-packed adventures mixed with biting, sarcastic humor. The duo also worked on the heartwarming live action movie, Hotel for Dogs, which stars Emma Roberts.
