MADAGASCAR 3: Travel Tips from Marty and Alex

Having just crossed Europe in their latest adventure, Alex the lion and Marty the zebra offer some expert travel advice for anyone planning to take in the sights of the Continent.  And even if you’re not heading to Europe any time soon, you can enjoy the Zoosters’ uproarious antics in Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted on Blu-ray™ and DVD now!

Getting There


If I had to choose between car, train or plane travel, I’d choose the train, but that’s probably only because we had some, well, mishaps in the car and plane.  In general, I recommend any mode of travel without a penguin or lemur on board.  That said, a car can be a great way to get off the beaten path…but whatever you do, don’t let the zebra drive.


Planes, trains and automobiles will get you where you need to go, but they don’t even come close to being shot out of a cannon.  It’s the only way to fly!  I definitely recommend cannon if you’re in a hurry.   Or a candy gram!  Ooooh, I’m gonna try that next.

What to Pack


I personally like to travel light.  Light and limber, that’s my motto.  Of course the obvious exception is hair conditioner.  You can never carry too much hair conditioner, especially when a certain zebra has a habit of drinking it.


We made it half way across Europe with nothing but our wits…I would not recommend it.  I say pack everything because you never know how long it’s gonna be before you get back home.  Trust me.  And I always bring an extra bag so I have room for souvenirs… like those little bottles of shampoo—they’re delicious!


Hand Sanitizer, cold medicine, tissues, lozenges, toothpaste, floss, sun screen, and bottled water!   I have been to some watering holes that…well let’s just say that just because a hippo tells you it’s safe to drink the water, it’s not!   Especially when the water is brown, opaque and the hippo is bobbing around in it.

Gloria: Melman!!

Blending In


You know what they say: “When in Rome.”  I’m not really sure what that means, but when we were in Rome we barely made it out alive, so I should probably look it up.  But drop me into an op art gallery and, baby, I can blend in!  Wait, what does “blending in” mean again?


Well, I like to think that I blend in well wherever I go because lions have a natural gift for camouflage…as long as whatever I’m standing against is sort of tan-colored.   But if the people get a look at my face, it’s all over.  They start screaming in adoration and then they start running away in adoration. It comes with the territory when you’re a super famous lion.


Or any kind of lion, really.            

Planning Ahead


Not knowing where you’ll be next is exciting.  I mean, one day you’re being chased through the streets of Monte Carlo at 200 miles per hour and the next you’re being shot out of a cannon in the circus!  What could be better than that?


How about…NOT being shot out of a cannon?

Best Part of Traveling


Seeing the sights, trying new food, escaping capture—they’re all fantastic.   But sometimes the best thing about traveling is just being with your peeps


You said it, pal.  Those are some good marshmallows.

my quote is REALLY LONG...   "strength is the only thing that matters in this world. everything else is just an illusion for the weak... stop pretending! knock off that sentimental rubbish! harden your heart! you fool! you have to put aside your mercy... then you might.. MIGHT actually stand a chance! stop trying to convince yourself! HOW DARE YOU GIVE UP! Reach down deep! Take some pride in your heritage! There is only ONE certainty in life... A STRONG PERSON STANDS ABOVE AND CONQUERS ALL! There is no denying what you are... Just wait and see. The more we fight, the more powerful we become!! DON'T TELL ME YOU'RE STILL PREACHING THAT MERCY NONSENSE, THAT MEANS YOU'RE STILL HOLDING BACK! NO MORE WEAK HEARTED EXCUSES! THE STRONGEST WILL FIND A WAY TO SURVIVE, AND THE WEAKEST SHALL PERISH! is that the kind of fate you want for yourself?! ENOUGH! listen to me! You keep running with that self righteous look on your face! Pitiful... Its brute strength that detirmins the outcome of a battle, not goodness! WHY ARE WE SUBJECTING OURSELVES TO THIS? You've always been like this.. you show MERCY to everyone... Even your fiercest enemy's... live every moment of everyday for the singular purpose to meet the next challenge... Even if its bigger than you! test your limits.. push futher beyond! Push yourself to be the strongest there is...."   From dragonball z, vegeta
