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

Alex:

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.

Marty:

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

Alex:

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.

Marty:

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!

Melman:

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

Marty:

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?

Alex:

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.

Marty:

Or any kind of lion, really.            

Planning Ahead

Marty:

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?

Alex:

How about…NOT being shot out of a cannon?

Best Part of Traveling

Alex:

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

Marty:

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

There. Over there is the garden. Encased in shrubery. Lightly sun kissed. It called the girl. She listened. Skipping. She skipped toward the garden. She entered through its gates. A leaf-strewn path welcomed her. Fresh Gardenias, Peonies, and Daisies. They all greeted her. They all called her toward them, the rose bush most compelling. Skipping. She skipped toward the rose bush. The roses hugged and caressed the girl. The girl hugged and caressed the roses. A gleam of light ran across her eye. She looked at her bottom right. Steel. A steel door. This door didn't call. It beckoned, yelled, pulled, enticed. She pulled open the latch and fell inside. She landed on a surprisingly soft bed of flowers. Roses to be specific. She spotted a tall woman. Dark chocolate hair cascaded down her shoulders. Her skin tinged with chlorophyll. Her irises were deep blood red and laced with gold. The Rose Queen. She emanated mystical coldness. "I'm sorry." she whispered. She flicked her finger upwards. The roses grew thorn-ridden vines. They enveloped around the girl. They punctured her. She screamed out of pain and fright, but she kept fighting. "HELP! I'LL DO ANYTHING!" the girl cried. "Anything?" the Queen whispered "Anything!" the girl said. All of a sudden, a golden sword floated in midair. She took it with her only free hand. She began to slash away at the vines. She finally was able to climb out of the bush. "Thank you." the girl said to the Queen. A soft tear came down the Rose Queen's cheek. "I'm so sorry." she said Before the girl can ask why, the Queen began to dissolve into a green sparkling light. The only thing left was the sparkling light. The girl gasped. The light went directly inside of her. She fell to the ground and screamed. Her hair turned dark brown. Her skin became tinged with chlorophyll. She grew taller. The little bit of blood she had left went to her irises. Gold began to lace up ###### ### irises. A new bush grew with new colorful roses. She stood up and sat on a newly developed golden throne. A new Rose Queen has been born.
