Alex, Marty, Gloria and Melman are still fighting to get home to their beloved Big Apple. Their journey takes them through Europe where they find the perfect cover: a traveling circus, which they reinvent - Madagascar style.
Spoiled by their upbringing and unaware of what wildlife really is, four animals from the New York Central Zoo escape, unwittingly assisted by four absconding penguins, and find themselves in Madagascar.
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.

Nick has finally astonished me, by finally showing a good show for once. Ever since 2008, nickelodeon was ditching all its good shows, and replacing them for terrible ones. And episodes of the remaining shows were just plain terrible. But Penguins of Madagascar fixed that problem in advance. The show takes what made the 90s cartoons great, zany action, and made it 3d and with the penguins we already loved from the Madagascar movies. This show is funny, actiony, and very easy to get involved in. It's great for children, and sometimes even teenagers. It features some characters from the movie, the lemurs, the monkeys, and of course the penguins. Each episode is almost completely different, unlike Fanboy and Chum Chum which every episode is about frosty freezy freeze. And the jokes are almost always hilarious. But then again the show IS by dreamworks, which produced hilarious movies like Shark Tale and Shrek. So this show is really a comeback for nickelodeon. If nick could make more shows this funny and good, they could become the great network it was in the 90's and early 2000's.
