Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that if your kids are already fans of these scheming penguins and the rest of the Madagascar gang, they're sure to want to tune in to see what this latest adventure brings. Overall the special is age-appropriate for kids, although there's some cartoon violence (laser guns damage buildings, animals slap each other) and short-lived peril surrounding a favorite character's well-being. And many surprises pop out on screen, which might make littler kids a little jumpy. Aside from that, though, the show's wacky characters are a real crowd pleaser, and there's enough humor targeted toward adults that parents will enjoy it, too.

Sexual Content

In dance numbers, some of the characters shake their "booty," but there's nothing overtly sexual.


Laser guns slice through buildings and come perilously close to the characters. Animals slap each other and slip and fall; a missile pursues a penguin but never hits its mark.


Not applicable

Social Behavior

Teamwork and relying on friends' help are strong themes, as Skipper learns that he's more likely to succeed when he's got a crew watching his back. The villain's evil plans eventually prove to be his undoing. In one scene, a boy mentions that he'll put an embarrassing photo of his teacher on the Internet. Good and evil are clearly defined.


The penguins are part of an extensive merchandise line inspired by the Madagascar movies.
