The Madagascar Penguins in: A Christmas Caper Reviews
May 13, 2010
The best characters from Madagascar return in this funny short animation film.
There are so many sight gags and jokes in this 11-minute animated short it would make your head swim. The artwork is fantastic and the humor is equally fabulous. It's all a story about four penguins ready to celebrate Christmas when one of them goes out to cheer up a lonely polar bear. The others, with the Black Hawk Down credo of never leaving anyone behind, go after him and rescue the little guy from a brutal old woman and her vicious poodle.
The story really is secondary to all the clever gags and visuals, too many to mention in here.

It was a very funny and very entertaining DreamWorks animated short. It had great animation, lots of laughs, very great visuals, really great music, great characters, great adventure and a very fun story. It's one of the best animated shorts of 2005. I've seen this short movie before "Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit" and after "Madagascar." I highly recommend this short movie to both kids and adults.

Of all the Dreamworks shorts The Madagascar Penguins in a Christmas Caper has to be on of the best. Though no big name voice talents are involved the witty writing is all that is really needed. Some of the jokes are laugh out loud hilarious and some of the situations induce mild chuckling. For a Christmas short you can't do much better.

I watch it every Christmas - Rico, Private, Skipper and (my favourite) Kowalski. The four penguins of the Madagascar movies who rightly got there own TV series as they are arguably the funniest characters in the films (Penguins are superb film characters at least in Surf's Up and Madagascar).
Amusingly, this short is funnier than both of the features combined (which is a great accomplishment because they aren't shabby either).
- Yeah, Rico, Kaboom...
