Five Minutes From ‘Merry Madagascar’


I realize that everyone wasn’t in the same boat, but I really enjoyed the first “Madagascar” movie.

I thought it was funny, charming and well cast (Chris Rock, David Schwimmer, Ben Stiller, Jada Pinkett-Smith, Cedric the Entertainer, Andy Richter and Sacha Baron Cohen were all good in it). And I thought the Penguins were especially entertaining.

I thought the sequel was less of the same. It had its moments, and overall I was glad they made it, but the scenes involving the old woman and her tour bus were terrible.

In between the movies, in 2005, we had “The Madagascar Penguins in a Christmas Caper” which is simply 11 minutes well spent during the holiday season.

And now, we have a holiday special, “Merry Madagascar,” that features the main characters. It debuted Nov. 17 on NBC and currently is available on DVD.

Here are five minutes from the special to help you celebrate the holiday season:
