17 Reasons to Love Madagascar

The movie Madagascar has turned itself into franchise with two other movies and a television show dedicated to its rag-tag team of penguins. Let’s also not forget the number of shorts and its long line of merchandise the franchise based on zoo animals can also boast.

The Madagascar movies just get better and better, and have managed to rope in an older demographic. Everyone loves the hilarious characters, implicit innuendos, sharp humour and larger than life plot lines. It also helps that the franchise has a star-studded cast that include David Schwimmer, Chris Rock, Ben Stiller, and Jada Pinkett Smith.

In the most recent instalment, Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted,  their devoted audience has been introduced to a Russian tiger, a sexualized grizzly bear, and an emotional sea lion. It only goes up hill from here.
