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.
HERE ARE 17 REASONS WHY WE LOVE THE MADAGASCAR FRANCHISE
1) The mischievous penguins
2) Afro Circus
3) Gloria’s fierceness
4) The car chase scenes
5) Some animals are so fluffy you want to put them in your pocket

DAVID SCHWIMMER was disgusted by British food during his recent stay in the country.
The former Friends star criticised the nation’s cuisine after spending time in the country for his role in West End production Some Girl(s) in 2005 and directing his latest movie Run, Fat Boy, Run in London earlier this year (07).
He says, “You guys deep-fry everything. Even healthy British food like Shepherd’s Pie makes you put on 20 pounds after every meal.” (NLI/SMT/LJ)
