From the studio that brought you "Shrek," "Madagascar" and "Kung Fu Panda," comes a brand new holiday adventure starring everyone's favorite Central Park zoosters. "Merry Madagascar" begins when Santa and his sleigh unexpectedly crash land on the island, giving the jolly gentleman a case of amnesia. So it falls to Alex, Marty, Melman and Gloria-along with the ever inventive Penguins-to deliver the presents and save Christmas. And it doesn't hurt that Santa's sleigh just might be able to make a little trip to New York City, so they can finally return to their beloved home.
But during their appointed rounds, the four re-discover the magic of giving, and that it is ultimately more important than their own wish to return home. Throw in a long-lasting North Pole / South Pole rivalry between the Penguins and Santa's reindeer, magic flying dust and a King Julien-based holiday called (what else?) "Julianuary," and "Merry Madagascar" serves up a comic holiday story like no other.
