"The Penguins of Madagascar" (previously known as ""Penguins!") is an American CGI Animated TV series broadcast on Nickelodeon, starring the Penguins from the 2005 film, "Madagascar". This is the first Nicktoon produced with DreamWorks Animation.


Four wacky penguins named Skipper (the leader of the group), Kowalski (the smartest of the group), Private (the youngest),and Rico (the craziest), will rule the roost at their Central Park Zoo home. At times their secret missions beckon them to venture out onto the busy streets of New York City. Just as the team thinks it has its urban acreage under control, a new neighbor moves in next door: Julien, King of the Lemurs.


* Skipper (Tom McGarth): The leader of the group. He's really good at barking orders out, naming plans, and slapping the others.

* Kowalski (Chris Miller): The smartest of the penguins. He's good at forming plans for the group and usually takes notes for Skipper.

* Private (Christopher Knights): The youngest of the group. He's mostly good at cracking codes, and is often slapped by Skipper. Also loves taking notes for Skipper. In the Christmas Caper short (found on the Madagascar DVD), he was captured by the old lady.

* Rico (John DiMaggio): Psychotic knife wizard and explosives expert. Rico somewhat displays a certain talent for the culinary arts. Plus, he has dark circles under his eyes. Also, in the short, The Madagascar Penguins in a Christmas Caper, Rico has a small scratch on his lower face. However, he does not have it in the actual movie.
