Directed by: Tom McGrath, Eric Darnell
Starring: Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, Jada Pinkett Smith, Cedric the Entertainer, David Schwimmer
Alex the lion, Marty the zebra, Gloria the hippo and Melman the giraffe live together at New York's Central Park Zoo. Marty tries running away from the zoo, hoping to live in the wild. When Alex, Gloria and Melman break out of their cages too, they get caught and end up being zoo transferred. But they all accidentally end up on Madagascar, where they meet King Julien and his kingdom of lemurs.
Suggested correction: Just because it appears dry on the surface doesn't mean there isn't water between the slats of wood making it drip.
Private: Skipper, should we tell em the ship is outta gas?
Skipper: Just smile and wave, boys, just smile and wave.
Trivia: In the scene where Marty the Zebra is building his shelter, Alex gets jealous and looks to a basketball with a handprint face with grass for hair and says, "Shut up, Spalding". This is a reference to the film Cast Away, in which Tom Hanks' character, Chuck Noland, starts talking to a Wilson volleyball and gives it the name "Wilson."
