Other mistake: In the scene on the boat where the mute monkey is reading the notice on the penguin's box, and signing to the other, the monkey who can speak (but not read) is translating faster than the mute monkey is signing. For instance, he states the notice says "Kenya" before the mute monkey fingerspells "Kenya".

Trivia: There is a scene when the lemurs are showing a book called "To Serve Lemur". This is similar to one of the classic episodes of The Twilight Zone, "To Serve Man" when the "aliens" allegedly come in peace but actually want to eat the people of earth.

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."

Question: This applies to both Madagascar movies. Does anybody know why Sasha Baron Cohen (Julian the lemur) never shows his face and is barely mentioned in the DVDs for these movies?

Chosen answer: Sacha Baron Cohen is a very private man; he is rarely seen in public, and when he is in public, he is usually dressed as some of his other movie roles (Borat, Bruno, etc.) He has even mentioned once that he wants his characters to be famous, but he wants to live a normal life, so he is rarely interviewed by press.
