Start the review off with what a lot of people want to know, the EPISODE LIST!!! Funny, a DVD and that list just isn't clear up front.
1) Dr. Blowhole's Revenge
2) Truth Ache
3) Command Crisis
4) Go Fish
5) Roomies
6) Needle Point
7) Lunchtime
8) All Chocked Up
9) The Hidden
10 Tangled In The Web

I'll start the review off with the contents of the DVD:
Special Features:
DreamWorks Animation and Nickelodeon Sneak Peeks (the usual suspects here, KungFu Panda, Dragon, Madagascar, Shrek Forever After, The Penguins of Madagascar, Fanboy and ChumChum, and SpongeBob Square Pants)
[...] The Devious Dr. Blowhole Game (you have to go on line to play this, think nick dot com slash blowhole and the special 'secret code' is doctor). So let me be frank here, this is about the lamest thing anyone could do on a DVD.
DreamWorks Animation Video Jukebox - they're cute videos, aw, you know you want to watch these! Cee Lo and Jack Black doing Kung Fu Fighting; the Move It Move It song from Madagascar; Here Comes the Sun from the Bees (Jerry Seinfeld) movie, Shrek, I'm a Believer; and Rockin' the Suburbs from Over the Hedge.
Credits
All 10 end credits strung together - the individual episodes run an abbreviated credit line.

Neil Patrick Harris (Doogie Houser and How I Met Your Mother) doing Dr. Blowhole - once you recognize his voice, it is very funny. Some of the other voice talent sounds very familiar, like Cedric the Entertainer, Ellen DeGeneres, and some other famous people. Alas, they are only people that sound like their famous counterparts.

For the television series aficionados, I hope these details were helpful.

My kids love the Penguins and this is a great DVD. It contains the new episode, Dr. Blowhole, plus two other new episodes. It has seven other previously aired episodes as well. Lots of fun!

When I saw that the Penguins were FINALLY coming to DVD, I was very excited. Unfortunately, the disc falls far short of expectation. The episodes that are included seem to have been chosen at random, and most of the best episodes are missing. The major showpiece, "Dr Blowhole's Revenge", isn't particularly funny or well-written. The other new episodes are lacking as well; the animation on all of the new episodes is choppy and unconvincing, unlike the regular TV episodes. It looks like they were done on the cheap, just to have something new to put on the disc.

Actually, there's every indication that the entire disc was done cheaply and quickly, and unfortunately the end result is a major disappointment. Heck, the back cover doesn't even give you any idea of what's on the disc, as if the layout people didn't know what was going on the disc, and there's no insert card to tell you either. In a world where "Steven Seagal: Lawman" gets a full-blown DVD release, mistreating the Penguins this way is unacceptable.

A word to Nick: It's not too late to do right by the Penguins... when the complete season sets are released, I'll be the first to buy them.

I bought this for my wife is a huge fan of the cartoon. It contains episodes of the cartoon that have been aired and some that haven't. I haven't seen the entire DVD myself. There is no list of the expisode on the back cover or on a slip of paper inside the case, which I don't like. Over 2 hours of cartoons for the price, it's certainly worth it. This is not the 1st series on DVD, just a collection of some of them.

Really impressed w/ this dvd. Unlike other kids shows that put out dvds and have a couple epidodes that last less than an hour this has 10 episodes and is timed at 130 minutes. Was really excited to see more than 2 episodes in the episode list. And this is a show that you won't mind watching repeatedly cause its actually funny. A must own if you babysit. Even if the kids didn't like Madagascar they will like this dvd. Everyone will be picking their favorite penguin because each have their own personality. Skipper the leader w/ his hair brained schemes, Kowalski the planner that has to map out the scheme, Rico the explosives expert who well blows up things,and Private the newbie who is along for the ride. There are also several other characters like the lemers and the otter that lives next door. The main Madagascar characters are not here so don't be dissapointed when you don't see them. Believe me the Penguins are plenty entertaining on their own. Few bonus features include some game trailers and some movie trailers(Shrek Forever After, How To Train Your Dragon) also some music videos. Not only is it long and funny but its a steal at the $7 price Amazon is asking.

Nickelodeon doesn't seem to be broadcasting Penguins of Madagascar episodes any longer and they aren't avaiable on Verizon FIOS on-demand, so I purcased all available 8 Penguins DVDS. This one is fantastic, and so are the other seven DVDs. The total running time is 130 minutes, and the episodes are: Dr. Blowhole's Revenge; Truth Ache; Command Crisis; Go Fish; Roomies; Needle Point; Launchtime; All Choked Up; The Hidden; and Tangled in the Web.
