If you like animation, and you like Christmas, then you will love Merry Madagascar. I don't really get into writing reviews, but they help me when I am trying to make a decision, and I think this is one to write about. My grandchildren love this CG cartoon. It is done with all the thought and care put into a full blown movie. I recommend it highly.

Santa while on his annual trip to bring joy to the world is shot down by Julien the king of the lemurs, who mistakes the toy maker as the "red night goblin." The story takes Alex, Marty, Melman, and Gloria and presses them into service for an absent St. Nick who is struck with amnesia when his sled crashes. In the meantime, while Santa tries to remember who he is on the shores of Madagascar, he inadvertently teaches Julien the lesson of giving. All of this fun is wrapped up in a 30 minute show that will see regular Yule time viewings at my household. Merry Christmas!

I am a fan of all of the Madagascar movies and the entire core group is back for Merry Madagascar. My kids have watched this several times and they are laughing hard each time they see it. It runs less than 30min and it really goes by fast.

I bought this at Target. I haven't seen this movie before until I brought it home. It was so good. It was on TV when I was 14 (a year after my phobia of the lion's roar in the style of what you hear in the Movies, TV, video games, & audiobooks was gone). When the 8 main protagonists went to deliver the presents, I pointed out how they reacted when they flew past Moscow and London. One I said: They could've gotten hypothermia. And the other I said: They could've died. I've grown to love the Madagascar franchise. It was funny in the end that the 4 main protagonists (Alex, Marty, Melman, & Gloria) stood underneath the dandruff snow and when Alex got hit by a coconut and ended up having amnesia. When Alex was up and asked "Who's Alex?" I said: You are, silly. I've never heard of Julienuary. Geez, a lot of christmas movies had to deal with having to save christmas. I mean it's not like it's going to be taken away. Christmas has always been celebrated since the birth of Jesus Christ. I loved it so much that I wanted to add it to my other children's movies in French & Italian. Luckily, the french was on this dvd. Otherwise it would be difficult. When Alex was coming up with a plan to go back to New York while delivering presents, I said (as if I was to reply back): You said that leaving the zoo was the best thing that's ever happened to you. I rate this movie a 5 out of 5 stars.

When I watched Madagascar a few years back, I was less than impressed. As a result, I never have bothered to watch the sequels. I may have to reconsider that after having seen the delightful Merry Madagascar.

The made for TV Christmas special finds the gang of zoo animals trying to escape Madagascar and get back to their zoo home before Christmas. They all have dreams of what they will enjoy most. However, their escape balloon is shot down by King Julius (Danny Jacobs) and his followers.

What they learn is that every year on December 24th, someone flies through the sky shooting rocks at Julius. When Alex (Ben Stiller) the lion steps up and shoots down this villain, they make a shocking discovery – it’s Santa. Worse yet, he has amnesia. Suddenly, it is up to Alex and the gang to save Christmas. Can they do it?

This show was pretty funny from start to finish. There are plenty of jokes for kids and adults to enjoy, and I was laughing the entire way through. Yes, there are some lessons to be learned, but they felt like a real part of the story.

One problem with the original holds true here. I just can’t quite buy David Schwimmer. Every time that Melvin the Giraffe speaks, I just hear Ross from Friends, and it takes me out of the film. Even though the rest of the cast is well known, I don’t have that issue with them. We’ve got the likes of Chris Rock, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Cedric the Entertainer in this special, and they all do a great job. And it’s not that David is bad, but I can’t picture Ross as an animated giraffe.

The animation is good here. It might not have any blow you away moments, but there are still some nice shots over the course of the special, and it never gets in the way of the story.

You know something? Whenever I watch the Penguins of Madagascar on Nickelodeon, there's this weird feeling I happen to have. It's not that the show was bad. Heck, it's better than what's on Cartoon Network today, but it's just strange to see a Madagascar series run for so long without the movie series' cast: Alex the lion, Marty the zebra, Gloria the hippo, and Melman the giraffe. Fortunately, this is a return to form.

Like anything you expect from Dreamworks, the comedy is as funny as the average movie they make, and the characters are memorable. Plus, the storyline is ridiculous. King Julian (lemur) fears a mysterious being that is attacking them with candy canes. Of course, it was Santa Claus. But he doesn't remember anything, since Alex threw a ground stake at him, not knowing who he was. Because of this, the cast we know and love has to deliver the presents.

Their journey is just plain crazy, with silly situations, such as wondering how to get into the house unsuspected. Meanwhile, King Julian tries to show Santa how he celebrates Christmas (aka calls it Julianuary and has people bring him gifts). It's really fun watching what the characters do and what they say, as in any well-made CGI comedy. Although not a full movie, Merry Madagascar fits right in with the original series.
