Well done boys.

It looks like ice cold sushi for breakfast.

No, no son. Over here.

See the lion, look at the lion, you get the lion.

Now son, if you are going to grow up and be like your daddy someday

you got to learn how to fight.

Alakay, let me show you something, OK?

You see this mark?

You and me are the same and when you're bigger,

you are gonna be alpha lion just like your daddy.

Now, let me see you fight. Ready?

No Alakay, no dancing.

You just amuse yourself, don't you?

You are a strange kid. You are a strange man.

Oh come on, let's try it again.

It's so disappointing when they don't grow up

the way you want it to.

Oh come on.

You are not challenging me again, are you?

Look on the bright side Zuba. After I...

...defeat you and take over as alpha lion,

you will have so much more time

to spend with your pathetic excuse of a son.

Before I kick your butt, let me ask you,

why do you even want to become the alpha lion?

I am better looking, I have better hair,

I am deceivingly smart and...

I want everyone else to do what I say.

We'll fight on three.


Pay attention Alakay.

Daddy gonna show you how it's done.

Two, three.

Who is alpha lion?

You are.

Don't you forget it.

And that Alakay is how you attack.


That's it. Here kitty kitty.

Ah, this one is a beauty.

It will be worth a few bucks.

It just gets easier and easier.


Alakay, Alakay, Alakay!


No, no, no!



Alakay! Daddy got you, hold on.





I don't like looks of this guy.

Well, I think he is kind of cute.

I think he is kind of show off.

You think he is cute?

The king of New York City.

Alex the lion!

I still think he is kind of a show off.

You got to give it to him, the guy is an animal.

Maybe you should take a break.

You know, we could all use a vacation.

Come on. Where on earth would we go on vacation.

I don't know about you but I wanna go to Connecticut.

On the loose,

several animals including the world famous Alex

the lion the king of New York...

...escaped from the Central Park Zoo tonight.

The escapees were finally cornered

in Grand Central Station.

It was a very bad kitty.

Animal rights activists who convinced zoo officials

to have the escaped animals sent to Africa...

...were stunned to learn that

the shipping freighter carrying the animals

was reported missing today.

Tonight hundreds of New Yorkers have gathered

at the Central Park Zoo

to mourn the loss of their beloved zoo animals.

The question on everyone's mind:

where are they now.

I like to move it, move it!

He likes to move it, move it!

She likes to move it, move it!

We like to?

Move it!

We are gonna miss you little fuzz buckets.

You guys had been a great crowd.

Glad we can introduce you to the toilet.

If you ever come to look at Central Manhattan,

feel free to call first.

Seriously no, call. OK?

Settle down, settle down everybody. Ssh... Be quite.

You can't leave without this.

Hey. Surprise freaks!

Look. Shake it, shake it.

Yeah, I am a lady, I am a lady everyone.

I am a lady.

Not really, it's me, it's King Julien.

Which of you was attracted to me?

Hands up.

Hey freaks!

You will be very glad to hear that I am coming with you.

Oh no, thank you.

Yes thank you. It's my plane.

Until I return with the spoils from the new country...

...Stevie will be in charge.

I don't think they liked that idea so much Julien.

What is that you are saying Stevie?

Oh, oh, no!

What? Really? No, you didn't say that.

Oh it's not even possible.

Stevie says:

Let them eat the cake!

King Julien wait for me.

I'm all packed.

I have such a whole itinerary plan.

Oh no. It's Mort. He's so annoying.

Don't let him on.

Stop that thing, he is carrying scissors and hand cream.

Everybody in quickly. Get in. Get in.

Get in quick. Get in quick.

Struts. Checked. Fillets. Checked.

Engine. Checked. Coffee mate. Checked.

Oopsie daisy.

That is got to be the second biggest slingshot I have ever seen.

But it is got to have to do.

Attention. This is your captain speaking.

In the event of a water emergency,

place the vest over your head then kiss your life good bye!

New York City, here we come baby.

[Skipper] ...sit back, relax and pray your personal gods that...

...this hunk of junk flies.

Personal god, hunk, what?

We are going sir.

Open the door. I am outside.

In case of losing cabin pressure,

please place the mask over your face

to hide your terrified expressions from the other passengers.

Excuse me miss.

But aren't these supposed to be attached to my seat.

No sir.

OK. boys. Launch.





Hey, Mort.


That was weird.

Hey, somebody is dreaming ha?

I think I just saw Mort on the wing of the plane.

You got Madagascar on the brain.

... it was quite a, it was incredible, wasn't it?

I think we will see much more fun

the further way we get from.

Yeah, like when you beat me on the butt?

I am gonna take that, that thing you are holding on to...

...and I am going to use it, on stage.

So all part of my little actor's salad bar

of emotional tidbits.

Are the butts next to the crutons at the salad bar?

You don't need to be sarcastic Marty.

Hey guys, you know, I was thinking.
