Penguins of "Madagascar" Inspire Show On Nickelodeon

The penguins in DreamWorks Animation’s feature film “Madagascar” will soon find themselves the stars of a new TV show on Nickelodeon, scheduled to premiere in early 2009.

Skipper, Rico, Kowalski, and Private will star in a 26-episode series that Nickelodeon and DreamWorks Animation have agreed on.

A tentative title is at the moment “The Penguins of Madagascar,” according to the Hollywood Reporter. The show will make its debut in early 2009.

The foursome appeared in the studio’s 2005 film “Madagascar” as penguins who believe they are in fact spies, that they do not belong in the Central Park Zoo and that they need to return to Antarctica to escape the conspiracy.
