Movie Release Date:March 5, 2010
DVD Release Date:June 1, 2010

Penguins of Madagascar
The most adorable characters from the first three animated "Madagascar" movies were the penguins, the seldom right but never in doubt leader Skipper (Tom McGrath), the often right but never listened to Kowalski (Chris Miller), the literally explosive Rico (Conrad Vernon), and the ever-loyal Private

Coming Soon: Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell, the Miniseries
