Nickelodeon scores with The Penguins of Madagascar President's Day special

Last week, Nickelodeon debuted The Penguins of Madagascar President’s Day special, Dr. Blowhole’s Revenge, earning the top ratings spot for the evening. The episode featured special guest star Neil Patrick Harris, star of “How I Met Your Mother”, as the penguins’ long-time nemesis out for revenge and to finally conquer the world. Skipper, Kowalski, Rico, and Private face off against the malevolent Dr. Blowhole, attempting to foil his plans. The evil dolphin aims to kidnap King Julien, who Dr. Blowhole mistakenly thinks is Skipper’s best friend. Take a look at a clip of the episode right here

“‘The Penguins of Madagascar’ has been a huge success in transferring from film to television,” said Brown Johnson, President, Animation, Nickelodeon and MTVN Kids and Family Group. “We’re thrilled to give fans this fantastic TV special featuring the multi-talented Neil Patrick Harris as a hilariously disgruntled dolphin.”

The series follows the exploits of the beloved penguin brothers from DreamWorks Animation’s hit feature films Madagascar ($532 million worldwide gross) and Madagascar 2: Escape to Africa (nearly $579 million worldwide). Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private are a group of penguins who believe they are an elite strike force with top-tier commando skills that is headquartered at New York City’s Central Park Zoo. Their orderly world is disrupted by the arrival of the lemurs, who are led by the imperially deluded King Julien.
