Video: MELISSA McCARTHY on Nick's The Penguins of Madagascar
Emmy Award-winning actress Melissa McCarthy (of Mike and Molly, Bridesmaids) guest stars on Nickelodeon’s hit CG animated series, The Penguins of Madagascar, this Sunday, May 6 at 10 AM ET/PT.

McCarthy will lend her voice to a love struck ostrich named Shelly, who will play a very important part in Rico’s life. In the episode, entitled “Love Takes Flightless”, the ostrich Shelly accidentally gets stuck in quick-drying cement, and only Rico can save her. The act of heroism results in Shelly falling in love with the penguin, but Rico’s heart belongs only to his doll.

The Penguins of Madagascar currently holds the record as Nickelodeon’s most-watched series premiere in network history with 6.4 million total viewers, boasting of six Daytime Emmy Awards in 2011, including Outstanding Children’s Animated Program, Outstanding Performer in an Animated Program (Danny Jacobs) and Outstanding Writing in Animation. Penguins also received the 2012 Golden Reel Award for Best Sound Editing: Animation in Television and two Annie Awards for Voice Acting in a Television Production and Editing in Television Production.
