  • King Julien tries to be nice

    Today at the zoo, the chimps are disturbed at how King Julien is dancing all around them and won't leave them alone, so they sprout an idea, and tell King Julien must be nice so the Sky Gods won't be mad at him. All is well with King Julien being nice, until this annoys Skipper. This episode was excellent once again. It was funny at some parts such as Julien bugging Mason and Phile, then he sang the Conga song (something familiar like that), Julien trying to be nice at all the parts, the lighting being strucked by (forgot who), and the ending. Overall, a perfect episode. 10/10moreless

    Today at the zoo, the chimps are disturbed at how King Julien is dancing all around them and won't leave them alone, so they sprout an idea, and tell King Julien must be nice so the Sky Gods won't be mad at him. All is well with King Julien being nice, until this annoys Skipper. I thought that this was an excellent episode of "The Penguins of Madagascar". Shoot, it's probably been since December 2010 which was last year since I've seen this episode. I hope to watch this episode again since it is one of my favorite episodes from Season 1. I have watched this episode like 8 times and the storyline is still enjoyable and very funny. Like I said it's been a year since I've watched this episode. I do remember everything about this episode though. King Julien bugging Mason and Phil by dancing around them in the beginning of the episode was super hilarious especially because King Julien refused the chimpanzees to have fun and not be lazy. The chimpanzees also convincing King Julien that the eclipse was a message from the Sky Spirits is very funny. King Julien also doing nice things for all the zoo animals throughout this episode is hilarious as well. A lot of parts made me laugh as well. I also laughed at the very ending when things go back to normal which is King Julien continues to force the chimpanzees to dance with him, Maurice, and Mort. Overall, one of my favorite Season 1 episodes of this show... I really hope they show this episode again real soon, it's been a year since I watched this episode which is a long time. 10/10moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Is it me or when Kowalski says, "The eclipse" when the camera is pointing up towards his face looks very similar to a scene in "Go Fish" when the penguins are about to be awarded with fish?

    • Skipper mentions his enemy Dr. Blowhole for the first time in this episode.

    • When Skipper and Julien are playing cards, Skipper has an ace, a three, an eight and a joker in his hand. When Julien reveals his hand, he has four aces. There are only four aces in a standard set of cards, so how could Julien have 4 aces and Skipper have 1? That would total five aces, which could only happen if they had two decks combined.

  • QUOTES (11)

    • Julien: 4 aces! I win! In your face!

    • Private: You can stop now, please!
      Skipper: Quit being nice already!
      Julien: Ooooh, I see! This is a test to see if I can stay nice, even when you get all mean and screamy. Clever penguins!

    • Julien: Just waiting for you to roll over, so I can fluff up your pillow!
      Skipper: Not neccessary.
      Julien: It's okay, I'm going to stay all night.
      Skipper: I like a hard pillow.
      Julien: I could be your pillow!

    • Private: Oh, hello.
      Julien: You are the nicest guy here, make me be nice! I command you! (grabs beak)
      Private: That wasn't very nice!
      Julien: Then you are failing already.

    • Mason: (to Phil) Ridiculous! The King would never stoop so low!
      Julien: Ehh, how low are we talking? Like...this? (crushes Mort with hand)

    • Mason: Apparently, and this is them talking, not me, they feel you are rude, bossy, selfish, oh and they absolutely LOATHE the all-night dance parties.
      Julien: Maurice, say something to them!
      Maurice: Sorry, I don't speak sky spirit.
      Julien: What can I do to make them love me again, to bring back the sun?!

    • Julien: FOREVER?! No more sun forever?!
      Mason: Phil? (Phil starts doing sign language) 'Fraid so.

    • Mort: Woohoo! Yay for King Julien! (turns on stereo)
      Julien: Come on, you funky monkeys! Jump in line!

    • Mason: (drinking tea) Ah, Sunday morning.
      Julien: Sunday morning? Uh-uh, no. It is still Saturday night, baby. The sky spirits told me.
      Mason: Sky spirits?
      Julien: Yes, they send me signs because I am the king.

    • King Julien:(points to clouds) See that cloud? It says to me party with the panzees.
      Mason: CHIMP-panzees, and we are enjoying a quiet morning if you don't mind.
      King Julien: I do mind! That cloud said party time, so it is time to party, mister! Crank up that crazy conga, Mort!

    • Private:Skipper, something's wrong with the sun!
      Skipper: He finally did it.
      Private: Who did what?
      Skipper:My mad dolphin nemesis Dr. Blowhole. He blew out the sun!
      Kowalski:Actually, according to my calculations, it is the rare cosmic event known as the Solar Eclipse.
      Rico: Huh?
      Skipper: Are you sure it's not the crazed handiwork of my marine mammal foe?
      Kowalski: It's totally natural. The moon is between the earth and the sun--Ooo! It's a total eclipse! WOW! (starts jumping in excitement) Are you as totally stoked about this as I am?
      (Skipper, Private and Rico stare at Kowalski)
      Kowalski: Uhm..it should last only a few minutes.
