This show is pretty much harmless and it's one of those few cartoon shows that actually has good role models and messages. The penguins are always relying on each other, they work as a team to solve problems, and sometimes they teach the "bad guys" in the show a lesson. King Julian is a little arrogant and conceited with himself, but not over the top. The main focus is on the penguins and how they work together to overcome challenges, no matter how hard they seem.
There are only four kid/family TV shows still airing that I actually watch: Spongebob Squarepants, Fairly Oddparents (TRIXIE STINKS!!!), Hannah Montana (JAKE RYAN STINKS!!!) and Penguins of Madagascar. Commonly referred to in our house as "Penguins" for short. This is a great show for the family, though Private is the only one you want your kids copying. He's the goody-two-shoes short penguin. I could go on for hours about how great I think this show is, but this website isn't for saying how good something is but how clean, etc. it is.
If you think the word "butt" is funny, this show is for you. If you cannot handle the word "booty," this show is not for you. If you can only tolerate the word "fanny," most likely, this show is not for you. If you couldn't even get through this review because you can't stand any of those words I mentioned, steer clear at this show at all costs. Of course, since you didn't even finish the review, I guess you wouldn't have heard my advice. Hmm. Well, I guess you'd know anyway, person-who-isn't-even-reading-this. If you don't like your kids hearing those words, that's what this website is for. And this review. If you're like me, rush to your TV, it may be showing right now and you don't wanna miss it. If it is, I don't wanna miss it either. Later!
