The Penguins

If you don’t know them, you should. They began with bit parts in the movie Madagascar and now are certified, uh, certified, well, that’s hard to day. But they are quite entertaining, whether you are little people or an old codger like myself. They have appeared in another movie and now have their own show on Nickelodeon. I must confess, I who cares for almost none  of today’s cartoons, really enjoy these guys.

Brief historical interlude. Real cartoons were George of the Jungle, Rocky and Bullwinkle, Top Cat etc.

Now back to the dapper ones. Skipper is the boss, Kowalski is planning among other things, Rico is demolition and Private really tries hard and Skipper keeps working with him. They have several memorable phrases. Among them are, ” progress report”, “just smile and wave, boys (reserved for unsuspecting tourists at their home in the Bronx Zoo). These two are spoken often by the scale model Skipper that sits on my computer. Another good one is  “cute and cuddly” which is debatable but Skipper said it.

One of the best descriptions I read was that they are psychotic, another Navy Seal commando  types . Either one works.Ahh, it almost takes me back to the days of Wile E  Coyote who just needed another supplier besides Acme.
