Plot[edit]

Valentine's Day is one of Alex's favorite holidays back in the zoo, he was practically showered with Valentines from numerous admirers, but now that he's in Africa, he's finding that Valentine's Day is not what he was used to.

Taking place during Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa, Marty meets an Okapi girl who strikes his fancy, but she's not that interested until Marty finds a love potion (thanks to the penguins) and puts it on now she is paying him attention, unfortunately, so are 90% of the females on the savannah.

At first this is great, but after a while, Marty finds that being irresistible isn't all it's cracked up to be. It's Melman's first Valentine's Day with Gloria, and as such, he's determined to make it a perfect one, even if it means going a bit overboard. It's Gloria's first Valentine's Day with Melman and as such she's quite excited but he seems to be ignoring her. At one point, when Melman is spotted by Gloria, she thinks he is dumping her on Valentine's Day. King Julien finds a bottle of "Love potion number 9" and decides to try and sell it to the various animals on the savannah. Skipper's bobble-head doll wife, Lola, has 'run off' with another bobble-head doll.
