Merge 2007[edit]

I have decided to merge the Madagascar characters page, can you please help as much as possible to try and improve the format and layout of the page EwanMclean2005 22:46, 2 August 2007 (UTC)

I hope you plan on including Gloria in this article, since she was one of the principal characters. --Procrastinatrix 18:52, 27 August 2007 (UTC)
I do but I have had very little time to help with this page recently, I have been up to my eyeballs with stuff at home and no time to use wiki. If you want to create the article by all means contribute as much as you can. EwanMclean2005 22:17, 27 August 2007 (UTC)

Merger[edit]

The two articles mentioned document the exact information and I can see no reason to use separate articles for these two characters. LeaveSleaves 14:41, 3 December 2007 (UTC)

  • Agree with the reasons stated above. --NrDg 14:42, 3 December 2007 (UTC)
  • Agree MiltonP Ottawa (talk) 20:11, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

Ages?[edit]

Other than Marty's age, can anyone verify the ages of the other animals in this movie? Somebody is speculating and not giving good reason.--KnowledgeLord (talk) 06:29, 16 September 2008 (UTC)


Request to those watching the page[edit]

Over the last couple of days I have noticed that this page has been vandalised quite considerably, can you all please keep an eye on the page and proof read everything as theres alot going on at the same time. EwanMclean2005 (talk) 18:24, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

Melman[edit]

Is his last name Mankiewicz or Mankowicz, as the article is not clear on this. Tymek (talk) 22:55, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

Argument?[edit]

I edited out a sentence along these lines "actually it is pronounced teetsee if you research it because it is AFRICAN" in the tsitsi section. I think some members had an argument over it as it is unnecessary. the pronunciation is in brackets after the name.

What happend to the bobble head?[edit]

Did the bobble head Skipper married just disappear or what? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.117.81.222 (talk) 02:49, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

No one knows for sure. Some theories include the destruction of the bobblehead, Skipper divorcing the bobblehead and more. But you have to keep in mind that the bobblehead we see in the Penguins of Madagascar movie may well be the same bobblehead in the other movies, and Skipper may not remember.

I Think Moto Moto isn't on there.[edit]

Where's Moto Moto played by Will.I.Am, you know 24.56.20.41 (talk) 02:52, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

Marlene[edit]

I've removed the unsourced information about Marlene's alleged relationship with Skipper, as it counts as original research as well as fan pairing. Wikipedia is not a shipping community, and only relationships that are actually confirmed rather than inferred are permitted. Crablogger (talk) 08:25, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

Madagascan animals removed?[edit]

Why were the sections for the animals from Madagascar removed (i.e, Willie, Stevie, Teemo...) if they describe characters in the series?--KnowledgeLord (talk) 00:09, 25 August 2009 (UTC)

This article needs help[edit]

This article is in serious need of help, and should probably be re-written section-by-section. Quality and clarity is an issue, as well as consistency. There’s just too much for me alone to do. Please lend a hand and improve this article! 75.58.178.191 (talk) 06:30, 3 October 2009 (UTC)

I'll help. I had previously been editing the article, but got busy with some other stuff. But, I'm back. WhiteArcticWolf (talk) 14:06, 3 October 2009 (UTC)

Question on this article’s title[edit]

This article is currently titled “List of characters in Madagascar” even though it lists characters exclusive to both the movie’s sequel and “The Penguins of Madagascar” TV show. It states in its first sentence that the list is made up of characters that were in the films and the TV series, but my question is: Would it be more appropriate to move this article to something such as “List of characters in the Madagascar franchise” in order to be a little more accurate as to its contents? Or does its current title work fine? Sgt. R.K. Blue (talk) 06:24, 8 February 2010 (UTC)

Requested move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: page moved. The article includes all characters in the Madagascar (franchise) and as the new name only serves to match that of the parent article, this was an uncontroversial request. AussieLegend (talk) 11:49, 19 February 2010 (UTC)



List of characters in MadagascarList of characters in Madagascar (franchise)

"Madagascar" is highly ambiguous, rename to match parent article.

70.29.210.242 (talk) 08:12, 19 February 2010 (UTC)

  • Agree: Per my section “Question on this article's title” found directly above (posted on February 8), I would have to agree with the move proposal. Leaving it as is implies that the characters are only tied to the first “Madagascar” film, when in reality this list is also composed of characters found in the movie’s sequel and in “The Penguins of Madagascar” spin-off.

Regnal numeral of King Julien XIII[edit]

This has been taken care of now. The Mysterious El Willstro (talk) 03:49, 16 October 2013 (UTC)

Did the authors of the franchise give any hints as to who Kings Julien I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, VIII, IX, X, XI, and XII may have been? For that matter, did they mention any of his other predecessors? The Mysterious El Willstro (talk) 09:37, 20 February 2010 (UTC)

no, only a passing mentione in the madagascar version of "i like to move it move it" of his father being king as well. 69.115.204.217 (talk) 01:25, 15 May 2010 (UTC)
In that case, we don't have the necessary details to style him XIII. The Mysterious El Willstro (talk) 05:03, 3 August 2012 (UTC)

Lemurs[edit]

Lemurs are a Matriarchal society and as such have Queens not Kings. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ares1701 (talkcontribs) 00:45, 2 March 2010 (UTC)

What about talking, fictional lemur societies? --AussieLegend (talk) 03:05, 2 March 2010 (UTC)
Yeah. Since this is a film and tv show, anything can happen, since it is isn't reallife. Kommyboy16. 22:52, 19 March 2010 (UTC)
Well, you can't have everything. Why not just make a show about animals that can talk. Kids love those shows. Jak474 (talk) 17:55, 8 May 2017 (UTC)

Too detailed[edit]

Parts of this article (most notably the entries for the four main characters of the series) are FAR too detailed. It needs some serious overhaul to be more up to Wikipedia standards. Remember to list only the facts and important details about the characters, be brief and to the point, and remember that your own theories and opinions should not be included. Whoever wrote the entries for the new characters in the third movie did a good job. That's what the entire article should look like.

Surnames[edit]

Where are the sources for the surnames of the characters? Velociraptor888 11:15, 20 January 2013 (UTC)

Main characters[edit]

Can we agree that Gia, Vitaly, and Stefano should be added in the main characters section? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.38.59.79 (talk) 06:07, 12 October 2013 (UTC)

Well, we have to remember that they didn't appear until the 3rd movie. Cheers, Jak474 (talk) 23:47, 6 February 2017 (UTC)

Why did Mort swallow King Julien at the end[edit]

Why will that happened when Mort swallow King Julien at the end? It looks rather scary.
