While everyone gushes over Pixar and Disney, and it seems like there's a perpetual irony-boner for Despicable Me and The Minions, nobody seems to show love for the Madagascar franchise. It's a movie series which features penguins despite the fact that Benedict Cumberbatch is in the cast EVEN THOUGH HE SPECIFICALLY CAN'T SAY "PENGUIN."

But on top of all of that, it has one of the best running gags of any animated film (or regular film) in a long time - or should I say PUNNING gag? No, I shouldn't say that.
