* DrivesLikeCrazy: The Penguins, whether by land, air or sea. Of course animals can't drive, but the Penguins themselves seem to take delight in pulling this trope.

--> (Madagascar 3) '''Skipper:''' "No brakes?!" ''(Looks at Kowalski, who smiles and shrugs)'' "Well, way to commit, soldier!"

* ShownTheirWork:
** There's a scene where Melman sits in a hole in the ground and waits to die, with his will written in the sand. The commentary notes that someone went and researched it, so what was written in the sand was a legally binding will in the State of New York.
** Phil's sign language is genuine.
** The mountain range Alex exiles himself to is based on the Tsigny De Bamaraha national park, which is covered in razor sharp rocks.

Added DiffLines:

* DidDoTheResearch: All of Phil's sign language throughout the franchise is accurate, American Sign Language - Mason's interpretation isn't always perfect but it is suitably close enough to count.
** Melman's will in the sand in the first movie is an accurate, legal and binding will.
