* FunnyAneurysmMoment: When the gang first washes up on the island, Melman deduces that they have arrived in San Diego, and Alex laments having to compete with [[Ride/SeaWorld Shamu]] and his "smug little grin". Modern audiences who have seen Film/BlackFish would know Shamu is anything but smug.

A fourth skeleton was left behind in Madagascar hanging from a parachute trapped in a tree.
* UsefulNotes/AmericanAccents: The tourists in ''Escape 2 Africa'' all have New York accents.

* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Alex's parents do not appear and are not even mentioned in the third film.

* Groinattack: Poor Alex was kicked in the groin three times in the movie. First one, during the fight with old lady in Grand Central station. Second one, when he and his friend were surrounded by the police, he was kicked again by this brutal woman! Third one, on Madagascar, when he destroyed Melman's box, a piece of board strike his crotch (knocking Alex into the air and causing to stop and moan in pain once he landed).
