** In the third movie. {{Lampshaded}} with a ShoutOut to [[Disney/TheManyAdventuresOfWinnieThePooh another one]].


Added DiffLines:

** In the third movie, the circus performance is very trippy, with colorful flashing lights in front of a dark background, and animals flying around in all directions. It's hard to tell what is actually happening on-stage and what is just imagination.

Added DiffLines:

* AmbiguousTimePeriod: The level of technology seen throughout the series is kept rather low, while FreezeFrameBonus in the second movie seem to imply the present plot is set in the 80s, another one in the third movie implies the setting is present day. Confusing things further is ''Penguins of Madagascar'', which ditches the retro aesthetic entirely and displays futuristic looking technology.

''Madagascar'' is a successful 2005 [[AllCGICartoon computer-animated comedy]] produced by Creator/DreamWorksAnimation. The movie is about four friends -- Alex the Lion (voiced by Creator/BenStiller), Marty the Zebra (Creator/ChrisRock), Gloria the Hippo (Creator/JadaPinkettSmith) and Melman the giraffe (Creator/DavidSchwimmer) -- who live in New York's Central Park Zoo. Since they have lived their whole life in the zoo, they are unaware of what the wilderness is like or the fact that Alex is their natural predator (he believes the natural role of lions is to perform song-and-dance numbers). After they are shipped off to a wildlife reserve for escaping, they become shipwrecked on the coast of Madagascar. There they meet a society of lemurs and Alex's true nature as a carnivore starts to emerge.

* 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 2) '''Skipper:''' "When it comes to air travel, we know you have no choice whatsoever, but thanks again for choosing Penguin Air."
--> (Madagascar 3) '''Skipper:''' "No brakes?!" ''(Looks at Kowalski, who smiles and shrugs)'' "Well, way to commit, soldier!"

* BigDamnReunion: A parodied example. After being washed ashore, Alex and Marty are happily running towards each other in slow motion and to swelling music... until Alex's face turns menacing and Marty realizes he better U-turn and leg it.

* 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.
