Adélie penguins engage in elaborate courtship behavior where the male builds a nest of pebbles to attract mates. Tough for [[UglyCute Hubie]], as he has no pebble with which to win the affections of the lovely Marina. After Hubie finds an emerald, his rival [[Creator/TimCurry Drake]] steals it from him and attempts to feed him to a Leopard Seal. Hubie escapes and winds up on a ship with the cranky Rockhopper, Rocko. Together, the two penguins return to their island home and settle things with Drake.

* LargeHam / EvilIsHammy: TimCurry as Drake, of course.

* Creator/TimCurry: Plays Drake. Despite the film's highly lukewarm reception, most people agree that he plays the villain nicely. Though he could probably do this kind of role in his sleep.

* TertiarySexualCharacteristics: Played straight. The women are given curvy figures and big eyelashes and pretty blue eyes. When Marina walks, she looks like she's wearing a dress. But the male protagonist is given eyes that are so sugar-coatedly girly and cutesy that with another voice actor he could probably pass as a woman.

** The reason for this was because that when Don Bluth and Gary Goldman walked off the movie, already all of the pencil art and 70% of the colouring was completed beforehand. At this, MGM sent the movie to an Hungary studio to hastily finish off the movie in time for its Theatrical release. [[EnhancedOnDVD Most of the errors were fixed for the 2007 2-Disc 'Family Fun Edition',]] where the movie was nominated for a Satelitte Award for Best Youth DVD.

** He's a penguin successor of [[Film/{{Legend 1985}} Darkness, another obvious villain played by Tim Curry]]. For bonus points, in their respective movies, both live in hellish-looking lairs, have names starting with 'D' fall for the lead female and don't take it well when she rejects them. However, it's quite telling that [[JerkJock Drake]] is a less subtle villain than the [[CardCarryingVillain Lord]] [[ObviouslyEvil of]] [[BigRedDevil Darkness]].

** Given his athletic build, long red cape, and his EvilTowerOfOminousness, he could also be a Ganandorf expy.

For bonus points they both live in hellish-looking lairs and fall for the lead female even though, surprisingly, the [[CardCarryingVillain Lord]] [[ObviouslyEvil of]] [[BigRedDevil Darkness]] from Legend is usually considered the more subtle villain.
