Someone's got a zoo loose.

Alex the lion is the king of the urban jungle, the main attraction at New York’s Central Park Zoo. He and his best friends—Marty the zebra, Melman the giraffe and Gloria the hippo—have spent their whole lives in blissful captivity before an admiring public and with regular meals provided for them. Not content to leave well enough alone, Marty lets his curiosity get the better of him and makes his escape—with the help of some prodigious penguins—to explore the world.

Germany German (Deutsch)

Der eingebildete Löwe Alex, das vorlaute Zebra Marty, die ständig panische Giraffe Melman und die divenhafte Nilpferd-Dame Gloria sind die absoluten Stars im Zoo des New Yorker Central-Park. Doch Marty ist traurig: Zu sehr beschäftigt ihn der Gedanke an die Freiheit. Und als er eines Tages zufällig hinter den Fluchtversuch einiger Pinguine kommt, ist er kurz darauf verschwunden. Als sich alle vier Freunde nach einer tierisch rasanten Flucht durch das New Yorker U-Bahn-Netz, in Kisten verpackt auf einem Schiff wiederfinden, sind sie Martys Wunsch "Zurück in die Wildnis" unfreiwillig näher, als sie glauben: Vor der Küste der Insel Madagascar gehen sie erst über Bord, um gestrandet aus erster Hand zu erfahren, wie sich das wilde, neue Leben anfühlt.

France French (Français)

Lorsqu'un lion, un zèbre, une girafe, un hippopotame et une poignée de pingouins psychotiques fuient leur zoo new-yorkais pour secourir l'un des leurs, l'aventure s'écrit avec un grand A. Et lorsque le destin les réunit sur l'île de Madagascar, ils doivent apprendre en formation accélérée les rudiments de la vie à l'air libre.

Italy Italian (Italiano)

Un leone, una giraffa, una zebra e un ippopotamo decidono di scappare dallo zoo di New York per girare un po' il mondo, ai loro occhi sconosciuto, ma durante la loro fuga, un gruppo di animalisti li cattura e li spedisce nel loro habitat naturale in Madagascar. I quattro però, non abituati a vivere liberi, non si ambientano tanto facilmente...
