PENGUINS OF MADAGASCAR is an animated film for children in which four penguins team up with an elite interspecies undercover task force in order to thwart the plans of a wicked scientist.

Threat

Scenes of very mild threat include one in which the four heroes are chased across the deck of a wrecked ship by several large leopard seals with big teeth. The penguins soon make their escape and any sense of threat, which is moderated by comedy, is quickly dispelled.

Violence

There is very mild slapstick violence throughout, including characters being hit by penguin flippers and octopus tentacles, or zapped by a ray gun or scientific devices. In one scene several octopuses are comically run over by an ice cream van.

Language

Very mild bad language includes a single use of the term 'butt'. Other terms include 'blast', 'crikey', 'flippin', 'heck' and 'tush'.

Other issues include very mild innuendo and word play. For example, in one scene a penguin says to another, "We were never mates. There was no mating", and in another scene a character, referring to an organisation called The North Wind, says, "No-one breaks The Wind".
