| Maurice is having trouble with his annoying king, and goes missing after fighting over a camera with Julien. Maurice disappears, but since his picture is showing on the camera, Julien thinks he's stuck in the camera, which he believes is a magic gift from the sky spirits, but the penguins think otherwise.

|4||1x04||"Operation: Plush & Cover"||March 30, 2009|
|When toy Mort plush dolls at the zoo gift shop become very popular, Julien is jealous and sabotages them by dropping the entire inventory of Mort dolls into the skunk habitat so they'll have to be returned to the factory. Unfortunately, the real Mort is taken too. The penguins have to save Mort before he gets shredded. Like the penguins, Julien mails himself to the factory, because he realized it was his fault that Mort was there in the first place, and together they have to save Mort. Mort is saved but Private is left behind by accident when a plush Private doll is mistaken for the real one.|
|5||1x05||"Happy King Julien Day!"||March 31, 2009|
|Julien announces that tomorrow is "King Julien Day". Maurice tries to get everyone to join in the celebrations, claiming that if they do not, Julien will "freak" on them, (meaning Julien will go insane and attack them physically or mentally). Despite a bribe with a piñata that Mort and Maurice had snatched from a rained out birthday party when no one was looking, Skipper refuses to celebrate, preferring to spend the day carrying out scheduled maintenance on the penguins' headquarters. The others go along with it only so they can get the candy from the piñata.|
|6||1x06||"Paternal Egg-Stinct"||April 1, 2009|
|Marlene finds an egg in her habitat and gives it to the penguins to hatch. Julien claims that the egg was his and names him Julien Junior (J.J.). When he says that he will raise the egg to be handsome, brilliant and humble like himself, Skipper agrees to hatch the egg. Private wants to care lovingly for it, unlike the other three, who put the egg in dangerous situations, such as obstacle courses and hang-gliding. Throughout, Julien attempts to take the egg for himself. It is later shown that the egg was a duck's and that the duckling inside had taken up Skipper's traits, with "Eggy", as Private calls him, saying to his siblings, "Cute and cuddly, boys, cute and cuddly", one of Skipper's well-known lines.|
|7||1x07||"Assault and Batteries"||April 2, 2009|
|Julien's noisy music annoys the animals so Skipper steals the batteries from his boom box. Julien fights with Skipper while trying to recover his batteries and both of them fall into a compound occupied by Joey, a foul-tempered kangaroo.

|8||1x08||"Penguiner Takes All"||April 6, 2009|
| Julien starts to mock Skipper when Skipper won't allow him to play "Capture the Flag". Skipper eventually agrees to play against Julien, who wins, taking the penguins' TV as a prize. In successive rematches, Julien continues winning until he has all of the penguins' possessions. After finally realizing that the lemurs travel by the tree-tops, rather than by land, Skipper challenges the lemurs to one more rematch, for all or nothing. The penguins win by flying (using jet pack's) and take all of the lemurs' possessions, including Julien's bouncing castle, Julien's crown, all of the penguins' possessions that the lemurs had taken in the previous matches, and Mort.
Absent: Alice, Marlene the otter, the chimpanzees

Mort finds himself waking up, touching the feet (twice, but screams and wakes up Julien on the second time) and is banished. Marlene brings Mort to the penguins to help Mort overcome his crazed obsession over King Julien's feet, making him "100% lemur foot-phobic" but, when Julien floats away in his chair, Mort has to save him by grabbing his feet. In return for this, Julien withdraws his decree and allows Mort to hug his feet only one time.
Note: This episode features the first appearances of Bada and Bing, the zoo's gorillas.
|10||1x10||"Tangled in the Web"||April 8, 2009|
| The penguins don't like the new webcams that have been installed around the zoo and rebel, but Julien plays to the cameras, because he wants to be voted most popular animal. When Private accidentally slips and falls into the fish bowl he becomes incredibly popular and is taken away to entertain his fans on stage. Julien's attempts to become more popular result in Mort being flipped onto Private's stage, destroying it. All of the cameras are knocked down, with one ending up pointing into the zoo kitchen, where Alice is dancing while using a banana as a microphone. Private is rescued but the ultimate winner is Alice, who is voted most popular because of her kitchen antics.
Absent: the chimpanzees.
|11||1x11||"Crown Fools"||April 9, 2009|
| While trying to prove he can have fun on "Fun Day", Skipper causes Julien's crown to fall into the sewer, making Julien scream for hours. After a visit from an angry Maurice, the penguins set out to retrieve the crown. Meanwhile, Marlene trys to keep Julien calm, while he mourns for his cherished, missing crown. When the penguins find the crown, Skipper has to fight a giant rat for its return. When the crown is returned to Julien, he finds a smudge on it and calls for his spare crown. Furious, Marlene makes Rico regurgitate a crowbar so that she can beat up Julien.
Absent: the chimpanzees, Alice.
|12||1x12||"The Hidden"||April 18, 2009|
|Marlene and Mort visit the new neighbors at the zoo to welcome them but the new neighbors take Mort. Meanwhile, Kowalski is having problems because he thinks out everything too much, never acting on instinct. Marlene reports Mort's disappearance to the penguins who set off to rescue Mort. They find that Julien and Maurice are also present in the new neighbors' enclosure. One by one, the animals disappear, leaving only Kowalski to rescue them all. Kowalski captures two of the hostiles, who turn out to be friendly chameleons.|
|13||1x13||"Kingdom Come"||April 18, 2009|
|The penguins think they hear a hyena, which turns out to be Julien, who is being taken to the hospital, leaving the emurs without a king. Skipper convinces Maurice to be king, until Julien returns, but Maurice insists that "Julien will always be our one and only king". Maurice goes crazy after eating Julien's lychee nuts, demanding the loyalty of all of the animals in the zoo. After initially thinking this is just a joke, Skipper realizes that he is serious and formulates a plan to wrest control from Maurice after he shuts down the power and water to the zoo habitats, but get captured in the process. After fighting Maurice's two gorilla bodyguards, Bada and Bing, in an unsuccessful attempt to wrest control from Maurice, the penguins seek out Julien at the hospital. They find that Julien was sent crazy by bad nuts but a guava juice given to him counteracted the effects of the nuts. With Julien, the penguins try to regain control by spraying Maurice with an aerosolized version of the drink. Julien is knocked out before he can spray Maurice but Mort manages to spray him and save the day. After Maurice recovers, the lemurs play cards with the penguins, while Mort eats some of the bad nuts and his eyes turn red.|
|14||1x14||"All Choked Up"||April 24, 2009|
|Alice unveils a robotic zoo guide that the penguins immediately see and process as a threat. Assuming that they will be replaced by robotic animals, Skipper tries to get Rico to regurgitate a weapon that they can use to destroy the robotic guide. Rico eventually regurgitates a time bomb that Skipper then activates. Meanwhile, Alice has noticed that Rico is regurgitating constantly and heads toward the penguin enclosure. When the penguins see Alice coming toward them, they hide everything that Rico regurgitated, with the exception of the activated bomb, which Rico then swallows. Alice forces Rico to drink a strange liquid that keeps him from regurgitating and the penguins must try to get him to regurgitate the bomb before it explodes. After numerous failed attempts, including hooking a rope to their miniature car and taking Rico for a ride around a lamppost, a gory nature documentary, making Rico drink a bucket of "#12", and even forcing Mort down Rico's throat, the penguins give up and say their goodbyes. But Rico (as seen in the beginning) has a "gooey love mush sensitivity", so the penguin's sweet words make Rico vomit. Rico then finally regurgitates Mort and the bomb. Mort is uninjured but the bomb lands in the robotic zookeeper's hands, and explodes, destroying the robot.|
|15||1x15||"Little Zoo Coupe"||April 24, 2009|
|Julien is bored and when he sees the penguins driving around in their car he wants to drive it. Skipper refuses and so Julien tries to get his own car. After Maurice proves to be a poor substitute for a real car, the lemurs steal Alice's electric zoo cart, which is much bigger than the penguins' car. Julien challenges the penguins to a race around the zoo, with the winner taking both cars. The penguins can't win with the car in its "girly state", so they customize it, making it faster and adding a flame design on its body. Just as the penguins are about to cross the finish line, Phil the chimpanzee throws a banana peel onto the track, causing the penguins' car to spin out, allowing Julien to win. Julien's car also crashes but he revels in the fact that he has won and now has the penguins' car. The penguins have the last laugh as their anti-lemur ejection seat launches Julien into the sky.|
|16||1x16||"Popcorn Panic"||May 9, 2009|
| The animals are successful at getting their favorite snack of popcorn from zoo visitors until Alice catches a boy tossing a piece of popcorn to Marlene. Alice then yells at the boy and slaps signs reading “Do not feed the animals” around the zoo, preventing the animals from obtaining the treat. The animals assemble to determine how to get popcorn on their own, but the penguins and lemurs don’t want to work together. The penguins then raid the zoo storage facility, the lemurs following behind, resulting in two bags of popcorn being taken between them. But when they get back to the zoovenir shop, they realize that they have unpopped popcorn, and Julien believes that the “popcorn eggs” need to be hatched under their warm bottoms. When Alice finds a trail of popcorn leading to the penguin habitat, Private helps Skipper hide the bag in the incinerator, and it soon pops, filling up and then bursting from the penguin habitat. Skipper and Private land in Marlene's habitat and Marlene congratulates them on their job "sort of" well done. Julien thinks the salty snack gods gifted him with it as a reward for helping to "hatch" the "eggs". At the end, lying on a popcorn pile with the other penguins, Skipper declares that he is "pretty darn sick of popcorn."
Note: This episode was originally released direct-to-DVD on February 6, 2009 as part of the Double DVD Pack of Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa. It was aired in other countries before being aired in the U.S. on May 9, 2009.
|17||1x17||"Go Fish"||May 30, 2009|
|The penguins perform and display their cuteness to zoo visitors in order to prompt them to feed them with fish purchased from Alice. Julien observes this from his habitat, stating his resentment of the fish odor to the other lemurs. When the zoo visitors feed the penguins, the penguins soon notice that they are not being fed their regular fish, but rather fish-shaped cake imitations. While Julien revels in not having to smell the fish, the penguins find the new cakes to be terrible in taste and hope that the substitution is just a one-time trial. When they are fed the fish cakes the next day, however, they assemble to plan a mission to obtain real fish on their own from a fish delivery truck as it travels down the road, which includes using Pinky the Flamingo for aerial support. When Julien observes the penguins preparing for their mission, he tells the other lemurs that the real fish cannot be allowed back into his kingdom. The penguins put their plan into action and obtain several crates of fish from the delivery truck, but when they return to the zoo, Julien tells them that he secretly switched the crates of fish with crates of the fish cakes. Julien and Skipper then engage in a series of attempts to one-up each other in terms of who last switched the crates around. But when both sets of crates are opened in an attempt to settle the disagreement, both contain the fish cakes. Kowalski then says that he has a theory on where the real fish ended up, and it is revealed that Pinky had taken them.|
|18||1x18||"Miracle On Ice"||May 30, 2009|
|The penguins freeze their habitat so they can play a hockey game against each other. They are then challenged by a group of rats (the same rats featured in Crown Fools) to play against them, since the rats cannot go back into their sewer home because the pipes burst. Having been led to believe that the rats were not experienced in the game of hockey, the penguins agree to the game, agreeing also that the ice would then belong to the winner. The rats, however, intended to lead the penguins to believe that they were not good hockey players, but really are and win the hockey game, claiming the penguins’ ice. After the loss, the penguins begin practicing their skills on the lemurs' ice, but Julien won't let them practice unless he is on the team. They recruit him as a cheerleader, as well as Maurice and Mort. After improving their skills, the penguins replay the rats, and start out with the upper hand, but the rats then start to play rough. They send Private flying into the porcupine's exhibit, taking him out of the game. He is replaced by Maurice, who plays horribly. The leader rat smashes into Kowalski, who begins to speak gibberish, such as "The Moo Cow may have a chocolate marshmallow," or "Flibbity jibbit, man, I'm as juxtaposed as the next hamburger," which takes him out of the game, too. He is replaced by Mort, who is even worse than Maurice. Then, leader rat whacks Skipper with the hockey stick that he is using, taking Skipper out of the game. Finally, Julien goes into the game. When one of the rats skates over his foot, he becomes extremely enraged because someone has touched his royal feet, and starts whacking pucks everywhere, until the rats surrender. The penguins then cheer for Julien, the hero of the game.|
|19||1x19||"Needle Point"||June 6, 2009|
| Skipper runs from the zoo veterinarian in order to avoid getting a shot. The penguins try to force him to do it, but Skipper seems to escape and avoid all they throw at him. Private rips off Skipper's hospital ankle bracelet by accident. When the penguins give in, Private has an idea. Private says that he could pretend to be Skipper and get it all over with, and he wants to take the risk of getting another shot. Private waddles over to Alice, who is searching for Skipper, with Skipper's hospital ankle bracelet on, and she takes him to the veterinarian. When the chimps inform Skipper a second shot could make Private become sick, or worse, he goes back to the veterinarian's office, and tells Private that he'll take the shot. He is given the shot and screams in pain but is proud about it afterwards. At the end, Alice tells the penguins they have an appointment with the dentist, and shows Kowalski has an extreme fear of the dentist. Private states, "But we don't have teeth."
Note: Marlene , Mort, Maurice, and King Julien have no lines. Julien however is shown once.
|20||1x20||"Eclipsed"||June 6, 2009|
| Mason and Phil are fed up with the lemurs annoying them. They find out a solar eclipse is coming and tricked Julien by telling him the "sky spirits" are angry at him just as the moon covers the sun. Julien promises to be nice to everyone just as the solar eclipse ends. The penguins are then annoyed with the lemurs being nice. They figure out Mason and Phil tricked Julien. Skipper distracts Julien while Kowalski, Rico and Private make a laser that shoots lightning pointed to the sky and hooked to the bell on top of the entrance building. They make the time on the clock move faster making the bell ring and shooting lightning in the sky. The lightning strikes Skipper who survived it (but it was aimed to shoot Julien so he would be his normal self) and Julien decides to be himself anyway. The episode ends with Julien, Maurice and Mort annoying the chimps once again.
Note: This is the first mention of Dr. Blowhole.
|21||1x21||"Mort Unbound"||June 26, 2009|
|Mort quadruples in size after an accident with one of Kowalski's inventions, a super-ray designed to enhance fish. After Kowalski invented it, Julien was throwing fruit away, and threw a mango into the gorilla habitat. Mort gets it, but gets bounced out, into the penguins' HQ, right smack in the beam of the super-ray, when it was started and quadruples in size and beats the gorillas and gets the mango and other fruits. After finally realizing that Mort is super strong, Julien uses him to steal food from the other animals, like stealing an elephant's peanuts and Joey's (from Assault and Batteries) hay for Julien's art work. When Mort wants to eat a banana that had been among the stolen loot, Julien denies him access to it. After being fed up with constantly being mistreated, Mort uses his new-found strength to take advantage of Julien by eating as much loot as he wants and hugging Julien's feet. Kowalski prepares a medicinal antidote for Mort to reverse the effects of the super-ray, but Mort refuses to take it. When Mort uses Julien as a bat and Private as a ball to get rid of him when he tries to give Mort the medicine, Private becomes the second accident with the super-ray when he lands on it. A large, muscular Private then is able to force Mort to take the medicine and return to normal. Julien confronts Mort with a lesson, but Maurice said that Julien used Mort to bully the zoo animals. Julien doesn't want to admit it, but does when Private was about to sit on him. However, when it is Private's turn to take the medicine, he refuses it, as he enjoyed being big. Then, Rico says, "Oh boy."|
|22||1x22||"Roomies"||June 26, 2009|
|Marlene is getting a new roommate. Before her roommate arrives, she dances with Skipper with excitement, but Skipper is paranoid that Marlene's roommate may be a spy, possibly with the intent of stealing Kowalski's newest invention, a device whose function is not yet known. The penguins point out to Marlene that the new arrival weighs at least 1,500 pounds, enormously heavier than she is, and suggest that multitudes of otters might be on the way. The new roommate turns out to be a walrus named Rhonda, who is sloppy, has bad manners, bullies Marlene and uses her as a live tissue. She also farts in the water constantly as well as in Marlene's home. After faking her approval to the penguins several times, Marlene finally asks them to ship her somewhere else. But when she learns that a labeling error resulted in Rhonda being headed for a polar bear reserve in Alaska, her guilty conscience causes her to save the annoying roommate. Marlene ends up using Kowalski's invention, which turns out to be a plasma cutter, to free the crate at the dock where Rhonda is being shipped out. Once the crate gets back to the zoo, Marlene and the penguins arrange for Rhonda to be transferred to the Hoboken Aquarium (which does not actually exist). Rhonda ends up being a spy after all, and she steals Kowalski’s plasma cutter and discusses it with Dr. Blowhole, Skipper's unseen dolphin arch-enemy, en route to the new aquarium.|
|23||1x23||"Misfortune Cookie"||August 1, 2009|
|The zoo animals order Chinese food. All of the penguins read their fortune cookies and are happy with the results. However, Rico's fortune reads "You will soon meet a foul end". While Rico and the penguins do not believe in curses, Julien tries to make them believe by tricking Rico into believing that he is cursed (by making an elephant land on Rico and sending a popcorn cart in his direction) to the point where Rico hides in a pillow fortress. Skipper then confronts Julien and they agree to make Rico think that he is not cursed by going through with an ancient lemur ceremony. After that, a duck lands on Rico, who sees the foul end of the duck: its bottom.|
|24||1x24||"Lemur See, Lemur Do"||August 1, 2009|
|A lemur robot called the LEM-R (an acronym for "life-emulating robot") is sent to the lemur habitat so it can learn from Julien before it heads to Mars, which makes Mort jealous. The penguins want to teach the robot skills it really needs for its mission to Mars so they kidnap it, but during training, it accidentally explodes, making Julien depressed and Mort happy. (Maurice tries to get Mort to cuddle Julien's feet) Filled with remorse, the penguins rebuild it and the robot is sent to Mars. However, upon arriving on Mars, the robot is eaten by a martian making Mort excited, while Skipper points out a lemur shouldn't have been sent to do a penguin's job.|
|25||1x25||"Roger Dodger"||August 17, 2009|
| Roger the alligator (whom the penguins had previously met in the episode "Haunted Habitat") comes up to the penguins’ HQ when The Rat King and his minions invade Roger’s home and throw him out. Roger tells the penguins that he had tried being nice to the rats, including making muffins for them, but his efforts were not successful and that he is not comfortable with being aggressive to get his home back. Soon after Roger tries again to be nice to the rats and again gets beaten up by them, the penguins decide to help Roger confront the rats. When training Roger fails to be a viable option, Kowalski rigs up a contraption with a blender to switch Roger and Rico’s brains (not a physical transfer, but one done through the aid of the contraption) so that Rico, inside Roger’s body, could take care of the rats. Unfortunately, after defeating the rats, “Rico” begins to go on a rampage, tearing apart the zoo and the vicinity thereof. (Kowalski attributes this to the differential between an alligator’s cold blood and a penguin’s warm blood. The penguins and “Roger” then try to stop “Rico,” who is eventually brought down when “Roger” sings, in a Jack Haley-style singing voice. At the end of the episode, once Roger and Rico had assumed their proper bodies again, Roger conducts the penguins in singing a lullaby.
Absent: The chimpanzees, the lemurs, Alice
|26||1x26||"Skorca!"||August 17, 2009|
| While alone on aerial recon duty one night, Private sees a flying orca. He alerts all of the zoo animals to the presence of the predator, which Julien dubs a "skorca", a contraction of "sky orca". While the penguins set off to track down the skorca, Julien engages the services of Joey the kangaroo to eliminate the threat. After discovering that Private consumed an entire box of "Winkys" during his patrol the penguins believe the skorca sighting was a hallucination resulting from a sugar high. They change their minds when they see the skorca, which is actually just a large parade balloon. During a fight with Joey for the privilege of destroying the skorca, when Private popped the balloon it flew away and took Private with it. Believing he is dead, the penguins held a memorial service for Private but he returns during the service with part of the skorca and is treated as a hero.
Note: Mort doesn't have any lines in this episode
|27||1x27||"Otter Gone Wild"||August 18, 2009|
| After cleaning their habitat in record time, the penguins head out to obtain snow cones as a reward. They invite Marlene who initially accepts but panics after finding out that the snow cone stand is outside the zoo, as she was born in captivity. However, when Skipper reassures her that she’ll be safe with the penguins being with her the whole time, Marlene agrees to go. Julien decides to join the group without an invitation. Once outside the zoo, Marlene is overwhelmed by the outside world and goes crazy. She kidnaps Julien and becomes amorous with him. The penguins eventually rescue Julien and trap Marlene in a cage before getting their snow cones and returning to the zoo where Marlene returns to normal.
Absent: The chimpanzees, Mort, Maurice, Alice
|28||1x28||"Cat's Cradle"||August 19, 2009|
|The penguins try to hide their cat friend, Max (who had appeared in the "Launchtime" episode), from an animal control officer. After running away from the animal control officer, Max asks the penguins to help him hide. The penguins hide him in Julien's bounce house, but he is found shortly after. When the penguins run out of ideas, Phil and Mason suggest that Max pretend to be a red Rhodesian slasher, an “ultra-rare, incredibly vicious wildcat,” which is coming to the zoo. They agree, and paint Max red. When the animal control officer comes, he thinks Max is the red Rhodesian slasher. But after celebrating, Max accidentally rubs some of the paint off, which the animal control officer sees. He is saved from capture by Alice, who instead puts him in a cage with a female red Rhodesian slasher, hoping that the two will mate. After getting beaten up by the female, Max begs the penguins to help him, so the penguins create a diversion for the officer by using Mort to resemble a rabid Chihuahua. But when Max gets out of the cage, the animal control officer goes after him. However, when the animal control officer catches the cat, it turns out to be the female slasher instead, which Rico had painted to resemble Max. After the female slasher beats up the animal control officer, Mort then sets off all of the traps outside of the zoo so Max can escape.|
|29||1x29||"Monkey Love"||August 20, 2009|
|A delivery truck brings a female chimpanzee named Lulu from the Hoboken Zoo (which does not actually exist) to the chimpanzee habitat while her habitat is being fixed. Thus, she will only be staying there for a few days. While Phil and Mason are greeting her, Phil falls in love with her and asks Mason (in sign language) to help him win her heart. Since Mason does not know how to help, they go to Marlene for advice, which she finds exciting, and she suggests trying “candles, moonlight, … Spanish guitar … and a bouquet of oysters on half-shells arranged to spell-out her name.” When Mason says, "I'm not sure that's how to capture a chimp's heart," the penguins suddenly burst in at the word "capture.” Marlene complains that this is "her mission," but Kowalski explains that the use of the word "capture" automatically makes it a penguin mission. The penguins decide that they need the help of a man on the inside, so Mason is chosen to speak to Lulu for Phil. However, this backfires, with Lulu thinking it was Mason that wanted to go out with her and not Phil. The penguins then come up with a new plan to dress up as Desperado so that Phil can pretend to fight them and beat them. (Kowalski, however, dresses up as a pirate by mistake.) When this happens, Lulu reveals that she is actually tough and beats up the penguins herself. The penguins eventually use a crate of bananas to drop on Lulu with Phil to push her out of the way as another attempt at matchmaking, but this backfires as well, with the rope not cutting late due to Kowalski calculating the scenario with cotton rope and using nylon rope instead. Phil pushes Lulu out of the way and she gets angry with him. Next, they used Love Potion Number 37, but after telling them that there's flamingo sweat and garlic in there, Pinky and the other flamingos chased Phil to be preened after he puts it on. Then Julien comes up with Phil doing roller disco so that Lulu would join him. She does, but then is accidentally flung into heavy objects and being beaten by dogs after Julien accidentally said "dogs" but not "doves". She then locks herself in her crate. Phil then decides to just speak his true feelings to her via sign language, which Lulu understands most of, but does get the last part, which Mason then translates for her. Phil and Lulu then fall in love and walk away together.|
|30||1x30||"Tagged"||August 21, 2009|
|The climate in the zoo is very cold and King Julien, Marlene, and the other animals in the zoo are somewhat having problems with the weather. Skipper and the other penguins have heat lamps on in the fashion of tanning beds. They are relaxing and enjoying by playing volleyball. Their quiet day is then interrupted when Alice brings in a doctor of science who wants to study the penguins. The penguins then turn off their heat lamps and put away everything they have, including the heat lamps and volleyball net. Alice allows the doctor to study penguins, but is strangely hit by the penguins' volleyball. The doctor sits down and Skipper starts to calm down considering that he can not last long because of the weather, but the scientist turns on a heat lamp. Skipper can't take the elements and instructs the penguins to set up fake copies of themselves while they head out to change everything. Skipper increases the steam output of the furnace which also goes to Marlene, Julien and every other animal's habitat. They head back, but Skipper is spotted by Alice and fail the operation after a cooling line is installed. Alice cages the penguins and puts radio-controls on them. The penguins decide they have to face the doctor until he leaves by engaging in strange poses of mating, much to their dislike. Skipper realizes the zoo will blow up in two hours, but he is still radio-tagged. He eventually decides to get some help. He grabs a slingshot and fires a radio to the lemurs' habitat. While Julien, Maurice, and Mort are relaxing, they retrieve the radio and Skipper starts to give Julien instructions on how to save the zoo. Kowalski then tells Julien that they have to press a scarlet button, but all the buttons turn out to be red. Mort then touches one, but the furnace begins to explode and traps with fire are set up. Julien finally decides to get through the traps and saves the zoo after getting blown out of their plastic volcano. The animals celebrate over Julien's victory while the doctor returns and shows his audience his findings, which shows the penguins engaging in various high-fives.|
|31||1x31||"What Goes Around"||September 19, 2009|
| At closing time, the penguins hear a little girl crying that she has lost her doll, Private goofingly thinking Skipper was crying. Skipper quickly informs Private that is not him. The penguins try to throw it to her, but this backfires when the doll hits the girl and bounces into the sewer, making the girl cry. After Alice is asked to retrieve the doll, she finds the job incredibly annoying, and does nothing except file the missing toy report after the girl and her mother leave Alice’s office. The penguins then decide to take up the mission themselves, with the idea of using Rico's doll as look-alike, which makes Rico upset. After delivering Rico's disguised doll to the girl's home, security cameras spot the penguins and animal control is called. After walking into a trap which uses sardines, Officer X (whom the penguins met in "Cat's Cradle") tries to take the “punks” with him, but after using Rico to regurgitate dynamite, the penguins escape to the sewer. However, Officer X's “steel psycho-mobile” has laser-drilling capabilities, allowing him to break into the sewer. After X gains the upper hand and lassos them, the penguins try to cause a sewage pipe to spray sewage on X. While the pipe is initially clogged with the doll that the girl had originally lost, sewage soon comes out and gets all over X. Skipper then gives the doll to Rico. After returning home with Rico wooing the doll, the penguins watch a news report showing X being arrested on TV for a “vandalism spree over several city blocks.”

| After the penguins discover him in an underground bunker, Skipper's idol, Buck Rockgut, commands them to help him capture his arch-enemy, The Red Squirrel. Rockgut imprisons Mort, King Julien and Maurice, Burt, Marlene, and the chimps (because of a tail like the squirrel's, lying, liking nuts like the squirrel, liking drawings of red squirrels, and because they "read" a good book, respectively). It's then up to Private to set things right. He enlists Fred the Squirrel to impersonate The Red Squirrel. The others penguins capture "The Red Squirrel" in a box, and when he thinks they aren't looking, Private lets Fred go and thanks him for his help, but the Penguins are looking and question Private. After Rockgut accuses Private of being The Red Squirrel in a costume, Kowalski realizes it and points out that it's nonsense, followed by Rockgut accusing Kowalski. The others finally come to their senses. Rico coughs up a payphone, which Skipper pretends to answer, telling Rockgut that HQ called, informing him that The Red Squirrel he had been chasing was a decoy and that the real one was in "Ger...fur... jickle... stan..." tricking Rockgut into leaving. Private says he feels bad for Rockgut because he wasted 47 years looking for an enemy that probably doesn't even exist. But after they leave, it is revealed that The Red Squirrel is hiding in a bush watching with a periscope. He then runs toward a door, but crashes into it, saying "stupid eye patch" just like Fred did when he crashed into a tree earlier.

Skipper is then seen in front of the flooded Statue of Liberty, calling Kowalski a "maniac" (a quote from Planet of the Apes).

Convinced that they had wrongly judged Randy, the penguins decide to help him out to prevent further abuse by rowdy children. When their attempts at applying a slippery polymer, building up static electricity on Randy's wool, and hypnosis fail, the penguins decide to transport Randy to a farm to live out the rest of his life. Randy is soon taken to a farm by the penguins in a truck, but shortly after his arrival, Randy is horrified at the appearance of the other sheep there, who are sheered and appear to be in a cult-like trance.

As requested by Eggy's mother, the penguins agree to work with Eggy to convince him that he is not suited to engage in their para-military operations. But when he persists in desiring to become a commando, Skipper leads Eggy to believe that he needs to have a "Penguin Commando License" in order to partake in their operations, and that being able to tackle all the zoo has to offer is requisite for obtaining such. Although briefly successful, this plan soon backfires when Eggy begins to take down all the zoo animals, using the specialized characteristics of each of the penguins that he had learned from them while still in the egg state. Eventually, Julien is the last animal that Eggy had not yet beaten, and thus the only thing standing between him and his "license." But Julien, upon learning that "[his] J.J."

Private decides to take on the Amarillo Kid in another round of mini golf only after the armadillo sets the penguins' HQ to self destruct and locks-down the rest of the zoo. When Private's game-wining putt comes a mere fraction of an inch from going into the hole, the Amarillo Kid celebrates his long-awaited defeat of Mr. Tux. But Private's ball then rolls in, giving him the victory, with an assist by an insect Private had avoided hitting earlier while driving the penguins' car.|

|Private desires a promotion after Skipper forbids him to look at a joke contained in a classified mission file. Skipper agrees to such a promotion, but only if Private can pass a one-on-one survival test against "the most fearsome beast in the concrete jungle" on the streets of New York, where he is soon taken. Left alone in an alley, Private is passed a cassette player by the other penguins containing audio instructions on how to outwit this enemy. However, Private's test is soon interrupted by the arrival of the lemurs, who believe they are on a camping trip and consistently get in the way of Private trying to follow the tape's directive. Eventually, Kowalski reveals the specificity of the enemy Private must confront through song: an evil, ghostly city bus notorious for making roadkill out of animals known as the "Graveyard Eight." In order to pass his test, Private must confront the bus and bring back a souvenir from it. This inevitable confrontation occurs when the bus comes by while the lemurs are "sewer fishing" and entangles their fishing lines in its bumper, taking them with it as Private races to catch up. Julien soon gets himself free, but goes inside the bus with Private to look for something sharp to free the others, which Private accomplishes with the name badge of the driver, a short, elderly woman with a deep, demonic voice. For his successful encounter with the Graveyard Eight, Private is promoted to Private First Class. He is finally able to read the joke, but in the end, he doesn't quite understand it.|

|61||2x13||"Field Tripped"||September 4, 2010|
| After securing pretzels from a pretzel cart, the penguins notice that a boy on a school field trip had observed their operation, and believe him to be composing a dossier on them. Rather than take immediate action against him, Skipper instead wants to focus on the boy's "spy master," and they soon discover a museum brochure which has an exhibit on Madagascar, further adding to Skipper's suspicions on the boy. Julien then comes by and notices that his "royal booty scratcher" was in the photo of the museum display and requests the penguins get it back for him. When they turn him down, Julien assembles a ragtag "team" of his own to do the mission instead, with Mort taking on the role Skipper would for the penguins, Fred for Kowalski, Maurice for Rico, and Julien himself for Private. Meanwhile, the penguins observe the boy, Ronald, telling his teacher about having seen their operations, but the teacher rejects his account. Shortly after, the school group leaves for the museum. At the museum, the lemur-led group pursues Julien's booty scratcher and the penguins attempt to get ahold of Ronald's notebook, leading him to again tell his teacher about being pursued by the zoo penguins. The penguins ultimately fail to obtain Ronald's notebook before the children leave the museum, in part because they got Julien's scratcher for him, but they successfully use a brainwashing helmet on the teacher after she reads Ronald's report.

|62||2x14||"Badger Pride"||September 4, 2010|
|After a camouflage exercise accidentally knocks Marlene outside the zoo's confines, where she goes feral until brought back into the zoo (similar to the episode "Otter Gone Wild"), Private discovers that a new badger exhibit is open. Private is terrified of the thought of ferocious badgers, but Marlene drags him to the exhibit to help him deal with his fear. The two badgers, named Becky and Stacy, turn out to be earnest and fun-loving who are thrilled to meet their "cousin" Marlene (another member of the Mustelidae family) and the adorable penguin. The four participate in a full day of fun and spontaneous activities. As the night falls, Private concludes that the badgers aren't so scary after all, but Marlene becomes annoyed with them when they continue to pester her into ever more late-night activities and then into agreeing to activities the next day. She soon snaps, telling them to stop "badgering" her. The hyperactive badgers take this as an insult becoming mad and threatening at their new friend. Marlene tries to tell them that she is just too tired to play anymore "silly games", but it only makes the situation worse. She begs the penguins to help her and has her habitat rigged with security traps. Unfortunately, the badgers were in Marlene's den before the traps were ever set and begin to chase her all over the zoo. Skipper, Kowalski, and Rico pursue, while Private claims he has "something else planned". The penguins are outsmarted and outmaneuvered by the badgers, but Private manages to make a surprise attack using the same camouflage tactic from earlier and knocks them (and Marlene, by accident) out of the zoo, and into the park. Marlene's outdoor instincts kick in again, roughing up Becky and Stacy while the penguins decide to stay out of the "family matter". The next day, the penguins have a nice picnic outside the zoo with the badger twins, who decide to forgive and forget yesterday's mishap (at the mercy of the "wild" Marlene).|

Having been denied the usage of dynamite in the destruction of the files earlier, Rico greatly enjoys his work, even after the other penguins come over to investigate the blast. Julien then desires more things blown up, but when Skipper warns of the consequences of an uncontrolled, wild Rico, Julien and Rico agree not to continue. However, the two soon act to the contrary and engage in a montage of blowing things up. Eventually, dynamite-happy Rico reaches his breaking point due to all the "psychotic pressure" built up inside him in consequence to his frenzy of creating explosions, and he begins to use his own body as a walking wrecking ball. To protect the zoo from Rico's destruction, the penguins and the lemurs trap Rico underneath Julien's bounce house, which Kowalski believes will serve as an "ideal lunacy absorber." The plan works, and soon Rico falls asleep, tired out by his "48 hours of uncontrolled mayhem."|
|64||2x16||"The Helmet"||September 11, 2010|
| Kowalski has invented a helmet that turns thoughts into actions, essentially granting the wearer the power of psychokinesis, which he dubs "the Helmet." While the penguins are playing with its power, King Julien notices it and becomes incredibly jealous. Late that night, Julien steals it and claims it as a crown to use its power for himself. Now with unparalleled powers, King Julien fires Maurice, now no longer needing his services since the Helmet now provides everything he needs, and continues to abuse the Helmet's power for himself. However, upon setting its power to 10 (the highest), Julien's thoughts and words become reality and cause chaos in the zoo until it eventually creates a tornado of telekinetic objects. In the end, however, the penguins separate the helmet from King Julien's head, ending the telekinetic madness (but at the same time burning off all his head hair) and Maurice returns to serve King Julien by giving him his old crown back to hide his baldness.

Fearing for him, Private brings the koala back to the HQ, where Kowalski explains that koalas are nocturnal and Leonard himself awakens from his slumber as night approaches. While there, Leonard is accidentally launched from the now-overhauled HQ evacuation system and touches down in Midtown, provoking the penguins to set out to find him and bring him back to the zoo. Soon after locating him, however, their situation becomes more difficult when Leonard falls asleep in the daylight.

The snake, Savio, is continuously suspected to be behind these disappearances, but every time he is accused there is no proof to show that he got out of his habitat. Trying to prove that Savio is the culprit, The penguins and King Julien disguise Private as a monkey, as Savio has only eaten the smaller mammals in the zoo. However, while the gang is distracted by a hose that resembles Savio being carried by zookeeper Alice, Private disappears, too. The penguins and King Julien finally confront Savio and discover that he has been escaping from his habitat by unlocking the security latch with his long body through an air vent. Now freed, Savio chases after the gang and eventually swallows King Julien. After using several unsuccessful tactics, the penguins finally trap Savio inside Burt's habitat, whom, thanks to his enormous size, proceeds to mercilessly beat Savio until the snake finally spews out the missing animals, including Private and Julien.

Meanwhile, the penguins find an orchid which could be a cure, but every attempt to get into the flower shop fails. The penguins then demolish the flower shop and retrieve the orchid. Back at the zoo, the penguins find Maurice sleeping, but presume him to be dead. However, in the end it's revealed that the message was just a junk fax to another Maurice, a zookeeper, and the 'Ophuolosaiga' was really a holiday destination. Julien, furious from catering Maurice's every need, proceeds to chase him away, throwing walnuts at him.|

|After zoo visitors are not impressed enough with the penguins' display of cuteness to toss them fish, Kowalski uses a machine to gauge the cuteness levels of Rico and Private. When intentionally posed in a certain fashion, Private registers at 132 percent, a level capable of knocking out the others. The team later begins to use Private's cuteness-knockout skill to their advantage, but Private later refuses to employ it after many trivial usages ordered by Skipper. When the penguins are caught outside their habitat and caged, still Private resists using his cuteness as a weapon, even when the team is scheduled to be shipped to Copenhagen, Denmark, where Skipper fears returning. When Private tries to flee, the others chase after him, with all four moving their cages about like hamster balls, which zoo visitors find cute. In response to the visitors' protests, Alice lets the penguins stay in New York.|

Roger, meanwhile, begins to get in the penguins' way, and the team begins to regret their relocation operation. Eventually, the lemurs are returned to their original habitat after Julien climbs about the Vesuvius twins, believing them to be bringing him snacks.

Once Savio arrives, however, he gets past the animals' defenses and it is revealed that Julien had confused Savio with Fred. Savio soon cages the group, less Julien who runs off, and plans to consume them one by one so that the others will have to watch their friends be eaten. Savio is defeated, however, when Julien accidentally spills some butter flavoring, allowing him to slip from Savio's clutches, rendering the snake too slippery to move as he wishes, and allowing the others to slip through the cage's bars.

|When Kowalski's ray designed to freshen spoiled food accidentally hits Skipper before falling down a storm drain, the leader is turned into a baby penguin, albeit retaining much of adult Skipper's personality. While the other penguins attempt to retrieve the ray, the down-feathered Skipper is baby-sat by Julien, under the story that he is "Petey", the penguins' cousin, much to Skipper's displeasure. After the other penguins find that the ray is in the possession of the sewer rats, they are captured by them. Sensing his team is in danger, baby Skipper slips past a sleeping Julien and enters the sewers, ultimately defeating the Rat King through quick-thinking leadership – and a flatulent emission.

|While building a ship in a bottle, the penguins learn from Phil and Mason that their model is of a Norwegian fishing vessel which sunk 100 years ago in the New York Bay with a catch of brined herring. The team then sets off to locate the actual wreck via submarine and succeeds in yielding a crate of century-old fish, which Skipper, Kowalski, and Private rapidly consume the contents of as Rico struggles and fails to get to eat some himself. Unfortunately for the three fish-eaters, the herring induces a 24-hour fish-craving psychotic state, which threatens to become permanent if any further fish is consumed before the condition wears off. Rico then works to prevent his teammates from eating any more fish. After preventing them from robbing a delivery truck, Rico gets the penguins to eat a fish-shaped restaurant sign, which takes them all night to chomp through. Rico is then rewarded with a smoked Alaskan salmon by his team back home.|

However, Red soon appears; Nigel fights him and Private disarms his plant life-destroying missile before Red escapes. Later, at the HQ, the other penguins do not believe it when Private tells of taking on Red, and Nigel denies any confrontation took place.

There, the team is quickly noticed by humans, boxed, and brought to the feared Hoboken Zoo. But the sight that greets them there is not the wasteland they had expected; instead, the zoo is pristine. Soon, the team is greeted by Lulu, Hans, Savio, Clemson, and Rhonda – all but Lulu former enemies – who cheerfully welcome the penguins to Hoboken and tell them about Frances, a new zookeeper who has made their lives enjoyable, including by letting them use massage chairs. When Frances meets the penguins, she is equally as cheerful, though Skipper maintains that she is a "dark mastermind," even as his teammates begin to take a liking to Hoboken. The truth is finally revealed, however, when Frances puts Skipper down a chute into the ground, where he meets his teammates and the real Hoboken Zoo animals. Kowalski then explains that Frances had used the massage chairs to copy each animal into an android so as to have a clean zoo and be free of its "dirty" animals. Soon after, the real animals and the androids confront each other as a press conference to honor Frances' work is held by the parks commissioner. Shortly after the resulting damaged android of Skipper lands in his hands, he fires Frances, and the animal-android battle continues as the episode ends.

Their version of play involves placing the two through uncomfortable scenarios for their amusement, including trying to make them fight each other, which Skipper refuses to engage in but Julien goes along with because of his fascination with the shiny objects the twins reward him with. When Maurice, Mort, and the other penguins attempt to rescue Skipper and Julien, all are subjected to the twins' "circus of pain" until they manage to free themselves after Maurice convinces Julien that he is merely the twins' pet, Julien's discarded objects giving Skipper the tools he needs to escape, culminating in them giving the twins a taste of their own medicine.|
|101||2x53||"Byte-Sized"||September 24, 2011|
|Kowalski unveils his latest invention: "nanites," tiny robots which are capable of operating any mechanical object, thus freeing the penguins of time spent on chores. Skipper initially fears the nanites will become another of Kowalski's disastrous inventions, but changes his mind after Kowalski demonstrates that the nanites are programmed to not allow any harm to come to a penguin. Unfortunately, the programming has the unintended consequence of the nanites becoming overprotective, first by inhibiting the team's rescue of Barry the poison-dart frog when his tongue is caught in the cotton candy machine- although they are able to outmaneouvre the nanites and save Barry anyway- and later by containing them in their HQ. The nanites fight back against the penguins' attempts to shut them down by assembling a large robotic form from various pieces of technology around the zoo, but are unstoppable until Kowalski is injured after his attempt to hit the robot with an EMP causes it to fall on top of him, with the nanites then self-terminating because they had violated their penguin non-harm protocol.|

However, their good deed is offset when Rico flings away the leaves inside a bucket and the object accidentally hits Mason, injuring his back. To remedy the new situation, the penguins must first satisfy Julien's request in order to arrange for Maurice to massage Mason, with effectuating Julien's desire creating the need to satisfy numerous other favors, and later having to speedily deliver the pizzas of a knocked-out delivery boy.|

The five then pursue this professor and then realize their error.

After Julien gains possession of it and inadvertently stops and then restarts time, Kowalski attempts to get the stopwatch back, but the timepiece ultimately winds up irreparably broken, permanently trapping the two in a moment of time. Though initially frustrated by what Julien had caused, Kowalski soon uses the sudden eternity to partake in buddy activities with Julien and create 7,009 inventions. But when Julien mentions that he had placed a piece of gum inside the stopwatch to dispose of it earlier when its flavor ran out, Kowalski removes it from the device and the unit becomes operational, easily undoing the time freeze.|

To end the madness, Kowalski traces Rockgut's video signal hoping to reestablish communication, finding that it had originated from a Brooklyn baseball stadium. When the team travels there, they find Rockgut, who had faked the whole thing in retaliation for the penguins having sent him on a wild goose chase looking for Red in the nonexistent land of Grrfurjiclestan. However, the Red Squirrel then shows up and it is revealed that Rockgut himself was Red's sleeper. Rockgut is then ordered to take out the penguins with a T-shirt cannon, but the penguins manage to confuse him, by wearing eye patches, into thinking they were also Red Squirrels.

To liven Kowalski's spirits, Private suggests that he, Skipper, and Rico attend Invexpo instead; Skipper reluctantly agrees, finding the event surprisingly fun.

But later, when he notices a space squid landing and the rest of the team unaware, he gets Marlene's attention to assist.

With the S.T.A.N.K.'s core approaching meltdown, Kowalski and Maurice return to the zoo to try to figure out how to safely free Julien without the bomb detonating. It is ultimately determined that sodium chloride will short out the lock on the restraints, and that tears would be an effective solution.

Private has no memory of the incident, but wishes to make things right; his efforts result in accidentally crushing Dale twice more. Later, Dale gains access to Kowalski's Nextoskeleton and wishes to exact poetic justice: to step on Private the same way he had been stepped on with the suit. But when Private points out that the suit belonged to Kowalski, Dale realizes he was in error and holds Private blameless, then uses the Nextoskeleton to pursue Kowalski instead.
