Created by Swiss filmmaker Otmar Gutmann in 1986, Pingu is a claymation penguin and star of his own show. Many of you might know him as the little clay penguin that says "noot noot!" Fun fact: his show lasted for 6 seasons, what a success!

"Noot noot!"


Skipper, Rico, Kowalski and Private

Better known as The Penguins of Madagascar, these four mischievous little creatures thrive off of elaborated plans and we love them for it. You might know them from their appearances in DreamWorks' Madagascar trilogy, from their own movie, or even from their spin-off TV show.

"Smile and wave, boys. Smile and wave."



Known for being a supporting character in the second Toy Story film, Wheezy is a toy penguin with a heart of gold. We initially see him struggle with his sense of purpose since his squeaker is broken, but by the end of the film he gets a new one and we even get to see him sing!  

"I feel swell. In fact, I think I feel a song coming on!"
