One of my all-time favourite animated films is Madagascar. I watched it before we even had kids and loved it then as much as I do now when I watch it with the girls. I laugh out loud every time I watch it. I’m always so happy when sequels to movies like that are equally as well done and when a whole tv-series spin-off is created based on some of the funniest characters… AMAZING!
On Dec. 19 the first five episodes of All Hail King Julien, a totally original, totally hilarious and totally insane new series, arrived on Netflix. A favourite character from the Madagascar franchise, King Julien will take on the jungle’s craziest adventures in the new comedy series, along with his loyal sidekicks Maurice and Mort plus a whole new cast of colourful animals.
We had a chance to watch the shows before they were officially released and they are so well done. Sometimes I feel silly giggling at shows like this as a 32 year old but, in my opinion, that’s a children’s show well-done! DreamWorks knows we parents are watching the shows with our kidlets, so throw in some fun for the adults too, and we’re good to go.
To help celebrate this awesome new Netflix series, we were sent some All Hail King Julien goodies for a New Year’s Eve celebration. As we will be having a nice night in with out 4 year old and 2 year old, we’ll be enjoying some colourful animated kiddie comedy and a dinner in.
Check out this cute video to see what shenanigans King Julien has up his sleeve.
