Head over to Netflix, sit back, relax and enjoy the show that Robert Lloyd of the Los Angeles Times says “Delivers on all the important accounts… Style, script, timing and performance.” Maybe even pick up a few new dance moves while you enjoy the wild and crazy antics of the King and meet Timo, Madagascar’s resident scientist and newest member of the tribe.
A prickly, sarcastic tenrec (similar to a hedgehog) who conducts experiments and builds things out of the various junk that washes up on shore, Timo is also Julien’s go-to “tech guy” — though as far as Julien is concerned, Timo is a wizard who uses his “science-magic” to fix anything. Timo is voiced by David Krumholtz ( This is the End and TV’s “The Good Wife”).
In these new episodes, King Julien gets everyone hooked on caffeine, tries to automate life on Madagascar (to disastrous effects), embarrasses Maurice, misrepresents the truth and generally brings chaos wherever he goes — all while managing, unintentionally, to stay one step ahead of an always-imminent uprising. As always, when his silliness puts his colony in danger, his heart rises to the occasion to save the day. It’s a riot of color ─ and a laugh riot ─ when viewers All Hail King Julien!
