At the Central Park Zoo, Alex the lion, Marty the zebra, Gloria the hippo, and Melman the giraffe prepare for another day of visitors while the Penguins plan their escape. Marty, feeling down about being trapped in the zoo, daydreams about what life would be like on the outside. The other animals throw Marty a surprise birthday party, but when he shares his wish to go to the wild, they burst his bubble by telling him he’s crazy. After the animals leave, Alex sticks around to cheer up his buddy, and talk him out of leaving. Despite the pep talk, Marty escapes from the zoo. Alex, Gloria, and Melman scour the city in search of their friend. Once they are reunited, everyone tries to remain calm despite the commotion of the city and the threat of capture. Tranquilizer shots bring the adventure to an end and the animals fall asleep. When they awaken, the zoosters, Mason, a chimpanzee, and the Penguins are trapped in crates on a ship bound for Africa. The Penguins take control of the ship and steer wildly, causing the animals’ crates to fall overboard. Unaware, the Penguins set off for Antarctica. The Zoosters reunite on land, suspecting that they have been moved to the San Diego Zoo. After saving a lemur from the Foosa, catlike carnivorous creatures, the gang is welcomed to Madagascar by a herd of Lemurs and King Julien the 13th. As everyone gets acquainted, King Julien makes friends with the newcomers in hopes that the herd will continue to be protected from the Foosa. Meanwhile, the Penguins reach Antarctica but promptly turn around when they realize it is not the paradise they expected. When the Zoosters wake up the next day, it appears that Marty’s wish has come true. However, things take a turn when Alex’s natural instincts take over, and he leaves, worried that he might hurt his friends. The Penguins arrive with the ship, and Marty sneaks away to find Alex in Foosa territory. Alex warns Marty to go away, but Marty refuses. As the Foosa surround Marty, Alex hatches a plan and the others arrive just in time to help. They scare the Foosa away, and everyone celebrates.
