A Fun Look At A Trip Through Europe

(NAPSI)—Having just crossed Europe in their latest adventure, Alex the lion and Marty the zebra offer some expert travel advice for anyone planning to take in the sights of the Continent. And even if you’re not heading to Europe anytime soon, you can enjoy the Zoosters’ uproarious antics in “Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted” on Blu-ray™ and DVD.

Getting There

Alex: If I had to choose between car, train or plane travel, I’d choose the train, but that’s probably only because we had some, well, mishaps in the car and plane. In general, I recommend any mode of travel without a penguin or lemur on board. That said, a car can be a great way to get off the beaten path...but whatever you do, don’t let the zebra drive.

Marty: Planes, trains and automobiles will get you where you need to go, but they don’t even come close to being shot out of a cannon. It’s the only way to fly! I definitely recommend cannon if you’re in a hurry. Or a Candygram! Ooooh, I’m gonna try that next.

What to Pack

Alex: I personally like to travel light. Light and limber, that’s my motto. Of course, the obvious exception is hair conditioner. You can never carry too much hair conditioner, especially when a certain zebra has a habit of drinking it.

Marty: We made it halfway across Europe with nothing but our wits...I would not recommend it. I say pack everything because you never know how long it’s gonna be before you get back home. Trust me. And I always bring an extra bag so I have room for souvenirs...like those little bottles of shampoo—they’re delicious!

Blending In

Marty: You know what they say: “When in Rome.” I’m not really sure what that means, but when we were in Rome we barely made it out alive, so I should probably look it up. But drop me into an op art gallery and, baby, I can blend in! Wait, what does “blending in” mean again?

Alex: Well, I like to think that I blend in well wherever I go because lions have a natural gift for camouflage...as long as whatever I’m standing against is sort of tan colored. But if the people get a look at my face, it’s all over. They start screaming in adoration and then they start running away in adoration. It comes with the territory when you’re a superfamous lion.

Marty: Or any kind of lion, really.

Planning Ahead

Marty: Not knowing where you’ll be next is exciting. I mean, one day you’re being chased through the streets of Monte Carlo at 200 miles per hour and the next you’re being shot out of a cannon in the circus! What could be better than that?

Alex: How about...NOT being shot out of a cannon?

Best Part of Traveling

Alex: Seeing the sights, trying new food, escaping capture—they’re all fantastic. But sometimes the best thing about traveling is just being with your peeps.

Marty: You said it, pal. Those are some good marshmallows.
