Based on the much-loved Dreamworks Animation, the story follows four New York City Zoo animals who leave their comfortable lives to end up in the middle of Madagascar.

Going through a bit of a mid-life crisis, Marty the zebra wishes that he could be out in the wild. After meeting a bunch of crazy penguins who also want to escape from the zoo, Marty follows them and breaks free. Discovering that their friend has gone, Alex the lion, Melman the "hypocon-giraffe" and Gloria the hippo, go on a mission to find him and bring him back to the zoo.
