"Can't Touch This" is the fifth episode of Season 2 from The Penguins of Madagascar.


When the penguins hear the scream of a child, they soon learn it was the result of a boy having been bitten by a sheep at the zoo’s petting zoo. Appalled by the sheep’s attack, the penguins set off at night to retaliate against him.

However, the sheep, Randy, soon tells the penguins that he was provoked to bite the boy because the boy had, among other things, beaten on him and had pulled out a clump of his wool. Convinced that they had wrongly judged Randy (except Private), the penguins decide to help him out to prevent further abuse by rowdy children.

When their attempts at applying a slippery polymer, building up static electricity on Randy’s wool, and hypnosis fail, the penguins decide to transport Randy to a farm to live out the rest of his life.

Randy is soon taken to a farm by the penguins in a truck, but shortly after his arrival, Randy is horrified at the appearance of the other sheep there, who are sheered and appear to be in a cult-like trance.

Consequently, Randy ends up back at the petting zoo, but when the same boy approaches him to attack him again, Randy kicks him away. It is then revealed that Skipper and Rico had taught Randy some of their commando fighting moves.
