"Cradle and All" is the twenty-forth episode of Season 2 from The Penguins of Madagascar.


Kowalski invents a device which predicts the unexpected. When he shows emotional indifference to a device-predicted fall of a child's ice cream, Private mutters "... detect this!" and chucks a fish at him, which Kowalski and Skipper dodge, but it hits Rico causing him to regurgitate a plunger which hits Frankie who falls onto a hot dog seller who pushes his cart which crashes into the Elephant Habitat and spills forks which Burt thinks is food and spits three of them out which slice the tire swing in the Gorilla Habitat which results in a baby stroller rolling out of the zoo. The penguins save it from the peril of traffic, then attempt to calm the baby by changing his diaper and giving him a stuffed penguin. But the stroller soon rolls into a demolition site where the baby gets out and has to be chased around to be reacquired by the penguins. The team eventually manages return the baby and his stroller back to his father without detection, though the stroller soon falls apart as a result of the whole ordeal.
