"King Julien for a Day"

"Maurice at Peace" is the forty-second episode of season two from The Penguins of Madagascar.



While searching for cat videos on Alice's computer, a fax with catastrophic news is printed; Maurice, a zoo worker, has only 24 hours to live. Mason and Phil showed the fax to the penguins by mistakening the lemur Maurice for the zoo worker Maurice and stating that it says that he has a disease called "Ofu-Olosega", and they believed the monkeys out for themselves. In order to make Maurice's assumed final day more comfortable, the entire zoo bands together. Even King Julien pampers him. Maurice has no idea why everyone is so nice to him and relishes in all the attention. Meanwhile, the penguins hurry over to the florist shop for the Dendrobian Orchid, which could help Maurice. It took all night to get the flower and when they got back, they thought Maurice is gone. But Maurice was just sleeping and the animals hear that the zoo worker Maurice has 24 hours to live on the island of Ofu-Olosega. Later, Julien is tricked about taking care of Maurice and chases him down. Rico puts the flower on his doll and is set for the prom.


  • If you look at the title card you could see Maurice in his original, furry, dark, Madagascar self.
