"Our Man in Grrfurjiclestan" is the sixty episode of season two from The Penguins of Madagascar.


The penguins receive a video message from Buck Rockgut informing them that the Red Squirrel had somehow brainwashed one of them into being a sleeper agent, but he accidentally disconnects himself before revealing who it is. As various mishaps soon plague the penguins, they begin to suspect each other of being the forewarned saboteur. Skipper continually denies that possibility of a sleeper being among them, stating that if it were true, it would mean he failed as a leader. But as he takes a bite out of a fish sandwich, it explodes, causing the penguins to start accusing each other.

To end the madness, Kowalski traces Rockgut's video signal hoping to reestablish communication to discover the identity of the sleeper, finding that it had originated from a minor league baseball stadium over in Brooklyn. When the team travels there, they find Rockgut. The penguins reveal that they realize that none of the four of them is the sleeper agent and accuse him of faking the whole thing in retaliation for the penguins having sent him on a wild goose chance looking for Red in the nonexistent land of Grrfurjiclestan (pronounced "GUR-fer-JICK-al-STAN"). When Private questions how they figured it out, Kowalski explains that he and the other penguins had figured it out on the subway ride from Manhattan while Private was busy people-watching.

However, the Red Squirrel then shows up and it is revealed that Rockgut himself was Red's sleeper, all part of his plan to trap and destroy America's greatest penguin commandos. Rockgut is then ordered to take out the penguins with a T-shirt cannon. While taking cover, Kowalski realizes that the Red Squirrel can command Rockgut through simply snapping his fingers. Unfortunately, since they don't have fingers to snap, they try fighting but are no match for such firepower. However, the penguins manage to confuse Rockgut by wearing eye patches and imitating the Red Squirrel's voice (with Kowalski doing a perfect imitation), into thinking they were also Red Squirrels. And since Rockgut sees the Red Squirrel everywhere, he becomes overwhelmed and passes out. The real Red is then captured.

After that, Rockgut forgives the penguins about "Grrfurjiclestan" and is ready to capture Penguin Enemy Number 2, White Widow, the Albino Spider Monkey. Private says that White Widow is in "Newfakeplacesberg". Rockgut heads out and the penguins glare at Private.
