"Zoo Tube" is the forty-third episode of season 1 from The Penguins of Madagascar.


After waiting alone for visitors to come to the zoo, Skipper finds the other penguins watching the "Dumb Animal Channel" Rico discovered on TV. Skipper takes a peak at it, and he soon gets addicted, too. Marlene appears and tells the penguins to come quick and there is a rumor going around than the zoo is closing forever.
