Small Details From The ‘Madagascar’ Movies That Are Pretty Darn Wild

List RulesVote up the details you totally missed in the 'Madagascar' films.

The filmmakers who came up with a hypochondriac giraffe voiced by David Schwimmer and a kingly lemur voiced by Sacha Baren Cohen in the Madagscar movies paid attention not only to the hilarious menagerie on screen, but also to extra little creative details. In the original DreamWorks animated film Madagascar, followed by its sequels Madagascar: Escape 2 AfricaMadagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted, and the spinoff Penguins of Madagascar, the creators managed to sneak in a few almost-hidden details you probably missed.

Film fans with eagle eyes, however, noticed a few things you probably missed the first, second, or even third time around.
