On January 10th, Paramount Home Entertainment releases Operation Blowhole, the latest DVD from the Penguins of Madagascar. There’s a lot of content on the DVD, not all of it the Penguins of Madagascar series, but you’ve really got to navigate around the disc a lot to find it.
The three central episodes centre around Dr. Blowhole, the evil dolphin nemesis of the Penguin commando team. Dr. Blowhole, voiced by Neil Patrick Harris, is a lot of fun. Like an evil dolphin super-villain version of Doogie Howser. But again, as always, the penguins work best in small doses, and three back-to-back-to-back episodes of them fighting a dolphin is no small dose. It’s a big dose. I like Dr. Blowhole, and I like the multiple musical numbers they throw in here, but one at a time, please.
On the Operation Blowhole DVD, there are a lot of extra episodes, of this show and others. That’s good, because some of those Blowhole episodes have appeared on other DVDs before. There’s a total of 73 minutes of content on this DVD, some of which is a bit tough to find. But it provides some good variety, and the kids should really enjoy all of it.
