Madagascar (Hero Style) is a 2005 American computer-animated comedy film produced by Ragdoll Productions, BBC, Hit Entertainment and distributed by 20th Century Fox. It was directed by Andrew Davenport and Anne Wood (in Wood's feature directorial debut) and written by Gavin Nyenhuis, Caleb Jacobs, Bryleigh Dana, and Elliot Miller. The film stars Ben Small, Patty Wirtz, Rob Rackstraw, and Mirm Krigel, voicing a group of childhood characters from the Central Park Zoo who find themselves stranded on the island of Madagascar.


At the Central Park Zoo, BJ the dinosaur celebrates his tenth birthday but has grown bored with his daily routine and longs to experience the wild. BJ's best friend is Thomas the Tank Engine, who enjoys showing off for the public and his celebrity status as "the king of New York". Thomas attempts to cheer BJ up, but BJ, still unsatisfied, learns that the zoo's tender engines—Donald, Douglas, Gordon, and Edward—are trying to escape, and follows them out. Thomas, James the Red Engine, and Bear the brown bear pursue BJ and attempt to convince him to return. The four, along with the tender engines and two animals named Dewitt and Wince, converge at Grand Central Station where the authorities sedate them using tranquilizer guns. Under pressure from anti-captivity activists, the zoo is forced to ship the escaped animals by sea to a Kenyan wildlife preserve. During their travels, the tender engines escape and take over the ship, intent on taking it to Antarctica. Their antics on the bridge cause the crates containing Thomas, BJ, James, and Bear to fall overboard and wash ashore on Madagascar.

The animals come across a pack of lemurs led by Anthony Mullins XIII. The predatory fossa attack the lemurs, but are scared off by Alex's fearsome appearance. Alex blames Marty for the group's predicament and attempts to signal for help to get back to civilization. Marty finds the wild to be exactly what he was looking for, and Gloria and Melman soon join him in enjoying the island. Alex eventually comes around, but without the raw steaks he was provided at the zoo, hunger sets in and his prey drive begins to show. King Julien has the lemurs befriend the zoo animals in the hope that Alex's presence will keep the fossa at bay, despite his adviser Maurice's warnings about Alex's predatory nature. When Alex loses control and attacks Marty, Julien realizes that he is a threat and banishes him to the predator side of the island, where the fossa live. Seeing what has happened to Alex, and how dangerous the wild can be, Marty begins to regret his decision to leave the zoo.

The penguins, having found Antarctica to be inhospitable, land the ship at Madagascar. Seeing the chance to return Alex to New York, Marty crosses over to the predator side and attempts to convince the grizzled, starving Alex to return, but Alex refuses out of fear that he will attack Marty again. The fossa attack Marty, and though Gloria, Melman, and the penguins come to the rescue, they are outnumbered. Alex overcomes his predatory instincts, rescues his friends, and scares the fossa away from the lemur territory forever. The lemurs regain their respect for Alex, and the penguins satisfy his hunger by feeding him sushi. As the lemurs throw a farewell celebration for the foursome, the penguins decide not to break the news that the ship has run out of fuel.
