The Hoboken Surprise (2011)

Type :   Production countries :  


The penguins set off on a sailing trip to the Massachusetts coast, but poor weather abruptly tosses them onto the streets of Hoboken. There, the team is quickly noticed by humans, boxed, and brought to the feared Hoboken Zoo. But the sight that greets them there is not the wasteland they had expected; instead, the zoo is pristine. Soon, the team is greeted by friends and enemies Lulu, Hans, Savio, Clemson, and Rhonda who cheerfully welcome the penguins to Hoboken and tell them about Frances, a new zookeeper who has made their lives enjoyable, including by letting them use massage chairs. When Frances meets the penguins, she is equally as cheerful, though Skipper maintains that she is a "dark mastermind," even as his teammates begin to take a liking to Hoboken. The truth is finally revealed, however, when Frances puts Skipper down a chute into the ground, where he meets his teammates and the real Hoboken Zoo animals. Kowalski then explains that Frances had used the massage chairs to copy each animal into an android so as to have a clean zoo and be free of its "dirty" animals. Soon after, the real animals and the androids confront each other as a press conference to honor Frances' work is held by the parks commissioner. Shortly after the resulting damaged android of Skipper lands in his hands, he fires Frances, and the animal-android battle continues as the episode ends.

Special guest star: Megan Hilty as Frances Alberta
Note: This episode is a half-hour special. Nickelodeon promoted the special as "Operation: Vacation" in advertisements.
