Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the second scene, you can see a man with a camera filming the penguins, but when one penguin says, "Smile and wave," the camera man has disappeared. (00:05:20)
Continuity mistake: The giraffe is being transported in a crate which says 'Giraffe' with an arrow pointing to it in order that people know which way is 'up'. This piece is later used as a makeshift headstone for the Giraffe's 'protest' grave on Madagascar. On this piece the arrow is now pointing away from the name towards the grave, in other words on the crate the word would now have been displayed upside down.
