Suggested correction: Just because it appears dry on the surface doesn't mean there isn't water between the slats of wood making it drip.

Continuity mistake: When Alex tries to get Melman out, he is lying near the sea, but when Alex tries to get him out with the tree, he is farther away from the sea.

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.

Factual error: In the sequence where the animals get on the first subway, it says they are on the 59th St subway. But, there is no 59th St subway in NY. The only subway station close to 59 is the 57th St subway.

Suggested correction: While the other correction lists a 59th street, that's in Brooklyn. There is one in Manhattan though, 59th - Columbus Circle, which is also the south-west corner of Central Park.

Trivia: There is a scene when the lemurs are showing a book called "To Serve Lemur". This is similar to one of the classic episodes of The Twilight Zone, "To Serve Man" when the "aliens" allegedly come in peace but actually want to eat the people of earth.

Question: How did Marty free himself from the animal box after falling into the ocean? This obviously happened before the scene where he was surfing on dolphins, but it is never shown nor mentioned how he managed to get out of this box.

Answer: It is entirely possible his box hit something in the water and broke or was weakened enough for Marty to escape.
