Rico’s beloved doll, Miss Perky, has a new line of princess accessories! Joy! But in order for Skipper to reward the loco penguin with the new swag he must fill a marble jar (one marble in for good behavior, one marble out for bad.) How in the world is Rico supposed to behave and fill the jar when King Julien has kidnapped his dolly with the intention of marrying her? It’s the end of an era in news broadcasting when Chuck Charles is pushed aside as news anchor. He ends up a zoo worker, but he’s not cut out for that kind of labor – he can’t just shut off his hard-hitting newsman instincts. He’s miserable, that is, until he discovers the penguins are up to shenanigans. The scoop that could land him back at the anchor desk could expose our heroes unless they control the spin of this news ninja.
