After I popped this DVD in. my kids had a great time watching it. I love movies that could make my daughters laugh, it is like music to my ears. It starts off with a very curious penguin named Jasper. He was so interested to know what is on the iceberg. He and his younger brother, Junior, stumble upon Kakapo bird and Emma, the ship's captain's daughter. Together they go try to save the Kakapo bird's egg. It is a great kids flick to watch anytime especially this time of the year.
