    Marty the Zebra is celebrating his tenth birthday, but life in the zoo isn't 
    all it's cracked up to be. Tired of performing in the same show every day, 
    Marty craves the excitement and freedom of living in the wild. When some 
    crafty penguins help Marty escape from the zoo, his best friends, Alex the 
    lion, Melman the giraffe and Gloria the hippo set off to find him in what 
    turns out to be a bigger adventure than any of them expected.
