Nick’s ‘Penguins of Madagascar’ Wins Another Emmy


Nickelodeon’s popular animated series Penguins of Madagascar took home the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Children’s Animated Program on Saturday (June 23). The National Academy of TV Arts & Sciences event took place at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. The show is produced by multiple-Emmy-winning animation veterans Mark McCorkle and Bob Schooley, whose many credits include Kim Possible and Buzz Lightyear of Star Command. The spinoff of DreamWorks’ Madagascar movies, the CG-animated show first premiered on Nick in November of 2008.

Penguins beat Nick’s Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness, SpongeBob SquarePants, PBS’ Curious George, Sid the Science Kid and APT’s Peep & The Big Wide World. Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash was the winner in the Outstanding Performance in a Children’s Series for his work on Sesame Street.
