However, since Julien sees Maurice's photo on the camera's display, he incorrectly assumes that Maurice became trapped inside the camera for failure to obey Julien's orders. The penguins do not believe this allegation, and instead set out to investigate what really happened, eventually locating Maurice at a New Jersey dump. Although he is initially delighted to be away from Julien, after the penguins' antics in trying to get him home, Maurice is relieved to be back in Julien's kingdom.

They launch a rocket to reach their desired destination but, unbeknownst to them, wind up on a rooftop across from the zoo instead of on the lunar surface. There, they meet a stray cat who they believe to be a "moon cat" who takes kindly to the foursome with an ulterior motive to eat them, though he later befriends them for real when given a gift of canned fish. After leaving the "moon," however, the penguins realize they had never left Earth. Meanwhile, Julien and the other lemurs deal with the booby traps in the penguin's habitat while trying to "borrow" their TV.

However, shortly after the penguins' departure Marlene screams again, prompting them to reinvestigate. In the course of the investigation, Skipper and Marlene are knocked into the sewer underneath Marlene's habitat, where they soon uncover the true origin of the noise: an alligator named Roger who had made the noises in reaction to Marlene's snoring.

They find out he went crazy from eating bad lychee nuts which release an enzyme that increases aggression in the brain, but a guava juice milkshake counteracts the effects. With Julien, the penguins try to regain control by spraying Maurice with an aerosol version of the drink. Julien is knocked out before he can spray Maurice but Mort manages to spray him.

During the race the lemurs keep sending obstacles to slow the penguins down, but they evade them and pull ahead when Rico "beans up". Just as they're about to win, Phil throws a banana peel onto the track causing the car to spin out, allowing Julien to win.

Alice forces Rico to drink medicine that keeps him from regurgitating and the penguins try to get him to regurgitate the bomb before it explodes. After numerous failed attempts including: a ride around a lamppost, watching a gory nature documentary, drinking a bucket of "#12", and even forcing Mort down Rico's throat, the penguins give up and say their goodbyes. But Rico (as seen in the beginning) has a "gooey love mush sensitivity", so the penguins' farewell words make Rico regurgitate Mort and the bomb.

The animals assemble to determine how to get popcorn on their own, but the penguins and lemurs don’t want to work together. The penguins and lemurs each get their own bag of popcorn from zoo storage. When they get back to the zoovenir shop, they find kernels instead. Julien believes they are "popcorn eggs" that need to be hatched. The penguins try interrogating a kernel, but Alice finds a trail of them leading to their habitat. Private and Skipper hide the bag in the incinerator, causing a popcorn explosion. They land in Marlene's habitat and she congratulates them on their job well done. Meanwhile Julien thinks he has been rewarded by the salty snack gods.

The penguins put their plan into action and obtain several crates of fish from the delivery truck, but when they return to the zoo, Julien tells them that he secretly switched the crates of fish with crates of fish cakes.

After the loss, the penguins begin practicing on the lemurs' ice, but Julien won't let them practice unless he is on the team. They recruit the lemurs as cheerleaders. After improving, the penguins replay the rats, and start out with the upper hand, but the rats start to play rough. They send Private flying into the porcupine exhibit, body slam Kowalski, and put Skipper in a cast. They're forced to use the lemurs are replacements.

However, Skipper reassures her that she’ll be safe with the penguins and Marlene agrees to go. Julien also joins the group without an invitation. Once outside the zoo, Marlene is overwhelmed by the outside world and goes wild. She kidnaps Julien and becomes amorous with him. The penguins manage to find them, but Marlene then carries Julien to the top of Cleopatra's Needle, where the penguins fight her using radio controlled planes. The penguins eventually rescue Julien and trap Marlene in a cage before getting their snow cones and returning to the zoo where Marlene returns to normal.

They then use Max's scent in Joey's habitat so Joey could take out X, but the reverse happens. Phil and Mason suggest that Max pretend to be a "red Rhodesian slasher," an "ultra-rare, incredibly vicious wildcat," which is coming to the zoo. Officer X at first falls for Max's disguise, but Max accidentally blows his cover while dancing in triumph. He is saved from capture by Alice, who puts him in a cage to mate with a female red Rhodesian slasher. After getting beaten up by the female during the courtship ritual, Max begs for help, so the penguins create a diversion for Officer X by disguising Mort as a rabid Chihuahua. Max escapes, but Officer X catches him, but it turns out to be the female slasher Rico had painted to resemble Max.

While a baffled Kowalski tries rationalizing that such a simple thing defies all laws of the universe, Skipper doesn't care and tells Kowalski to invent something that won't destroy the world. Private suggests a snowcone machine, so Kowalski builds it, only to result in covering the world in snowcone substance some time later. Skipper is then seen in front of the flooded Statue of Liberty, calling Kowalski a "maniac" (a quote from Planet of the Apes). The others appear and Kowalski tells Skipper, "Yeah, but you gotta admit, these are good snowcones!"

They try hiding him as a display in a museum next, but Roger blows his cover by becoming "alive" when a boy pokes him. Following this, the penguins try to hide Roger on a rooftop as a gargoyle, but Roger, afraid of heights, soon falls into a public pool below.

But as they leave, Skipper believes that the agents have done an inadequate job, so he and the other penguins take it upon themselves to ensure the zoo is safe for the commissioner's arrival to cut the ribbon on a new children's zoo. In doing so, they soon uncover that a pigeon, Frankie, has plotted to "drop one" on the commissioner's suit in retaliation for his implementation of anti-pigeon park regulations. Skipper then tells the other penguins about how he had failed to act under similar circumstances when the previous commissioner had been attacked with bird droppings containing blueberries, vowing to not let the same happen again. The penguins then chase after Frankie, with Skipper flying through the air using a jet-pack, but the pigeon soon ends up releasing his blueberry-infused vendetta. Skipper dives in and takes the hit for the commissioner, and his team is horrified at the resulting look of their leader. Fortunately, however, Skipper reveals that he was wearing a "pigeon-proof vest" as he pulls it off his body.

However, the sheep, Randy, soon tells the penguins that he was provoked to bite the boy because the boy had, among other things, beaten on him and had pulled out a clump of his wool. Convinced that they had wrongly judged Randy, the penguins decide to help him out to prevent further abuse by rowdy children. When their attempts at applying a slippery polymer, building up static electricity on Randy's wool, and hypnosis fail, the penguins decide to transport Randy to a farm to live out the rest of his life. Randy is soon taken to a farm by the penguins in a truck, but shortly after his arrival, Randy is horrified at the appearance of the other sheep there, who are sheered and appear to be in a cult-like trance. Consequently, Randy ends up back at the petting zoo, but when the same boy approaches him to attack him again, Randy kicks him away.

As requested by Eggy's mother, the penguins agree to work with Eggy to convince him that he is not suited to engage in their para-military operations. But when he persists in desiring to become a commando, Skipper leads Eggy to believe that he needs to have a "Penguin Commando License" in order to partake in their operations, and that being able to tackle all the zoo has to offer is requisite for obtaining such. Although briefly successful, this plan soon backfires when Eggy begins to take down all the zoo animals, using the specialized characteristics of each of the penguins that he had learned from them while still in the egg state. Eventually, Julien is the last animal that Eggy had not yet beaten, and thus the only thing standing between him and his "license." But Julien, upon learning that "[his] J.J."

However, matters become complicated for the zoo gang along the way when the rats catch up to them and carry away Marlene in a failed attempt to gain possession of the key to the treasure. Later, the group displays symptoms of infighting when they confront their individual depraved desires for what could be done with the treasure once claimed, a curse forewarned by a mysterious, elderly squirrel who had stated prior that the treasure had to be destroyed. Eventually, after having gotten ahold of the key, the rats locate the treasure, but the gang soon catches up to them. Following a little more fighting amongst the group, it is revealed that Julien, as the "pure-hearted one" among them, is immune to the treasure's curse, and he proceeds to dispose of the treasure.

The two badgers, named Becky and Stacy, seem to be earnest and fun-loving and are thrilled to meet their "cousin" Marlene (another member of the Mustelidae family) and the adorable penguin. The four participate in a full day of fun and spontaneous activities. When night falls, Private concludes that the badgers aren't so scary after all, but Marlene becomes annoyed with them when they continue to pester her into ever more late-night activities and agreeing to activities the next day. She soon snaps, telling them to stop "badgering" her. The hyperactive badgers take this as an insult becoming angry at their new friend. Marlene tries to tell them that she is just too tired to play anymore "silly games", but it only makes them aggressive. She begs the penguins to help her and has her habitat rigged with security traps. Unfortunately, the badgers were in Marlene's den before the traps were laid and begin to chase her all over the zoo. Skipper, Kowalski, and Rico pursue, while Private claims he has "something else planned". The penguins are outsmarted and outmaneuvered by the badgers, but Private manages to make a surprise attack using the same camouflage tactic from earlier and knocks them (and Marlene, by accident) out of the zoo, and into the park.

Kowalski tricks Rico into believing that the doll loves him just the way he is and removes the voice chip, leaving Rico happy again. </td></tr> <tr class="vevent" style="text-align: center; background:#F2F2F2"><td id="ep70">70</td><td>2x22</td> <td class="summary" style="text-align: left;">"Huffin and Puffin"[19] </td><td>October 9, 2010 (2010-10-09)</td><td id="pc126">126</td></tr><tr><td class="description" style="border-bottom:3px solid #fbec5d" colspan="5"> While engaged in a training maneuver with the other penguins, Skipper is suddenly accosted by an old foe, a Danish puffin named Hans. Hans states that he has come to make peace with Skipper for past injustices, but Skipper refuses to accept the puffin's apologies. Eventually, widely due to the pressure of the other penguins and Marlene, Skipper offers Hans his "flipper in friendship," but the group is soon tied-up by Hans via an "exploding rope bomb" – the whole apology act was a sham. Hans soon brings the group to Julien's plastic volcano to trap them, but the penguins soon escape, leaving Marlene alone. After a chase, Hans locks himself in the penguins' HQ and begins eying their weapons cache. Eventually, after the penguins' failed attempt to steam Hans out of the HQ, Hans and Skipper meet up and fight using fish as swords. Held at fishpoint, Hans begins to cry, stating that he has no home and that his takeover of the HQ was mainly so he could have a place to live. Skipper then arranges to ship Hans to the Hoboken Zoo, a place he describes as a "disease-riddled cesspool." </td></tr> <tr class="vevent" style="text-align: center; background:#F2F2F2"><td id="ep71">71</td><td>2x23</td> <td class="summary" style="text-align: left;">"Invention Intervention"[20] </td><td>October 16, 2010 (2010-10-16)</td><td id="pc"></td></tr><tr><td class="description" style="border-bottom:3px solid #fbec5d" colspan="5"> Despite Skipper forbidding him to invent, Kowalski defies him and constructs an invisibility ray. While testing it in the park, the device itself is accidentally turned invisible when Fred falls on it; shortly, it also gets loose on the streets of New York because of Julien's meddling, firing its laser randomly and rendering objects in the city invisible. The four penguins soon go on a mission to stop the device, Skipper believing Dr. Blowhole is behind the mayhem. The team manages to ram the unseen ray with a bus and Kowalski successfully defuses the device following a resulting overload. Objects once invisible, including the ray itself, become visible again. Kowalski keeps trying to say that the ray was his, but Skipper keeps interrupting Kowalski and still believes it was Blowhole's technology. </td></tr> <tr class="vevent" style="text-align: center; background:#F2F2F2"><td id="ep72">72</td><td>2x24</td> <td class="summary" style="text-align: left;">"Cradle and All"[20] </td><td>October 16, 2010 (2010-10-16)</td><td id="pc"></td></tr><tr><td class="description" style="border-bottom:3px solid #fbec5d" colspan="5"> Kowalski invents a device which predicts the unexpected. When he shows emotional indifference to a device-predicted fall of a child's ice cream, Private mutters "... detect this!" and chucks a fish at him, which Kowalski dodges, but it sets in motion a chain reaction, resulting in a baby stroller rolling out of the zoo. The penguins save it from the peril of traffic, then attempt to calm the baby by changing his diaper and giving him a stuffed penguin. But the stroller soon rolls into a demolition site where the baby gets out and has to be chased around to be reacquired by the penguins. The team eventually manages return the baby and his stroller back to his father without detection, though the stroller soon falls apart as a result of the whole ordeal. </td></tr> <tr class="vevent" style="text-align: center; background:#F2F2F2"><td id="ep73">73</td><td>2x25</td> <td class="summary" style="text-align: left;">"Driven to the Brink"[21] </td><td>October 23, 2010 (2010-10-23)</td><td id="pc210">210</td></tr><tr><td class="description" style="border-bottom:3px solid #fbec5d" colspan="5"> After Private and Kowalski fail to impress Skipper during a combat-driving training course, Rico manages to impress him with his wreckless driving ability. But after being told not to take the car out at night, Rico disobeys orders and takes it out for a spin and unfortunately wrecks it. He hastily tries to rebuild it, using one of Kowalski's latest inventions, The "Neurotronic laser targetting system." Rico feels guilty for what he's done to the car, meanwhile the automobile soon begins to act "haunted" as it attempts to vengefully run down Rico repeatedly. The penguins soon catch and they attempt to stop the car from hurting Rico. After the car knocks Skipper unconscious, Rico finally gains the courage to save Skipper and destroy the car with a bomb. After the car is destroyed, the Penguins notice Kowalski's targetting system was placed inside and thus Rico admits that he disobeyed orders when he took the car out at night. The Penguins however let him off the hook since Rico had gone through enough punishment when the car was "haunted."

Upon failing to master a yo-yo, King Julien soon finds out that Mort's attention is now focused on his new video game rather than Julien's feet and feels neglected as a result. Elsewhere, Kowalski's new invention, the "Psychotron," a device that reads people's thoughts, breaks, and he must find a new circuit board to power it back up again. After King Julien unintentionally tells him about Mort's video game, Kowalski and King Julien work together to get its circuit board by tricking Mort into drinking gallons of lemonade so as to go to the bathroom and leave the device unattended. When this inevitability occurs, Kowalski takes the circuit board and leaves Mort with just Julien's feet, but Mort instead becomes miserable now that his video game no longer works. Kowalski begins to feel guilty for what he has done to Mort, and after telling this to his teammates, feels their scorn as well. Realizing he has done the wrong thing, Kowalski plans to return the board to Mort, but the Psychotron breaks again. Later that night, the penguins and King Julien break into a toy store and find a new video game of the same kind Mort had before. However, the next day, everyone finds out that Mort has found a new plaything that Maurice had given him in an attempt to calm him down: a cell phone. </td></tr> <tr class="vevent" style="text-align: center; background:#F2F2F2"><td id="ep75">75</td><td>2x27</td> <td class="summary" style="text-align: left;">"Work Order"[22] </td><td>November 6, 2010 (2010-11-06)</td><td id="pc"></td></tr><tr><td class="description" style="border-bottom:3px solid #fbec5d" colspan="5"> Following a mission, Private accidentally crashes his airplane into a water main underneath the penguins' habitat, causing water to erupt from it. Alice takes notice and summons a repair man, Gus, whose efforts to repair the leak threaten the secrecy of the penguins' HQ. Although the penguins manage to conduct the repairs before Gus can the next morning, Gus refuses to take credit or payment for repairs he did not do and is determined to perform the service he was hired for, despite repeated sabotages by the penguins. After Skipper contemplates failure, the penguins eventually succeed when they create a fake zoo set-up in the park, which Gus repairs instead.

Meanwhile, the thieves return to the zoo to recover the loot but, despite the penguins warning of such, Julien refuses to relinquish the necklace. After taking possession of it, the penguins lead the thieves, who had been ejected from the zoo earlier, into a set-up at the jewelry store, where they are arrested by police.

Each animal is assigned a Kidsmas preparation task to perform, but Julien, desiring a different one, rearranges each animals' task. Said shuffling results in the lemurs being tasked with obtaining a Christmas tree, while Skipper has to take on the role of Santa. In hopes of being able to find "Santa's magic," Skipper and Private set out to locate the jolly old man, only to encounter multiple bell-ringing Santas and such look-alikes. Meanwhile, as the lemurs hunt for a tree before ultimately stealing one akin to the one in Rockefeller Center, chaos ensues at the zoo between different groups of animals over whether decorations should be rock and roll-themed or Dickensian. With such disarray, Skipper believes he has failed when the younger animals arrive for Kidsmas, but his spirits are lifted when the real Santa stops by to reassure him. All then embrace the spirit, singing "It ain't perfect, but it's Christmas."
