Marty is the best friend of Alex, a close friend of Gloria and Melman and the deuteragonist of the 2005 full-length animated Dreamworks film, Madagascar, and the two sequels that followed it. He is voiced by Chris Rock.

Why He Rocks

  1. Much like Donkey (another beloved Dreamworks comedic sidekick character), he's shown to be very hilarious and manages to steal the show from time to time.
  2. He's shown to be very friendly and well-meaning, especially towards his friends.
  3. His spit tactic is one of the most memorable things about him.
  4. Chris Rock does an amazing job at voicing this character.
  5. He's got many memorable lines of dialogue, such as his occasional catchphrase "Crackalackin'".
  6. In the movies, he's shown to be able to survive and live in the wild outside of civilization.
  7. His song, Pock-a-dot Afro, from Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted is very short but unforgettable and catchy.
  8. He's willing to try new things and convinces his friends to do the same.
