Madagascar: A Little Wild | Season 3 Features a Pride Episode and New Song
Madagascar: A Little Wild is kicking off Pride Month with a Pride-themed episode and brand new original song “Be Proud!”, featured among the series’ newest episodes premiering on Peacock and Hulu May 27.
The episode and colorful anthem features new habitat resident and nonbinary character “Odee Elliot” the Okapi and is voiced by nonbinary actor Ezra Menas (Spielberg’s West Side Story, Broadway’s Jagged Little Pill, pronouns: zie/hir/they).
"If I would have seen this when I was a kid, I don't even know what I would've done. This kind of acceptance and love and celebration, I think, is the biggest takeaway from this episode. It's just a beautiful thing. Makes me cry."
The Pride-themed episode called “Whatever Floats Your Float,” written by Laura Zak, takes place in the lead up to the habitat’s annual Animal Pride Parade.
When Marty meets the habitat's newest resident Odee, Marty can't decide what float Odee should join. Are they a zebra? Or a giraffe?
In Marty's personal mission to define what kind of animal Odee is, he is missing out on celebrating all the wonderful things that make Odee who they are.
