Little Zoo Coupe
King Julien is taken to the hospital after showing strange behaviour, so Maurice is left in charge. But Maurice soon develops the same behaviour, and begins to rule the zoo with an iron fist. Its up to the penguins and King Julien to stop Maurice before he takes over the zoo then New York.
The penguins hear hysterical laughing noise coming from outside. The laugh is coming from King Julien who has gone crazy and has red eyes. He is taken to the zoo doctor and Maurice is put in charge. Maurice eventually eats the Lychee nuts and becomes power crazy himself. Maurice becomes a tyrant and demands that all the animals swear their loyalty to him.
Maurice cuts off the power for all of the other habitats when his demands are not met. At this point, the penguins break into the control room with the intent of restoring power only to be caught in traps. Maurice has his new gorilla bodyguards, Bada and Bing, hang the penguins up in front of his throne, but Skipper cuts himself and the others loose with a playing card.
The penguins go to the animal care building and find King Julien doing well. It turns out guava-berry juice counteracts the Lychee nuts enzymes which intensify aggression. Kowalski stores some of the juice in aerosol form and they head back to cure Maurice.
When the penguins arrive they announce their intentions to Maurice and as a result are sent flying into a wall when they attempt to spray Maurice. Mort gets the can and cures Maurice and all is well.
Mort is seen eating the remaining three nuts at the end, his eyes glowing red.
