The challenges and missions are provided by the Penguins and usually involve wacky publicity stunts at famous European landmarks as well as the usual circus performances in the big top. King Julien, Maurice, Mort and the chimps Phil and Mason all tag along for the ride as the team meets new characters along the way.
