In aid of World Penguin Day we decided to honour everyone’s favourite bird by ranking our top 10 penguins.
10. Feathers McGraw (Wallace & Gromit)
This little shit has to be at the bottom of the list and perhaps should be considered as the creepiest clay animated character going.
9. Club Penguin
Although Club Penguin is no more, what better way is there to corrupt your innocence than run around as a virtual penguin talking to strangers on the internet as soon as you’re home from school.
8. The Penguin (Danny DeVito)
As much as we love Danny DeVito this penguin is just a little too creepy for us.
7. Frozen Planet Penguins
Everything David Attenborough touches turns to gold so we had to include his take on these thieving penguins.
6. Toy Story 2’s Wheezy
Wheezy’s role in Toy Story 2 took us on a wild roller coaster of emotions that we’re not sure we’ve ever fully gotten over.
5. Mary Poppins’ Penguins
Animated penguins dancing with real life Dick Van Dyke and Julie Andrews was always going to be a winner.
A childhood classic so we couldn’t leave this out. Not sure we realised how weird Pingu was as kids, though.
3. Happy Feet’s Mumble
Again, dancing penguins. We can’t get enough of them.
2. Madagascar’s Penguins
Skipper for President.
1. Bitch Slap Penguin
This penguin is our ultimate idol.
