Kids may identify some animal species native to Madagascar, but the show mostly intends to entertain rather than to educate. The lemurs' place at the bottom of the food chain puts them in constant peril, but it's cast as comical and more reason to shirk responsibility for fun whenever possible. With power and prestige comes responsibility, and sometimes that means putting others' needs first. King Julien's selfishness often puts his subjects at risk, but there are moments when he steps up as a real leader. Julien makes light of threats to the lemurs face, and he often prioritizes his own desires over the needs of the whole community. Maurice is more realistic about a king's duties and tries to keep Julien on task.
