Children can be as dedicated as adults to a good cause. Like dressing up and learning about penguins. Yes, penguins. It’s time for everyone to learn about penguins! Ellen and some of her classmates all donned fake tuxedos to educate viewers about the waddling, flightless birds of cold climates.
And boy, sometimes we waddle a lot, don’t we? This is the basis of the entire presentation. But it’s a long song and there’s not much to do, so…
The troupe has to do moves you wouldn’t expect from penguins. But alternatives are rare. Therefore, we sacrifice realism for novelty. Much of the work is done using informative songs.
You have to admire the dedication of the performers. Some of them are waddling long after the song has ended and it’s time for the curtain call. And just like that, some small kids have done a good job of educating us about a bird they’ve never seen. The developing mind is a marvel.
