Live your life to the fullest. Don't be afraid to be yourself, no matter who you are. These are the lessons you learn through the song-and-dance animated movie Happy Feet
. George Miller, the writer-director of Happy Feet
used outstanding computer animation to create this visual treat. The voice-over by Nicole Kidman, Hugh Jackman, Robin Williams, and Elijah Wood make this movie the most accomplished animation film of 2006. It is no wonder that Happy Feet
won the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature in 2006. For penguin lovers, here is a collection of memorable Happy Feet
Just a moment... I hear people wanting something... ME!
- Baby Seymour
Don't push me 'cause I am close to the edge. I'm trying not to lose my head.
[talking to humans] I'm speaking plain penguin!
Ladies, please avert your eyes, 'cause I've been known to hypnotize.
We got personality, with a capital Y. Why? Because we're hot!
I like big tails and I can't deny!
[about the leopard seal, who is crawling backwards] Oh he's leaving! Oh, no! That was his face!
- Baby Gloria
[to Mumble's unhatched egg] Is it empty? Can I have it?
STOP! Lemme tell something to joo... I know size can be daunting... but don't be afraid... I love you!
Yeah, I saw an animal do that once and then they rolled him over and he was dead.
Let me tell something to joo! When I find out what's happening to the fish, I'll be back!
Enraged by their indifference, he followed them long after they had gone from his sight. He swam further than any of us had before, past all hope of return. Swept up by the currents, he was carried endlessly, across vast oceans, to worlds unknown.
I don't care where you come from, that has got to hurt!
You did everything penguinly possible.
- Leopard Seal: Come here, sausage. I take you with ketchup!
Ramon: Yeah, but first you gotta catch up!
- Memphis: Whatcha doin' there, boy?
Baby Mumble: [tap dancing] I'm happy, Pa!
Memphis: Whatcha doin' with your feet?
Baby Mumble: [looks down] They're happy, too!
- Memphis: You bet you will. The word triumph starts with "try" and ends with...?
Young Mumble: umph?
Memphis: That's right, a great big UMPH!
