In the waddle of penguins where Mumble (voice by Elijah Wood) is born, being able to sing ensures status in the flock and the best chance for attracting a mate. Unfortunately, this Antarctic dweller can't carry a tune, even though he's an amazing dancer. This coming-of age tale focuses on the positives of non-conformity, environmental issues and MTV style dance numbers-- but not much on the storyline.
