The Best Animated Film Oscar of 2006 went to this cartoon about an adorable penguin whose inability to sing sets him apart. (Luckily, the little guy can tap dance up a storm.) Amid the eye-poppingly choreographed musical numbers there are messages about prejudice, individuality, tolerance and being environmentally conscious. A pivotal plot point involves the over-fishing of the penguins’ feeding grounds, endangering the habitat and the species.
