Hollywood Screws Up Animation as Easily as Everything Else.

Why is it that the supporting characters in these animated films are most interesting than the main protagonists? In the new Alpha and Omega I was rooting for the Goose (Larry Miller) and the Duck to totally hijack the proceedings.

Similarly, in the Madagascar films King Julian and entourage along with the Penguins are far more interesting and entertaining than the three main characters. (As evidenced by the fairly good Nicktoons spin-off.)

Side note: Big name celebrities voicing the characters is a waste of money. Use real voice actors and concentrate on writing. (The only time I’ve seen a celebrity earn their pay as voice talent was James Woods in both Hercules and JLA: Crisis on Two Earths and David Spade in The Emperor’s New Groove. All seemed tailored for them particularly.)
