From Muppet Wiki

Penguins in Muppets from Space
What my father figured out was if you can't get out, you just either blow something up, or you eat something, or you just throw penguins in the air.
Brian Henson [1]

The Penguins are mostly nameless and undifferentiated from one another. Generally playful and wacky in nature, they have appeared in many Muppet productions (sometimes in places where penguins are not commonly seen). They are best known for tossing themselves into the air. In The Muppets' Wizard of Oz, the Muppet penguins are referred to by Scooter as "unisex" or genderless.

The Muppet Show

Brian Henson built the very first Muppet penguin, which was used for the "Lullaby of Broadway" on The Muppet Show Episode 304. [2] He was given the name Winky Pinkerton in episode 308. He was the only penguin in the cast until four penguins popped up in episode 320's "Hawaiian War Chant." The complete group of penguins appeared for the first time in episode 321. Groups of penguins include the Pilgrim Penguins and the Endangered Species Chorus Line.

Other Muppet Productions

Penguins are featured as musicians in the orchestra pit in a few Muppet productions. In Muppet*Vision 3D, Nicky Napoleon and His Emperor Penguins appeared in both puppet and animatronic form. The penguins also provided the background music for Little Muppet Monsters.

Nellie Penguin also made an appearance on an episode of Mopatop's Shop.

Sesame Street

The penguins that have appeared on Sesame Street vary slightly from those on The Muppet Show, mostly notably in possessing orange eyelids and light gray beaks. A team of penguin softball players appeared on episode 4072, while episode 4112 featured a graduating class of penguins. An entire episode of Elmo's World was dedicated the antarctic bird, including one Caesar Penguin.

International Sesame Street Penguins

A blue-billed penguin named Georges appears on 5, Rue Sésame, the most recent French Sesame Street co-production.

A penguin, as seen during an automatic sequence in the Cold War quest

The Penguin is an NPC and one of Andrew Gower's favourite animals[1], revered in a manner similar to Bob the Jagex Cat. Penguins are innocuous and weak creatures found in the Ardougne Zoo and north of Miscellania, but two intelligent penguins can be found wearing a sheep costume in Lumbridge.

The Penguin quest series heavily involves penguins. Apparently, penguins are smarter than they appear. Even Juna warns a player not to underestimate them. Penguins also have some roles in the D&D Penguin Hide and Seek.

Locations

Quests

Main article: Penguin quest series
  • Penguins are first introduced in the quest Cold War, where the player must invade the Penguins' base, and find out more of their evil plans. Along the way, the player meets a rather deranged zookeeper named Larry who is obsessed with penguins.
  • The quest series is then continued in Hunt for Red Raktuber, where the player must investigate a recent mysterious activity, later shown to involve the penguins and their plans. Their plans include the penguins combining forces with the "sea", which may refer to Mother Mallum, as Captain Marlin of the Red Raktuber has already been mind-controlled by a sea slug. This quest also requires the quest Sea Slug to be completed, giving another reason why the series may be integrated with the Sea Slug quest series.

Trivia

  • The Motherland is in reference to the Soviet Union. The USSR was referred to as "Mother Russia" and "The Motherland". Meanwhile, the quest name "Cold War" is an obvious reference to the actual Cold War between the Soviet Union and the United States.
  • During the miniquest Shadow Sword, after the player mention to Sin Seer that they need help "joining a bad guys group", she will guess the penguins to be among a few other groups of notoriously bad people.
  • Every year, on the last week of October (during the Hallowe'en event), the penguins are disguised as a pumpkin (instead of their usual disguises) to celebrate Hallowe'en, and on the last week of the Christmas holiday event they are disguised as snowmen.

From Yu-Gi-Oh!

Penguin
English

Penguin

Appears in (Anime)

Yu-Gi-Oh! second series anime

The Penguin is a small Archetype used by Crump during the Virtual World arc. Most of the Penguin monsters are normal monsters with unremarkable ATK and DEF points, although Penguin Soldier is quite useful. Any real Penguin Deck would have trouble making it in a real game, but here are a few card suggestions and explanations of these cards.

Contents

Main Cards of Archetype

Penguin Soldier: This card can send 2 monsters on the field back to its owner's hand; You can Flip this card to return 1 monster your opponent controls and this monster, so you can re-use this cards effect.

Penguin Knight: This card is like a Pot of Avarice that requires him to be sent from Deck to Graveyard. Basically it takes away the graveyard and adds it to the deck, making this useful against Zombie decks, Lightsworns decks, or any deck that involves the Graveyard. If your opponent uses deck milling cards, this cards effect can be easily activated.

Nightmare Penguin: This is the best card of the Penguin archetype. Not only does it return your opponent's monster to their hand, it also boosts the ATK of all WATER monsters by 200! One thing to note about Nightmare Penguin is that he has 1800 DEF, decent for stalling.

Flying Penguin: It has the highest ATK of all Penguin monsters, a minimal ATK of 1200. It's a Normal Monster, so it has no effect. Combined with "Nightmare Penguin" , "A Legendary Ocean" and "Star Boy" he has 2100 ATK, more than average Level 4 monsters.

Playing Style

Penguins seem to focus on Bouncing cards back to its owner's hand with cards like Penguin Soldier and Nightmare Penguin. Cards like Neo-Spacian Grand Mole can be used in this deck to keep with the Bouncing theme. The Trap Card Spiritual Water Art - Aoi can dispose of monsters that you returned to the opponent's hand, so using it after using Penguin Soldier or Nightmare Penguin is a great combo to get rid of those strong monsters. Since the max limit of cards in either player's hand is 6 cards, this Bouncing can be used to force your opponent into discarded cards, leaving them with less options. The win condition of Penguins is to clear the opponent's field by Bouncing then attacking directly. By using Book of Moon, you can re-use these effects to return cards to the opponent's hand again.

Weaknesses

Almost all the Penguin monsters have less than 1200 original ATK, and require ATK and DEF boosting cards to keep them in play long enough for their effects. Cards that destroy Spell and Trap cards like Mystical Space Typhoon or Heavy Storm can be a burden to Penguins if they target Field Spell Cards. Cards like Skill Drain that take away Nightmare Penguin and Star Boy effects can cripple this deck.
