So finally I got to watch Happy Feet, I’ve watched it twice since! I adore Fluffy Little Mumbles! The graphics were amazing, the soundtrack was hot and the voice-cast was just perfect; Robin Williams, Fat Joe, Brittany Murphy, Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman to name a few!
Set deep inside the icy land of Antarctica, two emperor penguins have a baby named Mumble (Elijah Wood). Hatched upon his feet, he has an amazing skill for tap-dancing. However, penguins are not supposed to tap dance. Even worse, he cannot sing. All emperor penguins had supposed to have a heartsong, in which has a try at it, with awful results. Torn apart from his mom (Nicole Kidman), dad (Hugh Jackman), and best friend, Gloria (Brittany Murphy), as a teenager who still has his adolescent feathers, his ventures off into the icy landscape. He is rescued from a leopard seal from a group of Adelie penguins, whom which the leader is Ramon (Robin Williams). They take Mumble to their home and discover that all of their fish is being taken from an unknown ‘alien’ source. They ask Lovelace (Robin Williams), a non-wise and cocky leader of the Adelies, to help them. Unfortunately, he becomes of no help. Leading on an incredible adventure, they try to discover the threat of their food source and survival. Using courage and bravery, Mumble begins to teach everyone begins to learn that uniqueness isn’t a burden, but is a gift to be treasured. [source]

Ramón: I believe they are herbivores.
Ramón: You know, kelp suckers!

Memphis: You bet you will. The word triumph starts with “try” and ends with…?
Young Mumble: umph?
