A Madagascar Time Mistake is a 2012 Madagascar film. It takes place after Madagascar 3 but before Madagascar 4.
- This film takes place after Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted due to the fact that the animals are at the circus and that all the circus animals are there.
- The penguins and lemurs have the series design and not the movie design. They are the main men here too as well as the series so that's a possible reason but it's still not known why the lemurs have their series design.
