Club Penguin: Animated Adventures is a Canadian-British-American children's animated series co-developed by RocketSnail Productions and Disney Television Animation. It premiered around 2009/2010 as part of a promotion set for the MMO (massively multiplayer online game) it's based on, Club Penguin. The show was originally made for a 5-13 year old audience.
The original story takes place on October 2005, and it's about the adventures of a young boy named Zack Maddox, his younger sister Krista, and his two best friends, Declan Andersen and Cara Peng, as they try to survive being at Antarctica, a continent they were dropped off to while arriving at the wrong destination for their field trip at Turin, which is about studying the facts of the 2006 Winter Olympics. When these human kids meet up with penguin residents of Antarctica, discoveries, observations of the Island habitats, and adventures await them when Club Penguin Island is formed!
- Zack Gabriel Maddox-The lead character. He is a courageous, energetic, and fun-loving 6-year old who is always ready to take on his latest challenges. Having a big heart, Zack enthusiastically shows his emotions and devotions to people if they are in some type of major condition. He also loves to befriend animals and various other creatures. He's also the oldest of the group.
- Declan Marker Andersen-A 6-year old who is willing to make the world a safer and better place by being a helpful tutor to his fellow friends and raising money for his famous scientific projects. He is the "planner" and "scientist" of the group due to his passion for mystery solving and other studious subjects.
- Cara Rae Peng-A 6-year old who is very interested in creative pursuits and various types of arts.
