Isn't it Danish not Megan? 05:30, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

No, Danish has longer hair. 05:37, 15 August 2014 (UTC)
Also, if it were Danish, she would have a good come back for black hat. 13:54, 15 August 2014 (UTC)BK

Would Movie Ages ( be just as pertinent, if not more so, than Timeghost? Should we include a reference to it in the explanation? 14:08, 15 August 2014 (UTC)DBrak

Good idea. I think we should, so I've included that reference now.

This is totally off-topic, but I can't help myself. I remember reading somewhere that the film was made by a French team (I think) and they realized they had a hit on their hands. But when they were negotating with a distributor for the USA market that it was demanded that all reference to the penguins' amazing behavior being due to their evolutionary development had to be removed. "Evolution" was a dirty word for the USA market. --RenniePet (talk) 22:28, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

I don't think RenniePet's comment is off-topic; the same audience that they deleted "Evolution" for used it as an example for family values and ID - is the "Oh God" dialog an allusion to whether Black Hat been playing God? --FractalgeekUK (talk) 00:17, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
I found a NY Times article on the evolution point: 01:23, 17 August 2014 (UTC)
