All Hail King Julien Wikipedia
When King Julien XII (also known as Uncle King Julien), a very strict and cowardly ring-tailed lemur who forced the kingdom to be quiet in order to avoid being attacked by fossa (spelled and pronounced as "foosa"), is foretold by Masikura that he will be eaten by the foosa, he hands down his kingship to his nephew King Julien XIII, a selfish, notorious party animal, and leaves him with an entire kingdom of lemurs to lead on his own. While Uncle King Julien is gone the new King Julien gets into various troubles in the company of his advisor Maurice, his head of security Clover, and Mort. All the while, his devious uncle returns and tries to get rid of his nephew to reclaim the throne. Outside of Uncle King Julien and the foosa, King Julien deals with other threats like the mad fanaloka Karl and Clover's twin sister Crimson.Danny Jacobs as King Julien XIII

The series was announced in March 2014 as part of an agreement between Netflix and DreamWorks Animation, under which the studio will develop more than 300 hours of exclusive programming for the service. The series is based on the characters from Madagascar, but is a prequel, set prior to the events of the film series. Danny Jacobs, Andy Richter, Kevin Michael Richardson reprised their roles from the previous Madagascar TV series, while Henry Winkler and India de Beaufort joined the cast.
The series has been released to critical acclaim. After the initial release of the first five episodes, Robert Lloyd of Los Angeles Times wrote in his review that the series "succeeds on matters of style, script, timing and performance, not the number of individual hairs rendered in a patch of fur. And Julien delivers on all the important accounts."
