A Penguin Named Memphis

Posted By on Wed, Nov 22, 2006 at 4:00 AM

In Happy Feet, the animated feature film that danced and sang its way to the top of the box office last week, Elijah Wood plays Mumble, an emperor penguin with a tap dancing problem.

But even in Antarctica, there’s a Memphis. Mumble’s father, voiced by Hugh Jackman, is named Memphis. So what does this Memphis sound like? According to The New York Times, “Jackman throws his voice into the deep-fryer and comes up with something that’s a little bit country, a little bit rock ’n’ roll.”

Sounds about right.
