In Madagasgar and its spin-off series, Kowalski is the “smart guy” in a stealthy group of penguins. Oftentimes, the leader of the group, Skipper would look to Kowalski and ask for his analysis by saying “Kowalski, analysis!” or “Kowalski, status report!”

Many memes using Kowalski and his penguin friends as reaction images have been circulating on Reddit.
