Maurice (birth name: Bricky) is an overweight aye-aye and a supporting character that appears in the Madagascar movies (except Penguins of Madagascar), The Penguins of Madagascar and All Hail King Julien.


Madagascar 01

Maurice is King Julien's advisor - although Julien seldom listens to him - and often shows skepticism of his ruler's mad plans. He has a long squirrel-like bushy tail. He lived in a tribe of other lemurs and witnessed newcomers to their home: a quartet of zoo animals. Maurice was suspicious of Alex, a lion, thinking him to be potentially dangerous. Maurice expressed this concern during a meeting of the lemurs and jungle animals, but was ignored by Julien. The next day, Maurice took part in the festival honoring the newcomers. During the festival, his suspicions about Alex become confirmed as Alex starts to give into his natural predatory instincts, and shortly after explained the trouble with having a lion around. He knew that Alex would need to eat meat, and felt that Alex should leave and go to the carnivore side of the island.

Shortly after, Maurice witnessed Gloria, Melman, and Marty working with a group of penguins to fight off the fossa that were attacking the lemur tribe. Maurice had to admit that King Julien's plan had worked and that fossa would no longer be of any worry. Maurice saw the newcomers out when they decided to leave and was obligated to wave King Julien's arm for him, as the king was tired of waving it.

Madagascar 02


The Penguins of Madagascar

In the series, he often acts like a strict big brother to Mort and knows him so well that in "The Penguin Stays in the Picture" he is shocked to find that Mort only ate half of his popsicle, prompting Skipper to go find him because he suspected Mort went missing, which was correct.

He is shown to have many hidden talents in several episodes such as painting and speaking chameleon in "The Hidden" and using a yo-yo in "Friend-in-a-Box." In "The Lost Treasure of the Golden Squirrel," his desire to control an army of Julien man-servants is revealed. Despite being overweight, he was still able to hold his own when he got into a physical fight with Kowalski and Rico in "The Lost Treasure of the Golden Squirrel." He has shown attraction to Darla the Baboon.

Madagascar 03

Maurice returns with a much smaller role in Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted, where He, Julien, Mort and the Zoosters catches up with the penguins and chimps in Monte Carlo. After joining Circus Zaragoza, the trio of lemurs encounter a dark, pitch-black and scary train car holding Sonya the bear. Julien falls in love with Sonya, weirding-out Maurice and Mort. The two show up again in a few scenes, where they gun Dubois with a tranquilizer dart at the end of the film.
