Rate this:
Tacky’s an odd bird, or Penguin rather, who likes to do splashy cannonballs and greet his companions with a loud “What’s happening?” In fact, he’s something of an eccentric, which his fellow penguins find somewhat bothersome until his odd behavior saves the day!

Tacky's perfect friends find him annoying until his odd behavior saves the day.

Baker & Taylor
When some intimidating visitors come to the penguin's icy land, Tacky the Penguin, an odd bird known for outrageous nonconformity, helps his conservative counterparts get rid of the unwanted intruders

& Taylor

Tacky the penguin does not fit in with his sleek and graceful companions, but his odd behavior comes in handy when hunters come with maps and traps.

Tacky marches to the beat of his own drum. All the other sophisticated and graceful penguins want nothing to do with him! Then hunters come and Tacky saves the day! Being different can sometimes be just the right thing.
