What is this about?
Penguin Town is about a very unusual kind of penguin: a raucous colony of endangered African penguins who walk the streets of Simon’s Town, South Africa, every summer, causing traffic jams and mayhem wherever they go.
The penguins arrive every summer to reproduce, having evolved to the scorching temperatures and being able to travel large distances. They take up beaches, streets, and even car parks in their effort to marry and prevent extinction.

The series introduces some of the quirkier of the quirky birds, including a troublemaking group nicknamed the “Car Park Gang” and cuddly newlyweds Mr. and Mrs. C, who all seem to have VIP status in the African town as they live, breed, and try to mate.
They're rowdy, they're hoping to find mates, and they're trying to procreate.

They’ve been together for most of their life, even rearing 12 offspring in Simon’s Town under the same bush, and they’re roughly 12 years old, which is middle age for penguins.
“They’re the poster penguins for monogamy,” says Patton. “They know how to build the colony better than anyone and they’ve learned a secret that in Simon’s Town the closer to humans, the safer the nest because humans scare predators away. Their bush is one of the coolest spots in the neighborhood, which is crucial in the African heat.”
