Whether you have ever watched any film of this American computer-animated media franchise or not, we will be with you to discover all about it so that we can determine the origin of this shirt. And first of all, let’s get to know more about the famous series Madagascar.
Madagascar Film Franchise
Madagascar refers to an American computer-animated media franchise owned and produced by the famous studio DreamWorks Animation.
This is a series about the adventures of four animals in the African homeland at the New York Central Zoo. Those four animals include the lion Alex, the zebra Marty, the giraffe Melman, and the hippo Gloria. Additionally, there is also a flock of penguins and the lemur Julien.
The series starts with the 2005 film Madagascar. The sequel Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa, and is in 2008, and the third film Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted is in 2012. In 2014, a spin-off film featuring the penguins, named Penguins of Madagascar, was released. A fourth film, Madagascar 4, was originally announced to be released in 2018. But the film has later been removed from its schedule because of the studio’s restructuring.
There is a lot of meaning behind the exciting adventure of the animals, for example, children can learn the inspirational freedom lesson that the circus troupe brought to the quartet when the lion Alex wanted to return to New York Central Zoo. Besides, there are also the best efforts of the lion Alex and his friends to make the circus perform better.
After the adventure, all the animal friends have changed themselves, changed their thinking about life, as well as thinking about where they really belong.
The journey of the four characters in the movie brings a lot of joy and laughter to the audience. Each character in Madagascar has a unique personality. But here, we want to talk more about the giraffe Melman, also the inspiration for us to make this shirt.
I Hate Melman shirt features two main parts which are the image of Melman the Giraffe and the quote “I Hate Melman I Will Snap His Stupid Friken Neck”. To understand why we choose this quote for this lovely shirt, it’s important to know more about Melman’s personality. And while Melman appears in different parts of the series, we would analyze more about it in the first film Madagascar 2005, and its sequel Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa in 2008.
Melman is known as a male reticulated giraffe who formerly lived in the Central Park Zoo in New York City. In the film, the character is depicted with various features of appearance including a long neck, a furry coat, whiskers, a snout, brown spots, antlers, and a tufted tail.
In Madagascar (2005), Melman is someone who is especially uncomfortable in the wild but finally, he gets used to being stuck on this island and seems to be a bit used to it.
In a flashback in Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa, a hint points out that Melman had a crush on Gloria as a child (because he looks quite uncomfortable when she says that Alex is cute). He takes the position of Witch Doctor to cure sick animals, introduce them to Western medicine, which helps give them longer and better lives.
While he seems to be very good at this job, another giraffe informs him that Melman has a brown spot on his shoulder, one which the previous Witch Doctor may have got and “was gone” just two days later. Melman is so scared to know that once a giraffe becomes sick, it has no way to survive. The only thing it can do is simply wait in a hole to die.
With a thought in mind that he only has two days to live, Melman initially waits in a hole. Then he decides to take King Julien’s advice and goes to express his love to Gloria. He looks for her on a date and lets her know what a wonderful girl Gloria is. When the watering hole dries up and King Julien wants to sacrifice an animal for the water gods, it’s Melman who offers himself to sacrifice. At the last moment, he is saved when Gloria admits that she also loves him and they become a couple. Now it is apparent that the “brown spot” was not fatal.
Melman in the film is a very good guy who is loyal to his friends, but he is considered somewhat of a hypochondriac, having doses of medicine for meals and doctor’s appointments frequently. He even complains about having brown spots on his neck though in real life, these spots are regarded as something so natural.
While it is clear that he’s loved Gloria since childhood, this character has always felt too nervous to tell her. He is afraid that it would ruin their friendship and it probably wouldn’t work out. Luckily, in Africa, Melman turns to be less neurotic because he has finally won Gloria’s love. The time when Melman is in a great relationship with Gloria is truly the time he enjoys his life!
Melman appears with different characteristics. While the giraffe is considered to be neurotic, worrisome, and shy, he is also said to be kind, funny, frolicsome, loving, brave, caring. However, it’s his stupid features that are a great inspiration for us to make this shirt.
In the movie, there are scenes of his nervousness, goofiness, and shyness that seem to drive us crazy. At those times, we just want to snap his stupid neck so that he can think and act in a better way. Yes! To be honest, we want to say: “I Hate Melman I Will Snap His Stupid Friken Neck” – which is exactly what we describe in our I Hate Melman Shirt.
The image of Melman put inside the prohibition notice shows dislike for this character. The word “friken” in the funny quote refers to an easier way to say fucken. This is a funny quote to express our feelings to the stupid giraffe Melman.
The phrase “I will snap his stupid friken neck” is also related to a quite irritating detail in the film. It’s when Melman doesn’t stop complaining about having brown spots on his neck right when these spots are regarded as something normal in real life. That’s why we mention we will snap his stupid friken neck in I Hate Melman shirt.
