This is a easy-to-build Melman (full name: Melman Mankiewicz III) paper toy, based on the Madagascar animated film, the papercraft was created by DreamWorks Animation Origianl Site. Melman is a half-anthropomorphic giraffe, who appears in the DreamWorks film Madagascar. He is 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.
Melman had a residence at the Central Park Zoo, where he would receive constant medical treatment for problems that, oddly enough, were all a figment of his imagination. Melman would undergo MRIs, CAT scans, injections, flu shots, and be put into braces and crutches for no particular purpose at all. In the Central Park Zoo, Melman received treatment, and was so used to his cushy life taking pills and undergoing treatments. One night, however, Marty the Zebra escaped and Melman immediately informed Alex of this. When they end up getting spotted by the humans, the four find themselves on a big ship headed to Africa. Unfortunately thanks to the penguins, they fall off of the ship and end up on the island of Madagascar. The rest of the film is about how Melman and his friends get used to being stuck on this island, and in the end, they seem to be a bit used to it.
Although it is a big scary, and nerve-wrecking endeavor, Melman is all too eager to help his friends when it comes to saving christmas… as long as they are there to pull him out of the chimneys when he gets stuck!
