Trivia
When Skipper, Rico, and Kowalski find the Private, they see him in a sidewalk cart with the old lady inspecting its merchandise. Skipper then dons a pair of night-vision goggles to zoom in and view Private and subsequently the old lady purchasing him as a toy. When the action is shown as if the viewer was looking through the goggles, red text on a HUD very quickly scrolls above the green night vision image with the following text: Initializing penguin tracking system I/O.......
