Goodness glaciers!
~ Hubie's catchphrase

Hubie is the main protagonist of The Pebble and the Penguin. He's an Adelie Penguin with red winter hat and yellow scarf around his neck. He is in love with Marina and tries to find the perfect pebble for her. He also faces against his rival Drake, who also wants to be Marina's mate.

With the help of a rockhopper named Rocko, Hubie travels to return to Antartica and marries Marina.

He is voiced by Martin Short, who also voiced Stefano in Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted and B.E.N. in Treasure Planet''.


An outcast of Penguins, whose goal is to fit in and make friends, He is in love with Marina, and he is more for her kindness as she is into his, he is shy, clumsy, and very comic relief. When he finds the "Pebble" he believes it would be the best to impress Marina, but Drake the power hungry, and unnatural penguin wanted to steal it, and give it to her and take the credit, but Hubie refused and was given a forceful death sentence to the Leopard Seal. But Hubie Survived.

When Hubie awoke after 3 days in the sea into a Smuggler ship that smuggled Penguins into Zoos.

Role in Film

He was always usurped to get a pebble, and when he makes a wish an Emerald Cube comes at his feet, and Hubie mistakes it as a pebble and sees his wish came true, but the Vile Drake actually tries to steal it! He later marries Marina and they have kids at the end of the film.




  • His design is similar to Winnie the Pooh and the Dodo from Alice in Wonderland, and his voice is more akin to Heffer Wolfe from Rocko's Modern Life.
