The life of a businessman begins to change after he inherits six penguins, and as he transforms his apartment into a winter wonderland, his professional side starts to unravel.
In the source novel, Mr. Popper forms a vaudeville act called "Popper's Performing Penguins." This story element was considered as a movie plot but ultimately not used.
Hello! I have to send the penguins back.
Voice On Phone: Send-da-penguin?
Mr. Popper: Yes, send penguins.
In the 1970s, Thomas Popper Jr. uses an amateur radio set to communicate with his father. It is operating around 21.2460 MHZ; however, during this time period, this was not an available voice frequency to American amateurs.
After the end of the credits, you hear one of the penguins hoot three times (but not loud enough to be "Loudy"!)
