Penguins of Madagascar

Neil Patrick Harris has brought his powerful pipes to the stage, the Internet and How I Met Your Mother, but now he's taking his singing voice to Nickelodeon's animated Penguins of Madagascar special, "Blowhole Strikes Back."

In the hourlong special (airing Friday at 8/7c), Harris returns as the penguins' sinister nemesis, Dr. Blowhole. In the exclusive clip below, Harris performs the power ballad "Mutant Disaster," one of six original songs from the movie.  

Check out the clip. Does Harris make a good monster, even in animated form?
