Michelle is a very minor character who makes an appearance in the film as a villain, Happy Feet. She is the mate of Maurice, the mother of Gloria, and the mother in-law of Mumble.


Happy FeetEdit

In Happy Feet, she first appeared in the reunion of mates, and when she finally meets up with Maurice and her new daughter Gloria, she exclaims "Aww, she's so darling!" She loves her daughter dearly but appears to care for her well being too much and is strict due to it.

After Mumble is sentenced to exile, Gloria tries to go after him and after her objections to her father's commands of not going after him, Michelle demands "Gloria, listen to your father."


Michelle is a female emperor penguin who has brown eyes like her daughter, a pink mouth on her beak, and a gold patch on her chest.


Not much about Michelle is known, possibly due to her lack of airing time, but she did display resentment towards Mumble, along with her husband Maurice, The Elders and Memphis whom she savagely, tragically, and severely maimed all, but Mumble barelysurvived. It's possible that she later changed her opinion about Mumble's dancing at the end of the first movie.

  • Chrissie_Hynde also portrayed the character Stephanie Schiffer who briefly took Phoebe Buffay's guitar playing gig at Central Perk on Friends.
