Happy Feet Two
Mrs. Astrakhan is a former minor antagonist in Happy Feet. She is a female emperor penguin who is portrayed as a large operatic penguin, much like the impression of opera singers today. She has a foreign, yet broken English, German-Russian accent; she pronounces her V's as W's and pronounces her 'ings' as a k, such as "Feelink," "Darlink" or "Sink" and sometimes rolls her R's. She is short-tempered, angry, mad, grouchy, loud, musical, cranky, operatic, gruff, grumpy, and no-nonsense.
Viewed as the best teacher in the lands, she is known to never fail in her teachings, as stated by Miss. Viola; "If anyone can, Mrs. Astrakhan can." Mrs. Astrakhan tried her hardest to teach the tone-deaf Mumble and was deeply distressed when she felt she too had failed him, remarking "I never fail before! Never! Never!" sobbing and banging her head on a block of ice.
However, she did not fail in her teachings; she taught Mumble that there was a feeling inside his soul who he truly was a tap dancer; this likely reinforced his talents in tap dancing.
- Originally, Mrs. Astrakhan was supposed to appear in Happy Feet Two but she is cut from the sequel if she did appear. It's unknown if Miriam Margoyles reprises her role.
- In Happy Feet: The Videogame, Memphis referred her as Mrs. A in the level "Cooling The Pipes".
- In the movie, she is voiced by Miriam Margoyles who voiced Mrs. P. from Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole, Fly in Babe, Matchmaker in Mulan, The Queen in Early Man and Rita's Grandma in Flushed Away.
- (Singing) Kak boyus' ya vas, znat' uvidel vas, ya v nedobryi chas!
- Can't sink? Can't sink? Rubbish, darlink. Every little pengvin has a sonk. Ven I have finished, your singing will be giving everyone the goose pimple!
- First, we must find a feelink. Happy feelink... sad feelink... maybe... lonely feelink.
- Let it out! Be SPONTANEOUS!!!
- Do you want to meet beautiful girl? Do you want to make the egg? Then, SIIIINK! And no jiggy-jog! Do not move muscle! No moving!
- Enough! Forget body. Look inside soul. Feel the feelink...enormous feelink, so enormous, it fills whole body! It must escape, or you EXPLODE!
- Now... Now... (Singing operatically) NNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWW!
- Ohh, disaster! Catastrophe! I never fail before! Never! Never! (sobbing)
