Antoinette is a Malagasy girl Eliza befriends in "Luck Be An Aye Aye." She is the daughter of truck driver Dakobe. It is unknown what happened to her mother, so either her father is a widower or he is divorced. She first appears playing in the forest with Eliza and Darwin. When Eliza comes across the nest of an aye aye Donnie had taken into the comvee, Antoinette warns her that an aye aye spells danger to the locals. The comvee falls apart and when Eliza attempts to return Karoo to the jungle, the villagers follow in hot pursuit in an attempt to kill the aye aye. In the end, Karoo returns to his home and Eliza tells Antoinette that they both can believe what they believe in before departing from Madagascar.
