Celebrate President’s Day with three brand new adventures featuring everyone’s favorite monkey,Curious George! Starting Monday, February 21 and continuing through Wednesday February 23, CURIOUS GEORGE is back with new episodes featuring George imagining a world where everything is monkey-sized, building a soapbox derby racer, making a George-O-Matic dessert vending machine, and meeting some ewe-tiful sheep.
Monday kicks off with Downhill Racer. When George hears about the annual soapbox derby, he enlists Allie to help him make the coolest car a monkey can. Will their car made out of wagon wheels, a kayak, and brakes from a buggy race past the finish line or are they on a crash course? Next in Book Monkey, George loves books and helping others, so volunteering to help the librarian is a no-brainer! But when she is called away, George may have volunteered for a bigger job than he expected.
On Tuesday, in Monkey Size Me, George fantasizes about a life where everything is monkey-sized…where he could drive a monkey-sized car, order a monkey-sized cake, and even wear a monkey-sized yellow hat! Then in Metal Detective, George loses his favorite robot at the beach. Can a monkey rescue a robot using a homemade metal detector?
Rounding out the new episodes on Wednesday, George is entranced by the museum’s newest addition: a vending machine full of levers, wheels, springs, and healthy snacks! So when George is put in charge of making the dessert for an important dinner party, he can think of nothing better than creating his own dessert dispensing vending machine — the George-O-Matic. Then in Curious George, Sheep Herder, George buys a cool new scarf at the Country Fair, but with one tug on a loose strand of wool, the entire scarf unravels! While searching for sheep that will give him some wool for another scarf, will George’s baaaaaad day turn even worse?
