It's ok but one little issue...

This show is ok. My only issue with the show is that they call George a monkey, even though since he lacks a tail that would technically make him an app.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (36 ):
Kids say (35 ):

Witty and clever, the series more than does justice to the beloved books. as George's infectious enthusiasm for exploring the world around him not only amuses tots but also introduces them to math, science, and engineering concepts. The show's scripts are smart and engaging, with the supporting characters providing plenty of humor and many clever twists in the story lines. The animation is sharp and colorful, but classic in the sense that it stays true to the art in the books -- which should please fans. Preschoolers will love following Curious George on his entertaining adventures and learning about the world around them.
