Everyone's favorite domesticated monkey returns for more antics in this series that proves some characters just never get old. Curious George always entertains, perfectly capturing the nature of a preschooler's sense of curiosity and embarking on mostly self-guided escapades to satisfy his sense of wonder. Because he doesn't speak, a narrator offers context to his actions and insight to his thoughts and emotions.

Despite his best intentions to stave off disasters, George's experiences always lead to mischief of one kind or another, but that never seems to discourage him. Kids can learn a lot from his ability to think on his feet and to bounce back when things just don't go his way. Mostly, though, George's adventures just entertain in a pleasant and humorous way that's fun for preschoolers and their parents.
