Posted on 21 Nov 2011

Curious George in a barrel of applesCurious George fans delight!

The "Curious George" Holiday Spectacular features 3 hours of everyone's favorite spunky monkey and will air in three parts.

"Curious George: The Movie" follows George as he sets off on a series of adventures. In the film, after the Man with the Yellow Hat accidentally brings George back from a business trip to Africa, the unlikely twosome embarks on a fun-filled journey through the big city and ultimately finds their way to a lasting friendship. Featuring gorgeous and old-fashioned two-dimensional animation that echoes the simple colors and shapes of the books by Margret and H. A. Rey, “Curious George” includes voice talents Will Ferrell (as the Man with the Yellow Hat), Drew Barrymore and Dick Van Dyke, as well as all-original music from Jack Johnson.
Watch "Curious George: The Movie" Wednesday, Nov. 23, at 7 a.m. or Thursday, Nov. 24, at 11 a.m.

 In “Curious George 2: Follow That Monkey,” the fun-filled sequel to the hit animated movie, Curious George and the Man with the Yellow Hat set out on a madcap cross-country adventure to reunite Kayla, a homesick elephant, with her family. This unlikely trio faces all types of comic calamities and colorful characters and in the end learns that with family, friends and determination you can achieve anything. “Curious George 2” features the voices of Tim Curry, Matt Lauer, Jamie Kennedy and Jerry Lewis.
Watch "Curious George 2: Follow That Monkey" Wednesday, Nov. 23, at 8:30 a.m. or Thursday, Nov. 24, at 12:30 p.m.

In “Curious George: A Very Monkey Christmas,” Curious George and the Man with the Yellow Hat are having a wonderful time getting ready for Christmas. There's only one dilemma – neither of them can figure out what to give the other for a present. In the end, both gift-giving predicaments are simply and beautifully resolved, revealing the true spirit of the holiday season.
Watch "Curious George: A Very Monkey Christmas" Wednesday, Nov. 23, at 10 a.m. or Thursday, Nov. 24, at 2 p.m.

Watch a preview of the "Curious George" Holiday Spectacular and play games on the PBS KIDS website.
