J. Perreault | New York, NY | 07/08/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The story follows closely to the book, and is very nicely done! Creative claymation."
Repackaged stop motion animated features

"If you are looking for a Curious George DVD from the cartoon animated PBS series, this is not the DVD for you. I believe the cover is misleading in this regard because it is actually a stop motion animation feature made in 1982. There are two Frog and Toad features, also stop motion, which are Frog and Toad Together and Frog and Toad Are Friends. These two appear to have been made in 1987 and 1985, respectively. It appears this DVD was packaged in 2004 by Sterling Entertainment, so the 2005 date listed by Amazon is based on the release date and does not reflect production dates.

More Frog and Toad than Curious George
L. Spangler | Hopewell, NJ United States | 03/26/2007

"This is a nice, classically animated DVD. However, I was disappointed that the majority of the DVDs running time is devoted to the "Frog and Toad" stories, with only one Curious George story included. This video should really be called "Frog and Toad stories, with a bonus Curious George episode"."
No Respect!

"This video is deliberately deceptive. It's stop-motion animation, not cartoon animation. Even the title "Curious George Comes to America" is a fabrication. This film was based on the original book written by the Reys in 1939. This book was simply named "Curious George". (It was the book Tom Hank's son carried around in Forest Gump. It was also the first book I ever checked out of the library in 1958.)

When I created the Curious George and Frog And Toad films in the early 80's, both authors, Margaret Rey and Arnold Lobel were still alive. Every effort was made to be true to their books - there was genuine respect for their work. The resulting films won many awards and were best sellers in their market. How does it come about that these films, considered classics by some, are now being used as fodder for the exploitation market? Is this part of the anything-for-money attitude that has dragged our country down? One thing is clear: SVE has no respect for authors or filmmakers living or dead. Shame on SVE!
