Movie Reviews

Not your father's Curious George (or yours)
The Commodore | Bloomington, IN | 03/03/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I remember the Curious George books pretty well from my own childhood, so when I first saw this animated series, I was skeptical. Would it be as fun and educational as the original books? The answer surprised me ... it's BETTER!

The DVD consists of a series of short segments that are perfect for toddlers AND their parents. Each episode is full of humor. Your three-year-old may not get all the jokes, but you will! Each focuses on a specific concept: balance, coral reefs, leverage, and even paleontology. Each has a positive, pro-curiosity, pro-science message. There is a brief "reality" segment at the end, where a group of real children expand on the concepts presented in the cartoon segments. Both the animation and the background music are first-rate.

I can't even put my two-year-old to bed nowadays without at least a few episodes of "Cur George." He loves it, and ... yes, I'll admit it ... I think it's fun too."
Great episodes

"My two year old daughter is obsessed with Curious George and all the dvd's that are available in the series, except the one about being scared of the dark. I believe that scary episode is on "Rocket ride". All the other George Dvd's including this one are really great for young children."
The "funny monkey" is great fun
Laura J. Gifford | Newberg, OR USA | 09/15/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"My 2.5-year-old daughter adores George the "funny monkey"--his adventures are gentle and well-drawn. One of the aspects of the program I like best, however, is that each animated segment is followed by a live-action segment showing elementary school-aged kids participating in some activity related to the story. Balance concepts, for example, after a story of George and a high wire act. This format adds an additional learning element to the stories, and recalling my own reactions as a child to kids slightly older than me doing neat things, they have an inspirational quality that I would hope encourages children to move beyond the televised stories and do their own experimentation."
Another Great Curious George DVD!

"Another GREAT Curious George DVD! My kids love these movies and really enjoy the stories and the little things that they watch kids learning in between segments! Really well done! We're looking forward to the next one!"
