Movie Reviews

TV show trumps movie -- again
David J. Neal | Miami Beach, Florida United States | 07/01/2007

"Don't confuse tbis DVD with the movie "Curious George," which comes in a similar DVD case. These are episodes from the far superior TV show. Not that the movie isn't worth your time and money. This is just so much more so.

The product lives up to the credits: Dr. John on the swinging theme song; Ron Howard and Brian Glazer executive producing; and William H. Macy, who makes the most of any role he assumes, as narrator.

There's an urban, downtown quality to these episodes, from being drawn in the manner of classic New Yorker cartoons to the jazzy soundtrack, extending even to the live action suffixes in which a group of young kids further delving into some element in the episode. Even when they're in a rural setting, you get the feeling these kids aren't suburban spawn.

George comes off as a monkey-fied human preschooler, one of the many elements with which the writers have fun (one character calls George "a city kid"). The Man in The Yellow Hat, though often in the stereotypical Long-Suffering Parent supporting role, manages to be more than a two-dimensional character. Watch these episodes and the ones that still air on PBS and you'll learn of a full cast of characters, only a couple of which could be called "cardboard."

It's always a good morning when my daughter wants to watch, "Monkey George.""
Great for little boys to keep them occupied!

"my little just turned 2 and still loves the monkey! I love the DVDs because they last longer than the ones on TV and keeps him more occupied. This DVD helped him understand when we were going to the Zoo! The episodes on this set are

Zoo Night
Curious George's Bunny Hunt
Bee is for Bear
Curious George's Home for Pigeons
From Scratch
Curious George, Dog Counter
Squirrel for a Day
Curious George Discovers the Poles"
Good DVD if you are a Curious George fan

"My [...] son is a huge fan of the Curious George cartoons on PBS Kids. I wanted to get him a DVD with several episodes when he needs a "George fix", but didn't want the old cartoons. This DVD filled the bill. It has 8 episodes to keep him entertained. We are excited about the new DVD to be released in May."

"The PBS series is so well done. The educational aspects are nicely wrapped in a very entertaining and endearing story. The nice thing is that each story is different so it doesn't suffer the boring repetitive fate of Dora the Explorer. George's innocent curiosity is so like many young kids. I also like that the language is not street slang or sarcastic. Zoo nights is absolutely adorable and animnated with great humor as is all the stories."
