Curious George is curious about all kinds of things - he loves to explore, build and play. And when George dives in, he somtimes ends up with more than he can handle. But he always manages to pull himself out of any jam and sometimes even saves the day. Featuring 8 shows from the hit PBS KIDS TV series narrated by William H. Macy (Seabiscuit, Pleasantville), Curious George: Zoo Night and Other Animal Stories will entertain you over and over again.
In these eight PBS Kids Television episodes, Curious George's curiosity focuses on the animal world and takes him and the man with the yellow hat from the balcony of their city apartment to a house in the countryside. As George observes and interacts with everything from dogs, bunnies, bears, and bees to tadpoles, cats, squirrels, penguins, and pigeons, he learns about different animals and their distinct characteristics, preferred habitats, and growth and maturation while developing important skills like map reading, tracking, measuring, and sorting. Preschoolers love seeing their favorite H.A. and Margret Rey little monkey spring to life with the help of animation and are sure to be thoroughly entertained by George's cute antics and boundless curiosity.
