5.0 out of 5 stars Hours of earth-friendly parent approved fun July 1, 2009
This DVD is one of the best bargains around - it runs for an hour and 48 minutes with 8 full earth-friendly episodes to entertain your children while they learn how to take care of the planet:

The Perfect Carrot - George learns how to grow carrots but when a friend's bunnies go missing, he has to make a decision: the bunnies or the carrot?

Everything Old Is New Again - the city is awarding a prize to the building that collects the most recycling. George goes out of his way to win collecting recyclables, but doesn't realize they have to be used first!

Curious George and the Trash - George throw's out the Man's with the Yellow Hat's yellow hat by mistake. He learns about the city's garbage system while trying to recover it.

Much Ado About Nothing - George learns how to make compost - or so he thinks. Pretty soon every container around is filled with "compost".

George Digs Worms - George's prize worm accidentally ends up in the wrong box - he's off to find it before it's used as fish bait.

Seed Trouble - George learns how to plant a vegetable garden but mixes the seeds by mistake. Can he figure out which seeds grow which plants?

Ice Station Monkey - George is off to the Antarctic on a research mission with lots of penguins.

Shipwrecked With Hundley - The Man with the Yellow Hat, George, the doorman and Hundley go sailing but end up shipwrecked on an island. The Man and the doorman go off to explore and George and Hundley get lost. Will they be stuck on the island?

The episodes are suitable for children ages 2+ and contain valuable real-life lessons after each episode, as children learn how to make compost and how to cook with local produce, among others.

5.0 out of 5 stars No environmentalist indoctrination here! August 14, 2010
I wanted to create my own review after reading the lone 1-star review. This is not a Curious George recreation of "An Inconvenient Truth." There is no appearence from PETA. George doesn't attack whaling ships. Its just a bunch of great shows that incorporate themes related to the outdoors and gardening. All of the episodes are wonderfully done and great for all ages. Thanks PBS for making such an educational cartoon that is enjoyable to watch over and over!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value, interesting episodes. July 22, 2011
My daughter is a huge fan of Curious George and this seems to be a personal favorite of hers. The episodes are largely focused around sustainable concepts (recycling, agriculture, etc.). Some of the concepts are relayed at too elementary of a level (i.e. plastic bottles are recycled back into plastic bottles - which is largely not the case) and set a foundation for misconceptions, but overall the information is good. I have noticed that other comments have accused PBS of propagandizing a socialist agenda or some other such nonsense, but it's certainly not the case (unless agriculture and sustainable solid waste disposal are socialist concepts).

The value is great, at 108 minutes of quality children's programming that I don't have to worry about filtering, I was all about the price. My daughter is 21 months old and her vocabulary is amazing. I won't attribute it entirely to Curious George, but I found that she was far more responsive to the show as it uses actual dialog as opposed to the more linguistic abstractions that are found in other shows (i.e. Baby Einstein, Teletubbies, etc.). The shows are enough to capture the attention of a child at 18 months and feature enough variety to hold it for at least several months.

My grandchildren call him Monkey George and they watched the tape so much that they wore it out. This one is to replace the worn one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Love curious George, hate the US DVDs March 3, 2012
By JD
Verified Purchase
My son (& I ) love curious George. It's a great show & these episodes are no different. What I don't like are the US DVDs, they are rife with ads. In Australia we have limitations on kids ads so I was surprised they were on there at all, the UK versions I'd bought in the past did not. But the US ones have obnoxious ads for things like 'chunky cheese' (!) at the start. They also have educational snippets between episodes which are kind of OK, although a little seasame st for my tastes.

The UK DVDs have the same shows in a more pleasant format.

5.0 out of 5 stars We Love George!!! March 13, 2011
By B. Kirk
Great!! Great!!! Great!!!! What more can you say about this little monkey!! Our son watches all his Curious George videos over and over again and this one has some of his favorites on it. Learning made fun and enjoyable for the whole family. Even Grandma sits and laughs along with the video. Unlike many childrens video's these do not talk down or dumb down the story line is something to hold the attention of children of various ages. I recommend for ages 1 to 103!

My two year old grandson really likes this and is looking forward to spring and growing something. He already helps his parents recycle bottles and cans. This video is great reinforcement for good conservation habits.
