5.0 out of 5 stars a good little monkey February 10, 2009
Format:DVD
This nicely priced boxed set contains four DVDs that have been sold separately for $16.98 each ($12.98 at Amazon). Each disk is in the original case. The disks are Curious George: Zoo Night and Other Animal Stories!; Curious George Plays in the Snow and Other Awesome Activities!; Curious George: Takes a Job and More Monkey Business!; Curious George: Rocket Ride and Other Adventures! Each disk has eight episodes.

From what I've seen, many of these have not been shown on PBS for at least the past 6 months. We watch Curious George a lot at my house and they seem to run the same few episodes over and over again. So, this boxed set is not only a bargain--it's a relief! The running time for the four disks, according to the box, is 7 hours and 14 minutes.

Can a Monkey Collection, Volume II be far behind?

4.0 out of 5 stars My son LOVES this set! March 12, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My son is obsessed with Curious George and absolutely loves this set of DVDs. It is so nice because he can watch one at a time and go through all 32 before he has to have a "re-run!" Very nice quality and definitely worth the price. I hope they come out with a Monkey Collection Vol. 2!! We will be purchasing it if it does become available!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Educational and Entertaining DVD set June 14, 2009
Format:DVD
All of my grandkids cover a wide age range, but they all seem to enjoy the Curious George DVDs. For a monkey that doesn't talk, George conveys a lot of teaching in each of his lessons. I liked purchasing this set, Curious George Monkey Collection Volume 1, that features 32 shows in a nice boxed set...no commercials, and I can preview the DVD before the kids see it. My toddler grandchild is going through a "fussy stage" when her mother leaves for work. I gave her a Curious George stuffed animal to hold, and popped in this DVD set and she immediately quieted down and has been distracted ever since!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Collection April 1, 2009
Format:DVD
My children, ages ranging 2 - 7, cannot put this collections of movies down. They have watched them repeated over and over during their allotted movie time. They have been watching Curious George now for probably 3 weeks straight. They never seem to get tired of this michievious little monkey.

5.0 out of 5 stars Indispensable! September 13, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My wife and I are careful about what and how much TV we let our daughter watch. Curious George is one of the few shows we're very happy to let her watch and, together with Clifford, have become my daughter's favorite shows. The sheer number of episodes that come in this amazing collection is staggering, considering how inexpensive it is. You're literally getting hours and hours of Curious George. Great for long car/plane trips and vacations. We've bought Clifford and Dora collections, but this Curious George collection is by far my favorite and my daughter's favorite. We picked it up while she was still 2 years old. She just turned 3 and still requests it. She never gets tired of them. My only word of caution is the "cave" episode deals with being afraid of the dark and that things can look scary in the dark. Although watching the episode didn't frighten my daughter, it did heighten her awareness about the dark and probably accelerated her discomfort with it. So depending on the age of your child and their personalities, it's the one episode I would be extra cautious about. Otherwise, I can honestly say this is the best collection of shows, and possibly one of the best educational shows out there, and I highly recommend it. I only wish there was a volume 2 out there now!

5.0 out of 5 stars Educational and entertaining! July 11, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My daughter loves these videos and I enjoy watching them with her. After each episode is a little lesson with real children doing experiments and activities related to what they have just seen. I am thrilled with these and will buy other Curious George DVDs.

5.0 out of 5 stars 4 pack a bargain May 22, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Curious George: Monkey Collection, Vol. 1
My grandson is almost two and walks in my door every morning saying "Want George?" After a few days of constant pleas, I logged on to Amazon.com to choose a DVD. The 4 pack was perfect and a good value. Thirty-Two episodes allows me to put one DVD on in the bedroom to play continually. Each day we can watch a new DVD and enjoy George nonstop. Educational and amusing-we love it!

4.0 out of 5 stars great set; cheaper if you buy each dvd individually, at least right...
After I bought this set, I was curious and just priced out each dvd individually. They were all about $5/DVD. So, depending on the price you might not want to buy the set. Read more

One DVD is completely inoperable. But my son loves CG so much I haven't sent the whole set back. I am sad we're missing 1/4 of the episodes.
