    5.0 out of 5 stars Good Children's Entertainment September 19, 2007
    By David
    My wife and I do not favor much television for children, but there are times it is suitable. Our two-year old is simply wild about this Curious George series. It is not only entertaining, but CG solves problems and learns things in each episode, that the child can learn with him, so his parents are wild about it, too! From the lessons to the voices to the animation -- even the theme music -- all is very well done. Highly recommended.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Curious George, what's not to like May 6, 2007
    Verified Purchase
    This is one of those children's series that I can actually watch with the kids and laugh right along with them. I like this version much better than the older claymation which we also own, but more importantly, the kids like it and will watch it over, and over and.......

    1.0 out of 5 stars BE CAREFUL OF THE "DARK" EPISODE! November 6, 2007
    By Unlucky
    My 2 1/2 year old son loves Curious George and we already owned the Zoo Night DVD so when this came out it seemed like a no brainer. Unfortunately, once he saw the "Dark" video our lives were turned upside down. He became afraid of the dark and monsters. He was truly petrified at bedtime to the point of being almost hysterical. It took about 5 or 6 weeks (and numerous books, conversations with his pediatrician and calls to other moms) but he is finally sleeping through the night! All of this because of the "Dark" episode on this video. I had to tell my son the garbage man came and took this dvd and crushed it and took it to the landfill. I only gave it one star because even if the other episodes are fine it is not worth the pain it caused us.

    3.0 out of 5 stars I was dissapointed July 17, 2007
    I was dissapointed with one of the episodes on this DVD which was "George in the dark". My 3 years old never had any problems sleeping in the dark until he saw this movie. It teaches little children to be afraid of the dark instead of teaching them to be brave and get over fears they could have.

    Since my son watched that movie it has been a nightmare for all of us when is bedtime. I think people should be a little more carefull when they are managing a little child's mind.

    5.0 out of 5 stars so cute and still a classic September 11, 2007
    Verified Purchase
    I Have to sons who are 6 and 5. I love watching this monkey with my boys. They laugh so loud and hard sometimes. The makers of Curios George Have a great product, it's both fun and educational. Perfect match for growing kids, not boring or stupid as some kid shows. Also no annoying songs.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Very fun epsodes! November 29, 2007
    I got this DVD for my 2 year old. He loves it! It is true that everytime the "afraid of the dark episode" shows he wants to be close to me, but he actually asks to watch it sometimes. If you are the kind of parent that do not select the "play all the episodes" button and previews the DVD's, you can skip that one. The episodes in general are very creative and fun and it is worth the money. So I would say: Don't miss all the other good episodes because of the dark one, you can always skip that, plus it is a very cheap DVD for the entertainment. My son really loves it!

    5.0 out of 5 stars how can you not love curious george?? September 16, 2007
    I loved reading the Curious George books when I was a kid. I was thrilled when i found out that it was coming to pbs.

    I liked the movie, but I really LOVE this animated series. My kids really enjoy watching this and I watch it along with them. It really is a great series and I was impressed the first time I saw it last September (2006).
