    Format: DVD
    My 4-year-old preschooler has loved Curious George since she was 2, and we have almost all the episodes. This DVD has a running time of about 1 hr 45 mins and contains 8 episodes, i.e.
    "Curious George Takes a Vacation" - George and the Man with Yellow Hat go on a vacation but are delayed at the airport where George has an adventure of his own.
    "Unbalanced" - George is inspired to do acrobatics in the circus
    "The Times of Sand" - there's a sandcastle contest at the beach and George puts his skills to the test
    "Curious George takes a Dive" - George finds a turtle and decides to bring it home, where the turtle isn't quite comfortable.
    "Curious George, Sea Monkey" - George has an underwater adventure when he explores a coral reef
    "Curious George Sees Stars" - George tries to keep count of all the stars in the sky
    "Curious George and the Missing Piece" - George finds a bone in the ground and is convinced it is a dinosaur bone, and tries digging up more bones to piece the skeleton together.
    "Castle Keep" - George and the Man with the Yellow Hat go to Scotland where George goes on a wild goose chase looking for his golf ball.

    Besides the fun episodes there are also bonus features such as the star shapes game, DVD-ROM feature: Printable Coloring Pages and Connect-the-Dots.

    Format: DVD
    I remember the Curious George books pretty well from my own childhood, so when I first saw this animated series, I was skeptical. Would it be as fun and educational as the original books? The answer surprised me ... it's BETTER!

    The DVD consists of a series of short segments that are perfect for toddlers AND their parents. Each episode is full of humor. Your three-year-old may not get all the jokes, but you will! Each focuses on a specific concept: balance, coral reefs, leverage, and even paleontology. Each has a positive, pro-curiosity, pro-science message. There is a brief "reality" segment at the end, where a group of real children expand on the concepts presented in the cartoon segments. Both the animation and the background music are first-rate.

    I can't even put my two-year-old to bed nowadays without at least a few episodes of "Cur George." He loves it, and ... yes, I'll admit it ... I think it's fun too.

    My 2.5-year-old daughter adores George the "funny monkey"--his adventures are gentle and well-drawn. One of the aspects of the program I like best, however, is that each animated segment is followed by a live-action segment showing elementary school-aged kids participating in some activity related to the story. Balance concepts, for example, after a story of George and a high wire act. This format adds an additional learning element to the stories, and recalling my own reactions as a child to kids slightly older than me doing neat things, they have an inspirational quality that I would hope encourages children to move beyond the televised stories and do their own experimentation.

    I purchased this DVD for my 4 year old son. He absolutely LOVES Curious George so naturally it has been a great gift. I found that Curious George is teaching my son a few very random interesting things too. It has been almost 20 years since I was in school so I also find myself learning a few things which is fun and exciting. Curious George is always a great conversation anytime with my son! FOUR THUMBS UP!!!!

    My two year old daughter is obsessed with Curious George and all the dvd's that are available in the series, except the one about being scared of the dark. I believe that scary episode is on "Rocket ride". All the other George Dvd's including this one are really great for young children.

    Another GREAT Curious George DVD! My kids love these movies and really enjoy the stories and the little things that they watch kids learning in between segments! Really well done! We're looking forward to the next one!

    Format: DVD
    As a child I couldn't get enough of George. I would check out as many of the books as I was allowed to and had a stuffed George that wore a red sweater with his name on it. I could never bring myself to give the stuffed George away and now I am even more glad that I didn't.
    My almost three year old daughter loves George just as much, if not more, than I did. She keeps asking for us to turn the TV to the cartoon all morning until it is on and wants to watch the DVD I just bought her all the time. If I let her, she'd probably watch it all day long. She can't get enough of George and I've found myself falling in love with him all over again.
    This DVD is the only one we currently own but I love it! George is just too cute and the trouble he gets himself into is typical of a child. I was so excited when I read in TV Guide that PBS was making a series based on the books but never got around to watching it until recently. I think my daughter loves George because she is so much like him. They are both little trouble-making monkeys. I plan on buying my daughter more of these DVD's until she grows out of them or they stop making them.

    This is a fun dvd and my nephews who are 2 and 3 years old, really enjoyed watching it! I would suggest this for a younger group of children.
