Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Christmastime is an exciting time of year, especially when you're a little monkey named Curious George. In fact, George is so excited about Christmas that he's been waking up the Man in the Yellow Hat at five in the morning ever since Thanksgiving! After setting up a chart to help George count down the days remaining until Christmas, the ever-patient Man in the Yellow Hat and George focus on enjoying Christmas preparations like picking and decorating a tree, making a Christmas list, and figuring out the perfect gifts for one another. George draws the Man in the Yellow Hat a picture of what he wants most for Christmas, but the Man in the Yellow Hat can't decipher the picture--nor can his good friends the scientist, doorman, or chef. George has lots of great ideas about what the Man in the Yellow Hat might enjoy for Christmas, but every time he sits down to make a gift, things just don't go right. As George and the Man in the Yellow Hat get more and more distraught over what to get one another for Christmas, the Ghost of Time Going Sideways visits the Man in the Yellow Hat and helps him realize just how important he and George are to one another. In the process, the Man in the Yellow Hat figures out the perfect gift for George, and, clever monkey that he is, George also thinks of a gift that will mean more to the Man in the Yellow Hat than anything else in the world. What could be better than a holiday story about everyone's favorite monkey and the joy of giving? (Ages 1 to 7) --Tami Horiuchi

Product Description

George and The Man with The Yellow Hat are having a very merry time counting down the days until Christmas. There’s only one puzzle: neither of them can figure out what to give the other for a present. The Man is having trouble reading George’s wish list and George doesn’t have a clue about what to get for The Man who has everything. Will they be able to find the answers before Christmas morning?

5.0 out of 5 stars Like The PBS Show November 11, 2009
By Muccdi
Format:DVD
Like the PBS show, it has the regular characters we have grown to love, with their respective voices. When The Man w/the Yellow Hat wants to help George write out his Christmas list, George presents him his list in the form of a drawing of shapes (circles, squares,triangles...). The Man w/the Yellow Hat labors over the list and can't figure out what George wants for Christmas. The Man w/the Yellow Hat sees how well the Doorman and Hundley work together and how Chef Pisghetti understands Gnocchi. The Man w/the Yellow Hat feels he doesn't really understand George, isn't a good monkey parent, and that maybe George would be better off with someone else. The Man w/the Yellow Hat dreams of the Ghost of Time Gone Sideways. He sees what it would be like if George was with the Doorman, Professor Wiseman, or Chef Pisghetti, instead of him. During the dream The Man w/the Yellow Hat figures out what George's list means and what he wants for Christmas.

During this time, George is trying to decide on the perfect gift to make for The Man w/the Yellow Hat. George's creations end in messes and disappointment until he figures out exactly what to give The Man w/the Yellow Hat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Christmas Entertainment for Little Kids January 4, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My son is three and loves this movie. He watched it over and over again. Same great characters as the PBS show, with a little something of the real spirit (though not the true meaning) of Christmas woven in. Recommend for any children who enjoy the PBS Curious George show. They will love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Year Round Entertainment! June 13, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
"Curious George: A Very Monkey Christmas". 2009 DVD

In December 2009, this DVD was purchased for Sophie, our granddaughter. The animated presentation had pretty scenes of a city in December snow, and a nice trip to the country to get a Christmas tree, and baking Christmas cookies and so many other Christmas traditions, all nicely animated.

But, now it is June 2010, and when we babysit Sophie (22 months old), she always selects the yellow case holding this DVD. So, of course, we have to play the animated movie for her, and our little girl dances to the song, "A Very Monkey Christmas", putting her arms in the air to follow the characters on the screen. She also tries to hum along with the initial Christmas song:

"Are you ready for Christmas Day to come?"
"Sing it with me, or if you're a monkey, `Hum'".

My wife, a retired school teacher, says that George the Monkey uses non-verbal communication, pointing at objects and making monkey sounds, which appeals to young children. When children are just learning to speak, they seem to be able to follow and enjoy the antics of George the Monkey. The colors, the songs and the plot probably will appeal to older children. As for me, I liked the portrayal of a city in a snowy December, and the method the Man In the Yellow Hat uses to instill some sense of patience in the little monkey. The songs are novel and interesting, and low enough so that an old grandfather can sing along. Watch the light decorations light up as George and The Man In The Yellow Hat walk away after they donate some bills to the Santa ringing the bell.
Nice touch!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great George DVD November 30, 2009
Format:DVD
This is a very touching dvd about Christmas and finding meaning in gift giving rather than giving just for the sake of giving.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Family Favorite! March 4, 2011
By J. Sais
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is, hands down, my 3 year old son's favorite movie. Christmas has long passed, and he still asks for Christmas George. The songs are cute, and the story line is very age appropriate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Curious George Rules! December 18, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'd recommend this for any Curious George fan.

Not too short, not too long. Just right!

Idea: Purchase with PJs, wrap in a shirt box with and add cocoa, snacks, and popcorn and let them open on Christmas Eve as a little treat.
