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?
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

He ruins everyone's Christmas trees and still is rewarded with a hucking fuge assortment of toys.
This movie can go straight to hell but the kids love it and the soundtrack is alright so 5 stars for keeping my kids quiet for awhile.
As a father, I like that these books haven’t been updated, reimagined, or edited to remove the politically incorrect parts. Like in his first book. It’s ok that George sometimes gets thrown in jail for his bad behavior (teaches kids to be responsible for their own actions) and that he occasionally has an after dinner smoke with a pipe before bed. Wait... what?? Well maybe that part could be altered to a bubble pipe. My kids did notice that one and I did tell them it was a bubble pipe and George was just learning and that’s why his “bubbles” looked like black smoke. But again, that’s not in this book.
Here is a charming tale of George making a Christmas list that initially confounds the man in the Yellow Hat. Disappointing George in the process.
That is until the Man in the Yellow Hat thinks like a monkey and finally “gets” what is in George’s very clever list. Now I won’t ruin the ending, but it is sweet and lets George know that he is loved by his new family.
Then we ran across Curious George and were relieved. No agendas, no politically correct subject matter, no illogical logic. The first time we watched one it was like taking your shoes off after a long walk on a summer day...aaahhhh.
To top it off, each DVD only costs around $10. I ended up buying 10 different titles and have been happy with every one...thus I will copy and paste this review on each one of them.
This is one happy dad who loves that annoying monkey.
The bonus CD contains 9 absolutely unremarkable Christmas vocal standards:
The twelve days of Christmas
We wish you a merry Christmas
Deck the halls
Hark! The herald angels sing
Joy to the world
Here we come a-wassailing
O come, all ye faithful
Windows Media Player identifies the disc as "A Very Gilly Christmas" by Saturday Night Live but, alas, that is incorrect.
Pick up the DVD used and you'll be just fine.
The songs are cute, and everything blends in well with the Curious George television series.

Lovers of this little monkey George should enjoy his antics.
But be aware that you'll be stuck with "Christmas monkey, Christmas monkey..." in your head! :-)
