Toy Monkey (guest star Carol Burnett)

George is ecstatic. Great Aunt Sylvia dropped by with a special present – a toy front loader that’s…defective? No problem! Aunt Sylvia and George take the front loader back to the toy factory. But they find a room full of broken toys and no one to fix them. What will they do? With a hand drill, pickles, and a little ingenuity...anything is possible!

George and Allie’s Game Plan

It's "fair day" at the elementary school and Allie is determined to win the giant stuffed bear. But knocking down all the ducks is not as easy as it looks (or quacks). George builds a practice game at home complete with quacking sounds. Will Allie’s practice and perseverance help her win the bear? Educational Objective (Engineering): Using observation and problem solving skills to identify materials (both recycled and repurposed) appropriate for building a "replica."

Monkey Hoedown The Man with the Yellow Hat can’t wait to join the Uptown Bluegrass Band for a good old-fashioned country hoedown. When George accidentally ruins the Man’s guitar while trying to clean it, George and Allie decide to make a new guitar! With a shoestring, rubber band, fishing wire, and yoyo, George creates the world's first monkey birdhouse bandolin! 

Curious George Clowns Around

George and the Man with the Yellow Hat are excited to visit the Clown College for Pepe El Loco's Big Show. While the Man tries to find a parking spot, George is mistaken for a messenger clown and is tasked with picking up parts for a top-secret gadget for Pepe. While navigating his way through the building, will George figure out a way to keep track of what floor he’s on in time to make it to Pepe’s big show?

George’s Backwards Flight Plan

Help! Professor Wiseman is set to launch B.I.R.D., her bird migration tracking device, at sunset, but the remote control isn’t functioning properly. Up is down. Left is right. Off is on. Can George and Marco master the tricky remote control in time or will this B.I.R.D. be flying North for the winter?

Curious George, Hog Trainer

George and Allie are determined to help Howie the Hog win a blue ribbon at the state fair, but the portly pig doesn’t like to train for the competition. Once they figure out how to keep Howie clean, George and Allie use their creativity to find ways to keep Howie motivated and cool while exercising. Will Howie be in hog heaven this year and win the blue ribbon?
