You know we are big fans of Curious George at our house. My kids think he is charming, and my husband and I love that George introduces kids to science, math and engineering concepts in a fun way.
On Monday, October 27th, the one-hour Halloween Special, Curious George: A Halloween Boo Fest, kicks off season 9 with a week of new episodes. The theme for season 9 is “The Five Senses,” and here are some details about the brand new episodes.
Submonkey/Double-Oh-Monkey Tracks Trouble
In Submonkey, George takes an undersea adventure in a monkey-sized submarine. This episode includes the song “Down, Down, Down,” performed by Belinda Carlisle (lead vocalist of the Go-Go’s).
In Double-Oh-Monkey-Tracks Trouble, George uses his super spy skills and all five of his senses to save the day.
Monkey Goes Batty/Curious George and the Balloon Hound
In Monkey Goes Batty, a hole in the roof means George and the Man with the Yellow Hat must sleep in the living room while their bedrooms are being repaired. Can George figure out a way to quietly find his way to the refrigerator in the dark without waking his friend?
Then, George and Hundley are amazed by all the flying machines at the museum’s aviation exhibit. Curious George and the Balloon Hound is full of aviation adventures.
George’s Photo Finish/Monkey Mystery Gift
George’s Photo Finish features the big unveiling of the Ankylosaurus dinosaur skeleton at the museum, but it’s missing a leg! How will George and the Man with the Yellow Hat save the day?
In the Monkey Mystery Gift, George and Allie’s imaginations run wild as they brainstorm about what could be in the large unmarked box on George’s doorstep. They will use their senses to guess and they may discover a surprise!
Sounds fun, doesn’t it?
Halloween week will also feature Halloween-themed episodes from other PBS KIDS shows like Dinosaur Train, Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, Wild Kratts and more. Check out the listings at PBS KIDS.
