Curiosity Creates an Orchestration and Ochestrates a Creation

First, in the City, Andie, Stig and Stew, Firefighter members of Rescue Squad 86, prepare for their Annual Band Concert, as they welcome Curious George and the Man with the Yellow Hat during a practice session. Curious George must covers his ears to ward off the squeaky noise because Andie, Stig, Stew and the Man with the Yellow Hat did not have enough time to warm up yet.

Now, when Curious George distracts practice, by playing with a tambourine, Andie, Stig and Stew politely ask Curious George to play elsewhere, and so he decides to start his own band, while the Man with the Yellow Hat remains, explaining his tuba as a delicate instrument, when Curious George later tries to play with it.

Well, back in the lobby of Apartment Building 7, Curious George decides that Doorman's ring of keys sounds like a tambourine, and so he runs upstairs to his apartment to collect keys to insert into something to sound musical, when the Man with the Yellow Hat notices that he needs the hall closet key and offers Curious George instruments with recycling materials.

Then Curious George and the Man with the Yellow Hat wash future instruments from the recycle bin, before Curious George collects wooden spoons and a jar of rice, before Curious George applies rubber bands to empty plastic container, before Curious George attaches string to a hub-cap, before Curious George pours rice into cardboard cartons, before the Man with the Yellow Hat realizes that they're out of rice.

And then Curious George rushes downstairs to rummage through the Doorman's lost and found box, to find plastic toys, Hundley the Doorman's Dachshund's biscuits, Gnocchi, Chef Pisghetti's Cat's treats and Compass the Doorman's Almost-Homing Pigeon's bird seed.

But now that Curious George has designed his instruments, he needs musicians to play them. So, Curious George recruits Hundley the Doorman's Dachshund, Charkie the black Cocker Spaniel, Gnocchi, Chef Pisghetti's pet Cat, and Compass the Doorman's Almost-Homing Pigeon, to practice upon the rooftop, but the pets seem to prefer treats to playing instruments and begin to scramble for them.

And when Compass, Gnocchi, Hundley, Charkie and Curious George make so much noise that bystanders along the sidewalk below contact the Fire Department, Andie, Stig and Stew, Firefighter members of Rescue Squad 86, arrive upon the rooftop, where Curious George tries to explain that he has been trying to form a band.

So, which of these five instrumentalists will Andie, Stig and Stew, Firefighter members of Rescue Squad 86, and the Man with the Yellow Hat recruit to perform with them from among Compass the Doorman's Almost-Homing Pigeon, Gnocchi, Chef Pisghetti's pet Cat, Hundley the Doorman's Dachshund, Charkie the black Cocker Spaniel and Curious George, who comprise "The All Animal Recycled Band?"

Next, in the Country, Curious George decides that the Country house is a great little place, but what would it be like to have a great big place, like a Country castle?

Well, the Man with the Yellow Hat finds an old photograph album to show Curious George, which includes a picture of himself as the Boy with the Yellow Hat at the beach, and so the Man with the Yellow Hat suggests for Curious George and him to travel to beach.

Now, along the way, Curious George draws castle architectural plans, and upon their arrival, Curious George continues to draw, as the Man with the Yellow Hat sets up their belongings to enjoy an afternoon at the beach.

Then, Curious George dreams of impressing the Man with the Yellow Hat, by building a grand sand castle as he challenges the Man with the Yellow Hat to construct separate sand castles. The Man with the Yellow Hat explains that Curious George needs a pail and shovel, before stationing themselves on either side of a sand dune. (A Goof occurs during the dream sequence, as the Man with the Yellow Hat's bare feet suddenly procure sandals.)

And then, Curious George draws floor-plans in the sand, along with a fire exit in case of emergencies, and now he attempts to build a wall, but the sand doesn't cooperate. It, instead, spills all over the place.

But Bill the Country Neighbor Boy arrives from nowhere with Ma Rabbit, who kicks plenty of sand, before Bill explains that sand mixed with water is better for building than just plain sand. So, Curious George collects wet sand to form a sand bunny, and decides that this wet sand works better for constructing a castle, as well.

Yet, when Curious George walks behind the dune to invite the Man with the Yellow Hat to see his sand bunnies, the tide has by now swept in and erases everything, covering the rock upon which Curious George has placed his book, pail and shovel. So, the Man with the Yellow Hat explains that the tides wash away Curious George's sand bunnies, while Bill explains that Ma Rabbit has burrowed through the Man with the Yellow Hat 's sand castle.

So, instead of leaving disappointed, shall Curious George, Bill and the Man with the Yellow Hat all join forces to pull together to construct a sand castle? And will Curious George feel content to leave the sand castle at the beach when it's time for Curious George to return with the Man with the Yellow Hat to the Country house after "The Times of Sand?"
