Curiosity Mimics the Copy and Copies the Mimic
18 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First, in the City, Charkie the black Cocker Spaniel and Curious George play outside of Glass Palace, when Curious George learns that Mr. Glass consults with Curious George's upstairs neighbor, Mr. Zoobel, who also has a studio at the Zoo, where Mr. Zoobel takes Mr. Glass, Charkie and Curious George to observe his Art-producing operation.

Then, Mr. Glass decides to purchase a unique painting to hang in the lobby of Glass Palace, and so he commissions Mr. Zoobel, when Sue Burn, Mr. Zoobel's Pet Elephant, creates a floral arrangement painting containing a lavender flower with a sponge, which she holds with her trunk. Mr. Glass then hangs this unique painting in Glass Palace lobby.

But, when Mr. Glass and Mr. Zoobel return to the Zoo studio, Charkie pushes Curious George, causing Curious George to damage Sue Burn's painting, and then Curious George asks Sue Burn to make an exact copy, but she is unable to duplicate a unique painting, so Curious George discovers that he must recreate the canvas and dabble the palette of oils to copy Sue Burn's Art work.

Now, Curious George finds one problem in trying to draw a squiggly line along the canvas with his paintbrush; after all, Sue Burn stands much taller than Curious George, so she wouldn't face nearly the same problem. Plus, Curious George finds another problem in trying to figure a way to mix lavender paint from his palette of yellow, blue, red and white.

Well, Charkie the black Cocker Spaniel is on hand to try to play with Curious George, but when Curious George tries to tell her not to mess up his easel, Charkie the black Cocker Spaniel swishes her paw across the palette, mixing oil paint colors in the process, to form new colors.

So then, Charkie actually does Curious George a favor by swishing his palette because, this way, Curious George figures how to mix lavender paint, to complete the copy of Sue Burn's unique painting, for Mr. Zoobel to submit to Mr. Glass, who, after all, commissions one unique painting...that is, if Curious George is able to sneak the painting back into Glass Palace lobby before Mr. Glass is able to find out about the copy...or will he?

So, at the unveiling at Glass Palace, when Mr. Glass discovers two unique paintings, each containing lavender flowers, what will happen when Mr. Glass confronts Mr. Zoobel in front of an audience which includes the Man with the Yellow Hat, as he reveals Sue Burn and Curious George's unique paintings in the aftermath of "Color Me Monkey?"

-----

Next, also in the City, at Pisghetti's Restaurant, Curious George and the Man with the Yellow Hat play a "Wild Goose Chase" board game, counting squares to advance their players upon the rolls of dice. The Man with the Yellow Hat teaches Curious George one lesson in the process: when advancing your player, "you don't count the square upon which you start."

Now, when Netti Pisghetti approaches Curious George and the Man with the Yellow Hat to inform them that Chef Pisghetti has gone to launch a new business venture with important clients, regarding his new Primo Pisghetti Pie, she mentions that Chef Pisghetti has forgotten to take his Primo Pisghetti Pie, and now Netti needs help to look after Pisghetti's Restaurant, in order to deliver Chef Pisghetti's Primo Pisghetti Pie to his meeting across the City.

Well, Curious George volunteers to deliver Chef Pisghetti's Primo Pisghetti Pie so that Netti Pisghetti need not close Pisghetti's Restaurant, and so an appreciative Netti Pisghetti hands Curious George directions to the auditorium at which Chef Pisghetti addresses prospective clients...that is, if Curious George is able to get passed Gnocchi, Chef Pisghetti's Cat....

Then, when Betsy runs past, trying to control Charkie the black Cocker Spaniel along the sidewalk outside, Curious George nearly drops Primo Pisghetti Pie, so he must treat it very carefully because someone else nearly sits upon the pie box upon a bench. Plus, a taxicab splashes mud, and Curious George must protect the Pie plus a mother and baby upon a bench, and then there's all of that traffic regarding the bus.

And then, Curious George carefully carries Primo Pisghetti Pie onto the bus, to ride for three stops, before exiting before a triple mermaid fountain, and then walking three buildings to Building 333, to climb to its third floor, and to walk three doors down. So, Curious George must remember three stops, for Third Avenue, triple mermaid fountain, three buildings to Building 333, third floor, and three doors down the hallway.

But, along the way, Curious George somehow forgets not to count the starting point as his first stop, and so he mistakingly disembarks at the second stop, considering that it's his third. Now, he suddenly remembers what the Man with the Yellow Hat has told him: "You don't count the square upon which you start."

And so, Curious George searches for Third Avenue and a triple mermaid fountain, but approaches a triple dolphin fountain, so that's close enough, probably, but then he sees a building with a blinking sign reading, "72, 3:25, 22," which he learns means "72 degrees f, 3:25 PM, and 22 degrees c." Oh, but Building 333 stands three buildings over, so Curious George decides that he could save a little lost time by scaling Building 333's exterior walls, instead of climbing its stairs.

So, as Building 333's Third-floor Receptionist directs Curious George to the third room down the hallway, will Curious George be able to deliver Chef Pisghetti's Primo Pisghetti Pie and be able to sample a serving before the audience which Chef Pisghetti addresses because, after all, Curious George serves as "Special Delivery Monkey?"
