Curiosity Banks the Float and Floats the Bank
5 April 2011 | by See all my reviews

First, in the City, Saturday's the perfect day for Curious George and The Man with the Yellow Hat to stand upon the dock, watching boats below, where they notice Hundley the Doorman's Daschund, who sails upon the Doorman's boat.

Now, back in the lobby, the Doorman explains to Curious George and The Man with the Yellow Hat how much Hundley loves to sail, so much so that the Doorman places a toy boat inside of Hundley's water dish to remind him, but then the toy boat sinks into Hundley's water basin.

Well, that evening, as the Doormand and Hundley watch "National Geometric Exploring" on television, the Black Hat Dessomay pirate vessel overtakes another ship, later causing Hundley to dream of captaining the S.S. Dignified, with the Doorman as his First Mate, as Charlie the Black Cocker Spaniel also serves as a mate, as well as Gnocchi, Chef Pisghetti's Cat.

But a new crewman comes aboard, that sloppy little Curious George, who spreads jelly upon the mast, and knocks a bucket of water across the deck to slip The Doorman, Hundley, Charkie and Gnocci in a most undignified manner, causing Curious George to end up in the brig, to keep Hundley's ship dignified, while Charkie and Gnocci clean the jelly from the mast.

Then the Doorman spots an undignified pirate ship, led by the Pirate with the Yellow Hat, and a crew who resembles Professor Wiseman, Chef Pisghetti, Betsy, Steve and an unidentified second African-American lady.

And then, the Pirate with the Yellow Hat and his crew overtake the S.S. Dignified, to exchange Hundley into the brig for Curious George, who spreads graffiti all over the S.S. Dignified sails, to the dismay of Captain Hundley, who helplessly observes.

But Curious George experiences a change of heart, and so he pounds holes into the side of the ship, before rescuing Captain Hundley from his cage, and transports Captain Hundley, Gnocchi, Charkie and the Doorman onto the undignified trip in order to sink the Pirate with the Yellow Hat, and his crew resembling Professor Wiseman, Chef Pisghetti, Betsy, Steve and the unidentified second African-American lady.

So, when Hundly awakens the next morning, the Doorman informs him that he has invited Curious George and The Man with the Yellow Hat onto their boat, but how do you suppose that Hundley will react to this unexpected information after "Curious George Sinks the Pirates?"

-----

Next, also in the City, Curious George and The Man with the Yellow Hat walk passed the window of Dulson's Toy Store, before entering to purchase banana snack bars.

Yet, inside, Curious George becomes excited to see that Mrs. Dulson displays a toy boat, which costs five dollars, but Curious George has only five cents remaining from his dollar-per-week allowance.

Now, back at the apartment, Curious George shows The Man with the Yellow Hat his savings, which he embeds into a stuffed animal plus his fish tank plus cardboard boxes embedded within one another, but to find a small amount consisting of a few more pennies.

Well, the Man with the Yellow Hat then purchases a piggy bank for Curious George to insert his ten pennies, and so the Man with the Yellow Hat offers him a nickel, to amass fifteen cents for his savings' bank.

Then, if Curious George saves his dollar allowance each week, perhaps, Curious George could manage to purchase the toy boat in five weeks.

And then, Curious George decides to launch into extra chores, to earn more than his one-dollar per week salary, but The Man with the Yellow Hat cannot pay him extra for things which he could do for himself, but yet, he offers Curious George twenty cents extra for his labors.

Yet, Chef Pisghetti, too, offers Curious George a few cents for assisting him and Nettie inside of their restaurant kitchen, before Curious George gets the idea to drum up money, by playing drums, horns and bells outside of Chef Pisghetti's Restaurant, which disturbs Chef Pisghetti, Nettie and Betsy, before Nettie gets the idea to offer Curious George four quarters for his noisy instruments.

But, when Curious George cannot manage to insert his fourth quarter, Betsy informs Curious George that his piggy bank is full. But how to open the piggy bank? Betsy offers him the use of her hammer, but has Curious George the heart to destroy his piggy bank? Or could Curious George and Betsy discover another way to remove the coins? Or has Charkie the Black Cocker Spaniel another idea as to how to retrieve Curious George's savings from his piggy bank?

So, how will Curious George manage to purchase his toy boat at Dulson's Toy Store if it means to destroy "This Little Piggy?"
