Curiosity Winds the Strings and Strings the Winds
4 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First, in the City, as the Man with the Yellow Hat repaints Endless Park's stone angel statue, a wind gust blows his Yellow Hat, before Curious George retrieves it from a tree, where Curious George notices a spider web's spanning branches. The Man with the Yellow Hat explains the spider web to Curious George, who discovers additional spider webs' lining leafless trees and shrubbery.

Now, Curious George wonders why if a spider can spin webs to capture food, then why can't he make a monkey web in order to catch monkey food, as flying produce if a bicycle delivery boy hits a bump in the sidewalk, and Curious George's monkey web's catches his flying fruit?

Well, Curious George decides to tape threads across the apartment walls. But the Doorman and Hundley the Doorman's Daschund arrive to ask Curious George to take tarps to Endless Park to protect stone angel statue from the forthcoming storm. But chaos soon ensues, as Hundley enters to become entangled in Curious George's monkey web.

Then, the Doorman retrieves tarps from the basement, while Curious George frees Hundley and decides to apply rubber gum bands to create a stronger second monkey web. At Curious George's urging, Hundley bounces across the rubber band monkey web, as do Curious George's apples, which fly through the lobby into the streets when tossed onto the rubber band monkey web.

And then, Curious George decides to create a third monkey web, on the balcony, using twine, but would fruit stick to this? Well, Curious George decides to apply honey to the twine, before taping it to the downstairs hallway by the door of the lady who's returning from marketing, carrying a basket of fruit and vegetables.

But her produce doesn't stick to the web, nor the sandwich which the lady tosses to Curious George, and neither does Curious George because he's too heavy. A female passerby comments that maybe Curious George ought to leave web-making to the spiders.

Well, the Doorman sends Curious George to Endless Park as the thunderstorm erupts, he carrying the tarp and two roles of extra-strong tape to hand to the Man with the Yellow Hat, who offers Curious George one role, and so Curious George gets the idea create his fourth monkey web with the extra roll of extra strong tape.

Yet, when a male pedestrian carries his grandfather's collection of priceless antique postcards to the museum, the wind blows the tarp, which flies from the statue to cover the pedestrian, who loses his grandfather's collection of priceless antique postcards to the wind, and all is lost unless Curious George's fourth monkey web is able to catch them before the rains begin to pour.

So, do you think that Curious George will be able to save the day, to protect the pedestrian's grandfather's collection of priceless antique postcards, as well as his fourth monkey web plus various spider webs, and to protect himself and the Man with the Yellow Hat from the downpour, to the design of "Curious George, Web Master?"


Next, in the Country on a crisp, autumn day, Curious George decides to join Bill the Country Neighbor Boy on a fishing expedition, but the Man with the Yellow Hat suggests for Curious George to bundle into his cap and jacket because of the chilly autumn winds.

Well, Bill and Curious George tolerate the winds for a while, and then abandon their fishing activity because the chilly weather becomes too unbearable. Bill then explains about bear hibernation along their way back to their dwellings.

Now, the Man with the Yellow Hat polishes his tuba back at the Country residence, when Curious George returns to fill himself with plenty of food in order to prepare for winter hibernation, as would the bear family.

Then as the Man with the Yellow Hat continues to polish his tuba, Curious George retreats into his room to attempt hibernation, but he finds himself unable to fall asleep because the daylight hasn't turned to darkness, and so Curious George decides to tape a poster across his window, but the poster doesn't cover the panes of glass, leaving in too much daytime moon brightness. But how do bears do it? wonders Curious George

And then, Curious George asks the Man with the Yellow Hat how sleep works for teddy bears, meaning real bears, and so the Man with the Yellow Hat explains that bears eat plenty, before retreating to their dark, quiet caves, and this is really all that Curious George wants to know, before rushing back upstairs to add rocks to his bed.

But when a new dog's barking outside keeps Curious George awake, he decides to offer it peanut butter because peanut butter quiets Charkie the Black Cocker Spaniel. But then a herd of Renkins' cattle begin to moo along with their pigs and chickens, which, once again, enlivens the dog's barking.

So, Curious George again retreats into his cave, to tape a blanket over the sheet over the poster over his window panes in order to keep it as dark and as quiet as possible.

Yet, when the Man with the Yellow Hat practices his tuba, Curious George stomps downstairs with his pillow to stuff into the bell of the tuba!

Now, Curious George decides to sleep for six months through winter and into springtime, but he awakens to discover nothing growing outdoors. And the Man with the Yellow Hat decides to retrieve winter equipment from the closet, which tumbles all over the Man with the Yellow Hat and slides him across the room into Curious George, who observes all of the winter equipment, which he has forgotten about.

So, will Curious George have second thoughts about hibernating through the winter, thus taking the chance to miss out on all of the fun of hiking, sledding and skiing in favor of "The Big Sleepy?"
