First, in the City, Curious George finally discovers a game of catch which Hundley the Doorman's Dachshund would play, but Hundley would rather protect the lobby from the ball's entering. But, when the Doorman enters the lobby, and so does the ball, and rolls onto the elevator, Curious George enters to locate it, while Hundley scratches his collar off his neck.

But, when Hundley the Doorman's Dachshund loses his collar into a drain, Gwen carries him to City Pound, thinking that he's lost, causing Curious George to become alarmed to discover that Hundley has been confiscated and detained at City Pound, where Curious George follows Gwen and Hundley.

Now, when Gwen and Sisly, respective White and Black women who work at City Pound, tend to Hundley, without a clue that he's the Doorman's Dachshund, they imprison him into a double-bolting cage, onto a stack with cages containing many other dogs, cats and various animals. (This heartbreaking segment would work much better if Hundley were the only City Pound prisoner, but there are quite a few other unfortunate pets' pleading for release, which, of course, reduces entertainment value.)

Then, Curious George sneaks into City Pound to attempt to rescue Hundley the Doorman's Dachshund, but cannot unlock the cage, causing Gwen and Sisly to discover him, deciding that this lost monkey is cute, but they are unable to detain him once he cleverly sneaks away from City Pound.

Well, Curious George doesn't know where the Doorman nor the Man with the Yellow Hat went, so now he needs a plan to rescue Hundley the Doorman's Dachshund, by creating a diversion to catch Gwen and Sisly off guard, and to unlock Hundley's cage somehow, so Curious George needs a team of experts and recruits Gnocchi, Chef Pisghetti's pet Cat, and Charkie the black Cocker Spaniel, the Dog escape artist, to fill the bill. (Charkie, Aunt Margaret, Betsy and Steve alternate between house and apartment and must reside back at the house with the yard and the gate this time around because Curious George unlocks the gate to free Charkie.)

And then, Curious George suspends a feather from a rope, which he attaches to the branch of the tree on the front lawn of City Pound, for Gnocchi, Chef Pisghetti's pet Cat, to reach, while Curious George sneaks Charkie the black Cocker Spaniel into the City Pound Dentention Room to attempt to break into the cage of Hundley the Doorman's Dachshund.

But the plan backfires when Gwen and Sisly capture Gnocchi, Chef Pisghetti's pet Cat, to imprison her, as well, in a different cage alongside Hundley the Doorman's Dachshund! Curious George must now attempt to disguise himself as the Cleaning Lady in order to implement the next phase of his undercover mission.

So, how could Curious George and Charkie the black Cocker Spaniel now be able to rescue Gnocchi, Chef Pisghetti's pet Cat, and to "Free Hundley?"

-----

Next, also in the City, when Curious George tends to all of the clutter inside his room, by squeezing everything inside of his closet, the Man with the Yellow Hat initially congratulates Curious George, or at least until Curious George's closet door swings open, and the clutter lands all over the floor once again.

Now, the Man with the Yellow Hat suggests that Curious George obtain fruit crates from the Market to organize his toy collection, and so Curious George accompanies the Man with the Yellow Hat to the Market, where Grocer and Son of Grocer discuss Son of Grocer's signing for the Bag-A-Lympics competition, showing Curious George how to pack merchandise into brown paper bags neatly, trying to beat record time according to the Grocer's stop-watch.

Then, Rodney the competitor's Bagboy steps into the Market doorway to bully Son of Grocer and Curious George regarding their packing technique, and saying that he will win the Bag-A-Lympics competition, especially after Son of Grocer suffers an arm injury and must be treated by Doctor Baker, who says that it's a sprain, applies a splint and bandage to Son of Grocer's arm, and says that he should be as good as new after a week's time.

And then, Curious George finds himself in a difficult spot because the competition is scheduled for tomorrow, and Curious George qualifies to participate in the Bag-A-Lympics competition, after working as a grocer himself once before, but can Curious George measure up to Son of Grocer, who has become an expert bagger? And what about Rodney the competitor's Bagboy and his constant teasing and bullying?

Well, as he paces the sidewalks, Curious George observes Sidewalk Boys piecing together a jigsaw puzzle and figures that bagging grocers in the optimal manner ought to seem comparative, and so Curious George completes his training in time for Bag-A-Lympics to begin.

But, when Grocer, Son of Grocer and the Man with the Yellow Hat enter the cheering stands once they usher Curious George to Bag-A-Lympics competition, and other contestants begin to break eggs and other products, and some of their bags begin to break, Bag-A-Lympics Official narrows the field of contestants to Rodney the competitor's Bagboy of Endless Park Avenue 14, and Curious George, representing End Avenue Market.

So, who will manage to complete the grocery bagging contest successfully, to secure the coveted Golden Paper Bag Trophey? Rodney the competitor's Bagboy? or "Bag Monkey?"
