Curiosity Pieces the Appropriate and Appropriates the Pieces
16 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First, in the Country, the Man with the Yellow Hat trains for his first outer space ride, by suspending himself upside down in space boots, hanging from a bar in his bedroom doorway, he asking Curious George not to touch anything, but when Curious George plays with the Man with the Yellow Hat's space boots, the bar falls, landing the Man with the Yellow Hat upon his back, and remarking, "Well, that's okay. I guess that I have to train for falling, too."

Now, at Space Center, Professor Wiseman, Professor Doctor Alvin Einstein and Professor Tony Pizza, Astrophysicists, prepare the Man with the Yellow Hat for his outer space mission to redirect their space telescope with an automated wrench and seven control blocks because the space telescope points back to Earth and, specifically, into Professor Pizza's apartment window, to reveal his baking cakes with his dog.

Well, Professor Wiseman announces that it's time to launch the rocket, when the Man with the Yellow Hat discovers there's no door knob to readmit him to the space capsule, and so, after they blame each another, an Astrophysicist announces that they'll scrap the mission... or at least until Curious George volunteers to accompany the Man with the Yellow Hat to open the door from within during the mission.

Then, after blast-off, Curious George and the Man with the Yellow Hat soar into outer space and soon float around the cabin. But when the Man with the Yellow Hat's space rock tether link rips from the Man with the Yellow Hat's belt, Professor Wiseman announces that they'll suspend the mission ...unless, of course, Curious George is able to unlock the telescope from its base because his tether remains intact.

And then, back on Earth, Bill the Country Neighbor Boy observes through his telescope from his Country house and discovers Curious George, who waves to Bill from outer space. "Wow, that City Kid really gets around," says Bill.

But then, another problem emerges when it is discovered that Curious George has enough air in his tanks to last merely two minutes! Professor Wiseman tells Curious George to complete the mission expeditiously, while the Man with the Yellow Hat threatens to go outside after him, but Professor Wiseman admonishes the Man with the Yellow Hat to stay inside the capsule lest he float into space!

So, will Curious George be able to complete his mission to place the correct three yellow cylinders and four green rectangular cubic objects into their proper compartments outside the space telescope, as "Grease Monkeys in Space?"

-----

Next, in the City, it's Happy Birthday Betsy time, as Betsy the City Neighborhood sister's birthday party launches into full swing with many of her friends gathering in the yard of her house this time. (In the last episode, she lives in an apartment.) Anyway, Curious George is there, playing with a bull ornament suspended from a tree, as Betsy explains that it's time to break it, but Curious George objects, until Betsy explains that it's a game with prizes hidden inside.

Now, brother Steve blindfolds Curious George, to swing a multi-colored baseball bat at the bull ornament, but then Curious George goes wild, smashing everything in sight, such as a lemon tree, the table and the birdhouse, as Aunt Margaret and Steve attempt to restore order.

Well, as Curious George continues to smash the place apart, Aunt Margaret asks Steve and Charkie the black Cocker Spaniel to cheer up Curious George, while Aunt Margaret ushers Betsy and her friends indoors to safety.

Then, Steve suggests that Curious George and Charkie the black Cocker Spaniel play follow-the-leader, with Curious George remaining blindfolded, and for Curious George to follow Charkie the black Cocker Spaniel, while Steve retrieves lemonade from inside, because Curious George can tell where Charkie the black Cocker Spaniel goes instinctively.

But, when Charkie the black Cocker Spaniel wanders into the City, Steve follows them, carrying the two glasses of lemonade, and then the Doorman points out the way which they went, as Charkie the black Cocker Spaniel leads Curious George into the Fire House of Rescue Squad 86.

Now, Andie, Stig and Stew, Firefighter members of Rescue Squad 86, discover that they must rescue the fire hose, which drenches the Fire House, once Curious George reaps his havoc there, as he has at Betsy's birthday party, before Curious George encounters Gnocchi, Chef Pisghetti's pet Cat, while blindfolded, leading Curious George into the kitchen at Pisghetti's Restaurant, where Chef Pisghetti and the Waitress meet the brunt of Curious George's blindfolded destruction, as pans of boiling pasta land upon the floor!

Yet, as Professor Wiseman and the Man with the Yellow Hat dine at Pisghetti's Restaurant, the Man with the Yellow Hat remarks, "Normally, if I heard crashing, I'd think it were Curious George, but he's at a party."

So, when Steve arrives at the Fire House, Andie, Stig and Stew, Firefighter members of Rescue Squad 86, point the way for Steve to locate Charkie the black Cocker Spaniel, who leads Curious George into Endless Park. But will Steve be able to return to Betsy's birthday party to discover Aunt Margaret's pointing out that Curious George has returned to try one more time to strike the ornamental bull? Then, what might happen this time when Curious George remains blindfolded with "Pinata Vision?"
