Curiosity Deals the Sweets and Sweetens the Deal

First, in the City, Curious George shops for bargains with Betsy and Steve and their Aunt Margaret at a clearance sale, and then they carry their purchases along the City sidewalks, before deciding to stop into Mabel's Department Store, to purchase assorted chocolates at its candy counter.

But when Aunt Margaret decides that she should not carry her new chair into Mabel's, nor Curious George his large stuffed banana, Steve volunteers to stay outside to watch their purchases, and to play video games, while Curious George, Betsy and Aunt Margaret buy chocolates at the Candy Counter.

Now, after Cayley the Candy Counter Clerk, packages chocolates according to specifications by Aunt Margaret, Betsy and Curious George, she short-changes Curious George's order by two pieces, causing Curious George to return into Mabel's Department Store, to report the mistake to Cayley the Candy Counter Clerk.

Well, Cayley the Candy Counter Clerk needs to procure more chocolate candies for her inventory, and so she asks Curious George to mind the Candy Counter during her absence, which is fine with Curious George because now he may stack the chocolate candies to form geometric shapes, such as the rhombus.

And, besides, what could possibly go wrong with Curious George behind the Candy Counter? Well, for one thing, Curious George knocks candy all over the place, trying to build a stack of candies into the shape of that rhombus. And for another, customers begin to pour into Mabel's Candy Department.

Now, when one customer asks to purchase a box of mint chocolates for his wife, Curious George begins to sample pieces to taste for the mint, and when a female customer in a hurry to catch her bus asks for eight pinks and four greens in two boxes, while a male customer asks for one black chocolate and one blue one, well, Curious George has already eaten halves of these, and then a customer with her son watches Curious George sampling more and asks for free samples, so many customers overhear her and line the counter for free treats.

But after everything's sold or given away, Cayley returns to discover that she's out of inventory again, and probably out of business....

Well, back at the apartment, the Man with the Yellow Hat says that he's never seen blue candy before when Curious George offers him a piece, but now Curious George is sad that Cayley the Candy Counter Clerk has little left to sell, so the Man with the Yellow Hat returns with Curious George to Mabel's Department Store, where Cayley asks Curious George for a hand to package chocolates because the customers continue to line up because of the promotional gimmick which he began.

So, will Curious George and the Man with the Yellow Hat be able to help to fill orders while Cayley the Candy Counter Clerk leaves to procure additional supplies, and will Curious George continue as a "Candy Counter" behind the "Candy Counter?"

-----

Next, also in the City, Compass the Doorman's Almost-Homing Pigeon stops by to visit Curious George upon the balcony of his apartment.

But when Curious George falls beneath a chair and catches his leg to lodge between the wire of the backrest, the Man with the Yellow Hat arrives to butter his ailing foot.

Well, Andie, Stig and Stew, Firefighter Members of Rescue Squad 86, arrive to rescue Curious George because his leg remains stuck after the buttering, so, in gratitude, Curious George draws an illustration of Andie, Stig, and Stew, Firefighter Members of Rescue Squad 86, with himself as their fan.

So, the Man with the Yellow Hat take Curious George with his drawing to show Rescue Squad 86, but, along the way, Betsy and Steve tell them that Charkie the black Cocker Spaniel has broken from his collar and leash and is missing.

Now, Curious George decides to stay with Andie, Stig and Stew, Firefighter Members of Rescue Squad 86, where Curious George responds to the call to report that the missing Charkie the black Cocker Spaniel has climbed onto the branches of a tree, where he is stranded and must now be rescued, but Andie, Stig, nor Stew, realize that Charkie the black Cocker Spaniel belongs with Betsy and Steve, and so they return with him to Rescue Squad 86.

Well, during rescue practice, Curious George and Charkie the black Cocker Spaniel interfere with the objectives of Rescue Squad 86, by climbing onto props, and redirecting their water hose.

But, from Museum of Science, Professor Wiseman calls to report that Compass the Doorman's Almost-Homing Pigeon has gotten caught inside the whale suspended beneath the glass dome, and cannot free himself, so Curious George and Charkie the black Cocker Spaniel respond with Andie, Stig and Stew, Firefighter Members of Rescue Squad 86, to arrive at Museum of Science.

So, who would be able to climb to rescue Compass the Doorman's Almost-Homing Pigeon from the whale suspended beneath the dome, and to return Charkie the black Cocker Spaniel to Betsy and Steve without the assistance of "Curious George, Rescue Monkey?"
