Curiosity Studies the Plant Under Earth and Unearths the Plant Studies
23 September 2010 | by See all my reviews

First, in the Antarctic, Curious George spends his summer vacation in the frozen winter of Antarctica on Professor Wiseman's Antarctic Reasearch Team, to take photographs of penguins, and the mission for Curious George and the Man with the Yellow Hat would be to photograph the rare Chin Strap Penquin, which has not been seen on last year's Antarctic excursion.

Now, keep in mind that when summer hits Curious George's Country and City, winter surfaces on Antarctica, making it not only very cold but also very dark because sunlight does not reach below the Antarctic Circle during its winter months although for the sake of this episode, daylight is observed outdoors during its morning scenes for some reason or another.

Well, anyway, Professor Wiseman remains on Research Station Zebra Boat and sends Curious George and the Man with the Yellow Hat off to Ice Station Alpha overnight, along with their gear bags, video camera and radio microphone walkie talkies, to photograph the Chin Strap Penquin.

But the next morning, Curious George ventures away with the video camera, as Professor Wiseman notices a nesting ground of Emperor Penguin from her boat, and the Man with the Yellow Hat while encounters the Adelaide Penguin.

And, when Curious George falls through the snow along a mountain top and into a crevice, he lands near a flock of Chin Strap Penquins and begins to photograph them, when he slips and loses the video camera into the sea, but a friendly Seal emerges with the video camera's strap around its neck, and so Curious George radios the Man with the Yellow Hat, who follows the trail of Curious George, slips into the mountain crevice, and lands beside Curious George, before they walk across floating ice blocks, which begin to melt for another strange reason, and then they escape from a Humpback Whale to take refuge from the blizzard inside a cave, as they build igloo blocks to barricade themselves from the frigid storm.

So, will Curious George and the Man with the Yellow Hat be able to brave the frozen Antarctic blizzard overnight and somehow photograph the Chin Strap Penquin and somehow make it back to Ice Station Alpha for Research Station Zebra to rescue the Man with the Yellow Hat and "Ice Station Monkey?"


Next, in the Country, Curious George attempts to plant carrot seeds, by digging a pit outside the Country house, and tossing into it a package of carrot seeds, package and all, until the Man with the Yellow Hat reminds him that this is not the way the instructions tell you to plant carrots. And so, the Man with the Yellow Hat assists Curious George, by tilling the soil to plant a proper garden, before Curious George places his carrot seeds into the new garden.

Now, the next morning when a very disappointed Curious George discovers that the carrots didn't grow overnight, the Man with the Yellow Hat explains that the package instructions say to allow 66 days for the carrots to grow, and so when Curious George accompanies the Man with the Yellow Hat into the City each week, Bill the Country Neighbor volunteers to water the garden.

Well, on one return trip into the Country, Curious George discovers that his carrot garden has animal tracks by someone who has left a handful of acorns behind, and so Curious George tells Jumpy Squirrel not to trample through his carrot garden and posts a "no trespassing' notice for others to follow suit, after Curious George samples one of his three growing carrots but finds it too bitter to the taste and replants it.

And, after 66 days transpire, Curious George shows the Man with the Yellow Hat that it's time to harvest his three carrots, but when he pulls the first carrot, he discovers that it has grown awry and discards it. From the other end, he harvests the carrot which he has previously tasted, but discovers that it has also grown off course with a double root.

But the carrot in the middle looks just right with its large form, and so Curious George decides that this would be "The Perfect Carrot," and so he slides it into one of the Man with the Yellow Hat's boots, before he decides that he would not be able to carry it around, and then he borrows the Man with the Yellow Hat's telescope case to carry the carrot to show the Country neighbors, but Bill's Mother (who is not seen but heard) tells Curious George that Bill's Bunnies have escaped two days earlier, and that Bill is out searching for them.

So, Curious George carries the carrot in the telescope case, when he discovers bunny footprints leading into a cave, inside which he encounters five of Bill's Bunnies. Previously, Bill has seven Bunnies: Fuzzy, Whitey, Brownie, Spotty, Black Ears, Cotton Tail, and Herbert Nenninger, and there is no explanation as to why there are now five, but anyway, Curious George ponders a very difficult decision as to how to contain the five hungry Bunnies inside the cave even if it means sacrificing for their benefit "The Perfect Carrot."
