Curiosity Charges the Wound and Wounds the Charge
1 November 2010 | by See all my reviews

First, in the City, when spring is in the air, there's nothing a monkey likes more than to spring into the air, so Curious George bounces upon everything around the apartment, as the Man with the Yellow Hat watches, and everything around the lobby, as Hundley the Doorman's Dachshund also watches Curious George's bouncing, causing The Doorman to say that he wishes that he had Curious George's energy, but watching Curious George's bouncing all over the sidewalk makes Hundley the Doorman's Dachshund tired.

Well, at Museum of Science, Professor Wiseman asks if the toy which Curious George carries is his favorite dinosaur, but Curious George points to the remains of a real dinosaur as his favorite, and then he climbs to examine T-Rex frame.

But, oh no! When he slips from T-Rex, and lands upon the floor, Curious George is transported by ambulance to Doctor Baker's hospital! Doctor Baker examines Curious George through X-rays to determine that he has a broken leg and sets it into a cast, which he must wear for several weeks.

Now, when the Man with the Yellow Hat wheels Curious George back into the lobby, The Doorman and Hundley the Doorman's Dachshund learn about Curious George's mishap, and so, when the Man with the Yellow Hat nurses Curious George, he welcomes Hundley to visit Curious George, before The Doorman arrives upstairs to volunteer Hundley as Curious George's monkey-sitter when the Man with the Yellow Hat leaves for work, and then the Doorman excuses Hundley from lobby duties for the duration.

Then, the next morning, Hundley the Doorman's Dachshund shows up on time for monkey-sitting, but while Hundley tries to refresh ice pack, Curious George wheels chair haphazardly and crashes into Hundley's work, which now includes cleaning up after Curious George when he spills juices, and scratching itches with a straw because Curious George cannot reach. So there's more to monkey-sitting than merely watching him every day.

And then one day, Hundley the Doorman's Dachshund discovers Curious George on crutches, but Curious George needs practice because he keeps falling into things; and, soon afterward, Curious George is able to walk upon his cast, which Doctor Baker has wrapped with a rubber boot.

Yet, one day in Endless park, Gnocchi, Chef Pisghetti's pet Cat, and Charkie the black Cocker Spaniel attempt to play, but Hundley the Doorman's Dachshund must prevent Curious George from climbing and falling again. This goes on for weeks, and then Curious George returns to Doctor Baker with the Man with the Yellow Hat and receives a clean bill of health, so there is no more cast to wear.

So, now that Hundley the Doorman's Dachshund is back on lobby duty, how will Curious George, Charkie the black Cocker Spaniel and Gnocchi and Chef Pisghetti's pet Cat be able to play with Hundley, the way Curious George does when he is "Housebound!?"


Next, in Country, Bill the Country Neighbor Boy delivers newspapers on his bicycle, causing Curious George to wish that he may have one, too, when the Man with the Yellow Hat explains that the bicycle in the basement was his as a boy, so the Man with the Yellow Hat attempts to restore the bicycle tires with an air-pump, for Curious George to ride with his yellow helmet.

Now, three days later, Curious George has his first bicycle, so the Man with the Yellow Hat tells him three things to be a good little monkey cyclist: "Watch where you're going. Stay on the right side of road. And signal turns by extending arm."

Well, when Curious George catches up to Bill, Bill explains that he's running late for school, and so, could Curious George deliver the remainder of his newspaper route? Bill explains that every house on the left side of the street receives a newspaper, one of which Curious George tosses to hit Mr. Quint, who tends to his garden.

But when Curious George stops to play with the ducks, he decides to make newspaper boats to sail down the stream, or at least until a lady upon a bench explains that customers await their morning newspapers, and these are now all wet.

Oh, maybe the Man with the Yellow Hat knows where to get dry newspapers, but on Curious George's way back to ask, he wrecks into a rock, lands upon his helmet, and wrecks his bicycle.

Then, Mr. Renkins explains that neither he nor Leslie the Cow knows how to repair a bicycle rim, but Mrs. Renkins knows how because she's welding in the barn.

And then, Mrs. Renkins fixes the wheel into a vice to repair rim and spokes, and inter-tube to patch, but when Curious George tries to help, he wrecks the seat with a wrench, but Curious George does knows how to use an air-pump....

So, after Curious George rushes back to tell the Man with the Yellow Hat about his newspaper problems, the Man with the Yellow Hat presents him with a brand new bicycle, and he forgets to report about the wet newspapers, but somehow Bill rides by from school to tell the Man with the Yellow Hat that a woman saw a duck riding a newspaper boat down the stream, but how will Curious George be able to deliver dry newspaper from his new bicycle with the Man with the Yellow Hat on his old bicycle, all while "Curious George Rides a Bike?"
