Curiosity Caps the Salvage and Salvages the Cap
11 November 2010 | by See all my reviews

First, in the Country, Curious George defies house rules, by painting upon the walls, before the Man with the Yellow Hat reminds him that it violates his code. But, when Curious George butters his corn-on-the-cob with his feet, house rules still apply, and Curious George decides that some house rules do make sense whereas others do not.

Now, outside, Jumpy Squirrel climbs his tree, and so does Curious George, but then it suddenly rains, and Curious George is quickly soaked, so the Man with the Yellow Hat gives him a dry, fluffy towel, leading Curious George to figure that he cannot play outdoors in the tree in the rain--unless he builds a tree house, and, that way, Curious George may invent his own house rules.

Well, Curious George selects the perfect branch, and also selects the perfect materials, such as cardboard, which isn't too perfect to serve as a floor-board because it's too pliable and doesn't support Curious George's weight, and so he falls from the tree!

Then, Mrs. Renkins offers Curious George a sturdy floor-board, trimming it according to Curious George's tree-house plan. Mrs. Renkins then offers Curious George the use of any wood which he may need.

And then, Curious George consults Mr. Quint at the pier, as Mr. Quint repairs the boards with hammer and nails, and so Mr. Quint offers Curious George the use of his hammer and nails.

Well, Curious George is now ready to build, so the Man with the Yellow Hat offers a hand, but Curious George denies that he needs assistance, so the Man with the Yellow Hat reminds him to be a good little monkey as he does whatever it is that he is doing.

But, when Curious George lifts the floor-board onto his perfect branch in Jumpy Squirrel's tree, the floor-board doesn't balance, and then it tumbles to the ground, causing Curious George to re-evaluate his plan, by suspending the floor-board across two branches, while Curious George wears goggles and two sets of gloves, as he uses all four hands to construct his tree-house.

Yet, with one wall to go, Curious George runs out of nails, and the one sheet of wood remaining, he cannot lift. So, Curious George then returns to the pier to remove Mr. Quint's nails and then a wall from Tracy the Hen's chicken coop, but now Tracy and her Chicks haven't a coop, and Mr. Quint falls from the pier when he and Tina try to sail.

Then, Curious George shows his new tree-house to the Man with the Yellow Hat, who is impressed, or at least until Mrs. Renkins and Mr. Quint arrive to complain about Curious George's borrowing the wrong things. But do they like his tree-house enough to approve it?

So, when Curious George paints his walls and throws his tree-house-warming party, serving corn-on-the-cob to Jumpy Squirrel, the Man with the Yellow Hat and himself, how will the Man with the Yellow Hat butter an ear of corn-on-the-cob with his feet under Curious George's tree-house rules once they're all "Up a Tree?"


Next, in the City, Curious George discovers new and unexplained things, as the Man with the Yellow Hat practices his smile in the bathroom mirror for his new driver's license photograph. Curious George tries this for himself, by taking the Yellow Hat and ruining it in the bowl.

Now, the Man with the Yellow Hat takes his Yellow Hat to the Dry Cleaner, pacing the floors, as he awaits the return of his Yellow Hat. The Man without the Yellow Hat then asks for Curious George to toss out the boxes of trash for trash day.

Then, the Man without the Yellow Hat goes for his run, as the Dry Cleaner delivers the Man with the Yellow Hat's Yellow Hat, but Curious George mixes up the trash boxes and accidentally discards the box with the Yellow Hat!

And then, Curious George returns to the apartment to discover that the box remaining behind contains not the Yellow Hat, but garbage, and so he returns to the garbage chute, where Hundley the Doorman's Dachshund and the Doorman rescue him from falling into the garbage chute!

Well, the Doorman escorts Curious George to the dumpster downstairs, but the sanitation crew already has removed the contents of the dumpster and drives away to the garbage dump! The Doorman explains that the garbage truck already left, so Curious George races across the City to try to recover the Yellow Hat and encounters the Man without the Yellow Hat near Endless Park, who is pleased to hear that the Dry Cleaner has already delivered the Yellow Hat.

Yet, as Curious George then races into an alley where he believes that he hears a garbage truck, he discovers that it's a pet groomer's truck, whose operator bathes a poodle in the lane.

Now, Curious George races around the City, searching for garbage cans and dumpsters which haven't been emptied, but it appears as though every can in the City has been emptied, or at least until Curious George arrives at Chef Pisghetti's, where Chef Pisghetti explains that recyclables go to the Recycling Center, but the trash goes to the landfill, where Curious George scurries to find himself overwhelmed by the amount of trash.

But, as Curious George drives a steam-roller in search of the Yellow Hat, he discovers that a sanitation engineer has presented the Yellow Hat to her supervisor, who says that he's always wanted one ever seen he saw a Man with a Yellow Hat with a pet monkey, and so she asks if that's the reason why he hired a monkey to drive the steam-roller.

So, will the Man without the Yellow Hat be reunited with his Yellow Hat in time for his driver's license photograph after Curious George searches the City once the Yellow Hat has been "Trashed?"
