Earth Day is this coming Monday, April 22, 2013… and PBS KIDS is presenting the television premiere of CURIOUS GEORGE SWINGS INTO SPRING! This all-new movie event features George and his pals exploring the magic of the Spring season through a colorful adventure. As a PBS KIDS VIP, I’ve already had the chance to enjoy this here at Rock Father HQ, and it comes highly-recommended by my own preschooler, Addie. She’s watched it twice thus far. Check out a preview below…
You know it must be springtime if a curious monkey named George is dancing on the balcony at sunrise! The Man with the Yellow Hat is sure that George has spring fever, and he takes George to the park to experience all the wonders of spring. George is so excited about spring that he wants Hundley to have spring fever, too, but Hundley and the Doorman are busy trying to win the Mayor’s spring cleaning prize. When a broken water pipe floods the building, Hundley has to stay with George in the country, and George tries to make sure Hundley enjoys spring, too.
Even blooming flowers, baby animals and a canoe ride can’t make Hundley love spring. What’s worse – Hundley gets lost in the country! Searching for his lost friend, George accidentally launches a hot air balloon rally and, piloting a balloon, sails over the countryside. Luckily George manages to grab Hundley from a hilltop along the way. Together they balloon triumphantly to the city. The Man with the Yellow Hat and the Doorman stage a daring rooftop rescue. Not only are George and Hundley saved, but they manage to win the coveted Spring Building Prize! Finally, to George’s delight, Hundley now has spring fever, too!
