Perfect show for a young child
Verified purchase
Curious George is one of the only shows I approve of for my toddler. I find that so many children's shows are hypnotizing and feature dull imagery and lifeless stories but plenty of squeaky voices and magical events. Curious George is a great show because the protagonist lives a regular life and learns important and applicable life lessons. For example, George might be tapping trees to get syrup, or building a squirrel house with caulking and insulation, or sound-proofing a chicken coop, or learning about washing hands to rid himself of germs, or creating a sand painting, or draining a pool. The stories are not too fantastical (aside from the fact that he's a monkey) and the music is not blaring and intrusive. Overall, great show for a young child, with plenty of day-to-day life lessons. Also, far easier to understand than something more advanced like the 90's version of the magical school bus. Overall, highly recommend.

Best show on televsion
Verified purchase
I'll just lay it right out there...
Curious George is the best television show for children (of any age).
It was the first show my daughter (about to turn 2) ever responded to, and it has held her attention and Imagineer since. The twist is, it's done the same for me.
From the first episode, it's fantastic. Each episode comes with 2 stories, usually alternating between the country and the city. The first story is an exciting adventure with George getting stuck on a runaway kite. It's very much in the spirit of the original books, but much more good spirited than the original stories. The second (and what sold me) had George investigating scratched restaurant booths to clear the name of his cat friend Gnocchi. Somehow the show effectively teaches forensics to preschoolers!
The show delves into educational content more seamlessly then I've ever seen. It covers STEM subjects, social interactions, friendship, personal responsibility, and simply rejoices in, well, curiosity.
If I keep going I might as well publish a book about how great this show is, so I'll sum it up with "that's your reward: you'll never be bored if you ask yourself, 'what is this?' like Curious George."

I like the light math and science theme
Verified purchase
There are lots of episodes in the season (much more than in subsequent seasons) and my four year old Curious George fanatic is loving this DVD. There are not too many ads to fast forward through, so your preschoolers can get right to George. I like the light math and science theme. For example, in an episode about donuts, George and watchers learn how adding 0 onto a number changes the value. The episodes here depict George as curious and always with the best of intentions -- not quite as mischievous as in some of the books. My four year old laughs out loud at this show all the time, which is just so sweet. The episodes here appear in the same 22 minute format (two back to back stories) as they do on TV.

I LOVE Curious George
Verified purchase
I LOVE Curious George. It is pretty much the only show my children watch. It is sweet and innocent -- no rudeness, bad attitudes or weird stuff as with many modern cartoons. Amazon -- WHY DO I SUDDENLY have to pay 1.99 per 20 minute episode when it has been free for the last two years? I am very disappointed. Please change it back to free with prime membership. Thank you!

Best kids show out there
Verified purchase
Best kids show out there, period, for younger kids. Not only is it sweet, fun, and educational, but is completely non-annoying, unlike any of the other young children's shows I've tried with my 14 month old. I'm sure it's because of the amazing voice talents of Frank Welker and Jeff Bennett, and the writers, who avoid cloying lines and delivery.

On the other hand, I'm devastated. Hulu just negotiated an exclusive deal with the distributors of the show for current and future seasons, and tv specials, etc. I looked it up when I couldn't find it on Prime and Netflix. Not like I'm going to get another subscription service which is substandard when I already have two. I guess we'll have to try to get the best deals we can for them on DVD, since I don't think they're available on BluRay. Oh, I'm just sick.

░░░░░A FUN ENTERTAINING SWEET SHOW░░░░░

Curious George is obviously a classic. This up to date adaptation of the classic stories is very well done. It preserves the original theme and tone of the old Curious George books while modernizing it for today's kids.

George is a lot smarter than a real monkey, but it's a cartoon. The character is essentially a very simplified child. He presents emotions and thoughts in a very child like manner that a young audience can relate to. In most episodes there is a lesson to be learned about following directions and not getting into trouble. That's always a welcome theme in my house.

All in all it's a great show. I feel safe watching it with my young kids without any fears that they will sneak in themes that are too grown up or overly violent.

You Can't Go Wrong With George
Verified purchase
My 4-year-old daughter has been in love with Curious George since she was two. We watch this show over and over. Truth be told, my wife and I like it almost as much as our daughter does. It's one of the few animated shows out there in which the viewer is not being constantly bombarded with screaming characters and loud sound effects. George is much more low-key.

It's also a pretty educational show. Many a time my wife have pointed out a real-life occurrence and said something to the effect of, "Hey, this is just like that time that George had to go to the blobbity-bloo."*

We used to just stream the show (from a popular streaming service which rhymes with "get sticks"), but they recently lost their licensing agreement. Since she loves the show so much, we decided to buy the DVD's. But it seems like there are only a few seasons available on DVD at the time of this review. I was able to find seasons 1, 6, 7, and 8 only. We resorted to purchasing the others digitally (via a service that rhymes with "my spoons"). Not sure why some seasons are available on DVD and not the others.

Anyway, at their low prices, you can be pretty certain that your kids (or you, I suppose) will get your money's worth out of these discs.

*(The episode where he goes to the blobbity-bloo is a classic.)

George is a WONDERFUL kid's show!
Verified purchase
My daughter LOVES George. She will watch every episode and gets up and acts out what the show is teaching. She loves the intro song and learns concepts like numbers, shapes, colors, emotions, cause and effect, vocabulary/communication, and various life lessons. She's only 2 and she quotes the show all the time! She likes to "swing like a monkey" and acts like she's George and "teaches" mommy what she's learned. She'll get excited and say "We need to help him" when George is in a bind and overall it's a great show that's not annoying the same way as a lot of kid shows are. No annoying high pitch blabber that gets repeated over and over and over and it's also not slow and boring. It's fun and interactive and a great show for kids of all ages.
