Curious George is a children's animated program that aired on the PBS Kids programming block on PBS. It is based on the series of books of the same name about a monkey named George and his owner, a man only known as The Man with the Yellow Hat. Although it started soon after the Curious George theatrical film, the show has a different continuity.
