Curious George Swings Into Spring

This Earth Day, PBS KIDS invites viewers to join America’s favorite monkey for a new CURIOUS GEORGE special: Curious George Swings Into Spring! From spring fever to spring cleaning, from a canoe ride to a hot air balloon journey, George and his friends get families ready to explore the outdoors this Earth Day. The one-hour adventure premieres Monday, April 22 at 6:00am and 3:30pm on WPT and will repeat throughout the week- Check out the full schedule here.

In this special springtime episode, 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!
