Curious George

Aimed at preschool viewers (ages three to five), Curious George inspires children to explore science, engineering, and math in the world around them.
And what better guide is there for this kind of exploration than the world's most curious monkey?

George lives to find new things to discover, touch, spill, and chew. Everything is new to George and worth investigating. Of course, in George's hands - all four of them - investigation often leads to unintended consequences! Throughout George's adventures, he encounters and models basic concepts in each of the three content areas.

On WQED-TV:

Curious George airs on WQED-TV weekdays at 8:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.
