CURIOUS GEORGE is a 2-time Daytime Emmy® award-winning animated series based on the popular books by Margret and H.A. Rey. It airs daily on PBS KIDS. (Check local listings or the TV Schedule for dates and times.)
Aimed at preschool viewers (ages three to five), the goal of the series is to inspire 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.
While remaining true to the look and feel of the beloved books, the daily series expands George’s world to include a host of colorful new characters and locales. Each episode features two animated stories followed by short live-action segments in which real kids investigate the ideas that George introduces in the stories. The first season was narrated by Emmy® award-winning actor William H. Macy.
The CURIOUS GEORGE series also aims to show parents and caregivers how to foster the development of science and math literacy in children. In addition to programming, the series is supported by a substantial educational outreach campaign that develops relevant materials and distributes them to librarians, teachers, community centers, and families. These materials offer activities designed to support and extend the learning objectives of the series.
Each episode of CURIOUS GEORGE is closed captioned by the Caption Center at WGBH for viewers who are deaf or hard-of-hearing.
