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 theTV Schedulefor 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. (To learn more, read about theeducational philosophythat drives the series.)
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 actorWilliam 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. Most of these resources are available right here on the CURIOUS GEORGE Web site in theActivities & Moresection.
The series is also supported by thisWeb site, which features entertaining and educational activities for use at and away from the computer. The site activities focus on the same early science, engineering, and math curriculum as the television program.
Each episode of CURIOUS GEORGE is closed captioned by the Caption Center at WGBH for viewers who are deaf or hard-of-hearing.
