Here’s a fun promo for Curious George including some of the live action. Each Curious George story is followed by an interstitial segment featuring kids modeling how viewers can engage with the same science, math and design engineering concepts as George did.
This one-minute video, created by PBS, won a Daytime Emmy on June 25, 2010 and shows how PBS KIDS is helping parents and kids explore the world around them as a trusted guide. The video features favorite PBS KIDS and PBS KIDS GO! characters — Grover, Curious George, Arthur, and Clifford the Big Red Dog — who continue to inspire children everywhere to explore the world around them and realize their potential.

We just wrapped filming the live action segments for the seasons 3 through 5 of the Curious George show (on PBS everywhere). Each animated story is followed by a action segment featuring children engaging with the concept the story explored. For all seasons to date I was contracted by the company producing the segments to serve as Associate Producer, work on developing the activity concepts, field testing whatever the kids needed to do, and then served as on site educator, art department and mad scientist when filming. Curious George is a co-production of Universal Studios and WGBH.
Many of our segments produced to date may be viewed on the Curious George website’s video page.
Curious George is an Emmy award-winning animated series based on the popular books by Margret and H.A. Rey. It airs daily on PBS KIDS. 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?
