Curious George Swings Into Spring

(Rochester, N.Y.) – WXXI and 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 viewers ready to explore the outdoors. The one-hour adventure airs on WXXI-TV Friday, April 3, 2015 at 8 a.m. and again at 3 p.m.

Curious George is dancing on the balcony at sunrise and The Man with the Yellow Hat is sure that George has spring fever. So 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.
