Camping With Hundley is the first half-episode of the twenty-fifth episode of Curious George.
In the City, it's the perfect day for a camping trip, and so Curious George and the Man with the Yellow Hat leave for ... a camping trip, as the Doorman and Hundley the Doorman's Dachshund see them off. So it's a great day for Curious George, to go camping, and a great day for Hundley the Doorman's Dachshund because Curious George goes camping and cannot mess up his lobby.
Well, the Man with the Yellow Hat takes Curious George to a rural camping site, to chop wood for a campfire, making it perfect for staying warm by nightfall, and perfect for roasting marshmallows. Curious George and the Man with the Yellow Hat then spend the evening camping in sleeping bags within their tent.
But the next morning, as Curious George anticipates another day of camping, the Man with the Yellow Hat tells him that it's time to return to the City, and there, Curious George continues to wear his backpack as though he's still camping. When Curious George and the Man with the Yellow Hat describe their experience to the Doorman, the Doorman suggests that he and Hundley the Doorman's Dachshund go camping, so they invite Curious George, who shows Hundley some of his camping tools along the way.
Now, the Doorman has an auto-navigator to guide the automobile and trailer, instead of Curious George's compass, and upon their arrival, Curious George searches the trailer for a tent, but the Doorman explains that the trailer, television and microwave are powered by a rooftop solar panel, while Hundley the Doorman's Dachshund fights off a colony of ants, which invades the campsite, causing Hundley not to want to stay outside.
Then, while the Doorman prepares dinner inside, with Classical music on his radio, Curious George gathers firewood, which the Doorman explains isn't necessary because he has a microwave oven.
And then, when it begins to rain, Hundley the Doorman's Dachshund objects to remaining outdoors, while Curious George delights, but when the Doorman tries to close the overhead sun-hatch, the satellite disk knocks the solar panel from the roof, while the rains flood the trailer, leaving a major mess indoors and outdoors, and ruining the auto-navigator in the process.
Well, Curious George wonders what an expert camper would do to solve some of these problems, and so he pitches a tent, while Hundley the Doorman's Dachshund finds dry firewood inside of a tin case, which permits the Doorman to suspend the sleeping bags above the fire, while Curious George collects more sticks to roast food over the campfire.
So, along their return journey to the City, a Goof evidently surfaces, as the sunroof miraculously disappears from the intact roof of the trailer. And for the next week, Curious George wears his knapsack to prepare for his next camping trip, but if it's up to Hundley the Doorman's Dachshund to select the next camping site, then where will Curious George accompany him, while "Camping with Hundley?"
