Color Me Monkey is the first half-episode of the thirty-seventh episode of Curious George.
In the City, Charkie the black Cocker Spaniel and Curious George play outside of Glass Palace, when Curious George learns that Mr. Glass consults with Curious George's upstairs neighbor, Mr. Zoobel, who also has a studio at the Zoo, where Mr. Zoobel takes Mr. Glass, Charkie and Curious George to observe his Art-producing operation.
Then, Mr. Glass decides to purchase a unique painting to hang in the lobby of Glass Palace, and so he commissions Mr. Zoobel, when Sue Burn, Mr. Zoobel's Pet Elephant, creates a floral arrangement painting containing a lavender flower with a sponge, which she holds with her trunk. Mr. Glass then hangs this unique painting in Glass Palace lobby.
But, when Mr. Glass and Mr. Zoobel return to the Zoo studio, Charkie pushes Curious George, causing Curious George to damage Sue Burn's painting, and then Curious George asks Sue Burn to make an exact copy, but she is unable to duplicate a unique painting, so Curious George discovers that he must recreate the canvas and dabble the palette of oils to copy Sue Burn's Art work.
Now, Curious George finds one problem in trying to draw a squiggly line along the canvas with his paintbrush; after all, Sue Burn stands much taller than Curious George, so she wouldn't face nearly the same problem. Plus, Curious George finds another problem in trying to figure a way to mix lavender paint from his palette of yellow, blue, red and white.
Well, Charkie the black Cocker Spaniel is on hand to try to play with Curious George, but when Curious George tries to tell her not to mess up his easel, Charkie the black Cocker Spaniel swishes her paw across the palette, mixing oil paint colors in the process, to form new colors.
So then, Charkie actually does Curious George a favor by swishing his palette because, this way, Curious George figures how to mix lavender paint, to complete the copy of Sue Burn's unique painting, for Mr. Zoobel to submit to Mr. Glass, who, after all, commissions one unique painting...that is, if Curious George is able to sneak the painting back into Glass Palace lobby before Mr. Glass is able to find out about the copy...or will he?
So, at the unveiling at Glass Palace, when Mr. Glass discovers two unique paintings, each containing lavender flowers, what will happen when Mr. Glass confronts Mr. Zoobel in front of an audience which includes the Man with the Yellow Hat, as he reveals Sue Burn and Curious George's unique paintings in the aftermath of "Color Me Monkey?"
