  • Narrator: George liked visiting Professor Wiseman because she did so many different things.
  • Curious George: Huh?
  • Narrator: This time she was helping out on a rocket launch and the Man with the Yellow Hat was going to ride the rocket.
  • Professor Wiseman: So, you ready to be the first average, untrained person shot into space?
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: I sure am.
  • Curious George: (chattering)
  • Professor Wiseman: There's only room for one, George, but I have a special seat for you right beside me so you can watch.
  • Curious George: (groans)
  • Professor Wiseman: This is Dr. Alvin Einstein and Professor Anthony Pizza.
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: Wow, are you related to the famous...
  • Alvin Einstein: No, I'm not.
  • Anthony Pizza: Me neither.
  • Professor Wiseman: The International Space Station's food supply has run out.
  • Woman: We found a peanut. It was in the cushion of my chair.
  • Professor Wiseman: This man with the yellow hat will bring your food supply today.
  • Man: So, then it's okay to eat the peanut now?
  • All: (murmuring)
  • Professor Wiseman: Yes, you may eat the peanut.
  • Alvin Einstein: So, uh, this is your rocket designed by Professor Wiseman.
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: Ah...
  • Curious George: Ooh...
  • Anthony Pizza: It's up to you to launch the food payload at exactly the proper moment. After it detaches from the rocket, it will connect to the space station. Can we count on you?
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: Sure can. (becomes an astronaut)
  • Curious George: Ooh! (excited chatter) Ooh... (chatters)
  • Alvin Einstein: Professor Pizza and I are loading extra experiments you'll deliver with the food.
  • Narrator: George wanted to see what these experiments were.
  • Curious George: (grunting)
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: George, careful. This is an expensive, hi-tech...
  • (raccoon chittering)
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: raccoon?
  • Professor Wiseman: They'll live at the space station so we can study how they adapt to life in space.
  • Curious George: (chattering)
  • Narrator: George could see into all the containers......except this one.
  • Curious George: Hmm.
  • Narrator: What was hidden in there?
  • Curious George: (chattering)
  • Anthony Pizza: Show him the most important part.
  • Alvin Einstein: These keypads launch the payload. You hit these two keys on each pad at the same time.
  • Professor Wiseman: On all four at the same time?
  • Alvin Einstein: Yes, at the exact moment the rocket passes the space station.
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: I can't. I only have two hands.
  • Alvin Einstein: (sighs) The keypads were Pizza's idea.
  • Anthony Pizza: The raccoon was my idea. The four keypads was yours.
  • Alvin Einstein: Oh, here we go...
  • Anthony Pizza: Check your memos.
  • Alvin Einstein: (off-screen) I specifically remember when you came up with four keypads...
  • Curious George: (gasps) (chattering)
  • Professor Wiseman: Oh, we have to scrub the mission.
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: Or find an astronaut with four hands.
  • Curious George: (chatters)
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: Hey...
  • Curious George: (laughing) Ha-ha!
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: Hmm.
  • Professor Wiseman: Don't be sad. You could've gone if you had four hands.
  • Curious George: (chattering)
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: Be a good little monkey... in space.
  • Professor Wiseman: Ten, nine... eight, seven, six... five, four... three, two, one. Ignition. George, you've achieved orbit.
  • Curious George: Ooh. (chuckles)
  • Professor Wiseman: To your left is Earth.
  • Curious George: Huh? Ooh...
  • Professor Wiseman: To your right, you're passing the space station.
  • Curious George: (nervous chattering)
  • Professor Wiseman: Don't worry. You're circling the earth, so you'll pass it again when you've done one complete orbit.
  • Curious George: Uh-huh. (chattering)
  • Professor Wiseman: Did I mention the lower gravity in space plus the motion of the rocket make you weightless?
  • Curious George: (hooting)
  • Alvin Einstein: He's about to pass out of communication range.
  • Professor Wiseman: George, we're going to be out of contact for a few minutes.
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: Don't be scared, George. See you soon.
  • Curious George: Phew!
  • Narrator: There was nothing to do now but wait to push those buttons and wonder what was in that box. He'd seen how heavy these boxes were, so he gave a mighty monkey tug and found out he wasn't the only thing that weighed less in space. Toys! It was full of toys!
  • Curious George: (chattering)
  • (blipping)
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: (sighs) Poor George. I hope he's not too scared being alone and out of contact.
  • Curious George: (hooting)
  • Narrator: George had never seen a top spin so long before. Space was a great place to play.
  • Curious George: Whoo!
  • Narrator: George wondered whether these toys would be more fun if he had someone to play with.
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: He's coming back into communication range.
  • Professor Wiseman: What's happened? Where's George?
  • Curious George: (calling out)
  • Professor Wiseman: George, you must put the experiments away.
  • Alvin Einstein: Hurry! It's almost time to send them to the space station.
  • Anthony Pizza: At least he didn't free the ants.
  • Curious George: Oh?
  • Alvin Einstein: If ants get into the back, they might eat the astronauts' food.
  • Curious George: Huh?
  • Alvin Einstein: In 28 seconds, he'll be in position to launch the payload.
  • Curious George: (nervous chattering)
  • Professor Wiseman: (off-screen) You have 20 seconds to get everything ready to launch.
  • Curious George: Ooh... Aah... Oh... Oh... Aha... (gasps)
  • Narrator: But George wasn't ready in time.
  • (beeping) (rapid beeping)
  • Anthony Pizza: He's got to do it next time around.
  • Professor Wiseman: George, you'll only get one more chance. Then, succeed or fail, we have to bring you home.
  • Both: We are really hungry!
  • (beeping) (static)
  • Narrator: Hard to believe, but cleaning his room had prepared George for an important mission in space.
  • (raccoon chittering)
  • Curious George: (grunts)
  • (raccoon chittering)
  • Curious George: (chattering quietly) Ah! Ya!
  • (beeping)
  • Curious George: (chatters)
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: He looks ready.
  • Professor Wiseman: George, are you ready to launch?
  • Curious George: (chatters)
  • Professor Wiseman: Excellent! I'll tell you when.
  • Alvin Einstein: Uh, maybe we shouldn't have sent a monkey.
  • Professor Wiseman: Shh.
  • (rapid beeping)
  • Professor Wiseman: Now, George, now!
  • (loud, short beep) (whooshing) (whooshing)
  • Both: He did it!
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: Great job, George!
  • Man: Thank you, George.
  • Curious George: (chatters)
  • Professor Wiseman: You're in position to return home. Pull the lever to fire propulsion rockets.
  • Curious George: (groans)
  • Professor Wiseman: (off-screen) George, pull the lever now, or you'll be out of position.
  • Curious George: (chatters)
  • (beeping)
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: What happens if he pulls the lever late?
  • Professor Wiseman: He could land anywhere-- top of a mountain, the North Pole.
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: George, pull the lever now!
  • Curious George: Huh? Oh! (chatters)
  • (all sigh in relief)
  • Narrator: So, George was a hero.
  • Curious George: (happy chatter)
  • Narrator: And he proved, just because you're a small monkey (camera shutter clicks) doesn't mean you can't take care of everything...
  • Curious George: Aw...
  • Narrator: down to the tiniest details.
  • Girl: George is a monkey, so sometimes he can do things that you can't do. He was launched into space and in orbit around the Earth.
  • Noreen: Welcome to the Charles Hayden Planetarium at the Museum of Science in Boston.
  • Girl: Orbit means going around something.
  • Noreen: I want you all to imagine we have a big space cannon.
  • Boy: Boom!
  • Girl: It didn't go so fast at first.
  • Noreen: So if we launch the basketball faster...
  • Boy: It would come back around and around and around.
  • Girl: We used a spoon to launch the pom-pom.
  • Noreen: Your goal is to get your satellite in the Earth's orbit, and that's between the two lines.
  • Girl: Our little satellite only went straight up. Then Noreen put a block under the spoon to change the angle.
  • Children: Two...one... blastoff! Yeah!
  • Girl: Now it's working great.
  • Noreen: Oh! You got it in Earth orbit.
  • Children: Oh...
