  • Narrator: Watching for the Man with the Yellow Hat to come home was easy for a sharp-eyed monkey like George-- because nobody else was that yellow.
  • Curious George: Ooh. (chattering)
  • Narrator: Well, almost no one.
  • Curious George: Aw. (chattering)
  • Narrator: Seeing the man was great, but seeing him with a present was even better.
  • Curious George: (chattering) (chattering) (hooting)
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: Well, hello. How was your morning?
  • Curious George: Huh?
  • (door closes
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: Were you a good little monkey?
  • Curious George: (chattering)
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: That's my monkey.
  • Curious George: Ah.
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: Hold on, George. That present's not for you.
  • Curious George: Huh?
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: It's for Professor Wiseman's birthday. You can see what's inside when she opens it. Eh, tonight at dinner.
  • Curious George: (chattering)
  • Narrator: Dinner was years away. Maybe just one peek now.
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: If you really want to unwrap something, come in the kitchen.
  • Curious George: (chattering)
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: Here, you can pretend the orange peel is gift wrap. You'll be helping me and unwrapping, too.
  • Curious George: Oh. (chattering)
  • Narrator: Orange skin didn't feel like gift wrap... but there was something good inside.
  • Curious George: Mmm... (chattering)
  • Narrator: Maybe that thick skin was there to hold back squirts. Now, the onion had skin that felt like gift wrap.
  • Curious George: (sniffing)
  • Narrator: But it didn't smell like any present.
  • Curious George: (sniffing) Ooh.
  • Narrator: And no wonder they keep cheese wrapped up. These coverings were all different, but they hid the same thing.
  • Curious George: Yech!
  • Narrator: Something smelly. But that couldn't be the same reason the present was wrapped, could it?
  • (Curious George dreams about Professor Wiseman opening a present)
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: George, could you please peel me one apple?
  • Curious George: (chattering)
  • Narrator: This was much better; the apple smelled good.
  • Curious George: (dreams about him wrapping things) Oh. Ooh. (chattering)
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: Uh, George, after you've done one apple, leave the bowl of unpeeled fruit out, 'kay?
  • Curious George: Ooh. Huh? (chattering)
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: Those are Professor Wiseman's favorites that I bought especially for her birthday.
  • Curious George: Ooh. (chuckles)
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: Um, George? Could you pick up my pants for me?
  • Curious George: (chattering)
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: They're being altered at the department store.
  • Curious George: Hmm.
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: (laughs) Don't worry. We won't open it without you.
  • Curious George: Phew! (chattering)
  • Saleslady: Have a seat. I'll be back in one moment with the pants.
  • Narrator: The Man with the Yellow Hat was right. This errand had completely taken George's mind off the... fancy, beautiful, wrapped present.
  • Curious George: (chattering) (chattering) (chattering)
  • Narrator: Nothing to eat, nothing to smell. Nothing. All George uncovered was a mystery: Why just wrap empty boxes?
  • Man #1: Give me your honest opinion. I'm very proud of this display. (gasps)
  • Man #2: This is not a display. It's... it's a story: Remains of the Birthday! Brilliant! I love it!
  • Man #1: Why... well... I, uh... Thank you.
  • Curious George: (chattering)
  • Narrator: Wrapping always hid surprises. So why wrap these if everyone could see right through it?
  • Curious George: (chattering) (chattering)
  • Narrator: George decided that some wrapping was there just to keep monkeys out.
  • Curious George: Ooh. (chattering)
  • Woman: (laughing)
  • Curious George: (chattering)
  • Wrap Clerk: People sure are buying a lot of coffee makers. I just wrapped 15 in a row.
  • Saleslady: There you are. I've been looking all over for you.
  • Narrator: George wanted to play with the wrapper people some more, but he had to get these pants home.
  • Curious George: Bye! (hooting)
  • (door opens)
  • Narrator: George hadn't been gone very long but when he got back,
  • Curious George: (gasps)
  • Narrator: the present had disappeared.
  • Curious George: (chatters)
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: Oh Thanks for picking up my pants, George.
  • Curious George: (chatters)
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: I know how curious a little monkey can be, so I put the present away. That should take your mind off of it.
  • Curious George: (hooting)
  • Narrator: But hiding the present only made George more curious.
  • Curious George: Uh-huh? Huh! (chattering) Uh... Ah! (chatters) Ah!
  • Narrator: This was the first time George noticed the walls were wrapped. It looked like wrapping on top of more wrapping.
  • Curious George: (chattering)
  • Narrator: Maybe there were a hundred layers of wallpaper under here. Or not. Since he reached the end, George tried to put it all back, but it didn't want to go. Then he thought of a way to make this the perfect bathroom for the professor's birthday.
  • (people talking)
  • Curious George: Yeah! (chattering)
  • (door opens)
  • (elevator bell dings)
  • (door closes)
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: Uh... Is that you, George? Make sure you wash up before Professor Wiseman gets here.
  • Curious George: Uh-huh!
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: (off-screen) And would you make sure that bowl of her favorite fresh fruit is out where she'll see it?
  • Curious George: Ooh. Uh-oh. Uh... (chattering)
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: You can't get away with that.
  • Curious George: Ooh. (chuckles) Huh?
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: You didn't wash. This hand is all sticky. Okay, now, wa... wa... wa... What happened in here?
  • Curious George: Uh?
  • (doorbell buzzing)
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: Professor Wiseman! Help me hide this mess!
  • Curious George: (chattering)
  • (doorbell buzzing)
  • Curious George: Hee-hee! (hooting)
  • Professor Wiseman: Hello, George. Everything okay?
  • Curious George: Oh. (chatters)
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: (off-screen) I'll be right out. I got your favorite fruit! Help yourself.
  • Professor Wiseman: Oh. Uh... Is this a banangerine? You can't put skins on fruit, George. Only nature can do that.
  • Curious George: Oh. (chattering)
  • Professor Wiseman: On the other hand, nature doesn't make banangerines.
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: Sorry. I'm... Happy birthday from George and me.
  • Professor Wiseman: Oh, you didn't have to. Would you like to help me open it, George?
  • Curious George: Ooh. (chatters) (chatters)
  • Professor Wiseman: (gasps) I never would have guessed that's what was in this big box!
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: That's... that's why it was wrapped that way.
  • Professor Wiseman: Oh! My favorite symphony! You remembered. Thanks. Let's listen to it during dinner.
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: Oh, here. I'll get that.
  • Narrator: George figured he'd better eat something... because this was going take a while.
  • Child #1: George is a monkey, so he can do things that you can't do.
  • Child #2: He put all the skins back on the wrong fruits. Today we are going to the Harvard Museum of Natural History.
  • Denise: Now, if you had to pick one of these bananas, which one do you think you would choose? This bright yellow one, right?
  • Boy: Fruit is just like a present.
  • Denise: And this wrapper tells you that this one is good to eat.
  • Children: Me!
  • Child #2: Blech!
  • Boy: The green fruit is basically saying, "I taste horrible and don't eat me..."
  • Child #1: Ew!
  • Boy: "...until I'm ripe." The yellow one is basically saying, "I'm ripe. Come and eat me."
  • Child #3: Mmm.
  • Denise: And what's the point of the seed?
  • Children: To grow a new plant.
  • Denise: That's right, to grow new plants.
  • Boy: The plant wants the animal to eat the fruit, so when the animal is finished, he poops out the seeds.
  • Child #2: So it can spread around and grow in new places.
  • Boy: The skin of the fruit tells the animal if it's ready or not ready.
