Curious George Takes a Hike
|Written by||Joe Fallon|
Curious George, Plumber's Helper is the first half-episode of the fourtieth episode of Curious George.
In the City, Curious George grows tired of the same old bathtub boat toys and decides that he needs something different to entertain himself while bathing, and so, while dripping wet, Curious George retrieves his "box of stray stuff," none of which has ever been played with before in the tub, when the Man with the Yellow Hat asks him to return to tub to finish bathing.
Now, after most of the contents of his "box of stray stuff" sinks, Curious George pulls the drain, causing most of his stray stuff to slide into the drain, thus clogging the bathtub and sink, and to back water into the kitchen sink, where the Man with the Yellow Hat washes dishes, causing him to decide to call the plumber.
Well, Mr. Auger the Plumber arrives, carrying the best toolbox which Curious George has ever seen, as the Doorman and Hundley the Doorman's Dachshund admit Mr. Auger, for Hundley to direct Mr. Auger to into the basement to shut off the main water valve, as Mr. Auger tells Curious George that he may watch if he's curious.
Then, Mr. Auger explains valves and pipes and the plumbing system, along with the clog-breaking machine, which he carries upstairs into the apartment, to release trapped stray toys. Mr. Auger then tells the Man with the Yellow Hat that he deduces that the drain clogged after Curious George took a bath, then suggesting a toy boat or a rubber duck.
And then, Mr. Auger shows Curious George how to open the downstairs shut-off valve for everyone in the building to have water again.
But, at dinner, when the Man with the Yellow Hat offers to purchase Curious George a toy boat or rubber duck the next morning, Curious George quickly ushers him to the door, in order to purchase bathtub toys now, and so Curious George cleans the kitchen, but water backs up to overflow the dishwasher, causing Curious George to think that Mr. Auger has missed an appliance.
Yet, when Curious George goes into the basement to shut off the main water valve, and to return back and forth to dismantle pipes, Hundley the Doorman's Dachshund watches, but it's too big a job for a little monkey, and so Curious George turns the main water valve back on and searches for the Man with the Yellow Hat at the store, but then Hundley the Doorman's Dachshund discovers water flooding the building!
So, walking back along the sidewalk, the Man with the Yellow Hat discovers water pouring off the balcony, and once inside the lobby, he asks The Doorman if he called the plumber, but the Doorman was on the roof, feeding Compass the Doorman's Almost-Homing Pigeon and the other pigeons, so Curious George, the Man with the Yellow Hat and the Dooman rush into the basement to discover Hundley the Doorman's Dachshund's stranded upon floating boxes! Will anyone be able to remedy the flood created by "Curious George, Plumber's Helper?"
