Curious George, Stain Remover is the second half-episode of the third episode of Curious George.
The Man with the Yellow Hat returns to his country residence with Curious George and a brand new teal-colored rug to display across the hardwood flooring of his living room. Because Professor Wiseman has selected the proper rug for the Man with the Yellow Hat, she requests a photograph, but now his camera needs new batteries, and so he asks Curious George to keep an eye on the rug, while he runs into the village for purchases.
Curious George obeys one order yet disobeys the larger order, by pouring a large glass of grape juice to hold while jumping upon the new rug. Naturally, grape juice would leave a stain if poured upon a rug, carpet or furniture, as many of you may have been reminded by now, so Curious George must quickly employ some sort of stain remover to remedy his accident.
Curious George scurries around the residence, grabbing a bottle of dish-washing liquid, box of bubble bath soap, large box of powdered laundry detergent, and a bar of soap, to pour all of these ingredients onto the new teal rug. But when he realizes that he needs to add water in order to allow the stain remover products to work, he hooks up the garden hose to flood the living room, and now he creates a bigger mess than ever.
So, Curious George decides that the best way to drain the soapy flood from inside would be to pump the water to the outside, and so he rushes passed the tree of Jumpy Squirrel, to scurry onto neighboring Renkins's Farm, but Mr. and Mrs. Renkins are plowing the fields out back and do not hear his knocking.
Therefore, Curious George attempts to retrieve the pump from their barn without invitation, trying to enlist the assistance of the Goat, but the Goat knocks Curious George across the farm-yard. He attempts to recruit Tracy the Hen and her six little Chickies, but then decides that they, neither, would be able to lug the heavy pump back to the country residence. Two cattle, identified as Two Cows, also are unable to assist Curious George because of their shackles, and the same goes for the corral of Watch Pigs, who are latched within the confines of their wooden sty.
Curious George accidentally releases the Watch Pigs to flee into the fields and the Two Cows, to accompany him after he decides to use a lever in order to lift the pump onto wheels, but will he make it back in time to drain the country residence of its soapy flood waters before the Man with the Yellow Hat returns with his camera and new foot stool? Or will he not effectively implement his elaborate "Curious George, Stain Remover?"
