  • Narrator: George was happy just about anywhere, city or country.
  • Jumpy Squirrel: (chittering)
  • Narrator: But Jumpy Squirrel jumped from tree to tree because that's about the only place he felt comfortable.
  • Jumpy Squirrel: (chittering)
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: Hey, is that Jumpy Squirrel?
  • Curious George: (chattering hello) (chatters curiously) (groans) (chatters)
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: I don't know what that guy's doing. I didn't get a good look at it.
  • Narrator: A monkey like Curious George can't stand a mystery.
  • Curious George: (chattering)
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: You want to go back and see what's up, don't you?
  • Curious George: Uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh.
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: Okay, but remember-- be a good little monkey.
  • Curious George: (chattering agreeably)
  • (bicycle bell rings)
  • Curious George: (chattering hello)
  • Bill: Hey, George! Boy, for a city kid, he's one fast runner.
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: He saw a workman back on the road and has to see what he's doing.
  • Bill: Didn't you hear? They're putting up a traffic light.
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: A traffic light? Out in the country? Well, I guess you can't stop progress.
  • Curious George: (chatters)
  • Jumpy Squirrel: (chittering)
  • Narrator: Jumpy Squirrel couldn't stop because he was busy gathering up nuts to store for winter, And he'd found a lot of them across the road.
  • (a workman puts a traffic light)
  • Curious George: Yeah! (chatters)
  • Workman: Oh... Those branches block the light. (cuts the branches)
  • Curious George: Oh. (chatters)
  • Workman: See ya!
  • Curious George: Bye!
  • Jumpy Squirrel: (panicky squeak)
  • Narrator: Jumpy was sure this was how he crossed the road. And what was that thing? What happened here?
  • Curious George: Hmmm. (chattering) Uh-oh.
  • Jumpy Squirrel: (shrieks)
  • Narrator: There was no way to get back safely.
  • Curious George: (beckoning chatter)
  • Jumpy Squirrel: (shrieks) (panting) Phew!
  • Curious George: Hmm...
  • Narrator: George noticed that people seemed to like red a lot, because they all stopped to look at it. People who liked red didn't like green. When the light turned green, everybody drove away. And when it came to yellow, so far people only liked it enough to slow down and look a little bit.
  • Curious George: (chattering)
  • Narrator: The lights were always changing. People didn't get much time to enjoy their favorite colors.
  • Curious George: Ah.
  • Narrator: So, George thought of a way to make it more fair for everyone. George made a special green side, because someone who liked green was bound to show up. A yellow side for those who might prefer yellow......and a red side, which George predicted would be the most popular.
  • Curious George: Yeah. (chuckles) Huh?
  • Biker: Wow, never saw a light that was all green before. It's cool, man.
  • Curious George: Hey.
  • Narrator: George was thrilled. The green light was a winner.
  • Mr. Renkins: Hmm, guess it ain't ever gonna turn red.
  • Curious George: Uh-uh. (hooting)
  • Mr. Renkins: What a great idea. I hate stopping.
  • Narrator: Yellow-- another winner.
  • Woman: Isn't this light ever going to turn green?
  • Curious George: Uh-uh, uh-uh, uh-uh. (giggling)
  • Narrator: Look at all those cars. Red sure was popular.
  • Curious George: Yeah! (laughing)
  • Narrator: This was the best idea he ever had. But Jumpy Squirrel wasn't quite as pleased. Since nobody stopped to look at green, he never felt safe enough to cross the road.
  • Jumpy Squirrel: (chittering)
  • Narrator: Maybe Jumpy wasn't the only one who didn't appreciate George's work.
  • Man: What's going on here? Move it!
  • (horns honking)
  • Curious George: Hmm?
  • Narrator: George didn't understand why they were unhappy. If they didn't like it, why didn't they just drive past the red light?
  • (horns honking)
  • Mr. Quint: Oh, hiya, George.
  • Curious George: Hi. (hooting)
  • Mr. Quint: Hiya, George. See, this is why boat travel is always best.
  • (siren whooping)
  • Wint Quint: Hey, Clint.
  • Mr. Quint: Hey, Wint. George, you remember my brother Wint.
  • Wint Quint: Hey, George.
  • Curious George: Hi.
  • Wint Quint: I was proceeding northward and encountered stationary vehicles. Thought I should investigate, hmm? Hmm... That's not right. Hmm...
  • Mr. Quint: Thanks, Wint.
  • Curious George: (excited chatter)
  • Wint Quint: Oh, did you do this?
  • Curious George: Uh-huh.
  • Wint Quint: But now, George, you're from the city. You must see traffic lights every day. Don't you know how they work?
  • Curious George: (chattering) (dreams about the traffic light)
  • Narrator: George only paid attention to the lights that told him when to walk.
  • Curious George: (chattering)
  • Narrator: Those other lights were for drivers, and he didn't drive.
  • Wint Quint: Well, you're young, and you are a monkey, but you should try to be more curious about important things.
  • Curious George: (chatters)
  • Wint Quint: Well, it's simple: Green means the cars should go; yellow means slow down; red means the cars have to stop.
  • Curious George: Oh.
  • (car horn honking)
  • Wint Quint: Don't interfere with that light while it's performing its duty. Okay, George?
  • Curious George: (hooting)
  • Wint Quint: Hmmm. I don't even know why they put a traffic light out here in the middle of nowhere. Seems wrong.
  • Curious George: (chattering good-bye) (chuckles) Huh? (gasps)
  • Narrator: The light was out, but that wasn't so bad. It wasn't even there yesterday.
  • Jumpy Squirrel: (chittering) (squeaking) (chittering)
  • Narrator: Except that yesterday Jumpy had his branch bridge to cross the road on.
  • Curious George: (chattering) Ah.
  • Narrator: Then George thought of something he could do to help. Since George now understood how a traffic light worked... he was ready to be one.
  • Curious George: (chattering)
  • Jumpy Squirrel: (chittering)
  • Narrator: With George in charge, that traffic light worked better than before. At least it was better for squirrels.
  • (chicken clucking)
  • Curious George: (chattering)
  • (chicken clucking)
  • Jumpy Squirrel: (chittering)
  • (siren wailing)
  • Wint Quint: George, you promised to let that light perform its duty.
  • Curious George: (excited chattering)
  • Wint Quint: Wha...? Ah, it's not performing its duty. I apologize, George, but get down.
  • Curious George: Ah. (chattering)
  • Jumpy Squirrel: (angry squeaking)
  • Wint Quint: Hey, that's the squirrel I always witness proceeding across the road on those high branches. Hmm...
  • Curious George: (chattering)
  • Wint Quint: Did they cut off his squirrel crossing for that light?
  • Jumpy Squirrel: (imitating saw cutting)
  • Wint Quint: We don't even need this light. There's hardly any traffic. Well, George, squirrel... chicken and chicks, too, I am going to see that this situation is resolved. That's my job.
  • Curious George: (laughing)
  • Jumpy Squirrel: (chittering)
  • Narrator: It turned out they'd put that light up on the wrong corner. It was meant to go up in the middle of town. Wint Quint and Clint Quint put up a temporary squirrel bridge until the tree branches could grow back.
  • Curious George: (chattering good-bye)
  • Jumpy Squirrel: (chittering)
  • Narrator: And George decided to look at the traffic lights back in the city. Maybe some of them needed a monkey.
  • Boy #1: George is a monkey, so he can do things you can't do.
  • Boy #2: He changed a traffic signal so it didn't work right.
  • Teacher: Today we're gonna talk about symbols and sign.
  • Girl #1: Today we're making signs for our school.
  • Girl #2: This is the boys' bathroom.
  • Teacher: So what do you think we may need here?
  • Girl #3: I have a boy and these arrows are facing into the boys' bathroom.
  • Girl #1: She put two arrows. If you put only one arrow, you'd be walking into boxes in the wall.
  • (kids laughing)
  • Boy #3: You have to go straight in and then turn.
  • Girl #4: We're at the front entrance.
  • Teacher: When you come here you have to sign in to the office.
  • Girl #4: We should, like, draw a picture of, like, a desk or something and then point the arrow up.
  • Boy #4: We're gonna test the sign with a real person.
  • Teacher: I think it means that the office is upstairs.
  • Boy #3: She got it right.
  • Girl #1: Our signs worked better than George's crazy traffic light.
