Curious George Takes a Hike is the second half-episode of the fourtieth episode of Curious George.
In the Country, the Man with the Yellow Hat and Bill the Country Neighbor Boy invite Curious George on a long hike at the Nature Preserve, where they tell Nature Preserve Ranger of their plans to hike to Lookout Ridge. While the Man with the Yellow Hat needs to create five sketches for Art class, Bill needs to collect a notebook of loose leaves for his loose leaf notebook. In addition to their creative supplies, they pack a First Aid kit, water, rope and whistles.
Now, as the Man with the Yellow Hat and Bill conduct their projects, Curious George expresses boredom at second tree sketching and snacks upon potato chips, then tossing its empty bag over his shoulder. Bill explains that hikers return with everything which they carry into woods or else use the trashcan, into which Curious George tosses the wrapper.
Then, at a stream, Curious George misses the beaver which Bill and the Man with the Yellow Hat observe, before the Man with the Yellow Hat decides upon his third sketch, Beaver Lodge, before it's time to move on.
And then, Curious George observes a waterfall, which interests him, but the Man with the Yellow Hat sketches his fourth drawing, Turtle Peak, while Bill climbs a tree to collects leaves.
Well, Curious George continues to remain bored, coloring his animals, and not seeing anything which he couldn't see at home, while the Man with the Yellow Hat sketches his fifth, Craggy Tree.
But, when they arrive at Lookout Ridge, Bill reaches for a leaf over a cliff and slides down, causing the Man with the Yellow Hat to try to rescue Bill, but they both slide onto the next ledge!
And, when the Man with the Yellow Hat asks Curious George to secure his rope from his pack, but to tie it onto something first, Curious George ties it onto the Man with the Yellow Hat 's easel, which falls and knocks the Man with the Yellow Hat back down to the ledge! Bill then folds the map into a paper airplane to fly to Curious George, but the paper airplane misses and glides away from the ridge!
Yet, as Curious George carries the Man with the Yellow Hat 's sketches of places which they've been: Craggy Tree, Turtle Peak, Beaver Lodge, etc., Bill's bragging irritates the Man with the Yellow Hat, whose Yellow Hat flies off in the wind, while Curious George dips his head into the stream to study the beaver habitat and loses the Man without the Yellow Hat's sketches into the stream!
So, will Curious George be able to discover his garbage in the trashcan, to return to Ranger's Station, to alert Nature Preserve Ranger of Bill and the Man without the Yellow Hat's peril, as the Yellow Hat flies toward the Ranger's Station, when "Curious George Takes a Hike?"
