Curious George vs. the Turbo Python 3000 is the second half-episode of the twenty-fifth episode of Curious George.
In the City, Curious George awakens the Man with the Yellow Hat to pull him from his bed, to watch an amusement park commercial with a Pirate Spokesman's promoting Zany Island, to showcase a ride upon the Turbo Python 3000 Roller Coaster.And as a Young Mother tells Baby Honey to sleep in order to grow, Curious George takes a nap upon the bench beside them. Once Weeper succeeds at taking candy from a baby, Joker believes that he’s ready to take on Batman. Baby Georgina shakes a rattle. This episode is remarkable for the presence of a human baby, the only moment I'm aware of in the entire series that human babies make their first appearance. Kipper does not do particularly well by the child, accidentally popping its purple balloon while reaching for the butterfly and then slinking off before any. Yet, when Curious George and Hundley the Doorman's Dachshund welcome Baby Dante and his mother, Hundley the Doorman's Dachshund finds Baby Dante's ball, and Curious George retrieves a resident's pen to return. A baby being fed spinach.
Well, Curious George persuades the Man with the Yellow Hat to change his schedule to take him to Zany Island, where Betsy and Steve join the Man with the Yellow Hat and Curious George, them to announce their excitement to ride the Turbo Python 3000. But as Betsy, Steve and Curious George anticipate the ride, the Man with the Yellow Hat feels upset because the last time which he rode a roller coaster was as a child, as the Boy with the Yellow Hat, and not a pleasant experience when his Yellow Hat blew away.
But then, Roller Coaster Operator tells a Small Boy and Curious George that they aren't tall enough to ride the Turbo Python 3000, because they don't reach the minimum height requirement according to the poster, and so Curious George tries to measure up to Betsy and Steve, by borrowing a top hat from a carnival employee who happens by, but Roller Coaster Operator isn't fooled by Curious George's disguise.
Now, the Man with the Yellow Hat decides that before the day is over, he is determined to ride that Turbo Python 3000 somehow, but continues to experience flashbacks of his negative experience as the Boy withe the Yellow Hat. So, while Curious George is determined to ride, the Man with the Yellow Hat is determined to avoid repeating this negative experience.
Then the Small Boy, whom the Roller Coaster Operator rejects, teams with Curious George to attempt to grow to the required height, like Carnival Strong Man, and so Curious George decides to exercise by lifting weights, eating licorice like a giraffe, and stretching himself while suspended from a bar by his feet (or second set of hands) and dreams that now he has grown and grown although now too big to ride the Turbo Python 3000.
But, as Betsy stands in line with Aunt Margaret, Steve and the Man with the Yellow Hat, Betsy loses her cap in the wind, reminding the Man with the Yellow Hat of that fateful day as the Boy with the Yellow Hat, when the Man with the Yellow Hat lost his Yellow Hat, and so, after he rescues Betsy's cap, the Man with the Yellow Hat realizes that what he fears most would be to lose his Yellow Hat.
So, as Pirate Spokesman figures a way for a monkey to measure up to the required height, will the Man with the Yellow Hat finally figure a way to resolve his apprehensions along with "Curious George vs. the Turbo Python 3000?"
