George Measures Up is the first half-episode of the sixty-ninth episode of Curious George.
In the City, Steve the City Boy has time to play with Curious George because Steve does not have to watch Charkie the black Cocker Spaniel for a while.
Well, Steve and Curious George visit the restaurant kitchen of Chef Pisghetti and Netti, who create what they hope to become the longest strand of spaghetti ever seen, at 30-feet in length.
Now, Chef Pisghetti and Netti expect a visit from Ginny the World Record Book reporter, to certify that Chef Pisghetti and Netti now hold the record for producing the largest strand of spaghetti in history.
So, this news excites both Curious George and Steve, who runs to his apartment to gather a stack of books for Ginny the World Record Book reporter to autograph, while Chef Pisghetti and Netti appoint Curious George to guard the restaurant from Gnocchi, Chef Pisghetti's pet Cat, whose turn it is this time around to mess up the place.
Well, what do you think could go wrong, as Curious George attempts to prevent Gnocchi, Chef Pisghetti's pet Cat, from returning inside while Chef Pisghetti and Netti file papers at Town Hall? Yes, that is correct. Gnocchi, Chef Pisghetti's pet Cat, sneaks back inside to string the 30-foot strand of spaghetti all across the restaurant seating area, knocking down lamps, chairs and tables, while trying to escape.
Then Chef Pisghetti telephones Steve back at the restaurant to ask him to measure the height of the neighboring building, but Steve has not yet returned from collecting his books, so the two-foot-tall Curious George takes the call and attempts to rise to the challenge of measuring the 32-foot-high neighboring building.
So, will Curious George manage to measure the height of the neighboring building, while trying to contain Gnocchi, Chef Pisghetti's pet Cat, before Steve returns, before Chef Pisghetti and Netti return, or before Ginny the World Record Book Reporter arrives to discover how well Curious "George Measures Up?"
