Hats and a Hole is the second half-episode of the fiftieth episode of Curious George.
In the Country, Curious George awakens at 7:00 AM one bright and sunny morning, to hear the sound of the Man with the Yellow Hat's digging outside. Curious George could not think of a better way to start the day than to help the Man with the Yellow Hat to dig.
Now, the Man with the Yellow Hat withholds the surprise of revealing the reason for his digging, before Mr. Clint Quint arrives to provide an appropriate shovel for Curious George to dig. Mr. Quint then retrieves his wheelbarrow and buckets, as well as red, blue and yellow hard hats (guess who wears which) to wear into the deep, dark hole, which the trio attempts to excavate.
Well, when Mr. Clint Quint attempts to climb from the hole to retrieve his brother Flint Quint's ladder, he tumbles and drops his lucky fishing tackle float, and then asks Curious George to handle the task for him.
Then, eventually, the Man with the Yellow Hat announces that the hole is deep enough, as Curious George wonders whether or not it's deep enough for what? But Flint Quint arrives to retrieve his ladder to change a light bulb at the railroad station, and so Clint Quint and the Man with the Yellow Hat accompany Flint Quint back to the depot to figure a way to try to assist with holding the ladder while Flint Quint changes the light bulb.
And then, Jumpy Squirrel arrives to watch Curious George, who is not permitted to climb into the hole without a helmet, but when playing with acorns, the red, blue and yellow hard hats all descend into the hole!
But, if no one is permitted to climb into the hole without a hard hat, and if the hard hats lie at the bottom of the hole, and if Flint Quint, Clint Quint and the Man with the Yellow Hat need extra time to figure how to turn the latter to change the light bulb, then how will Curious George be able to retrieve the red, blue and yellow hard hats from the hole? Now, what if he were to try filling the hole with water, for the hard hats to float to the surface?
So, while Clint Quint and the Man with the Yellow Hat prepare to return to the Country house with the ladder, another light bulb burns out at the railroad depot, and Flint Quint, Clint Quint and the Man with the Yellow Hat must figure how many Country residents it requires to change a light bulb all over again! So, how do you suppose that Curious George will manage to deal with Mr. Quint's lucky fishing tackle float, plus his red, blue and yellow hard "Hats and a Hole?"
