Housebound! is the first half-episode of the twenty-sixth episode of Curious George.
In the City, when spring is in the air, there's nothing a monkey likes more than to spring into the air, so Curious George bounces upon everything around the apartment, as the Man with the Yellow Hat watches, and everything around the lobby, as Hundley the Doorman's Dachshund also watches Curious George's bouncing, causing The Doorman to say that he wishes that he had Curious George's energy, but watching Curious George's bouncing all over the sidewalk makes Hundley the Doorman's Dachshund tired.
Well, at Museum of Science, Professor Wiseman asks if the toy which Curious George carries is his favorite dinosaur, but Curious George points to the remains of a real dinosaur as his favorite, and then he climbs to examine T-Rex frame.
But, oh no! When he slips from T-Rex, and lands upon the floor, Curious George is transported by ambulance to Doctor Baker's hospital! Doctor Baker examines Curious George through X-rays to determine that he has a broken leg and sets it into a cast, which he must wear for several weeks.
Now, when the Man with the Yellow Hat wheels Curious George back into the lobby, The Doorman and Hundley the Doorman's Dachshund learn about Curious George's mishap, and so, when the Man with the Yellow Hat nurses Curious George, he welcomes Hundley to visit Curious George, before The Doorman arrives upstairs to volunteer Hundley as Curious George's monkey-sitter when the Man with the Yellow Hat leaves for work, and then the Doorman excuses Hundley from lobby duties for the duration.
Then, the next morning, Hundley the Doorman's Dachshund shows up on time for monkey-sitting, but while Hundley tries to refresh ice pack, Curious George wheels chair haphazardly and crashes into Hundley's work, which now includes cleaning up after Curious George when he spills juices, and scratching itches with a straw because Curious George cannot reach. So there's more to monkey-sitting than merely watching him every day.
And then one day, Hundley the Doorman's Dachshund discovers Curious George on crutches, but Curious George needs practice because he keeps falling into things; and, soon afterward, Curious George is able to walk upon his cast, which Doctor Baker has wrapped with a rubber boot.
Yet, one day in Endless park, Gnocchi, Chef Pisghetti's pet Cat, and Charkie the black Cocker Spaniel attempt to play, but Hundley the Doorman's Dachshund must prevent Curious George from climbing and falling again. This goes on for weeks, and then Curious George returns to Doctor Baker with the Man with the Yellow Hat and receives a clean bill of health, so there is no more cast to wear.
So, now that Hundley the Doorman's Dachshund is back on lobby duty, how will Curious George, Charkie the black Cocker Spaniel and Gnocchi and Chef Pisghetti's pet Cat be able to play with Hundley, the way Curious George does when he is "Housebound!?"
