Ice Station Monkey is the first half-episode of the fifty-first episode of Curious George.
In the Antarctic, Curious George spends his summer vacation in the frozen winter of Antarctica on Professor Wiseman's Antarctic Reasearch Team, to take photographs of penguins, and the mission for Curious George and the Man with the Yellow Hat would be to photograph the rare Chin Strap Penquin, which has not been seen on last year's Antarctic excursion.
Now, keep in mind that when summer hits Curious George's Country and City, winter surfaces on Antarctica, making it not only very cold but also very dark because sunlight does not reach below the Antarctic Circle during its winter months although for the sake of this episode, daylight is observed outdoors during its morning scenes for some reason or another.
Well, anyway, Professor Wiseman remains on Research Station Zebra Boat and sends Curious George and the Man with the Yellow Hat off to Ice Station Alpha overnight, along with their gear bags, video camera and radio microphone walkie talkies, to photograph the Chin Strap Penquin.
But the next morning, Curious George ventures away with the video camera, as Professor Wiseman notices a nesting ground of Emperor Penguin from her boat, and the Man with the Yellow Hat while encounters the Adelaide Penguin.
And, when Curious George falls through the snow along a mountain top and into a crevice, he lands near a flock of Chin Strap Penquins and begins to photograph them, when he slips and loses the video camera into the sea, but a friendly Seal emerges with the video camera's strap around its neck, and so Curious George radios the Man with the Yellow Hat, who follows the trail of Curious George, slips into the mountain crevice, and lands beside Curious George, before they walk across floating ice blocks, which begin to melt for another strange reason, and then they escape from a Humpback Whale to take refuge from the blizzard inside a cave, as they build igloo blocks to barricade themselves from the frigid storm.
So, will Curious George and the Man with the Yellow Hat be able to brave the frozen Antarctic blizzard overnight and somehow photograph the Chin Strap Penquin and somehow make it back to Ice Station Alpha for Research Station Zebra to rescue the Man with the Yellow Hat and "Ice Station Monkey?"
