|Written by||Lazar Saric|
Juicy George is the first half-episode of the sixty-fifth episode of Curious George.
In the City, Curious George dreams of giant fruit, before awakening, to learn that the Man with the Yellow Hat plans to take Curious George to the New Farmers' Market, along the street before Apartment Building 7, while Hundley the Doorman's Dachshund objects to vendors and customers' messing up the front of his building.
Now, at Farmers' Market, the Grocer uses a megaphone to announce his new line of grapes, and Juice Vendor Jay promotes his five fruit and vegetable juice with the secret ingredient. While Curious George expresses great delight in Juice Vendor Jay's product, the Man with the Yellow Hat says that he's not thirsty, but enjoys the juice sample and orders two additional drinks to go. So, Juice Vendor Jay fills orders with freshly-blended juice, to the delight of Curious George and the Man with the Yellow Hat.
Then, back at the apartment, the Man with the Yellow Hat refrigerates remaining containers of juice, but soon retrieves them to finish, and immediately returns to Farmers' Market, where Curious George and the Man with the Yellow Hat discover that everyone has gone away. So, the Doorman tells the Man with the Yellow Hat and Curious George that the Farmers' Market has packed up and gone for another week.
Well, the Man with the Yellow Hat purchases a new juicer machine, which comes without instructions, but Professor Wiseman calls the Man with the Yellow Hat to Museum of Science for consultation because they're selecting a new shade of yellow to paint the main hall, and so the Man with the Yellow Hat must leave Curious George to his vices, one of which would include Curious George's attempting to blend cherries, strawberries, apples, peppers, cabbage and the watermelon, which breaks when he knocks it from the refrigerator. But results taste unsavory, and so Curious George tries to mix produce again, but to no avail.
But, when Hundley the Doorman's Dachshund detects a mess in the making, he arrives during Curious George's third experiment, for which he takes notes trying different amounts of fruits, followed by more attempts, and still more attempts, to try to duplicate the secret recipe of Juice Vendor Jay. Well, the apples taste best to Hundley and him, but now Curious George needs that special ingredient, and so he consults Chef Pisghetti, who gives him radishes because Chef Pisghetti uses radishes as his secret ingredients in meal preparations.
So, when the Man with the Yellow Hat returns to his apartment to discover all of the mess, will Curious George be able to share his discovery at the next Farmers' Market anyway, and, if so, then how will Juice Vendor Jay react to the product of "Juicy George?"
