|Written by||Joe Fallon|
Out of Order is the second half-episode of the second episode of Curious George.
When Curious George accompanies the Man with the Yellow Hat to the museum, Professor Wiseman lends the Man with the Yellow Hat a copy of her new book about numeric sequences, which he carries toward the fruit and vegetable market.
Along the way, Curious George and the Man with the Yellow Hat encounter Steve, his younger sister, Betsy, and their dog, Charkie the black Cocker Spaniel. Steve plays a portable video game, while lugging a wagon, but Betsy and Charkie do not yet get their turn to play.
But after Curious George and the Man with the Yellow Hat return to their apartment, the Man with the Yellow Hat realizes that he must have forgotten Professor Wiseman's book at the fruit and vegetable market. Upon their return, Curious George discovers the envelope containing the book and is rewarded with another piece of fruit.
After the Man with the Yellow Hat returns to the apartment to read the book, Curious George remains in the business district to search for objects left behind by others in order to reap another potential sweet reward, he thus following a female mail carrier from building to building, retrieving packages which she delivers, and enlisting the help of Steve, Betsy and Charkie the black Cocker Spaniel to return them to her in their wagon.
But when Betsy discovers that the lady, in fact, has delivered these parcels unto the lobbies of numbered apartment buildings, the race is on between the team of Betsy, Charkie and Curious George, vs. Steve to deliver the most packages the quicker, in order to reap the reward of playing his video game, before they discover that 24 deliveries overloading the wagon are all "Out of Order." (How they overload the wagon but not the mail bag remains a mystery.)
