Scaredy Dog is the first half-episode of the fourty-second episode of Curious George.
In the City, the Man with the Yellow Hat packs up plenty of Curious George's belongings because Curious George's belongings take up a lot of space. So, the Man with the Yellow Hat asks Curious George if he feels certain that he doesn't want to give things away because Curious George won't use most of his things, but Curious George insists upon storing them all inside of the basement of Apartment Building 7.
Now, as the Doorman and Hundley the Doorman's Dachshund prepare to help Curious George to find basement storage space, a screeching sound indicates that Apartment 301's doorbell is stuck again, so The Doorman responds, asking Hundley to assist Curious George to carry and to store boxes of belongings into the basement.
Well, once inside the basement, Curious George decides to play paddle ball, while Hundley searches for space, causing Hundley to fear the basement and to retreat back upstairs into the lobby, where Curious George follows him to figure what's wrong, as the Man with the Yellow Hat descends via the elevator, retrieving more boxes from the apartment, and asking why Curious George and Hundley aren't performing their designated tasks.
And, once again, while Curious George tries to figure the source of Hundley's fears, as he searches the basement for things to fear, they hear a creepy noise, causing both to rush back upstairs into the lobby, where The Doorman and the Man with the Yellow Hat attempt to accompany them back downstairs, but The Doorman has to await Doorbell Repairman, and so the Man with the Yellow Hat carries Curious George and Hundley into the basement to search.
But later, when the mysterious noise returns, Curious George devises a plan to wrap scarfs around the ears of Hundley the Doorman's Dachshund and himself, as they return to determine that the noise seems to originate from every conceivable direction, and so they return to the lobby, to face the Man with the Yellow Hat, who carries more belongings from the elevator.
Then, the ever-prepared Curious George, who saves everything because you never know when you might need it, unpacks, to carry a fishing rod and a tape recorder to divide the basement into four sections, to cast his fishing line into each quadrant, and to record the sounds from each of the four sections. Upon replaying the tape, Curious George and Hundley determine that the source of the noise originates from the section of the basement nearest his boxes.
So, Curious George and Hundley the Doorman's Dachshund coax The Doorman and the Man with the Yellow Hat into the basement to investigate the loud box, which Hundley bravely shoves from the stack, for Curious George to peek inside the open box to discover the source of the problem, before The Doorman and Hundley exodus the basement, as the door locks behind them, to leave Curious George and the Man with the Yellow Hat stranded inside, but will Hundley the Doorman's Dachshund therefore remain the only "Scaredy Dog?"
