The Fully Automatic Fun Hat is the first half-episode of the fourty-first episode of Curious George.
In the City, Curious George decides that the time has arrived for him to wear a nice hat, as does the Man with the Yellow Hat, but when Curious George attempts to try on the Yellow Hat for size, the Man with the Yellow Hat asks Curious George not to wear the Yellow Hat because he must soon deliver an important speech about Scientific Method before a panel of Expert Scientists at Museum of Science.
Well, Curious George, failing to impress friends with purchased hats, decides to create a lively one, and so he begins with his baseball cap, wrapping yellow poster board around its brim, taping into a tall cylinder, and proceeding to adapt many fun items to entertain friends.
Now, Curious George decides that what his hat needs would be an automatic ice cream dispenser, with hatch upon the brim. At first, this seems like a great idea, but when frozen ice cream suddenly melts, he transforms his fun hat into a raisin dispenser, but the raisins tumble out all too quickly.
Then, Curious George considers adding applications to please friends. Charkie the black Cocker Spaniel enjoys chasing things, so Curious George adds a disk dispenser. Hundley the Doorman's Dachshund enjoys balloons, so Curious George adds a balloon inflater, producing Hundley-shaped balloons. Gnocchi, Chef Pisghetti's pet Cat, enjoys toys and fish, and so Curious George adds a toy fish to wheel around the brim of his fun hat.
And Curious George adds a bubble-maker fan, to please the Man with the Yellow Hat, who marvels at Curious George's invention and remarks that if he could have had a hat like this, then he wouldn't need his Yellow Hat. So, Curious George presents the Man with the Yellow Hat his invention, which the Man with the Fully Automatic Monkey Fun Hat wears to Museum of Science, passing the Doorman, who comments, "Some chapeau!"
But, when the Man with the Fully Automatic Monkey Fun Hat prepares to deliver his important speech about Scientific Method before the panel of Expert Scientists at Museum of Science, the Fully Automatic Monkey Fun Hat becomes the center of attention, dispensing raisins, balls and bubbles, inflating Hundley-shaped balloons, and acting as a toy fish course around its brim.
So, will Curious George manage to arrive at Museum of Science in time to exchange the Yellow Hat with the Man for the Fully Automatic Monkey Fun Hat, as three Expert Scientists become mystified by his invention instead of the Man in the Fully Automatic Monkey Fun Hat's important speech about Scientific Method, by paying attention instead to "The Fully Automatic Monkey Fun Hat?"
