Curious George Takes a Dive
Curious George vs. Winter
|Written by||Grant Moran|
Unbalanced is the first half-episode of the thirtieth episode of Curious George.
In the City, Curious George loves to play with Chef Pisghetti's winter mobile, but once winter ends, Chef Pisghetti takes it down, so Curious George decides to create his own mobile of spring fruits.
Now, outdoors, Curious George meets three balancing acrobats, the Zucchinis, family friends of Chef Pisghetti, who come by to order food for their rehearsal. While Chef Pisghetti prepares their pizzas and pie, Gnocchi, Chef Pisghetti's pet Cat, doesn't see what Curious George finds tough about balancing on a fence, but Curious George wonders how the Zucchinis do it.
Well, Chef Pisghetti hands Curious George three pizzas and a pie to deliver to the Zucchinis, so Gnocchi, Chef Pisghetti's pet Cat, accompanies Curious George, as he crosses Endless Park, to find Betsy and Steve's playing seesaw, Curious George waving to them, causing Steve to move closer to the center to balance with Betsy, which also teaches Curious George a thing or two about balance.
Then, when Curious George arrives at circus tent, Zucchinis invite Curious George to join them in balancing, but Leo the male Zucchini is allergic to cats, causing him to sneeze, and so Gnocchi, Chef Pisghetti's pet Cat, is sent outside, but she is determined to return inside.
And then, Claire, one of the two female Zucchinis, or the other unidentified one, falls from the high wire when Curious George carries a mop upon it to attempt to balance, but somehow doesn't, and so off he falls off, as well!
Well, Aunt Margaret, Betsy, Steve, the Man with the Yellow Hat and Chef Pisghetti all attend opening night for the Zucchinis' performance, but so does Gnocchi, Chef Pisghetti's pet Cat, who slips inside the tent.
Now, the Zucchinis invite Chef Pisghetti to perform on the high wire, balancing upon Leo upon unicycle with Claire and the other female member's hanging from either side, with Chef Pisghetti's balancing upon Leo's shoulders, as Leo drives the unicycle across the high-wire rope!
But when Gnocchi, Chef Pisghetti's pet Cat, climbs onto the high wire, this causes another allergic reaction for Leo, and it would seem as though Chef Pisghetti and the Zucchinis may be doomed unless Curious George is able to save the day, by trying to lure Gnocchi from lounging upon the high-wire before them.
So, will Aunt Margaret, Betsy, Steve, the Man with the Yellow Hat and the rest of the audience receive more than they may have bargained for, as Gnocchi tries to decide which way to turn, toward Chef Pisghetti and the Zucchinis, or toward Curious George, as Curious George and the Zucchinis remain "Unbalanced?"
