  • (thunder rumbling)
  • Narrator: The Man with the Yellow Hat always said the same thing about rainy days in the country
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: This is great weather... for ducks.
  • Curious George: Huh?
  • Narrator: And when the rain stopped... it was great weather for monkeys.
  • (duck quacking)
  • Narrator: Mud that sounded like a duck when he squished it. Yes, it was...
  • (duck quacks)
  • Narrator: Duck Mud.
  • (duck quacking)
  • Curious George: Huh?
  • Narrator: He knew he didn't squish that quack out. He had discovered Self-Quacking Duck Mud!
  • (duck quacking)
  • Curious George: (hooting)
  • Narrator: Okay, it wasn't Duck Mud. There were real ducks.
  • Curious George: (gasps) Ooh!
  • (duck quacking) (duck quacks)
  • Curious George: (gasps) Ooh! (hooting)
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: Puddle Ducks! See, George? I told you it was great weather for ducks.
  • Curious George: (chattering)
  • (duck quacks)
  • Curious George: (mimics quacking)
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: You're gonna be busy, George. Have fun.
  • Narrator: Jumpy Squirrel suddenly became aware of two things: the rain had stopped and that hairy duck looked familiar...
  • Jumpy Squirrel: Hmm?
  • Curious George: (chatters)
  • (duck quacking)
  • Jumpy Squirrel: (chittering)
  • Narrator: Jumpy Squirrel usually jumped away from anything new. Peeking Duck was the same way. Maybe that's why they became good friends instantly.
  • (duck quacks)
  • Jumpy Squirrel: (chitters)
  • Curious George: (mimics quacking)
  • (ducks quacking)
  • Narrator: George played by the puddle all day. He even had ducks in his dreams.
  • (Curious George dreams about him and the ducks flying)
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: I always knew you were meant to be a duck! Have a nice flight!
  • Curious George: (sighs contentedly) (snoring)
  • Narrator: For centuries, people have wondered what squirrels dream about.
  • Jumpy Squirrel: (dreams about a duck) (chittering)
  • Narrator: The next morning, George raced out for another day with Puddle Ducks!
  • (ducks quacking)
  • Curious George: (chattering)
  • Narrator: Something was wrong. The puddle was smaller. A lot smaller.
  • Jumpy Squirrel: (chittering)
  • (duck screeching, quacking)
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: George?
  • Curious George: (chattering)
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: Wow, that puddle sure shrunk.
  • Curious George: (chattering)
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: Well, puddles soak into the ground. They don't last forever.
  • Curious George: (chattering)
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: Ducks go where there's plenty of water. When the water's gone, they'll leave. It's just what ducks do.
  • (quacking)
  • Jumpy Squirrel: (chittering)
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: You want to come with me to mend fences at the Renkins or play with the ducks before they go?
  • Curious George: Mm... quack-quack.
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: Okay. I won't be too long.
  • Curious George: (hooting)
  • (duck quacking, slurping)
  • Curious George: (frantic chattering)
  • Narrator: When the water was gone, there'd be no more ducks. and there was nothing George could do about it. Nothing he could do? If ducks wanted water, then water they would have!
  • Bill: Hey, George!
  • Curious George: (chattering)
  • Narrator: Maybe the puddle water was soaking into the ground, but the water in George's pool wasn't.
  • Curious George: Ah. (hooting)
  • Narrator: And if the water didn't go away, neither would the ducks! All he had to do was bring it to them!
  • Curious George: (grunting)
  • Narrator: At the rate ducks were abandoning the puddle, they would all be gone very soon.
  • Curious George: (grunting)
  • Narrator: How could this be hard?
  • (Curious George dreams about him carrying the pool)
  • Narrator: George remembered carrying this same pool at the beginning of the summer...
  • Curious George: Oh.
  • Narrator: before it had water in it!
  • Curious George: (chattering) Ta-da!
  • Narrator: Water! He forgot to refill it.
  • Curious George: (chattering) (hooting)
  • Narrator: George found out the hard way that the hose was too short.
  • Curious George: (grunting)
  • Narrator: Maybe it didn't have to reach! He could spray it from here!
  • Curious George: Huh?
  • (duck quacking)
  • Narrator: George knew they were down to only a duck and a half. He had to get water up that hill somehow!
  • Curious George: Ah! (babbling)
  • Narrator: He needed something that held water, but was smaller than a pail.
  • Curious George: Ooh... Hmm.
  • Narrator: This was going to take a few trips.
  • Curious George: (chattering) (panting)
  • Narrator: George knew he couldn't fill the pool in time.
  • Curious George: (sighs)
  • (duck quacking)
  • Narrator: It was over.
  • Bill: George, I saw you runnin' up and down. What're you doing, trying to fill a pool one cup at a time?
  • Curious George: Uh-huh.
  • Bill: Huh. City kids. There are proper ways to carry water. I'll show ya.
  • Curious George: (off-screen) Okay.
  • Bill: Stop there or it'll be too heavy.
  • Curious George: Oh.
  • Bill: While I carry one up, you fill the other one halfway. This is called a bucket brigade.
  • (Curious George waters the hose in the bucket and gave it to Bill)
  • Bill: All done! Come on up!
  • Curious George: (chattering)
  • (duck quacking)
  • Narrator: George's idea worked-- a happy ending for ducks and duck lovers.
  • Bill: This is way too close to the edge. I'll pull it back. (grunting) Whoa!
  • (all screaming)
  • Bill: Whoa!
  • Narrator: At that moment, Jumpy remembered why he always stayed in trees.
  • Bill: Whoa!
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: George, is that y... Oh, my hat!
  • (crashing and splashing)
  • Bill: You know, there's a proper method for mop squeezing.
  • Man with the Yellow Hat: Yup, I know, Bill. George! I want to remind you, those ducks are here temporarily!
  • Curious George: (laughing)
  • Narrator: George wondered exactly how long he could make "temporarily" last.
  • (ducks quacking)
  • (child imitating monkey chatter)
  • Girl #1: George is a monkey and sometimes he does things that you can't do.
  • Girl #2: And he was trying to give the ducks more water. George found ducks, but we found geese.
  • Man: Now where do you think the water comes from that turns into this river?
  • Boy #1: It came from the rain.
  • Man: A lot of this water will actually go right through the soil and become part of the river. We're going to become animal behavior scientists.
  • Boy #2: He gave us an ethnogram, which has tons of stuff that the geese do.
  • Man: Now, check off what your goose is doing.
  • Girl #2: My goose is eating.
  • Boy #2: My goose is walking right now. Ew, one just pooped.
  • Man: Oh, I forgot to put pooping on the chart. What was the behavior that we saw the most?
  • Boy #1: It was swimming for eight minutes. Eating for five minutes.
  • Man: So now you can use your data there to tell another scientist what your goose was doing.
  • (goose honking)
