It's Time to do the Monkey

Do you have favorite cartoons you watch with the kids?  I know they tend to run all day long in most homes.  Mostly background noise but often we find ourselves humming theme songs too.  Or better yet sitting and watching them side by side with our kiddos.  My favorite is Curious George and he is back with a new season of (mis)adventures beginning Labor Day, September 5, 2011 on PBS KIDS (check local listings).  If you wish you can follow PBS KIDS on Twitter  and Facebook.    

Don't you love it when the new fall TV season starts?  Princess Emma loves to follow George as he encourages her to find her creativity.  The fun starts with three brand-new episodes - "Auctioneer George/Sock Monkey Opera", "Hamster Cam/The Great Monkey Detective", and "George and the Giant Thumb/Shutter Monkey".  And continues all season long as George explores arts themed activities including helping Betsy enter a photography contest, creating a wind symphony, sand painting the desert, and even dancing the box step. 

We were lucky enough to preview this new season.  And Princess Emma already has some favorites. 
“Sock Monkey Opera,” when Betsy gets the chicken pox and can’t see her favorite opera, Hansel and Gretel, she sends George in her place. George loves the opera so much, he decides to cheer up Betsy by performing for his itchy friend. Can one little monkey sing, dance, and act for an entire cast of characters?”  Princess Emma was thrilled to mime the show along with George.  She is a natural actress or is that a natural 'ham'?  Actually I love to see the great dances she gives to us.  What beauty and grace shine through her love of music.

Princess Emma also loved “Shutter Monkey”.   Betsy’s “Out of Sight Shapes” entry for the photo contest is sure to win first prize—that is until George and Steve accidentally ruin her pictures.  George runs around town trying to re-shoot the photographs. But finding the hidden shapes in things is hard for a little monkey!  Since Princess Emma loves to take photos this was a good one for her.  She has a whole collection of foot photos.  Yeah, she looks up from time to time but is fascinated with feet.  Or is it that like any girl she loves shoes?

As with all reviews I do, they are unpaid unless directly stated.  Today we was able to view the DVD that was provided to us.  Hey, that is nice enough.  If you don't believe me then just ask Princess Emma!
