A Very Venture Christmas
Tim Cratchit stands near the resting place of his beloved mentor, Ebenezer Scrooge. Tim owes his health, his medical education, and his current life to his "Uncle" Ebenezer. Exhausted, cold, and grieving, Tim turns toward his lodgings. I shall do it all, alone if need be! Unconsciously, his pace increases and his limp disappears. George engages in semi-dangerous activities, like climbing to the top of a Christmas tree that then knocks down all the trees. In one scene, the Man in the Yellow Hat and his friend accidently start a fire and the fire truck arrives, but it's brief and treated lightly.
Previews include commercials for Sunmaid and Chuck E. Cheese, as well as toy-oriented movies like Barbie. George creates several messes and engages in semi-dangerous activities, like climbing to the top of a Christmas tree that then knocks down all the trees.

As the days pass, George and the Man prepare for Christmas by shopping for a tree, writing cards, buying a turkey and singing in a holiday pageant. The usual monkey antics ensue where George knocks down all the trees at the Christmas tree lot, and breaks the snow-maker at the museum, but his accidents are easily resolved.
But as the holiday gets closer, both the monkey and the man worry about what to get for the other. This Curious George holiday movie includes singing, which fits the holiday theme, but seems slightly out of place. It's meant to reassure the Man that he is a good "parent" for George, but it really doesn't fit with the story -- or make much sense.
Curious George might annoy some parents, with the squeaky monkey sounds and rather vanilla storylines, but kids get a kick out of the silly monkey no matter what. This movie is no exception -- there are plenty of giggly moments, like when George tries to make a tomato snowman to please the Man in the Yellow Hat, but ends up making a big ketchup-y mess, or when George's friend makes up funny songs to familiar Christmas carol tunes.
It's hard not to like Curious George, even if his antics are predictable. What have you found to be the best gifts to give? What are the best kind of gifts to receive? Have you ever made gifts instead of buying them? What about giving someone something like a song, like George's friend does for her aunt?
