The Man in the Yellow Hat

Does anyone else find him just a bit disturbing?

My kids sometimes watch Curious George on PBS.

This single man lives with his pet monkey and uses him to lure in all the neighborhood kids. Seriously...he spends a lot of time with the kids from his apartment building without their parents around. I've even seen an episode where he brings a couple kids from his building for a weekend retreat at his house in the country.

No way would I send my kids with a man and his monkey to spend a weekend in the middle of nowhere.

I really hate that he doesn't have a name. If that isn't a little creepy I don't know what is.

Yes I always wondered if Curious George was so curious how come he never asked the man with the yellow hat why he doesn't have a name...chew on that one...oh and Katie you always make me laugh.

Very funny.
I always wondered why the monkey's good deed at the end of every story always made up for all his bad deeds. Shouldn't he just get grounded once in a while?

You're so funny! I never thought about him that way... but it does bother me occasionally that he has no name...

I never looked at it in that way. I guess I really didn't pay much attention to him. It really is disturbing though. Thanks for helping me look at him in a whole new way:p You are always so funny:)
