Watch WV PBS on Monday at 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. for the premiere of Curious George: A Halloween Boo Fest. The centerpiece of PBS KIDS’ Halloween programming lineup, this one-hour special features three original songs, including “It’s Halloween Today,” sung by Pat Monahan, the lead singer of Train.
It’s George’s first Halloween in the country, and Bill tells him and Allie about the “Legend of No Noggin” – a spooky tale about a hat-kicking scarecrow who haunts the countryside on Halloween. But is the legend real? George and Allie are determined to find out by taking a picture of No Noggin in hat-kicking action. But first, George needs to figure out what he’s going to be for Halloween so he can win the costume contest at the town Boo Festival and give the prize to the Man with the Yellow Hat. Will George be able to put together the perfect costume and find out the truth about No Noggin? Only the curious will find out!
As part of this multi-platform event, Curious George will also feature a new game for web and mobile and new streaming video content.
Play the new Halloween-themed Curious George online game at pbskids.org/curiousgeorge. In the game, players will use problem-solving and logical thinking skills as they explore a pumpkin patch with George, encountering playful spooky surprises along the way. Developed in HTML5, the game will be playable across platforms – on computers, mobile devices or tablets.
Stream clips from Curious George: A Halloween Boo Fest for free on the PBS KIDS Video App, online at pbskids.org/video and on the PBS KIDS Roku channel.
