Curious George: A Halloween Boo FestClose
Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Curious George: A Halloween Boo Fest is a typical franchise entry, fine for preschool kids. The film treats spooky Halloween images (for example, ghosts and spiders) with gentle humor and a very mild "boo" factor. George's friends recall the legend of a headless scarecrow (No Noggin), but even that legend is presented in a way that is not truly suspenseful or frightening. The episode blends several story elements (it's not as linear as most of George's adventures), but the adorable monkey and his world are intact as Halloween is explored and enjoyed by all.
