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.
Very mild cartoon action, no injuries: George plops into a pile of leaves; The Man in the Yellow Hat falls down stairs; George's friend Bill appears to be chased by an army of pumpkins. There are some shadowy and brief spooky effects surrounding a haunted house and The Legend of No Noggin, a headless scarecrow who knocks hats off people.
Even mysterious (or scary) events may have a logical explanation.
Curious George is a popular franchise of books, films, TV, and merchandise. Several trailers for other Universal Home Entertainment movies for kids.
