Lately my son has been watching Curious George every morning while he eats his breakfast. While it’s an excellent educational show for kids and covers a lot of topics that will spark curiosity in kids to learn there are a few things about the Man in the Yellow Hat that just make me wonder.
If I had the opportunity to speak with the Man in the Yellow Hat in person there are a few things I would like to ask him or at least try to get some clarification on.
What’s the secret to your success?
You are clearly a very successful person and that’s excellent! I would love to know the secret. You appear to have lots of time for volunteering at the museum, going on wonderful trips and you also live in a GIANT apartment/condo in a major metropolitan area. I can’t get over how amazing your living quarters are and you also have a doorman! Myself, being someone who lives in Toronto I have a good idea on how much a place like that would cost and it wouldn’t be cheap! Oh and you also have a summer home out in the country!
I know it’s really none of my business but I would be very interested to know what you do for a living to keep up with this awesome lifestyle. From the many episodes I’ve watched of your show it’s really not clear exactly what you do for a living. Maybe you’re an heir? Or maybe you know your way around investing and the stock market?
Whatever you’re doing, I’d like to know so I can start living it up like you!
Who is your stylist?
You have a very refined sense of style and I admire that. I mean, yellow really is your color and it suits you very well. Even the inside of your home seems to be very well co-ordinated to your yellow style. Love those banana curtains in the kitchen by the way!
I couldn’t ever imagine you wearing any color other than yellow. The Man in the Purple Hat or The Man in the Turquoise Hat just doesn’t seem right.
Since I’m on the topic of style I might as well ask.
What's with the constant wearing of boots?
Are your feet always cold? I never see you remove your knee high boots even in the house. I’ve seen you remove your trademark yellow hat but never your boots. If you have stinky feet or need a pedicure that can definitely be taken care of – no need to be ashamed. Maybe you just really really love those knee high boots.
Could George get a job?
George seems like quite a competent monkey and I think that’s partly due to the excellent job you’re doing of raising him. Sure, George gets into a bit of trouble here and there but he obviously puts an immense amount of effort into everything he does – whether he’s successful or not. An ape with that kind of motivation could surely get a job of some kind right? Maybe he’d be able to help pay for some of his previous damages rather than the load being all on you?
Is there anything that happened on the show that you can’t put on TV?
I’m just assuming that since you are in fact the parent of a monkey there might be a few things that have happened on the show that you can’t put on TV. I can only use my imagination but I’m sure you have some interesting stories.
If you could interview a fictional character what would you ask them?
