Curious George Airs Special Episode About Animal Shelters

Generations of children have taken their first steps toward exploring all of the wonders that the world has to offer by reading the adventures of a playful primate, and on February 4th the television version of Curious George will teach little ones about the need to help shelter animals.

In “Where’s the Firedog?” George’s four-pawed pal Blaze finds himself in an animal shelter when he wanders away from his home at the firehouse.

The special Curious George episode is part of a week of shelter-themed stories on PBS Kids, which will also shine a spotlight on pets in need in an episode of Martha Speaks, featuring the voice of guest star Jennifer Garner.

In case you miss the February 4th premiere of “Where’s the Firedog?” you’re not in the doghouse, as PBS Kids will rebroadcast the episode. Check your local listings for the program’s airtime in your area.
