A rare just-spooky-enough movie for the small and/or sensitive viewer
Verified purchase
Beautiful visually, and a lot of fun for the Halloween lover in me, yet not toddler-unfriendly. We bought this because after it was done being free on Netlfix, one of our kids still wanted to watch it over, and over, and over... luckily, Curious George is something nobody else in the house minds or gets irritated by, unlike a lot of other kids' series. This one captures just the right blend of fun, with a country-style Harvest-based Halloween celebration complete with prizes for the largest pumpkin, fun costumes (but a marked lack of anything like witches, zombies, etc), a spooky story similar (but much nicer than!) to the Headless Horseman involving a scarecrow called No Noggin, and comic adventures. Highly recommend as a Halloween movie for young children, highly sensitive kids, and adults who prefer to keep Halloween away from certain themes, particularly supernatural horror. And there was nothing actually supernatural in this one: there really was a rational explanation for the legend of the scarecrow. But due to George's well-intentioned mishaps, the legend (and everyone's enjoyment of it) lived on, after all!

Only Halloween thing we watch
Verified purchase
The No-Noggin story line is perfect for little kids. My 3 year old loved it and was not scared at all. Basically there is a legend of a scarecrow kicking off hats which left people scared, but in no real danger. Plus, in the end it really was a cute little animal doing it, so there is no hidden evil.

This was really the best show I have seen to prepare little ones for the nice side of Halloween celebrations. It deals with saying boo as a game, dressing up, going to fall festivals, carving pumpkins, scary stories (that are not real or evil), being scared over things we should not be, etc. Plus the characters go through the process to solve a mystery.

Overall, we don't do much for Halloween because we don't like the evil side so many celebrate these days, but we do enjoy this No-noggin show, dressing up, and a fall festival as long as its kid friendly.

I purchased this for son and I to watch because he was really interested in watching Curious George that week, and we saw part of this movie several times on the PBS Kids app. I kind of wanted to see how the whole thing went and I thought it would be better to see the whole movie instead of just a part of it. My son is two (almost three) and has watched it a couple of times. He seems to like it, it holds his attention for periods. The story is not bad if you follow it. It is basically about ghost called "No-noggin" that steals peoples' hats every Halloween. There are some interesting plot twists, and it is an original Halloween ghost story. I think Curious George is a good way to introduce young children to Halloween. The only reason I give it four stars is I found the direction to be a bit hectic and nervous, as if they were trying to fit in lots and lots of dialogue and multiple storylines in what is basically a 40 minute short about a monkey. Next time, keep it simple guys, think family trip to a farm slow, and I think your audience would appreciate it. After watching it 2 or three times, I would say that it is a lot of fun and deserves repeat watchings. Perhaps it will become a part of your family's Halloween traditions in the years to come, as I suspect it will in mine!

Not for Little Kids
Verified purchase
While some younger children may be brave, the creepy 'feelings' and Mr. No Noggin sent my 4 and 6-year-old girl and boy to bed in tears insisting they sleep together with the light on. I had thought it was a fool proof Halloween choice that wouldn't scare them, but I was wrong!

One of my grandson's favorite videos to watch with his Papa!
Verified purchase
We first watched this last year on one of the streaming services. For some strange reason, starting last October, that particular service stopped running it. You would think that at least through Halloween, but nope. A few weeks ago my grandson asked if we could watch it. After checking to see if it was back on the service (it wasn't) I went ahead and purchased the video on Amazon. It arrived in a few days and we immediately sat down to watch.

He loves the story of Curious George and No Noggin. The funny thing is, he's not a big Curious George fan. But he loves the Halloween Boo Fest. Great story and lots of fun to watch with him. Highly recommended.

Our kids (2.5 | 4 yo) LOVE Georgie!I downloaded this onto my devices so they an access him where ever we are. The movie is adorable and the songs are catchy! Our son started watching this last year over Halloween and still askes to see Georgie! He's timeless, I loved him when I was little and here he is again almost forty years later entertaining my kids! I love that the cartoon is iadorable and family friendly, after all I don't want our kids to grow up too fast and want to keep them as innocent for as long as possible! I highly recommend him to any toddler that loves fun!

A delightful Halloween film for kids
Verified purchase
Based within the Curious George universe as defined by the TV show, this short movie plays like an elongated TV episode. It's a self-contained storyline, by setting up the characters and mystery elements without requiring pre-requisite knowledge of the universe. The setups, exposition, and climax of the story all play out naturally and the story arc is well-defined. Without getting into spoilers, the main "villain" is presented like a mystery whodunit and can be quite compelling to younger viewers. Highly recommended for children aged 2-7, especially those who are already fans of the TV show, as most of the side characters from the show make an appearance.

Too scary
Verified purchase
I thought this would be lighthearted for little ones as it's Curious George, but no. It's was far to scary for my 6 year old. He was afraid to the dark and had bad dreams for weeks after watching this.
