Having huge soft spots for both real animals and pretend ones (Curious George, in particular), there's no way I can't post this.
In an upcoming episode of "Curious George" airing on UNC-TV, the lovable cartoon monkey will teach children about animal shelters and the importance of keeping pets safe and happy. The episode, "Where's the Firedog?", airs at 8 a.m. on Monday, February 4, on UNC-TV, with multiple repeats on UNC-KD (search the UNC-TV schedule).
In the episode, George's canine friend, Blaze, keeps running away from the firehouse and eventually ends up at an animal shelter. George and firefighter Sam learn to keep Blaze safe by putting a tag on her collar, walking her on a leash, and making sure she's never lonely. Awwww.
According to PBS Kids, "Curious George" is the #1 TV program for preschoolers. It's currently in its seventh season.
