No, my son didn’t get a cow pinata for his birthday party. Or any pinata actually, since I don’t really trust bilndfolded four-year olds swinging a bat around. I mean, would you?
My kids love watching the Curious George videos and I recently borrowed a few more DVDs from our local library. One of them is called “Curious George goes to a birthday party“.
The first episode is called “Pinata Vision” and George is invited to swing a bat at the pinata during a birthday party. Things don’t go so well and George ends up making quite a mess – a rather entertaining scene for my kids. Here’s the back of the DVD box, showing George and the pinata.
But wait, there’s more! If you take a close look at the list of episodes, you’ll notice the last episode on the DVD is called “Keep Out Cows.” And there happens to be a LOT of cows in this one, as in a whole herd, all eager to devour a large field of wildflowers while George tries his best to stop them.
The first thing Curious George manages to do is give one of the cows a good taste of the flowers. Chump!
It only takes a few minutes for the other cows to figure out where the good food is. As they make their way towards the wildflowers George tries to put arrows down for them to follow. Thanks to this episode, I learned with George that cows can’t read arrow signs.
Poor little monkey, he deserves an A for effort.
