PBS Kids has announced plans to air the first Curious George Halloween special. The special, Curious George: A Halloween Boo Fest
, will air on October 28th. Curious George is seen surrounded by pumpkins in the image above. George learns a spooky tall about a hat-kicking scarecrow in the special. He also tries to win the costume contest at the Boo Festival so he can win a prize and give it to the Man with the Yellow Hat. The show features three original songs, including "It's Hallowee Today," sung by Train frontman Pat Monahan.
PBS Kids will also launch an online Halloween-themed Curious George game at the end of this month at http://pbskids.org/curiousgeorge/
. In the game, kids explore a pumpkin patch with George.
