Curious George: Go West, Go Wild to Debut on Peacock


Peacock will be the home to a robust Curious George collection, including several films, seasonal TV specials and seasons one through nine of the beloved series.

Coming to the streaming service on September 8 is Curious George: Go West, Go Wild. In the movie, George and Ted travel to cousin Ginny’s farm for a relaxing outdoor weekend, but plans take a turn when her farm animals escape into the wild blue yonder.

With the help of Emmett, a friendly farmhand with cowboy dreams, the group sets out to track the herd through the countryside, camp outdoors, fish for their dinner, and stumble into a ghost town! Featuring a spirited new score and original songs, the story proves that anything is possible when you believe in yourself.

The music from the film features “The Other Side” by global recording artist Yuna. This is the first time in the history of Curious George films that a song is performed by a female vocalist.

Other highlights include original songs written by Michele Brourman & Amanda McBroom and score by Germaine Franco. The soundtrack will be released day and date with the film release on Peacock.

Curious George: Go West, Go Wild will also be available on Digital & DVD via Universal Pictures Home Entertainment winter 2020.

Directed by Michael LaBash from a script by Jana Howington & Sherri Stoner, the movie is voiced by Frank Welker and Jeff Bennett.

The executive producers are Ron Howard, Brian Grazer, David Kirschner, and Jon Shapiro. The producer is Deirdre Brenner.

September is Curious George’s birthday, celebrated annually as “Curiosity Month.” To mark the occasion, Peacock is also releasing three more Curious George movies on Sept. 20, including Curious George, Curious George 2: Follow That Monkey!, and Curious George 3: Back to the Jungle.

Two seasonal TV specials, Curious George: A Halloween Boo Fest and Curious George: A Very Monkey Christmas, will also be available.

Peacock currently has seasons 10 through 12 of the series, along with select episodes from Season 13. On September 20, seasons one through nine will be added.

First introduced to the world of children’s literacy over 75 years ago, the character was created by Margret and H.A. Rey in 1941 and remains one of the most beloved children’s classics of all-time. The animated series targets preschool viewers and follows the adventures of everyone’s favorite monkey and his insatiable curiosity to bring delightful antics, gentle humor and heartfelt emotion to each fun-filled episode.

With a focus on education, the Emmy award-winning program incorporates early concepts in math, science, technology and engineering and encourages children to use their imagination and expand their own investigations of the world.

The series’ voice cast includes Emmy award winner Frank Welker (Scooby Doo and Guess Who?), Jeff Bennett (The Loud House) and Rino Romano (Spaceballs: The Animated Series). The series is distributed by NBCUniversal Global Distribution.
