    • Are you kidding? I can't believe I'm voting in such a ridiculous poll.

Okay Ladies, if you were not happily married (and if you were animated), would you date the Man in the Yellow Hat from "Curious George"? Or would his eccentric wardrobe get in the way.?

If his personality appealed to me, I would date him, but possibly work on his fashion sense. BTDT BTW and it worked out well :D.

No! He's evolved over the years, but I have problems with exporting native wildlife for sale to zoos.

I don't know...I can't help but think Will Ferrell and as much as I like him, no I couldn't date him. ;)

No, he's a total airhead. He trusts that curious monkey way too much.

 

:iagree: How many times will he just warn George to be good before he realizes that he needs to follow through with a bit more supervision?

Oh yuck. If you put it that way.... I couldn't date Will Ferrell either. That guy gives me the creeps.

I may sound totally materialistic here, but I would be really swayed by the convertible, the country house, the penthouse apartment with a doorman, and the fact that he must apparently have a house keeper. I think I would probably go for it... except that I'm probably allergic to monkeys.

So yeah, the guy from Lazy Town would probably be a better choice. Or maybe Professor Doofenshmirtz from Phineas and Ferb. I really think I could change his evil ways...

Not so much the Man in the Yellow Hat, but the Kratt brothers from Kratt's Creatures in 1994? Oh yeah, I'd date them.

 

Maybe this needs a different poll.

 

What character on a children's show would you date?

Uh, no. Too tall and too lax and a little aloof. Plus, I was always under the impression that he was possibly in the closet (which isn't a problem for me, except I wouldn't exactly be his type ;)).

 

My kids love George, own several books, and check at least one more out every week at the library, but I seriously want to scream at the end of every story when the monkey's huge screw-ups are overlooked because he stumbled unintentionally into one nice deed. Stole a hot air balloon? No worries, because it's somehow the same exact day someone's stranded on Mount Rushmore and you just happened to be in the airspace! If I was the Man with the Yellow Hat, there would be no more vacations. Ever!

 

As far as other shows, I grew up with a crush on Steve from Blue's Clues.

I wouldn't date anyone while married, even if unhappily, even if I were animated. :tongue_smilie:

No way!! If he can't take care of a pet monkey, he is clearly too irresponsible to care for my children. Seriously, can you imagine him leaving a toddler at home, "Don't be too curious!" Yeah, right!:lol:

Hmm. I guess I've never thought about the man in the yellow hat that way!

 

When my kids were tiny, I totally had a mini-crush on Steve from Blues Clues. Actually, I had a crush on naps and and Steve helped facilitate those. :D

Exactly!

NOOOO, he annoys me. And his pet monkey is nothing but trouble. TROUBLE, I tell you! Besides, any man who dresses monochromatically has issues that I don't have time to deal with.

 

What she said.

 

Anyway, my Picture Book Crush is already established: Chrysanthemum's dad. Granted, he's spoken for (and a mouse, but whatever), but I adore him. He tells his daughter that the girls picking on her are "envious and begrudging and discontented and jaundiced." Take that, Yellow Hat Man.

He won't make a very good father, I'm afraid.

Nope. He is clueless and irresponsible. If that is how he takes care of a monkey, how could I trust him with a child?

 

No way!! If he can't take care of a pet monkey, he is clearly too irresponsible to care for my children. Seriously, can you imagine him leaving a toddler at home, "Don't be too curious!" Yeah, right!:lol:

 

:iagree:, I actually went with the Are you kidding option. Because I don't mind George and would if I was an animated character and single date another animated character with a pet monkey.

 

That being said the man with the yellow hat is foolish. Seriously every episode we hear, "Be a good little monkey!" Really? The monkey gets into mischief every day multiple times, watch it, don't leave it to get into more trouble!

 

Oh and he did leave a little girl alone at one point in time. He was watching George and Allie (she appears to be around 4) at his country house while they were playing together. Then he heads out to town to the store, and tells them "Be a good little monkey and girl." Really? If George was a child he would have been removed due to neglect by CPS by now.

 

Almost all the adults in the tv show and movie annoy me actually they are all a few cards short of a full deck.

 

I guess that may have actually turned into a rant, maybe I've been watching too much Curious George recently. I actually like the movie and the show, but I can't stand most of the adults in the show.

His wardrobe wouldn't bother me.

 

His inability to properly supervise and discipline his Primate Pet-Child would. ;) That little bratty monkey gets away with murder -- well, almost:

 

"The Man with the Yellow Hat showed George that his friend was not moving. George was very sad and promised never to play with controlled substances again. Then he and the Man with the Yellow Hat went out for ice cream. The End."

 

Okay, I guess that would be involuntary manslaughter, but still.

This has nothing to do with the question, but I will always remember a line from the "Curious George" cartoon. Someone is on the phone, and says, "I gotta go. There's a monkey and a weiner dog at the door." For some reason, that totally cracked me up! And still does. :D

:iagree: and why is George treated like a hero when he messes up and then things happen to work out. What is that teaching? Hey do what you want, and if it somehow comes out ok then it doesnt matter that you totally disobeyed. George needs Ritalin...

He's a kidnapper! He captured George in the jungle of Africa and brought him back with the intention of putting him the zoo. Actually, he did put him I the zoo. then George escaped! George should have been left to live in the wild. I was shocked when I read the original book recently. :lol:

Can I be a shameless self-promoter and mention that I actually wrote a whole newspaper column about it? :D

 

I should have done this poll before I wrote that article though, because I totally didn't factor in the lack of supervision argument.

I don't think it would work out. George is outta control, and he needs some serious discipline. I'm afraid that urging the Man in the Yellow Hat to spank his monkey would lead to some confusion. Especially if I insisted he spank the monkey in public.

Yes!

 

A while back on this board, someone asked which fictional man would you run off with, or something such. He was my answer. He's a genius, he runs marathons, he's got two houses, he's friends with everyone and he's got the patience to put up with that monkey.

TRUE STORY: I cried when I moved from the eastern side of the state to the city. On my way home first day of work (I was newly21), driving my big pick up truck in the midst of snazzy sporty things in stop and go traffic on the highway, there was a guy....doing that.....while driving.....and no intent to cover it up. It haunts me to this day.

 

But as for The man in the hat. He does not really have the best parenting skills. He seems like he'd be pretty clumsy...if ya know what I mean :lol:
