NPR stories about Curious George

Curious George — who was originally named Fifi — turns 75 this year. Despite some dated themes (we're looking at you, Man with the Yellow Hat) George is now a multimillion-dollar franchise. Margaret Rey says she and her husband had no idea what Curious George would become. "We loved monkeys and just wrote a book about a monkey," she said. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt hide caption
