[[folder:The Movies]]
* AdaptationExpansion: TheMovie, especially the character of Ted.
* BreakingTheFourthWall / ShoutOut: In ''Curious George 3: Back to the Jungle'', a character sitting on a bench is seen reading a newspaper with the headline "Creator/AngelaBassett." Bassett is the voice of Dr. Kulinda in the film.
* BrutalHonesty: Maggie to Ted after Ted admits that it's his fault George he let George go back to Africa.
-->'''Ted:''' I can't believe George is gone. And ItsAllMyFault.
-->'''Maggie:''' Yes. It is.
-->'''Ted:''' [[FlatWhat What?]]
-->'''Maggie:''' Ted, do you want me to tell you what you want to hear, or do want to hear what you ''should'' hear, which I'll tell you, and not just just what you think you want to hear?
* ButtMonkey: Ted takes a lot of slapstick.
* CrazyPrepared: The theater's phone tree has an option for ''Klingon''.
* CucumberFacial: George ends up in the bathroom of a woman who is doing this while also having a bath and paints her walls, followed by pouring paint in her bathtub.
-->'''Ted''': Do yourself a favor. You're gonna wanna put the cucumbers back on.
* DeadpanSnarker:
** Ted in the movie, when things don't go well for him.
** Junior. Actually Junior is ''made'' of this. Helps from being voiced by Creator/DavidCross.
* EurekaMoment: George has one in the first film while griping over the loss of Ted's job, which is when he discovers [[spoiler: the 3-inch trinket is really a pictogram map to the actual 40-foot lost shrine of Zagawa, which appears when held up to the light. This causes him to regain hope and get Ted to come with him back to Africa where the shrine is found.]]
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: During Ted's exchange with an unseen and unheard angry motorist, Ted yells back, "Well, that's physically impossible for me to do!"
* HeroStoleMyBike: Ted, in order to rescue George, ends up stealing many balloons from a balloon vendor and several kids at the zoo, and even a kite from the park to fly with. We don't see him pay for or return any of them.
* ItWasWithYouAllAlong: [[spoiler: Ted and George discover upon holding the Zagawa trinket up to the light, it creates a pictogram map to the actual lost shrine of Zagawa, which is in Africa where he came from.]]
* InkSuitActor: Most of the main characters resemble their voice actors (e.g. Maggie to Creator/DrewBarrymore, Mr. Bloomsberry to Creator/DickVanDyke, Bloomsberry Jr. to Creator/DavidCross, Clovis to Creator/EugeneLevy) Ted the Man With The Yellow Hat doesn't look ''exactly'' like Creator/WillFerrell, but the resemblance is still striking.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Ivan.
* MythologyGag: The ship George rides on back to the city is the "H. A. Rey".
* NamedByTheAdaptation: Ted is The Man In The Yellow Hat.
* TheNoseKnows: Ivan.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Ted after he lets George get taken back to Africa.
* {{Sequel}}: ''Curious George 2: Follow That Monkey'' - DirectToVideo and ''Curious George 3: Back to the Jungle'', also direct to video
* SatelliteLoveInterest: Maggie, who beyond being Ted's love interest is mainly just a voice of reason.
* SingleIssueLandlord: Only in TheMovie.
* SuperCellReception: Ted's phone go off in the depths of Africa and he comments about the "strong signal" before answering it. Then again, the movie seems to enjoy lampshading and breaking the fourth wall every so often.
* TheUnfavorite: Junior.
* WellDoneSonGuy: Junior.

* ArtisticLicenseBiology: George is not a monkey, since he lacks a tail. (Possibly, he's a chimpanzee who is simply called a monkey, a common misnomer.)

That said, he doesn't match any species of African ape either, being too small and brown and standing erect. It should be George ''was'' going to have a chimpanzee who is simply called a monkey, a common misnomer.)tail, but it was removed due to art complications.

* EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys: Although, technically, George is clearly a chimpanzee, despite what the books say. (Monkeys have tails, which George does not.)
