This is a "Wild Mass Guess" entry, where we pull out all the sanity stops on theorizing. The regular entry on this topic is elsewhere. Please see this programme note.
Curious George
George is a rare manx monkey.
So there you go - the reason he doesn't have a tail like other monkeys.
  • Alternatively, George got too curious and accidentally had it lopped off.

George is actually a child who is pretending to be a monkey.
It would explain why everyone calls him a monkey when he's actually a chimpanzee. A kid wouldn't know the difference, and probably wouldn't know to correct you if you said, "Oh, you're pretending to be a monkey". Also, when chimpanzees mature, they can be very dangerous. If George is actually just a child, it would explain why he's able to run around without ever getting into trouble or taken away by animal services. And any particularly crazy happenings can probably be explained by a particularly overzealous bout of imagining on George's part.
