- Awesome Art: The art-style of the first film is praised. It has a soothing watercolor look to it.
- Awesome Music: The original Curious George film has an exceptional soundtrack by Jack Johnson that at one point was #1 on the Billboard 200 and is arguably better-remembered than the film itself. A couple of the most notable tracks are the dreamy, mellow "Upside Down" and the catchy "People Watching."
- Hilarious in Hindsight: This isn't the last time Will Ferrell and David Cross would be in an animated movie together...
- Periphery Demographic: The first film has a following amongst animation buffs for being one of the few traditionally animated American films of the mid-to-late 2000s.
YMMV / Curious George (2006)
