VIDEO: Watch the Adorable “Playing with Curious George” Show at Universal Studios Japan

Curious George, known as Osaru no Jouji in Japanese, is a popular and beloved childrens character known the world around. Millions of kids and adults alike recognize the playful monkey and his yellow-suited companion, so it was no surprise a few years back when Universal Studios Japan brought Curious George to the park for some kids entertainment! Set in an animator’s studio, Playing with Curious George follows an animator who brings a sketch of Curious George to life, and some antics as well as fun ensue where kids can play and dance along with the lovable monkey himself! It’s really quite a cute show, and you can watch it all below!

Isn’t it adorable? Universal Studios Japan lacked a significant kids show until Playing with Curious George opened in 2018. It fills a similar role as A Day in the Park with Barney at Universal Studios Florida, which you can also find on our YouTube channel.

This is great footage! Thanks for posting it. It’s the same concept as the Woody Woodpecker show that was in the animation studio the winter of 2003 (likely earlier). We had a show in the park, and this attraction was right around the corner – it’s hard to capture how great it looks on video, but you did a great job. Thank you so much for sharing this!
