He's ridden a bike. Gotten a medal. Flown a kite. Learned the alphabet. And gone to the hospital.
But in his 75 years, there is one thing Curious George has only now discovered: Ramadan.
George's famous curiosity — which has taken him to Christmas, Hannuka and Easter celebrations since the series was started in 1941 — has now brought him to the Muslim holy month.
