Alan Shalleck, Curious George collaborator, has died


Alan Shalleck, 76, who collaborated with Margret Rey on dozens of Curious George books and film shorts, was found dead today at his home in Florida.

Curious George, the lovable mischievous monkey created by Ms. Rey and her husband Hans in 1939, makes his big screen debut this Friday, February 10 in Curious George.

Police are treating Mr. Shalleck's death as a homicide.


The think the name of the movie is Curious George, not "Show me the Monkey"...that's just a tagline.

Many thanks for your eagle eye. The correction has been made.
