Based on the popular children's books by H.A. and Margret Ray. George is a happy monkey living in the jungles of Africa, but longs for someone he can have fun with without angering them. One day, Ted, an explorer out on a safari comes into the jungle to search for an ancient relic, which he is looking for to save his hometown's natural history museum from being shut down. Leaving, he doesn't realize that a certain brown monkey is tagging along.
