- "Housebound!" is the only episode where George breaks a bone in his body.
- George gets a new bicycle in "Curious George Rides A Bike", but in later episodes, he's seen riding a tricycle.
- Either the new episodes take place before this episode, George forgot how to ride a bicycle, or most likely, he crashed the new bicycle, & had to use a tricycle.
- Another option might be this: Like any other cartoon, the episodes are out of order. This means, the episodes that have George riding a tricycle are at the beginning of the timeline, & the episodes that have George riding a bicycle are at the end of the timeline.
