Verdi Makes Appearance In 2006 Curious George Film

"Ms. Plushbottom, Ted's neighbor, wanted her apartment painted like a picture of the Opera Hall. The painters only painted three colors on the wall. The colors on the wall were blue, red, and yellow. Mrs. Plushbottom was voiced by Joan Plowright, who starred in films such as Dennis the Menace (1993) and 101 Dalmatians (1996)." After firing the painters, the diva decides to soak in the tub while opera plays throughout the apartment. Watch the video clip from Curious George: Show Me The Monkey (2006) that features the cabaletta "Tutto sprezzo che d'Ernani" from Ernani by Giuseppe Verdi, as well as a clip of Leona Mitchell singing the full aria from the Metropolitan Opera, after the jump.
