    Oh, I love Curious George and so do my girls. Two years running, I dressed up like Curious George for Halloween when I was little. Sad. Condolences to his family.

    Oh man, that's sad. I loved Curious George...and even had a few of the sock George's! That is weird that it's at a time when the movie is coming out.

    I wouldn't call this guy the 'co-creator' of Curious George. He was a telvision producer who brought the character to children's television. H.A. Rey was the creator of Curious George, and he's been dead for decades.

    Regardless, he played a big part of bringing Curious George to the public, and doesn't change the fact that his death is a tragedy.

    BOYNTON BEACH, Florida (AP) -- Two South Florida men have surrendered and confessed to killing Alan Shalleck, who collaborated on bringing the beloved children's story of the mischievous monkey "Curious George" to television, police said Thursday.

    Rex Spears Ditto, 29, of Pembroke Pines, and Vincent J. Puglisi, 54, of Oakland Park, voluntarily surrendered late Wednesday at the Boynton Beach Police Department.

    They were arrested on charges of first-degree murder, armed home invasion, aggravated battery and dealing in stolen property, police said.

    From Oct 2007:

    http://www.seattletimes.com/nation-w...-collaborator/

    A man pleaded guilty Thursday and was sentenced to life in prison for killing Alan Shalleck, who collaborated with the co-creator of “Curious George” to bring the mischievous monkey to TV and a series of book sequels.

    As part of a plea deal, Rex Ditto, 31, pleaded guilty to first-degree murder and robbery with a weapon. He is not eligible for parole...

    Shalleck had 83 blunt force injuries and more than three dozen stab wounds, including to the abdomen, neck and groin, an autopsy revealed.
    From July 2008:

    A judge sentenced Vincent Puglisi to life in prison on Wednesday after a jury found him guilty of first-degree murder and robbery with a deadly weapon.
