The original series was written by the husband-and-wife team (1939) of Hans Augusto (H. A.) Rey (german born illustrator/author) and Margret Rey (german born writer/illustrator). The Jewish couple fled Paris in June 1940, on self-made bicycles, carrying the Curious George manuscript with them

Aside from George himself, the only recurring character in the original adventures is the Man with the Yellow Hat who is George’s best friend. The Man often facilitates George’s adventures by taking him somewhere, and even more often resolves the tension by intervening just in time to get George out of a tight spot. He is always seen wearing a bright yellow suit and a wide brimmed yellow hat. The Man is never mentioned by name in the original adventures or in any subsequent content over more than six decades.. He is always referred to as “The Man” or fully “The Man with the Yellow Hat”. But aside from those two names, he is unnamed in the original series and telefilm books. When people speak to George about the Man, they often refer to him as “Your friend”.
