So /x/, where is Curious George's tail? Whether your source are the books, TV show, or just your childhood memories - Curious George is missing his tail.
He's never had a tail, at least not one visible from the front. He is supposed to be either a chimpanzee (who don't have tails) or a macaque, also without visible tails.
These are just the shittiest of threads
>why does some obscure cartoon bullshit from when I was five seem different than I remember it?
it's like people can't grok that human memory is extremely shitty. when you remember something you're not even actually remembering it, you're remembering the last time you remembered it. your shit tier memory is literally a giant game of telephone.
what is so hard to understand about that? Are you faggots autistic or just trolling?
He used to have a tail...
What in the absolute FUCK!
I remembered him walking around on fours with his curly little tail in the air. I'm getting really tired of this bullshit. What the fuck is going on?
It's like I'm unconsciously dimensionally shifting or something.

>Given the light coloured face, I suggest George is a common chimp, which means the Man is going to have some real problems when George gets to be about 5, unless he’s been neutered.
the effect posited by these "dimension jumpers" a la berenstain bears and this curious george tail bullshit can be scientifically explained using psychology from the 1970s and is readily available in any highschool psych textbook
/x/ is retarded
You don't need psychology or a text book to know that sometimes things are misremembered. Anon making things more complicated than they actually are to sound like a hotshot. No gold star for you buddy but you can have a participation smiley face. :)
This whole thing is getting out of hand. Although people wigging out in these threads, whether they just have shit recollection or are playing pretend for attention are mildly amusing.
I'm right there with you buddy.
Something happened to our timeline.
I'm sure other people would notice variations and changes from their timelines, but they're simply not paying attention
I distinctly remember Curious George having a tail that was about the length of his body.
And whenever I see the word "BerenSTAIN" my eyes immediately fixate on the "STAIN" part as looking very bizarre and wrong.
For a moment I thought OP may have been right and vaguely remembered a tail on george, but that just looks completely wrong. I think this Mandela Effect is just a bunch of bullshit.
Book on ebay published in 1973.
George has no tail.
Pic from 1983 lunchbox.
My mother worked in a library throughout the 70's and 80's and it has always been berenSTAIN.
It's the author's last name for pete's sake.
Note this is the ONLY Curious George book OP has on his Facebook page.
one thing I learned about the Mandela effect is that you need to be vigilant and cognizant of these memory inconsistencies as you identify them.
if you do not share your memories with other people, you'll forget all traces of the memory, your mind will slowly assimilate to the "timeline" you are presently in and erase the idiosyncratic memories.
they're not being dismissive, they're just "natives" to this timestream.
Something happened to the timestream of those who immigrated. My theory is that brushes with death lead to people "surviving an event that statistically, should have killed them" in a tangent universe.
In other words, I think universe jumping ties directly to probability and the many-worlds theory that physicist Hugh Everett posited in 1957.
A lot of people say this, but I think the issue is that there aren't any well known, common names that end with -stain. The common spelling, featured in Jewish names, is -stein. So we all think we "remember" it being Berenstein but that's only because that's how our brains tell us it MUST have been spelled because who the fuck has a name ending in -stain?
This is a sound and sane answer. And maybe it's just me trying to believe in fairy tales to try and spice up my boring life, but I do feel a sense of weird wrongness about this whole thing. Something is just not clicking right with me about it.
just because you're from the alternative universe where it's -STAIN, you are defending it. those of us that were transported for an unknown reason are still trying to figure out what else is different.
Except it sounds like you're more scared, unable to accept that your memory isn't at all accurate, and that you're not really paying as much attention to the world around you as you thought.
Your brain lies to you, and to me, that's a lot scarier than switching between timelines.
Every single one of your answers is a delusional take on why curious fucking george doesn't have a tail.
It's to help the viewer(s) percieve "George" as humanoid, with the intellect of a child.
Makes people sympathize, and empathize with the character.
I get it, I grew up with the books and there's a part of me that wants to say Berenstein too, but I can acknowledge that I was a child and just pronounced it, and remembered it, according to the more common spelling.
The alternative is being one of the whacko's like >>16930702 here and I just can't accept that yet lol, not without more evidence.
So saying "George is a chimpanzee and chimpanzee's don't have tails" is delusional? Don't be silly.
Sure, not having a tail may help to humanize him, but it's not the penultimate reason he doesn't have one. It's because he's a chimp and chimps don't have tails.
I used to found the mandela effect very interesting until I began to read this very thread. OP fails to deliver substance and is just a lazy fuck that red about this on reddit or some bullshit. I don't know, maybe he's just another drossfag that ADR sent here to ruin every thread with his mumbo jumbo gumbo
I like how whoever made this put a watermark of their website on it, so that they can protect their intellectual property...
WHEN IT GETS STOLE
I remember it too... Whatever man, its not like our universe shifted in any important way. Just some shit for kids, who even cares. Shift me to a world with cheap solar hovercars, now we're talking
