A graphical spoof of the Curious George children's book series.

The Curious George Brigade (CGB) is an anarchist collective (or, as it styles itself, an "elusive anarchist thinktank") based in Queens, New York. It is a part of the larger CrimethInc. network.[1]

The CGB produced the book Anarchy in the Age of Dinosaurs, a meditation on anarchism which displays tendencies of post-left anarchy along with videos, articles and a zine about urban anarchy.

A CGB member, Elliott "Smokey" Madison, was arrested on September 24, 2009 in Pittsburgh, and had his Jackson Heights, Queens home (the anarchist collective known as Tortuga House) raided by the FBI and the Joint Terrorism Task Force on October 1, 2009.[2][3][4][5][6]
