Why is Curious George rated G? Curious George is rated G by the MPAA

Concerns in this movie are very limited, however because of the young target age group it is aimed at, we’ve provided this detailed content list:
A man is accidentally shot by a tranquilizer dart. A clumsy character throws a machete. A man selfishly determines to have his way and destroys documentation that may thwart another’s goals. A man falls from the first story of a building, but lands in some bushes and avoids injuries. George is often in peril, including a traffic accident where he is nearly run over and floating away after taking some helium balloons. Technically, Ted steals balloons that he takes from other children at the zoo so he can rescue George. And for children likely to mimic what they see on the screen, George eats fireflies with a humorous consequence (Ted also does the same).
