    The song "You And I And George" is included in the album "Rowlf: Old Brown Ears Is Back" It goes a little something like this:

    You and I and George
    Were strolling through the park one day
    And you held my hand, as if to say
    I love you
    We came to a brook
    And George fell in and drowned himself
    And floated out to sea
    Leaving you alone with me

    Now what I want to know is did George fall, or was he pushed?

    Your verdict please :sympathy:

    Why didn't they make a "Bear on Patrol" episode to explain that (Rowlf interrogated in the Police Station) ? :)

    Rowlf sang twice this song at the Muppet Show : one time in the Phyllis George episode (the Muppet Awards) and the other time... Well, I don't remember ! :zany:

    Rowlf sang it in the Juliet Prowse episode (U.K. spot) from season 1.

    Thanks, Winslow. I remember the sketch of Kid Fozzie with Rowlf in the saloon in the Juliet Prowse episode, but I didn't remember the song "You and I and George".

    Yeah, those U.K. spots... thank goodness for DVD sets, eh? Or we'd never have seen that ever-popular classic. :)

    That was the funniest song besides Simon Smith and his dancing bear!

    Rowlf is a slippery character. He changes his motives in The Wishing Song faster than you can say "there goes a butterfly."

    I love "You and I and George", especially Rowlf's intro: "It sold two copies. George bought one and I bought one. Where were you?"

    Haha, what a great question. Maybe it was just really good timing and he "tripped" on a well placed rock... >_>

    Did Rowlf ever sing "The Wishing Song"? Gonzo did in the Madeline Kahn episode, but I didn't know it was used again. Or am I thinking of the wrong song?

    I think that George fell in, hence the line that he fell in and drowned himself. My favorite song was probably I'll never hurt an onion. THAT was hilariously bad.
