Well here's another clue for you all.....

George and Peter Cottontail share a predilection for top hats.  Just a coincidence?

Good catch, Hello Goodbye! We are certainly sewing this case up.
 

More hard rabbit facts:

1. George was a vegetarian.

2. George was fleet of foot.

3. Ever since he was a lad, he loved gardens and digging in the dirt.

Say no more!!!



(humming) "Here goes Georgie Cottontail, running down the bunny trail..."


Beatles lyrics

The other Beatles also appear to have been at pains to inform us (craftily) about George's true nature. I put in very little thought (trust me) to come up with two glaring examples:

1. Fixing a Hole: One of John's favorite books was Alice in Wonderland. Right in Chapter 1 she goes "Down the Rabbit Hole" and meets the White Rabbit.  :o (see photos above).

By "fixing the hole" the Beatles are attempting to redirect the world away from stumbling upon the truth about their friend.


2. Rocky Raccoon:

-- The title features a four-legged furry animal whose name begins with "r"

-- "Rocky" was the name of George's guitar-- could Paul be any more obvious?  

Again, this song is clearly designed to protect their friend. Paul musically expresses his fears of George being hunted down and turned into wabbit soup.


I'm sure there are many more examples.

I've been thinking about this a lot today. And I thought there had to be clues in George's songs. I found this in Within You Without You:

We were talking-about the love we all could share-when we find it
To try our best to hold it there-


Obviously, they're trying to hide the animal...

That's a pretty good clue, Bobber! Subtle, but I'd expect that from George.


Here is some photographic evidence that your clue is on track.



First, George is trying his best to hold the cat there, as it says in the song.

Second, his arm is partly hiding the animal.

Third, the cat appears to be licking or biting him. Why would George's own cat want to eat him? Because he's a rabbit!

PROVED AND PROVED TO THE NINETEENTH POWER!

Further proof indeed!

I'd like to add this never-before-seen photograph of Ringo and Pattie between takes while filming A Hard Day's Night.  Ringo advises Pattie to wear the rabbit fur collared coat in order to attract shy George's attention.




The scheme proved to be highly effective.

It's the bow tie. It impresses everyone.




Raxo, that thumbs up nearly killed me!  ;D

And of course I noticed his teeth. I have been studying him for rabbit features very closely, trust me. ;) Cheers!

By the way, that "thumbs up" is clearly the shadow of that rabbit inside that wizard's hat you posted (thanks to Sandra we can see now those two pics very close and it's easy to real-ice!!!  :o ;D

You know, being reincarnated as a rabbit might not be so bad. Maybe George is hopping around some weed patch somewhere having the time of his life. Hare rama.

Hey, I'm a Minnesota gal, with a fine, full mouth of lovely, slightly crooked teeth myself. I look dangerously equipped in the snapping department. Stand back and fear me! *feels sympathetic big-teeth bonding with George and Patti*




Raxo, interesting pictures about the traditional and historical tendencies of rabbits to blow horns. This is a particularly good clue, because everyone knows that Paul was the only Beatle who ever played a trumpet. Yet George is doing so in these pictures-- why?

Also, the other Beatles are in disguise. These are not very good disguises, but then, George isn't disguised much either; his rabbitness is only obscurred by the ready-made image of the Beatles. What they are saying to us is, "You don't really have to look very deep. The truth is there for you to see if you look."

John: Remove your goggles, and you will see he is a rabbit.

Ringo: Take the boot from your head and you will hear he is a rabbit.

Paul: I want my trumpet back.

Obviously because George already knew none of the others couldn't play it as a rabbit, ... and they tried  8):
