This is excellent detective work, Hello Goodbye. The evidence was before us all the time.

After all, George sang:

Hm, my lord (hare krishna)
My, my, my lord (hare krishna)

hare = another name for "rabbit"

PROVED AND PROVED.  ;D

 :o

This is amazing! Now, finally, the lyrics make perfect sense:

and life flows on within you (proving that he is, internally, a rabbit) and without you (the dead rabbit-fur coats)


Hello Goodbye, you are an awesome researcher. *tips hat*

But there are yet some more clues.  

The Oranges' Rabbit songs are produced by George Harrison, Dhani Harrison and Jeff Lynne.


Jenny Lewis and The Watson Twins' album called "Rabbit Fur Coat" includes their cover of "Handle With Care," written by Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Jeff Lynne, Roy Orbison, and Tom Petty ... The Traveling Wilburys.



The evidence continues to mount.

 :o

Excellent work, Hello Goodbye! The evidence is accumulating rapidly. Just a few more posts, and we'll have proven to the world that George Harrison was not merely the lead guitarist for the Beatles, but an actual rabbit, with habbits and affinities consistent with Oryctolagus cuniculus... er, rabbits.

I've been doing a little more research as well. Take this piece of telling evidence: the Playboy interview with The Beatles published in February 1965. In it, George states, "There's no real fun in a Bunny's fluffy tail."

How would he know that?

None of the Beatles hung out at the Playboy club. They considered that beneath them, an activity (to quote Ringo) "for dirty old men, not for the likes of us." How then does George come by this special insight into a Bunny's tail being no fun?

The only answer is... he had one.

Yes, as a rabbit he would have had to suffer the indignity of a bunny's fluffy tail. I submit for further evidence this George quote:

"I don't wear small shoes, or tight pants that squash your b***s."

Let's examine this statement in light of these recently unearthed facts.

"I don't wear small shoes..." What is he trying to tell us here? Why pick out shoes so specifically? In all the animal kingdom, what particular animal has the most urgent need for large shoes?



I leave it to you to determine.  

As to the second part of the statement ("tight pants"), we know this was wishful thinking, because George did in fact wear tight trousers on many occasions. (I will spare you the details; just click on any George picture thread.) Now, the fact is that these trousers would be tight in front and in back. In short, I believe they put pressure on the bunny tail.

Chilling example: poor George is hoisted aloft at the Whiskey-a-Go-Go club following the Jane Masfield drink-throwing incident. You can almost feel the pressure on that poor bunny tail.



IMHO I believe that George was speaking from experience, but obliquely, as the Beatles often did. I believe he would be relieved that we fans picked up on these clues, and followed them through to the truth. No man is an island-- but he may be a rabbit. And I think we should accept and love him all the more for this startling revelation.

Very nice work too, harihead.  Your deductions follow precise geometric logic.

Here's another clue:





The only animal common to both album covers is the rabbit who we know to be George.

Wow, the subtleties of this amaze me.

For example, in the Jive Bunny cover art, they tried to fool us by putting the bunny in the John Lennon position. But we know the rabbit always wears a white suit. Proof:



Generally, George was very coy about flaunting his rabbitness on his covers, but I believe this cover gives him away. Note that he is positioned in front of the car, calling attention to the plight of his fellow rabbits which too often end up as road kill. George may be subtle, but his social conscience was always active.

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.
