Georgie

Georgie the hippo.

Baby Sinclair is mesmerized by the latest annoying children's idol, Georgie, an orange hippo. When Georgie comes to town, Baby demands to see him but Earl won't wait in the long line. Baby throws a tantrum, and in desperation, Earl dons a costume and imitates Georgie to stop the Baby's cries. Unfortunately, Earl is arrested for copyright infringement by Georgie's people and is thrown in jail. Earl escapes with the help Jean-Claude and Brigitte who are members of the Parents' Resistance who see Georgie for what he truly is: a money-grabbing, tax evading slimeball and Earl ultimately exposes him. When Roy finds himself on camera, he unexpectedly becomes the new kid's TV star.
