PERFORMER Richard Hunt George
  Jerry Nelson Melissa
DEBUT 1977

George and Melissa Rabbit are a dancing act briefly seen doing their act at the talent show in the 1977 Christmas special Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas.

George Rabbit also appears as a background character in episodes 221 and 503 of The Muppet Show.

For the Goodspeed Opera House's musical adaptation, the roles of George and Melissa were originated by James Silson and Anney McKilligan. Their presence in the talent contest is a source of ire for Penelope Possum, who gets revenge on them for stealing from her garden by making them do faster and faster reprises of their dance until they collapse.
