"George and Martha" is an animated children's television show which comprises 26 episodes made in 1999. The program revolves around the lives of two hippos: George and Martha (voiced by Nathan Lane and Andrea Martin respectively). Produced by Nelvana and initially seen on YTV in Canada, the show is based on a series of books written and illustrated by James Marshall.


George and Martha are best friends who have adventures everyday, doing most everything together. These things include roller skating, swimming in the pool, eating ice cream, and going to comedy clubs. The series teaches us what friendship is all about in a humorous way. George and Martha have a countless number of fights but always seem to work things out. It is a common misconception that George and Martha are a married couple, due to their extremely close relationship. This is dispelled, however, in the episode, The Prize, in which George and Martha win a television set. They quarrel over who can keep the television because the two live in separate houses, thus indicating that they are not married.
