This pic shows George and his lovely bride Olivia in the early 80’s, in Australia,where they had a home on Hamilton Island,I believe.
It also shows that George seems to have no modesty about taking care of an itch while cameras are present.
This awesome sequence of photos shows “The Great Stone Face”,as John once called him, finally surrendering to the surrounding tee-hees (Paul has already lost it) and having a laugh.

If you watch the Disney movie Jungle Book,you may notice a distinct similarity of the Vultures to The Beatles. I have heard numerous stories from “The Beatles were asked to do the voices and refused,mainly through John Lennon throwing a fit” to “The Beatles were asked to provide the voices and their scheduling simply didn’t have room for it”. Nevertheless,although one could say that the carrion birds could resemble any sixties British band, there are some individual features they have that remind me very much of The Fab Four. I cannot deliver a YouTube clip, unfortunately–that stinks,because some of the voices they did end up with are strikingly similar to the Beatle to which each one corresponds.You just gotta hear them!
Ah, well..Let’s explore.
Dizzy is our “George”.He is extremely deadpan and his voice has a most humorous resemblance to the real George’s. He is also by far the skinniest and the most hunched-over,matching Harrison’s thin frame and often hunched shoulders.
Buzzy is the “Ringo” version of the Vultures.He’s the shortest,has the deepest voice, huge beak, and virtually no chin. I might also add that when he speaks, you hear a little snare drum in the soundtrack.
The Vultures pick on Mowgli,cracking jokes at his strange apearance(they have no idea what a human is) until they realize they’ve hurt his feelings and regret doing so. Look how Dizzy is standing, looks so very like George.
Despite their shabby appearance and slight obnoxiousness, the Vultures have hearts of gold and welcome Mowgli into their circle (okay, the Beatles were more tightly knit than that). But here, Dizzy and Flaps look especially like George and Paul, I think. With Dizzy, it’s the “hair”. Flaps just has that ever-cheerful-Paul expression.
