: As silly as you may think my inquiry may be I would like to ask about a phrase I heard while watching a Bug's bunny cartoon. In this episode he's playing the piano, pauses to the camera and smirks to say "I wish my brother George were here". Who was "George?
: I'm sure when this first aired 50+ years ago-- people got the joke.
: It's amazing to me how much of the humor I didn't get when I watched it as a child.
: (except for this one). Thanks.

It refers to pianist/showman Liberace's brother George.
