George is an anthropomorphic moose who wears an orange shirt, tan pants, and green shoes.
Since his first appearance in the episode, "Arthur's Eyes", George was depicted as a background character, and was not made into a major character until "Arthur's Dummy Disaster" much later. This could be as a result of how quiet he is at school, and the fact that he is also rather shy. Despite his timidness, George is shown to be a very kind character as he is willing to help his friends even if it means sacrificing his own needs. However, his quiet attitude is often misinterpreted by the other characters, and as a result he is often forgotten and left out of many of their events. It is the result of being isolated from the other characters that causes George to play mostly with his dummy Wally. George is shown to treat Wally very much like a real person (even though he is well aware he isn't real), and often discusses his problems at school with him as he rarely gets the chance to speak with his classmates. George is defender for the Lakewood Elementary Soccer Team.
