Kermit from the muppets

A frog he would a-wooing go,
(wonder who Rowley was? He appears again in Rowley, powley, pudding and pie.)
'Fellowship of the Frog' is one of Edgar Wallace's decent crime novels.

Earliest fictional amphibian I recall was Freddy the Frog, in a children's comic otherwise long forgotten to me!
I forget where, a geology text-book probably, but I once saw a reference to a very early (BC?) Chinese seismometer whose ornate indicator was based on bronze frogs that dropped balls from their mouths. I don't know if the number of disgorged spheres related to the severity of the earthquake.
Likewise Brian - I thought Martin was studying this for his forthcoming best-seller, The Development of the Railway Point From The Mines Plateway Stub to the HS2 Diamond Crossover.

Wikipedia: Old Rowley was the name of a stallion racehorse belonging to King Charles II (1660-1685) of England. The Rowley Mile Racecourse at Newmarket, Suffolk, developed by the king as a national centre for horseracing, is named after the horse. As the stallion was libidinous and "renowned for the number and beauty of its offspring", Old Rowley became a nickname for the king himself, who had many mistresses and sired many illegitimate children.
