This may sound odd, but it is for a new M. E. project ... can anyone think of any more well-known frogs to ad to this list ??

Kermit from the muppets

The frog king from shrek

Toad from wind in the willows

These things are important in the modern world ... we must be aware of literary giants like these ... I hope someone can add a few names please ?

A frog he would a-wooing go,
Heigh ho! says Rowley,
...

(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.[1] As the stallion was libidinous and "renowned for the number and beauty of its offspring",[2] Old Rowley became a nickname for the king himself, who had many mistresses and sired many illegitimate children.

Boggy the Frog in Into the Happy Glade and By A Silver Stream. Written by Trevor Dudley-Smith, aka Elleston Trevor, who is more well-known for his "The Flight of the Phoenix".

Bit obscure, but true!
