Hopkin Green Frog – if i lost my frog

Der Hopkin Green Frog muss seit 2004 an mir vorbeigesprungen sein.

Hand-drawn fliers requesting the whereabouts of a lost frog were spotted in various places around Seattle during 2004. Although there were several revisions of the flier, the later popularised version included two drawings of the frog alongside some grammatically incorrect text written in what appears to be a child’s script, which read as follows:

if I looking for frog
him name is hopkin green frog
