IN ’96, THAT’S A FACT. ♪ BOTH: COAST TO COAST,

THE ORIGINAL COLONIES? GEORGIE: YEAH BARRY WE
WERE THE LAST, THE 13TH. BARRY: WAS THE FIRST BRITISH
SETTLEMENT IN ATLANTA? GEORGIE: PSCH, NAH, THE FIRST
SETTLEMENT WAS IN SAVANNAH! IF YOU LIKE THE ATLANTIC OCEAN
WE’VE GOT PLENTY OF BEACH, THE APPALACHIAN MOUNTAINS IN
THE NORTH BORDER TENNESSEE. GEORGIA HAS SWAMPS,
MARSHES, RIVERS, AND FORESTS AND OUR STATE PARKS ARE
GREAT FOR US AND THE TOURISTS. WE HAVE MORE SOIL TYPES
THAN ANY OTHER STATE, OUR LOAM, SILT, AND CLAY
MAY BE BROWN, RED OR GREY. ♪ BOTH: COAST TO COAST,

HERE, CAN YOU GUESS WHO? BARRY: UH, WHO? GEORGIE: HE WAS
A PEANUT FARMER. THE 39TH PRESIDENT,
JIMMY CARTER. SO THE STORY GOES, OUR STATE FLOWER
IS A CHEROKEE ROSE. OUR STATE AMPHIBIAN’S
THE GREEN TREE FROG. THIS ONE’S MY BEST
FRIEND HIS NAME IS ZOG. ZOG: AH HA HA,
