* In the movie, George has his two greatest moments ever. First:
** '''George:'''"No! SIR! Mr Spacely!"
** And immediately afterwards, he risks death and dismemberment by entering the machinery to shut down the drill that is killing the Grungies.
* In what combines as this and a TearJerker in real life, George O'Hanlon, then greatly impaired due to partial blindness and short term memory loss from a stroke, struggled on to play the role of George, managing to finish his final line just before passing away ''in the recording studio''. Hanna-Barbera alum Iwao Takamoto related the moment in the book ''My Life with a Thousand Characters''.
* In the series we have Rosie, in her debut episode, dumping a pineapple upside-down cake over Mr. Spacely's head after he [[GeorgeJetsonJobSecurity yelled at and fired George]] in front of the family. He later apologized hired George back and even gave him a raise so he could afford to keep Rosie, noting she made the best pineapple upside-down cake that he had ever been clobbered with (he was revealed to still be eating it).
