* SpeechImpairedAnimal: "Roh roy, Rorge!" Depending on how you look at it, Astro is either the forerunner of WesternAnimation/ScoobyDoo in this regard, or a futuristic descendant of the same. Much like Scooby, this characteristic is subtly dropped around the 80s revival, notably during ''WesternAnimation/TheJetsonsMeetTheFlintstones''. Though it is brought back for TheMovie.

* GeorgeJetsonJobSecurity: The {{Trope Namer|s}}. When it came to Mr. Spacely, George had absolutely zero protection, and when he wasn't fired he lost whatever bonuses he obtained from being part of Spacely's latest scheme just as easily. Spacely threatened to fire George for any reason that he could threaten him for, from arriving late to work up to not voting in favor of Spacely's dog in a canine competition or winning a ''Family Feud''-style game show that had the Jetsons and the Spacelys facing off (thankfully for George and his family, [[SecondPlaceIsForWinners the second prize was exactly what they needed]]).

George has also been made the guinea pig for an indestructible outfit (the outfit survived the rigorous tests, George not so much), shipped to [[PlaceWorseThanDeath Places Worse Than Death]] (Outer ''Moon''golia, for example) and endured varying amounts of physical abuse from his BadBoss.
