'"Crime Games" is the first episode of The Jetsons season three, and the sixty-fourth overall. It aired on October 19, 1987 in syndicated markets that featured The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera programming blocks. It was written by Haskell Barkin, and voice directed by Gordon Hunt.

Due to interference with the TV, Elroy discovers that Mr. Cogswell's plant will be robbed by the Gridfather, which he is unable to convince George about. To appease him, George investigates anyway, which gets him into trouble with the law when the police think he's working with the Gridfather.
