Elroy is fond of anything that involves gadgets and robotics, and is at one time, an active member of the Space Cub Troop.

Behind the scenes

  • In an interview with The Wichita Eagle, Daws Butler cited his four sons – David, Don, Paul, and Charles – as influence for his portrayal of Elroy, citing them as "technical performers" for the role. They apparently offered ideas about Elroy's portrayal to their father when Butler worked at his home studio.[1]

In popular culture

Main article: List of pop culture references to Jetsons
  • In the Full House episode "The First Day at School," Danny has bought a Jetsons lunch box for Stephanie's first day of kindergarten. Joey makes the flying car sound effects as he takes it to her. He then pretends to be George saying hello to Jane, Elroy, and Astro. Stephanie uses it again in "Joey's Place."
  • In the film Boyz n the Hood, Doughboy makes fun of Dooky by calling him Elroy Jetson after he talks about the existence of God and how he would have to have made the sun, moon, and stars.
  • Roxie calls Miles Elroy Jetson in the Sabrina the Teenage Witch episode "Beach Blanket Bizarro."
  • In The Fairly OddParents TV movie Channel Chasers (part 1), Timmy zaps himself into the world of The Futurellis, in which Timmy is dressed like Elroy and drives a flying car.
  • In the George Lopez episode "Leave It to Lopez," George dreams that his family is now the Jetsons living in Orbit City. His son, Max, is naturally Elroy.
  • In the Gilmore Girls episode "Introducing Lorelei Planetarium," Lorelei quipped that Christopher's new flat screen TV is something out of The Jetsons, even adding, "Meet George Jetson, his boy Elroy," from the theme song. She also gets confused by thinking Elroy might be called Leroy, but Christopher says she was correct the first time.
  • In the DTV movie Futurama: Bender's Game (cut as part 2 when aired as part of the TV series), Rosie has been sent to the HAL Institute for Criminally Insane Robots for killing Astro and possibly Elroy for being dirty, only referring to the latter by name.
  • In "Episode 18" (series 7) of the UK BBC One game show Pointless, the first round of questions that fell into the "Cartoon" category is Hanna-Barbera cartoon characters, with host Alexander Armstrong showing an image of several of them together. The contestants have to be able to pick out all the obscure characters that 100 anonymous public people had been able to guess. Neil picked Elroy, which three of the anonymous public had been able to guess correctly, adding to their 100 points, which is actually bad because the lowest points win, and points aren't taken down for winning, because his partner, Gary, had picked Judy despite not being in the photo, costing them the 100 points they start with. Yes, it's confusing.
  • In the Teen Titans Go! episode "Robin Backwards," Boy Beast, a Bizarro World counterpart to Beast Boy, is a dog who can transform into any boy in the world, including the Bizarro version of Elroy.
  • In the Wander Over Yonder episode "The Cartoon," Dominator watches The Mystery Kids Mysteries, which includes a green dog called Soosy Du, who has somewhat of a resemblance to Soos Rodriguez from Gravity Falls, while wearing a hat and collars similar to Elroy. Mavis, one of the kids who own Soosy, also dresses like Elroy's sister, Judy.
  • For the 2021 Halloween special of Live with Kelly and Ryan, Art Moore, one of the show's executives, was dressed as Elroy.
