"G.I. Jetson" is the nineteenth episode of The Jetsons season one. It aired on February 3, 1963 on ABC. It was written by Barry E. Blitzer, and produced and directed by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera, the creators of the series and the founders of Hanna-Barbera Productions.
George is enrolled in the space guard reserves, where his superiors are his boss, Spacely, and the conniving Uniblab.
In order of appearance:
- Venus (mentioned)
- Camp Nebula
- Flying car
When The Jetsons originally aired, no title cards were present. They were only added when the series was revived in 1985, and the original episodes were given title cards for consistency when they were all packaged together for The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera. Notably, they all include Orbitty, who wasn't in the original series.
The music was composed and conducted by Hoyt Curtin.

Behind the scenes
- George dealt with Uniblab in the episode, "Uniblab." Both episodes also have Henry Orbit, who helps George tamper with Uniblab to get even; this time he seems to have blown up (off-screen).
- Uniblab, however, returns in season two, still getting George to gamble at Spacely Space Sprockets, but in a smaller capacity and a lot more tamer.
