Episode Summary


While out on an errand, George and Astro witness an armored car robbery. But it was actually a scene that was being filmed as part of a movie. Because they were caught on the video, the movie director sends his assistant Nimbly, so they can sign a release form. However, George and Astro fear the worst, believing criminals are after them. Initially, they hide out at a cabin away from town, but with no food, they return home and go into a panic, thinking a crook is after the family. But once the misunderstanding is cleared up, George gets his opportunity to be on TV.

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Jane: (walking to the closet where George and Astro are hiding) George Jetson, you come out of there! I'm not used to talking to my husband through a closet door.
        George: You better get used to it. This is going to be my home within a home.
        Jane: That's ridiculous!

      • (George and Astro are sitting on relaxing chairs watching 2 television sets with sunglasses on due to the sunlamps over them)
        George: Boy, this is really roughing it. Just a couple of sunlamps and only 2 TVs. We're really cut off from civilization way out here.
        Astro: Reah. Rut off
        George: At least those hoods won't find us up here. Well, we'll just have to suffer it out for a few months.

      • P.J.: (looking at George and Astro on the movie screen) Who are those two strange guys in the picture?
        Nimbly: Just a guy and his dog, P.J. We got them on film accidentally.

      • Title pun: TV or Not TV
        The episode title is a spoof of the famous William Shakespeare quote 'To be or not to be, that is the question.'
