A Short Story was the 113th overall episode of The Jeffersons TV series, also the second episode of Season 6. Directed by Bob Lally and written by Jay Moriarty and Mike Milligan, the episode made its premiere on CBS-TV on September 30, 1979.


George is ecstatic when he learns he's been named "Small Businessman of the Year." However, Louise quickly learns that the basis of the award is purely physical. The award is to honor short businessmen.


George is in ego heaven; he's been chosen as "The Midtown Small Businessman of the Year" -- but Louise soon discovers the group's shortcomings, as he also discovers later when he attends the event with her, that the award is not to honor those who own small businesses, but instead one which roastfully honors businessmen who are short in stature!
