George's Family Tree was the second episode of The Jeffersons TV series, also the second episode of Season 1. Directed by Jack Shea and co-written by Perry Grant and Dick Bensfield, it made its premiere on CBS-TV on January 25, 1975.
When George boasts he's "King of the Mountain," Louise teaches him a lesson by uncovering a few skeletons in the closet of his ancestors' family tree.
Talk of ancestry doesn't interest George, who believes the past should remain in the past - until he learns that he was descended from African royalty.
