George's Legacy was the 66th overall episode of The Jeffersons TV series, also the fifth episode of Season 4. Directed by Jack Shea and written by Don Siegel, the episode made its premiere on CBS-TV on October 15, 1977.
George insists on being immortalized and comes up with ways on how to go about doing it. He finally decides on having a bust made of himself. However, his family and friends find the bust to be a hilarious joke.
Many greats in history have their legacies preserved and are known to the public throughout the years. George wants to have his legacy known for generations to come as well. Therefore, he pays a sculptor to carve a bust of his likeness, with a style similar to that of a Greek God. George invites his family and neighbors over to his apartment for the unveiling of the statue; however, once they see it, they laugh it off.
