Jimmy was supposedly a child that George and Louise has sponsored and sent money to for years. However, in their first visit with Jimmy, they realize he was an adult: simply put, Jimmy is a con-man! The character Jimmy appeared in five episodes from 1983-1984. Jimmy supposedly was a member of the historically black fraternity Alpha Phi Alpha.
In the three-part episode titled "Mission:Impossible", Jimmy is once again enlisted by George. Jimmy and his cousin, played by Greg Morris of Mission:Impossible TV series fame, try to recover $10,000 lost by Tom Willis to some con-men who were posing as investors, and who were also ex-Navy accquaintances of George in a revenge/double-cross con. The part of Jimmy is played by comedian/actor and Saturday Night Live alumnus Garrett Morris.
