Mr. Spacely is a round little guy with a major Napoleon thing going on. He is George‘s boss in the manager and supervisor-less company “Spacely Sprockets”. George’s ability to take a vacation, get a raise, be fired and rehired (in a matter of minutes) are all in Mr. Spacely’s hands.
Mr. Spacely is, however, accountable to his larger, more cultured spouse, Mrs. Spacely. He has a son, “Arthur”, who is Elroy‘s age, insuring the Spacelys and Jetsons mix socially. “Family man” status is what Mr. Spacely has in common with George and he designates George both their family responsibilities when possible.
