Once the Queens, New York neighbor of Archie and Edith Bunker, George Jefferson and his family moved on up to a deluxe apartment in Manhattan. Jefferson, who owns several dry-cleaning stores, is a quick-thinking schemer whose plans usually end in hilarious failure. George and his wife Louise have one son named Lionel.
