|This article is about the character from I Am Alexander Graham Bell. You may be looking for George Washington or George Washington Carver.|
He is mentioned to have "lost his hearing before he could learn very many words".
He is likely based on George Sanders (possibly nicknamed Georgie), a student of Bell's in real life who was deaf from birth.
This is a bit of a mismatch since being born deaf would mean you lost hearing before learning ANY words, and "very many" implies George would've learned SOME words before losing his hearing.
During Alexander Graham Bell's episode, he only managed to say the word "Apple" by pointing to the pronunciation of the word saying it and then saying the word entirely.
He is voiced by Oliver Federowich.
Since he was five by October '72, by July '86 when six-year-old Helen was introduced to Bell for the first time, he would've been 18-19 years old.

The boy was born totally deaf and had never spoken a word in his life."
