Gee Bee (ジービー) is an arcade game developed by Namco released in 1978. It was Namco's first arcade game to be developed internally, and was designed by Touru Iwatani, the creator of Pac-Man.

Gee Bee is very similar to Atari's Breakout, though has two paddles, pinball-like bumpers, and blocks that need to be hit on the side of the playfield. The game runs in black & white; a color overlay placed over the screen is used to fake color. MAME simulates this overlay.

Several versions of Gee Bee exist. The game was brought to North America by Gremlin Industries, and this version of the game was brought to Europe (or France at least) by Sega. Another European release of Gee Bee distributed by Fratelli Bertolino also exists.

The Gremlin version replaces the "N-A-M-C-O" letters on the bumpers with the company's distinctive "G" logo.
