Product Description

One of television’s most influential and beloved comedy programs, THE HONEYMOONERS first appeared in 1951 as a series of skits on television‘s "Cavalcade of Stars" before comic great Jackie Gleason was given his own program a year later.

From 1952-1955 and 1956-1957, "The Jackie Gleason Show" featured dozens of classic HONEYMOONERS productions broadcast live nationwide on CBS-TV, airing only once. For decades, these early HONEYMOONERS telecasts were lost until Jackie Gleason began releasing them from his private film vault.

Now, in celebration of the 60th anniversary of the very first HONEYMOONERS skits, MPI Home Video and Jackie Gleason Enterprises present the most complete collection possible of these rare gems, many of which have not been seen anywhere in 50 years or available previously on DVD.

It‘s a treasure trove of the hilarious antics of hapless Brooklyn bus driver Ralph Kramden (Jackie Gleason), his long-suffering but loving wife Alice (Audrey Meadows), Ralph‘s neighbor and pal, sewer worker Ed Norton (Art Carney) and Norton‘s wife Trixie (Joyce Randolph). This is a must-have collection for any fan of classic television comedy which appeals to laugh-loving viewers of all ages.

Like the three disc Jack Benny-The Lost Episodes set,this 60th Anniversary set of the Honeymooners-The Lost Episodes is a misnomer.They were never lost at anytime.Jackie Gleason himself had the foresight to put his shows to Kinescope;a process whereby a a camera is pointed at a TV set and laid onto(in this case)16mm film.He did this from 1951 when he was on the Dumont network and then did the same from /52 to /57 on CBS.From here he stored them properly in air conditioned vaults until he released them in 1985.Like the Benny's these kines were remastered by the UCLA film and TV archive in California.The picture and sound quality vary from ep to ep of course due to the film and sound quality(or lack thereof).I think though it is the best we're going to ever get for these shows.I for one am just grateful The Great One had the means to preserve these shows.Personally,considering each entire show is preserved in toto,I would like to have see them in their complete form.However beggars can't be choosers.
This set contains 15 one sided discs all in snug plastic holders,with the entire set done in book-like form(i.e.one disc on one side of the "page",turn the "page" and there's another disc on the opposite side,then over to the next page,turn over for the next,etc.,etc.).It contains a nice informative booklet explaining what the history of the "lost"eps is about and a detailed listing of each ep c/w air dates.The 15th disc is chock full of extraordinary extras,including featurettes,rare clips relating to Carney/Norton and two radio performances of the Honeymooners.
Being live television anything could happen,and in these eps you will see and hear many a flub.

This didn't disappoint! Great to see all of these episodes that I had never seen before - the Honeymooners is great social criticism - at a time when the "American Dream" was being romanticized through television, the same medium was also used to show the less-than-peachy side of life in America.

All the disc plastic holders were cracked or broken. The discs had obviously been used. The poor shrink wrap was a dead give away. I have returned the item for a refund.

In the 1950's when television was live much was lost since the medium's longevity was unsure? The more renown and quality productions we have backups for but much was lost I believe? AS one of the top comics Jackie took the time to keep his live broadcasts probably in his own home and if he did not take such care and keep them in air conditioned vaults would they be lost? Their is much originality in jackie, especially his emphases and pronunciations and standup routine, and he loved the live audience an dhis routine and show often responded to the audience, "did they laugh" was it any good, funny? What better test is there then a test audience as compared to tape. There was much innovation in Jackie and many comics copied and were in awe of him old and new however he really in his taped honeymooners and other characters such as joe the bartender reginald van gleason the poor soul hark back to Chaplin in terms of his comedy being largely redolent of his youth. Chaplin's youth was in LOndon and Jackie's was in ?..the cubicle the apartment and much of the humour, it is almost serious-comic at times, and one episode about adopting a child the humor is squeezed out and he largely does drama the act is played straight? These episodes were probably not sybdicated since they are not uniform in length and midway a uniform set of episodes, much better quality and crisp and better put together professionally, more finished, were filmed just one year probably with a view toward syndication..DEsilu did the same with I love lucy. In the last year the skits are more variety show format with trips around the world and adventures in various world capitals(repeated in colour in the
1960's with audrey meadows bowing out to be replaced by sheila mcrae)..and Jackie was on CBS from about 1950 to 1970..
