Widower Sheriff Andy and his son Opie live with Andy's Aunt Bee in Mayberry NC. With virtually no crimes to solve, most of Andy's time is spent philosophizing and calming down his cousin Deputy Barney.
Widower Steve Douglas raises three sons with the help of his father-in-law, and is later aided by the boys' great-uncle. An adopted son, a stepdaughter, wives, and another generation of sons join the loving family in later seasons.
Ralph Kramden is a New York bus driver who dreams of a better life. With his eccentric good friend, Ed Norton the sewer worker, he constantly tries crackpot schemes to strike it rich. All the while, his exasperated wife, Alice, is always there to bring him down to earth or to pick him up if he beats her to it. For as much as they fight, even dunderhead Ralph knows that she is the greatest and vice versa. Written by

The line: "Pow! Right in the kisser!" was said in only 1 of the original 39 episodes, # 35. See more »
The background in the Kramden's window changes. Sometimes there are windows and fire escapes. Other times the fire escapes aren't there. This happens within episodes, not just from one episode to another. See more »
The Honeymooners was more than a good show, they were the reason TV was invented. All the other 50's (and some 60's shows) could not surpass the greatness of this sitcom about a couple (Ralph and Alice Kramden played by Jackie Gleason and Audrey Meadows) living in New York and they're weekley escapades, also including Ralph's friend Norton (Art Carney has never been better) and others. Though it only lasted 39 episodes (plus some lost ones), it is as legendary as the line "Bang zoom, straight to the moon". Entertaining and funny. A++
