Storyline

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 Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

Classic Comedy At Its Best!!
15 April 1999 | by (Markham,Ontario) – See all my reviews

The Honeymooners is a classic comedy from the 1950s. There were only 39 original episodes made. But all 39 were classic gems. Jackie Gleason was hilarious as Ralph Kramden,the hard working, always complaining bus driver & husband of Alice (Audrey Meadows). They both worked very well together. The other couple in the show was Ed Norton (Art Carney) & Trixie Norton(Joyce Randolph). Art Carney was brilliant in this TV show, his personality & mannerisms are some of the funniest ever. A great actor. I don,t have one favorite episode that I can say is the best, they are all great. This is one of the best comedy shows ever made. The laser disc box sets of all 39 episodes are 2 of my best ones in my whole collection. A Must Have!!!
