Great Parody Of 'The Honeymooners'
1 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This "Hooneymooners" takeoff on the famous television program was a hoot!

Instead of "Ralph Kramden," we have "Ralph Crumden." Instead of "Ed Norton," we have "Ned Martin." At least "Alice" is still "Alice."

The other differences are big ones: instead of humans, they're mice, but at least they still live in New York (on 42nd Street if the opening music number means anything.)

Of the three imitations, I thought June Foray was great as "Alice," sounding pretty close to the human counterpart (Audrey Meadows) and Daws Butler cracked me up as Norton. He also did Gleason's role as Ralph but not as effectively.

Alice gets the best lines in this simple tale of the mice trying to figure out how to get by a big cat so they can get to the food. She uses lines like, "I've seen better heads on a glass of beer," when describing the two males. Their big plan is a "Trojan dog" to trick the cat but the main idea of the cartoon appears to be simply having fun with the TV program, playfully mocking the main characters and all the phrases they used to use in almost every show including the "Alice, you're the greatest!" endings.

Watching this cartoon has convinced me to buy the real "Honeymooners" DVD from that memorable one season of 1955.
