[visiting in Ireland]
You know, I never knew that Jackie Gleason was Irish.
Oh yeah, I knew it. I read it in a TV magazine once. His whole family came over from Ireland during the potato famine.
In fact, I think they caused it!
That Gleason is a little chubby, isn't he?
Oh, he certainly is.
That Art Carney put on a few pounds too, you know.

GoodLife TV has been running reruns of the color episodes of The Honeymooners, which ran on The Jackie Gleason Show from 1966 to 1970. The production may seem overblown, but the shows themselves are fun to watch. They bring back great memories for me, as I saw them as a kid. Even when Gleason had the "variety," this show was still fun to watch. I especially remember seeing this show in 1968 in the basement of an Elks lodge in Owego, NY, and remember the pretty girls who would introduce the shows! Yes, it may be "comfort food," but it sure is fun. And it is a show CBS could be very proud of!!
