The Great One Is Still Great
6 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm so glad that the Honeymooners shows from the 1960s and 1970s are now available. The nine episodes called "The Trip to Europe" have been put on DVD and I hope that the rest of the 44 hour shows are also slated to be released on DVD. The Goodlife Network has been showing these Honeymooners, but not everyone has access to this network.

There are those that say, "If it's not Audrey Meadows, it's not the real 'Honeymooners'." Sure, Sheila MacRae plays a softer Alice, but she is far from inappropriate. In fact, Jane Kean enhances the role of Trixie. This is not to take away from Joyce Randolph. Sure, you get the June Taylor Dancers and Gleason and company break into song whenever they wish. I find this to be completely charming. I know. These traditional musical comedy numbers make the shows dated. I don't care. I love these numbers. There are also some dated topical jokes from the 1960s. So what! Gleason and Carney seem to have extra energy from being back together again and performing before a live audience. The famous Gleason mistakes are there, and these make the shows even better.

Did you know that there are a few Honeymooners sketches from the early 1960s with Sue Ann Langdon as Alice and Patricia Wilson as Trixie? Goodtimes put one of these shows on VHS. Did you know that there are also sketches from the late 60s, where the Honeymooners are part of a Gleason variety show? What about putting all of these on DVD. I would also like to see the Gleason American Scene Magazine shows on DVD.
