Saw this at the Museum of Television & Radio
16 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I never saw this show in its original run on ABC as there were few VCR's back them (better known as Betamex). It brought such a joy to my face to see Ralph, Alice, Norton and Trixie together again. The episode centers around Ralph and another one of his hair-brained schemes. This time he takes his Mother-in-Laws check, (played wonderfully by Eileen Heckhart), Ed's bonus check and withdraws all the money out of his joint account with Alice to buy lottery tickets in the hopes to win a million dollars. I can't tell you what happens afterwards because my time ran out watching this episode at the Museum of Television and Radio. But I would watch it again, completely this time. The set was exactly the same (in color) and of course, Jackie Gleason and the others aged quite a bit. Gleason lost weight, Carney gained. I don't know why they couldn't get Joyce Randolph to revive her role as Trixie. I have nothing against Jane Kean but she was in the later "Honeymooners" sketches with Shiela MacCrae (1966-1970)so it seemed like she didn't fit in. Interestingly enough, both Joyce Randolph and Jane Kean are still with us today. It would be nice if we could see them interviewed in some sort of a DVD release, which wouldn't be a bad idea. I doubt this or any of the the other "Honeymooners" reunions made in the late '70s were ever seen since their original broadcasts.
