Storyline

Ralph and Norton discover a mysterious food product that Ralph thinks Alice has made that they decide to dub Krammar's Delicious Mystery Appetizer. Ralph calls it Krammar's because he is considering naming the product not only after himself, but also after his boss at the bus depot, J.J. Marshall. The next day, Ralph takes the mystery snack to Mr. Marshall to get him to taste it. But when he does, the mystery is solved - the snack he had just tried is dog food! Naturally, Ralph is not at all happy. Written by Anonymous

Love Me, Love My Puppy
9 August 2016 | by See all my reviews

Typical Honeymooner laughs until the last few minutes that do turn poignant. Seems Alice has adopted an adorable puppy from the pound. She's hoping Ralph will relent on pets in their small apartment once he sees the lovable little face. Trouble is sneaky food sampler Norton mistakes the dog food for a delicious appetizer. And once Ralph tastes it, he gets typical big ideas like getting his boss to financially back a sales campaign once he too tastes the food. Naturally, laughs abound when the big-shot bus executives stand around tasting what's really dog food.

Except for the note of unexpected poignancy, it's a typical Honeymooner laugh fest with Ralph strutting his big plans and Norton meekly going along. Of course, actors Gleason and Carney, as usual, really exaggerate their respective characters for comedic effect. But then, so much of comedy, I think, is premised on exaggeration.
