by gattonero975 | created - 15 Mar 2015 | updated - 29 Mar 2015 | Public

Since it's premiere on October 1, 1955, "The Honeymooners" has established itself as a conerstone of America television. Amazing...considering that only 39 full-length classic episodes were filmed. The immortal Jackie Gleason with beloved sidekicks Art Carney, Audrey Meadows, and Joyce Randolph, who starred as 'Ralph, Ed, Alice and Trixie', set the tone for countless situation comedies through the years. But none have quite captured the sheer magic of the "Kramdens" and the "Nortons" struggling to carve out their place of the American Dream in Brooklyn. These timeless 39 episodes is an everlasting monument to one of the funniest and most enduring TV shows of all time!
