The Honeymooners

30 minutes

Jackie Gleason was dubbed 'The Great One,' and this classic sitcom shows why. These wonderfully timeless episodes (known as the 'Classic 39') are about the Kramdens and Nortons (introduced on the 'Cavalcade of Stars' variety show in 1950) and have flourished in syndication for more than 50 years. 'People like the show because we are them,' Gleason said. Art Carney had his own explanation: 'It was funny, period.' Carney won five Emmys in the role of Norton, while Gleason, inexplicably, never won.

This show is OLD even for me...I'm over fifty. Although there were only 39 episodes, you have to watch! This is the very first "Situation Comedy" and every future SC is based on this show. The grainy black & white prevents most young people from watching...what's up with that?
