  The Jackie Gleason Show: In Color

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 5/10/18

This show aired when I was a child, so I didn't watch it. Of course, I've seen many episodes of "The Honeymooners" in re-runs. This small set contains 3 DVDs with 12 episodes. They are cut, and you won't find a lot of music here, just comedy. If you're looking for the June Taylor Dancers, you won't find them. However, you will find some great comedy, including 7 Previously Unreleased Honeymooner Sketches.

If you're a younger person and want to know why Jackie Gleason was such a hit, this gives you a small touch of his comedy. For the rest of us, it's a nice walk down memory lane. There are many great guest-stars that appear on the shows. Any classic TV or comedy fan should enjoy this set.

PROGRAM SYNOPSIS
 
"How swee-eet it is!" Unseen for more than 50 years, at long last, The Jackie Gleason Show is back!
 
From 1966-1970, Gleason, everyone's favorite working-class hero, entertained enthralled audiences across the country with his eponymous TV Variety Show featuring hilarious sketches, celebrity guest stars and much more. Taped in beautiful Miami Beach, The Jackie Gleason Show delivered an unforgettable gallery of characters Gleason himself created and fine-tuned, including his most indelible and legendary creation -- Ralph Kramden -- as he and Art Carney revived their Honeymooners roles (with Sheila MacRae and Jane Kean added as the new Alice and Trixie), all presented in glorious color for the first time.
 
Across three beautifully-remastered collector's discs, THE JACKIE GLEASON SHOW IN COLOR: DELUXE EDITION contains 12 never-before-released episodes -- including 7 unreleased Honeymooners sketches that haven't been seen since they first aired, including Six Months To Live, Alice's Birthday, Lawsuit, Hot Tip, The New Bowling Ball, Norton Moves In, and The New Manager.  Tune in to see Jackie at his best, on stage with all his famous friends - Jack Benny, George Burns, Milton Berle, Tony Bennett, Red Buttons, Phil Silvers, Florence Henderson, Frankie Avalon, Nipsey Russell, Edie Adams, Sid Caesar, Alan King, Robert Goulet, Mickey Rooney, Frank Sinatra Jr., Victor Borge -- and others. 
 
"The Jackie Gleason Show" delivered an hour of non-stop entertainment every week, and now, home audiences can let Jackie entertain them any time! So cue the travelin' music and heed the big man's message before he glides offstage: "And awaaay we go!"
