Editorial Reviews

The Color Honeymooners (aka The Jackie Gleason Show), a top-rated comedy/variety program aired, "from the sun and fun capital of the world - Miami Beach!" on Saturday night from 1966-70 on CBS-TV. This long-running series marked the final weekly TV show for "The Great One." Reprising their famous characters from The Honeymooners, the cast was led by Jackie Gleason (Ralph Kramden) and Art Carney (Ed Norton). Newcomers Sheila MacRae and Jane Kean played long-suffering wives Alice and Trixie. Like popular variety series of the time, the show's format was a clever combination of new comedy sketches coupled with classic Honeymooners bits. Plenty of big name guest stars and a generous helping of singing and dancing rounded out the hour. Regulars included Gleason's glamorous Glea-Girls; the June Taylor Dancers; Sammy Spear and His Orchestra, and announcer, Johnny Olson. This set includes the last season of the Color Honeymooners. The first three seasons were 1950s sketches recreated in color as musicals, this year all the sketches are original! Additionally, each episode features wonderful celebrity guest stars such as Bing Crosby, Donald O'Connor, Paul Lynde, Joey Heatherton, Mike Douglas and many others.

Volume Four of "The Colour Honeymooners" is a dan-dan-dandy of a closing for the series.
All final twelve eps are here from Set.27/69 to Feb.28/70(regardless of the misprint on the inside sleeve that says Feb28/69!).There are two things that stand out immediately with these eps.First is The Great Ones' weight loss.He had been up around 290 lbs.,now he was down to about 220 lbs.,a laudable achievement.He would drop down a further 15 or more lbs.in the unsuing years.
The second thing that hits you is the plethora of guest stars appearing on these shows.Milton Berle,Joey Heatherton,Paul Lynde,Donald O'Connor,Mike Douglas,Bing Crosby and many well known character actors.Great to see and hear these stars once again.
As always this show was filmed live on a Friday night at the Miami Beach Colliseum for airing the next night.There were no laugh tracks as all reactions were genuine.And Gleason would rarely allow re-takes or stoppages in the filming.In fact for the auditorium audience it was a non stop show.In between scenes/costume changes,others acts would take the stage to entertain them,so it was truly constant fun in the sun for them.There was however a very unexpected stoppage in the filming.During the second to last ep"We're off to see the Wizard",I noticed that while singing one of their numbers that Gleason was stumbling a little more than usual with the lyrics;he was distracted for some reason.At the end of the show we are told the reason why by Gleason himself.It seems someone had come up on stage during filming and all proceedings came to a halt.The reason for the on stage intrusion is not told but Gleason you could tell was more than a little perturbed at it.It took alot to rattle the Great One,but this obviously had.

One would be led to think this 'last' installment of the 'Color Honeymooners' gave us the complete later Honeymooners on dvd. Unfortunately, as is often the case, the dvd companies are thinking for us. They know which episodes we wish to see and what we want left out! There are enough still-unreleased episodes to make another set and lets hope they do just that. For the record- here's what's missing: "Life Upon The Wicked Stage"-2/11/67... "6 Months To Live"-11/23/68..."Alice's Birthday"-12/7/68..."Lawsuit"-1/4/69..."Hot Tip"-2/8/69..."New Bowling Ball"3/22/69..."Norton Moves In"-4/5/69..."The New Manager"-4/19/69..."The Incredible World Of Ed Norton"-1/19/70.
The Honeymooner's were always a riot - The Color Honeymooner's are no exception ... and these episodes should not be left out. You are dealing with Gleason-Carney fanatics out here, PLEASE don't decide for us what we want to see. This honeymoon is not over, COMPLETE THE RIOT.

I'm surprised to not see more reviews and support for this, the Final installment of the now dubbed 'Color Honeymooners'. As another reviewer pointed out, I too am enjoying this Volume more than the others, not sure why.

Disc 1 opens up with 'the new Jackie Gleason'. Gleason is noted as saying he dropped some weight, 60 pounds, IMO that would be a conservative number, he looks fantastic. Not only does he look fantastic but there is more than just an added spring in his step, he is beaming most of the time. I doubt I've ever seen anyone smile so convincingly, he is truly at the top of his game.

The episodes once again feature many musical numbers, many even performed by the talent of the day and once gain I must say I have never enjoyed such performances until now. I have exactly FOUR dvd sets in my collection of the 'musical variety' all four of these. I'm just not partial to Broadway Theater-style music, despite that I must say the song lyrics are so clever you better NOT fast forward through them!!

I must also say the core cast by this point has the format down pat. Of coarse the Carney-Gleason One/Two punch has been cemented for many years, but I think even Sheila MacRae and Jane Kean as Alice and Trixie are finally feeling perfectly at home, sadly for them and us, this home would be broken shortly after. Still, while it lasted it was a fun ride and one I will taking again and again for many years to come.

The Honeymooners has been around since the early 1950s. But this is one of the few times we get to see Ralph and the gang not only in living color but singing and dancing as well in good old Miami Beach Florida. These color episodes were mostly lost Honeymooners stories from the black and white years redone, lengthened, sometimes placed in a different type of setting, and set to lots of music. In my opinion, these shows are not quite as "laugh yourself silly" as the original episodes but they are still much, much better than any sitcom I can ever find on television today. And the music is fantastic when you consider it was written quickly and weekly for television. Each episode has an average of 3-4 songs. That's a lot of songs when you combine these episodes! If you enjoy the Honeymooners, I'm sure you'll be picking this up. If you enjoy classic comedy, please pick it up. Finally, my hope for this series is that MPI will also release the Honeymooners specials done after Jackie Gleason's show was cancelled and also I would love to see the Christmas special (non Honeymooners) done during this time period where the poor soul enters storybook land. It was a wonderful special!
