Editorial Reviews

The Honeymooners Return To Celebrate Christmas For The Last Time - In Color! In 1978, Jackie Gleason, Audrey Meadows, Art Carney and Jane Kean reunited for the fourth of four hour-long specials representing the final performances of their classic Honeymooners characters. As Christmas approaches, Ralph Kramden's latest get-rich scheme risks his and Alice's life savings -- and trusting pal Ed Norton's holiday bonus -- on the lottery. The gamble also places Alice's mother's Social Security check in jeopardy.

There were actually 2 different Christmas themed Honeymooners Reunion shows, each appeared in the late '70's. Why in the world couldn't both of the Christmas Reunion specials be included on this one DVD?? Don't tell me we have to wait till next year to pay another $15 to get the remaining Christmas Honeymooner Reunion special? I smell the scent of greed in the air. Come on 2 48 minute Christmas specials on one DVD release can't be asking too much.

No, it's not as good as the "Classic 39," but a nice nostalgic look at Christmas by the classic stars. Not LOL funny, but is good for a chuckle. Historically important because it was the last time the cast would get together for a Honeymooners special.

This December/77 first-aired Honeymooners Christmas special comes to us courtesy of MPI video and is,like the other two specials already released,a fantastic addition to your Jackie Gleason collection.This is the second of three only specials released in the 70s and the last ones done ever;and with Audrey Meadows reprising her role as Alice to boot.This is the only one also to come from Atlantic City.
If there weren't script references or accompanying holiday decor,this story could have served as a Honeymooners story at any time of the year.Ralph this time hits his good pal Norton up for his paycheck,takes his own paycheck and even takes his father in laws pension cheque for yet another get rich quick scheme.The scheme?....lottery tickets.Ralph has by chance come upon the idea his lucky number is four(you have to hear the hilarious explanation for this!)and he figures that if he buys enough lottery tickets all with four in them,he HAS to win!Well the sketch goes through to near end and the draw comes up.And of course Ralph doesn't win the million dollar prize and or any....so he thinks.On the way back upstairs with the radio Trixie leaves it on and hears Ralph DID win....$1500.00!She rushes back down with the news and he wants to take everyone out for Chinese food until Alice of course sets him straight.He has taken undue liberties with his friends and relatives monies,Alice points out,and between the monies he WILL pay back and what he won,he has made a grand total of....... 12 cents!It ends with the classic apologetic Ralph,disgusted Alice and a "Baby,you're the greatest" ending.Classic Honeymooners stuff and above all FUNNY.
This show had a different mother in law in academy award winning actress Eileen Heckert.

There isn't much Christmas to this Christmas special, and it isn't all that special either. Special only, I suppose, in being the last Gleason Honeymooners show. There's a reference to Christmas at the start, but the pretense of Ralph amassing money for one of his schemes could come from anything and the holiday is not integral to the scheme or 99% of the show at all.

As others have posted, it then becomes double-frustrating when you know there was a REAL Christmas-themed Honeymooners Reunion show the year before. And, of the four 1976-1977 reunion shows, it is the only one not released, and could have clearly been included with this one.

I own all 3 of the specials and love them all. This is my favorite because of the excellent get rich quick, lottery ticket story line. Timing between the characters is superb. A little energy is lost from the physical comedy but it is still excellent. I grew up watching All In The Family and have wondered what Gleason could have done with the role. The risk would have been considerable in that he was loved by almost everyone and that role was very controversal. I think the love of his fans was very important to him. The cast shows they can still bring down the house down with laughter in these specials and leave you wanting more!

I loved this special, first aired on December 10, 1978. Good writing, the jokes are funny. No technical glitches and the stage lighting was superb. It looked brand new! Audrey Meadows is in it as Alice, along with the fabulous Eileen Heckart as Alice's crabby mother. Jane Kean as Trixie and of course Art Carney. Each segment has endearing moments. I'm glad it's not fixated on Christmas. It's them reacting to another of Ralph's crazy get-rich quick schemes. Loved the cat radio idea. And glad to see Audrey Meadows as Alice again -- she was really the best actress to play Alice. If you are a fan of the Honeymooners you really should get this one for your collection to watch at Christmastime each year to pay tribute to the group. They were all so good. They're all gone now, with Jane Kean recently passing away, sadly. I watched it twice!

I sat in the audience and saw this episode performed live ion stage in AC.
It is great to be able to watch it again and share it with others.
This was the last special to re-unite the cast and it was great to be able to see them perform in person. They were part of the start of television and were real pros, doing the show live in the 50's without re-takes. This special shows they still are the pros like in the 50's. A true classic and a recommended part of your Honeymooners collection.
