The real question for Honeymooners fans is: do the color episodes hold up when compared to the originals? And the answer is, in a way, no: Gleason and Carney are older and a bit slower in regard to timing and performance, and MacRae and Kean, while pleasant, can't touch Audrey Meadows and Joyce Randolph as Alice and Trixie. And the musical and production numbers, while eye-catching, weigh down the humor at the core of the sketches. But there's still plenty of chemistry between Gleason and Carney in their best-loved roles, and if you're a die-hard Honeymooners/Gleason fan, you'll probably want to add these episodes to your collection. The four-disc set includes all nine unedited episodes from the story arc, as well as the featurette "The Great Gleason Express," which chronicles the star's process of moving his show from New York to Miami Beach ("the sun and fun capital of the world," lest you've forgotten) via a lavish train, with plenty of stops along the way to cater to his fans. The featurette is rounded out by an interview with Gleason's widow, Marilyn Taylor Gleason. --Paul Gaita
They are all excellent and as funny as the old 50's show.
The black-and-white "Honeymooners" seems more "authentic," if you will -- you really get the sense that this is a couple barely making ends meet.
The blue and white opening image of "the sun and fun capitol of the world - Miami Beach" was thrilling!
In my opinion the later color honeymooner’s variety show from the late 60 is not as great as the classic from the 50s. Little different cast and is more like a musical. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Donald Jones
Jackie Gleason and Art Carney were outstanding comic geniuses--together. The collection, r/t round-the-world trip, was hilarious--to me. Read morePublished 5 months ago by gashiyaguru
I bought this collection, along with collections two and three. I remember watching these as a little boy. Each show is full of great comedy, great music, and great dancing. Read morePublished on December 3, 2011 by Epistem Quest
This is a great set. The 60's color Honeymooners have a different Alice and Trixie, but it will not take you long to be won over. Read morePublished on August 26, 2011 by Edward J. Vasicek
I was born about the time the Original 39 were filmed, so I never saw them when they were originally broadcast. I only saw them in syndication, they were funny, in a sitcom way. Read morePublished on August 12, 2011 by Waialae Will
For starters, I love The Honeymooners. I grew up on the "Classic 39" and was delighted to discover the lost episodes later on. Read morePublished on May 6, 2011 by Ricardo C.
My apologies in advance since I do not own any of these DVD sets, but I've been vainly attempting to discern what the actual content of this product is and I'm literally horrified... Read morePublished on April 12, 2010 by Gregory J. Winters
Anyone into the Honeymooners might like "Everybody Loves Raymond" 's Brad Garrett (the big cop) playing Jackie Gleason in a movie. The movie's called "Gleason," and it wasn't bad. Read morePublished on July 4, 2008 by M. M
