Editorial Reviews

Ralph Kramden is a New York bus driver who dreams of a better life. With his eccentric good friend, Ed Norton the sewer worker, he constantly tries crackpot schemes to strike it rich. All the while, his exasperated wife, Alice, is always there to bring him down to earth or to pick him up if he beats her to it. For as much as they fight, even dunderhead Ralph knows that she is the greatest and vice versa.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still GREAT after all these years... November 9, 2003
Format:DVD
I'm sure that anyone spending the time reading reviews of this Honeymooners Box Set, doesn't need any reassurance as to the show itself. What more needs to be said about Ralph and the gang? The great 39 episodes never fail to deliver. The Honeymooners remain the prime example of television comedy at it's zenith. The show, while serving as a wonderful time capsule of it's era, is astoundingly fresh, having aged beautifully. *********About the Box Set************As I read other reviews here I realize that there is some confusion regarding this set. It almost makes me believe that there is another box set floating around. Anyway, the one I am referring to was just released November 2003...(not sure why even Amazon has it listed as 2000). I see that others are complaining that the shows are not chronologically placed on the discs, but grouped thematically. While that would be a little annoying to me as well, such is NOT the case with the set I purchased...all are in the order that they were originally aired with the airdates given. Another complaint that I've seen posted is in regards to the quality of the transfers themselves. Once again, I can't imagine that these reviewers are seeing the same Box Set as I am. I am a rather picky viewer and try to stay informed...I've never seen the show look or sound better. Glorious Black and White. (I will attest to the fact that the episode "TV or Not TV" does not look or sound as good as the rest, probably inherant in the source material...not a biggie though). As far as extras...not much here. The Anniversary special included here is a shortened version and isn't all that informative or even necessary for that matter. Yes, it would have been nice to have more extras...interviews, commentary, bio's, etc... Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent DVD package February 26, 2005
Format:DVD
The DVD package I received from Amazon was absolutely perfect! As others have noted, the 5 DVDs are individually packaged with a photo and a brief plot outline for each episode. The photo is of an actual scene from the specific episode and always one which is central to the plot. In addition, each episode is titled ("The Sleepwalker", "The Golfer", etc.)

Personally, I liked the fact that, after you have viewed an episode, the DVD brings you back to the Menu rather than beginning a new episode automatically. I think that I would have a tendency to just continue watching episode after episode and probably overdose.

My DVD package has the 39 episodes in chronological order(from 1-39) with episodes 1-8 on DVD #1, 9-16 on DVD #2, etc. The 5th DVD has episodes 33-39 and also has Special Features. The Special Features(which I have not viewed yet) consists of two items: 1) The Honeymooners Anniversary Special, and 2) Original series opening and closings not seen since 1956. As I have stated, I have not seen the Special Features yet, so I do not know what #2 is but just in case you're wondering: each one of the 39 episodes on this DVD set DOES begin with the little musical intro and the announcer's voice that fans are so used to hearing before the start of the show.

In all honesty, I don't think I would change anything at all about this DVD set. For me, it is perfect! As I have said to my wife and 6 yr. old daughter, I don't think I would want Ralph Kramden as a neighbor what with all the yelling he does, but it sure does amuse me watching it on a TV show! All the best to you and I hope this review has helped in some way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Baby, you're the greatest. August 27, 2003
Format:DVD
Having been born 24 years after the initial showing of the Honeymooners, I might not be the target audience that came to mind when this DVD collection was assembled. Funny is funny, however, and these "Classic 39" episodes of the Honeymooners are the funniest half hours ever shown on television and the greatest situation comedy of all time.
You just don't see shows like this now. Nothing is this well acted or this well written. And nothing is just this funny. This is a husband and wife struggling to get by and they look like it, too. This "Friends" where the cast lives like millionaires. This isn't "Fraiser" where they work in some high-profile industry. Ralph drives a bus and Norton works in the sewer (an "underground engineer.") The Kramdens and Norton are real people and real neighbors.
What made the show work so well was the actors. Jackie Gleason owns the material. He doesn't even have to say a word to provide a hilarious moment. Just watch him stew, his face contort while listening to his mother-in-law just prior to his famous blabbermouth rant.
Audrey Meadows is perfect. When Gleason sets 'em up, Meadows' Alice knocks 'em down like no one else. Ralph: "The bills will get bigger & bigger, and I'll get less to eat. Then you know what I'll look like?" Alice: "Yeah, a human being." Episode after episode, she deadpans cut down and cut down with deadly accuracy.
Art Carney's Norton should have his own statue in Washington DC. A terrific actor playing the part perfectly. Like Meadows, Carney has an uncanny chemistry with Gleason. You really can feel the history between the two characters, as if they've been best friends for long enough to be close friends and long enough to get on each others nerves all the time.
