Review:

Unseen since their original broadcast in 1953 and 1955, these episodes from Jackie Gleason's own collection have all the ingredients that made The Honeymooners such a hit.

In "Songs and Witty Sayings" Ralph and Ed have their eyes on the $200 prize at a talent show. Unfortunately their mind-reading act can't hold a candle to Alice and Trixie's hula dance. "Norton Moves In" finds Ed and Trixie sleeping over at the Kramdens'. When the boys have to sleep on a cot in the kitchen, Ralph's short fuse starts to burn. The disc closes with "Income Tax," in which Ralph has to decide between the IRS and a new bowling ball.

The Honeymooners might be dated, but the razor-sharp script and perfect timing still feel fresh. The endless battle between Ralph and Alice crackles with energy, and Art Carney's laconic Ed Norton remains one of TV's greatest characters. This classic show can still give many modern sitcoms a run for their money. --Simon Leake
