The Honeymooners

In the late 1940s, Jackie Gleason hosted a variety show, "The Cavalcade of Stars", on the DuMont Television Network. There he created skits of "The Honeymooners" with another DuMont performer, Art Carney. The skits became so popular, CBS offered Gleason an opportunity to produce and star in the series, "The Honeymooners" in 1955 (39 episodes). Some of the so-called "lost episodes" were 15 minute skits originally broadcast on DuMont. Gleason retained the rights to the reruns which became extremely popular with an almost cult-like following. The Honeymooners starred Jackie Gleason, Art Carney, Audrey Meadows, and Joyce Randolph.
