Anyone here a fan of tv classic the "Honeymooners?"


Shortline Bus

Recommended Posts

I know none of us on the boards was around in the mid-1950's when this all time fan favorite debuted as a tv show. However worth asking since it's still popular almost 60 years later. Anyone here a Honeymooners fan? Or maybe seen the 2005 film remake starring Cedric the Entertainer?

And for (MTA) bus drivers does Ralph Kramden potray accurately a NYC Bus driver in the 1950's? Lets zoom to the moon.:)

 

1)Opening theme

pow right in the kisser. I see the show sometimes. I have never seen the remake movie.

 

I have seen the Cedric the Entertainer's remake and not good IMO. There was a reason it was a flop at the box office.

 

Anyhow NYCtrainfan if you can and could afford it try to buy the DVD collection. It's so funny at times, you cry laughing.

 

Or just wait until the Holiday season as Ch.11 in NYC usually has a Honeymooners marathon i think either on Thanksgiving or New Years Day.

from what you and B35 said ( and from personal experience of seeing other movie remakes ) remakes don't seem to do very well at the box office.I will look into the DVD collection. I'm also interested in getting the munsters DVD collection as well.

THe original was fantastic. Just about every classic sitcom plotline originated with that show. Considering that 85-90% of all the scenes were in that little dining room area in their brooklyn apartment, they did pretty amazing things with that show.

I love the show. My dad bought lots of old sitcoms like Gomer Pyle U.S.M.C., and the Odd Couple so that we'd have an alternative to current TV.

 

2005 movie? I don't know what you guys are talking about. There was never a crude, race-lifted remake of the show starring Cedric the Entertainer. Never.

 

...despite the general panning of the movie, Roger Ebert actually gave it a positive review.

Sadly many kids especially those under age 18, have never heard of the Honeymooners. A year or two back, I mention that classic show and out of class of 30 students only 1-2 had heard of it. :eek:

 

it is sad. I asked some of my friends the other day if they have heard of the T.V shows the three stooges or the rifleman or music bands the beatles or chicago and they told me no. I'm often called an old man trapped in a young man's body lol. I've always liked (and always will) the "older" generation stuff like music and T.V

What azaming is that in 1970, the year the Beatles broke up, Paul, John, Ringo and George were arguably the 4 most famous men on the planet. Even as popular as say the Pope at the time or then US President Nixon.

Remember these:

 

[The golf lesson from Norton] "First, you address the ball… hello, ball."

 

Poor Alice..."One of these days Alice, Bang Zoom! To The Moon Alice! To The Moon!"

 

 

[Norton to Ralph who has been laid off] Know just how you feel because I went through the same thing two or three years ago when they laid me off from the sewer. I felt just like a fish out of water.

 

[Norton to Ralph] Look, just don't get upset. You're gettin' all upset now. Let's calm down and look nice when we get down there. There's no sense in getting upset. Now listen, the boys in the sewer, there, when we get upset we got a little motto... a little saying that gives us comfort in time of need. Maybe I can pass it on to you. May I favor you with this little ode? "When the tides of life turn against you, and the current upsets your boat. Don't waste those tears on what might have been, just lay on your back and float."

 

By the way, Mr. Gleason was a very good serious actor. Check him out in the "Hustler" with Paul Newman. Great flick.

One of us was. IIRC it was a sketch on Gleason's hour long show before it became a series.
