While I’m not old enough to remember watching the TV show, I definitely remember many of the catch phrases I heard on the new Jackie Gleason Show DVD! The hilarious comedy sketches left their mark on American culture.
The Jackie Gleason Show: In Color is a special edition DVD from Time Life and it is fun for seniors and younger folks. It actually surprised me how much of it was familiar, since I didn’t watch the show when it first aired between 1966 and 1970.
The DVD contains four never before released episodes and three bonus Honeymooners sketches. I recognized many of the guest starts including Florence Henderson, Frankie Avalon, George Carlin, Nipsey Russell and Milton Berle.
How sweet it is!
