* StanFreberg: Recorded one of the many parodies of the show -- "The Honeyearthers", in which the cast are all natives of the Moon.

Originally broadcast in 195556 on Creator/{{CBS}}, ''The Honeymooners'' chronicles the sometimes madcap, sometimes touching life of big-mouthed, soft-hearted bus driver Ralph Kramden and his sarcastic wife Alice, who live in a cold-water walk-up apartment in [[UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity Brooklyn]] (based on Jackie Gleason's childhood home at 328 Chauncy Street), and their friends and upstairs neighbors, sewer worker Ed Norton and his wife Trixie. Ralph and Norton are constantly getting embroiled in one crackpot get-rich-quick scheme after another.

Along with ''Series/ILoveLucy'', this is one of the ur-[[SitCom SitComs]] from the early days of television. While a one-season affair as a standalone series (it regularly got trounced in the ratings by ''The Perry Como Show'' during its initial network run), it remained a part of Gleason's reconstituted variety show until the end of its run, found a second life in ubiquitous syndicated reruns, and became a certified cultural icon, widely imitated (in particular by ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'') both in Hollywood and abroad. (There have been at least two ''Swedish'' versions, for instance.) In the late '70s Creator/{{ABC}} aired four hour-long ''Honeymooners'' [[ReunionShoe reunion specials]], including one for Christmas and one for Valentine's Day.

Ralph and Norton are constantly getting embroiled in one crackpot get-rich-quick scheme after another.

Born from a series of recurring sketches on the [[VarietyShow variety-format]] series ''The Jackie Gleason Show'' (many of which were preserved on kinescope and rather misleadingly touted as "lost episodes" decades later), ''The Honeymooners'' was eventually spun off into its own program, starring Jackie Gleason as big-mouthed, soft-hearted pseudo-bully Ralph, Art Carney as Norton, Audrey Meadows as Alice, and Joyce Randolph as Trixie. (Pert Kelton had originated the role of Alice in the ''Jackie Gleason Show'' sketches, but was [[UsefulNotes/TheHollywoodBlacklist blacklisted]] during the HUAC "Red Scare" and forced out of the cast. ''Literature/UncleJohnsBathroomReader'' claims that Kelton's official reason for being fired was that "her boobs were too big".)

* YouLookFamiliar: The very first ''Honeymooners'' sketch featured Art Carney as a passing policemen who gets a container of flour dropped on him from the Kramdens' window. Ed Norton would make his first appearance in the second sketch.
** In the crossover Christmas episode noted above, Alice never notices how everyone looks like Ralph suddenly.
