* ItWillNeverCatchOn: One of Ralph's {{Zany Scheme}}s involves selling frozen pizza.
** A running gag in the musical adaptation, where Norton comes up with the idea for VCRs (and DVRs), cell phones and drive-thru restaurants. Ralph declares each idea as the worst he's ever heard.

* MinskyPickup: In the episode called [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_$99,000_Answer "The $99,000 Answer"]] (after the fictional TV show Ralph is going on), when Ralph is cramming for an appearance on a game show where he has to identify songs, Norton is helping him by playing songs on the piano. To Ralph's consternation, EACH song is preceded by Norton "warming up" which consists of the first few notes of "Way Down Upon the Swanee River" followed by "dadum, dadum dum dum!" ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pnpaMPmivPE The bit with the Minsky Pickup is here starting at 6:40]]) It's the only ''Honeymooners'' episode to ever have its own page on Wiki/TheOtherWiki.[[note]]The page has since been merged with the rest of the episodes summaries.[[/note]]

* SimpleYetAwesome: Most of the series takes place in a 10 x 10 room, without props or scenery. And itís one of the best and funniest sitcoms in the 70-year history of TV.

* AesopAmnesia: Ralph will ALWAYS jump to the conclusion that Alice is cheating on him whenever there is the slightest misunderstanding in communication between the two. Her supposed infidelity is always proven to be a delusion in his own head, but this doesnít stop him from making the same presumption every time the situation arises.

* ThreeCameras: The "Classic 39" episodes were shot using the Electronicam system developed by Creator/DuMont. It used TV cameras equipped with a separate film camera and a beam splitter that would split the image coming through the lens to the two cameras. The image on the video camera was broadcast live and the filmed footage was later edited into a "final cut" based on a kinescope of the live broadcast. ''The Honeymooners'' was the only notable production to use this system; while it did produce much higher quality footage than the kinescope process, the bulky dual-cameras were cumbersome to operate and it was soon made obsolete by videotape.

* {{Dumont}}: Network that aired the earliest "Honeymooners" sketches. The "Classic 39" was shot on the parent company's Electronicam system, ensuring that film negatives of the series were made.

* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: In the musical adaptation, Bryce Bennet (having been fired) vows he'll be back for revenge of Ralph, Alice, Norton and Trixie. Norton responds that's not happening, commenting that there's one scene remaining in the show and he knows Bennet isn't in it.

* CallForward: In the musical adaptation, Ralph's co-workers sing that one day, Ralph may have [[https://i.pinimg.com/originals/0e/b1/df/0eb1df9676b83ff90466fbda64712683.jpg a statue of himself in front of the Port Authority Bus Terminal...]]



* CreatorCameo: Sort of in the musical adaptation. Ralph and Norton write a commercial jingle to appear on ''Cavalcade of the Stars'' and end up meeting Jackie Gleason and Art Carney.



* DarkReprise: In the musical adaptation, a dramatic version of "Old Folks at Home" (aka "Swanee River") is used briefly in the score during a low point for Norton.



** A running gag in the musical adaptation, where Norton comes up with the idea for VCRs (and DVRs), cell phones and drive-thru restaurants. Ralph declares each idea as the worst he's ever heard.

* WhoWouldWantToWatchUs: In the musical adaptation - Jackie Gleason is a character in the show, and hearing about Ralph and Norton's schemes inspires him to create a TV series around them. After settling on the title, Ralph doesn't think it'll work.

Years later, the show's legacy continues to live on: In 2002 CBS aired a made-for-TV biopic called ''Gleason'', starring ''Series/EverybodyLovesRaymond'' 's Brad Garrett as The Great One--one scene of which features Gleason creating the basics of ''The Honeymooners'' along with his other characters. In addition, a [[TheFilmOfTheSeries film adaptation]] with an [[RaceLift all-black cast]] (including Creator/CedricTheEntertainer as Ralph) was released in theaters in June 2005, [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks though this iteration wasn't very well-received]].
