Episode Summary

EDIT
9/29/1962
AIRED:
This is the premiere episode of Jackie Gleason's new variety series. Guests include Art Carney, who joins Jackie for a reprise of The Honeymooners, and brothers Wayne and Jerry Newton in their national TV debut.
Joe the Bartender and Crazy Guggenheim talk about pay-TV and that really fat comedian Jackie Gleason. A musical take-off on The Untouchables called The Retouchables featuring Jackie as crime fighter "Elliott Flesh". In The Honeymooners, Ralph wants Ed to get serious about civil defense and spend a week in the basement/air raid shelter. They consider this better than taking their wives on a trip to Atlantic City. Trouble reaches a peak when Ralph & Ed attempt to sleep in bunk beds and Ed bursts a pipe.moreless
