Episode Summary

EDIT
Special: The Incredible World of Ed Norton
AIRED:

This was a filmed "Honeymooners" spin-off pilot w/ Art Carney as Ed Norton in his daily routine away from Trixie & the Kramdens. Gleason writers Bob Hilliard, Walter Stone & Rod Parker wrote the script. Character actors Al "Grandpa" Lewis, Phil Leeds & Ron Carey rounded out the cast. This was an hour long Jackie Gleason Show. The first half was hosted by George Burns, w/ guests Sandy Duncan, Morey Amsterdam and ventriloquist Aaron Williams. The 2nd half of the hour was the filmed "Norton" pilot. No scripts exist, however guests stars recall there were 2 scenes. The first, in the sewer with Norton cleaning his teeth and singing. And the second scene taking place in a restaurant. Some accounts say that the episode was such a bomb, that Gleason destroyed all copies.
