” The Honeymooners Tv Or Not Tv Or Not Tv (Tv Episode 1955), Season 5 Episode 1: Tv Or Not Tv

The television show The Honeymooners premiered sixty years ago on October 1, 1955. Its first episode was titled “TV or Not TV.” The show starred Jackie Gleason, Audrey Meadows, Art Carney, and Joyce Randolph. Gleason always said that at heart the show was a love story. Ralph and Alice Kramden would bicker and exchange wisecracks. Ralph might want to send Alice to the moon. But, in the end, he told her she was “the greatest.” In “TV or Not TV” we see that the prosperity during the 1950s was in full swing with new appliances and cars. Ralph is a bus driver and can’t afford any of it. He can’t keep up with the Nortons no less the Joneses. Even Ed Norton, who works in the sewer, and his wife Trixie have a TV and other conveniences — even if they pay for it on credit. Ralph and Alice have had the same apartment and sparse furnishings forever, and she wants some changes. Ralph and Norton put together a scheme to share a TV set.
