This week's Videos of the week star "The Great One", Jackie Gleason and
his single year season of "The Honeymooners." This episode of the
classic series is entitled "'Twas the Night Before Christmas."

broadcast on the DuMont Network on December 21, 1951. A segment of the
show was called "The Honeymooners" and starred Pert Kelton in the part
of Alice. She was replaced later by Audry Meadows in the series.
This is a 41-minute segment and was included in a stash of kinescopes
which were held by Gleason until the early 1980s. They were later
shown on the Showtime Network under the title of "The Honeymooners-The
Lost Episodes." The exact same script of this segment was later
re-enacted in a later year with Audry Meadows as Alice.
