The Honeymooners > Season 12 > Episode 214

The Honeymooners: Paul Reiser hosts this 2nd of 3 Disney Channel specials. This special introduces "The Honeymooners First Christmas" from Jackie Gleason's "Cavalcade Of Stars". "The Honeymooners Christmas Show" (12/21/1951): It's Christmas Eve. Alice is decorating the tree and setting out holiday refreshments. Ralph comes home with potato salad, but Alice says it's the wrong potato salad. It came from DeVito's, which would have been the right place to go for lasagne, but the right potato salad would have come from Krauss'. Ralph can't believe that Alice is actually asking him to go out for different potato salad, and he's right. She's not asking him. She's telling him. He leaves. Trixie enters, and describes to Alice what Ed gave her for Christmas--a juice squeezer that looks like Napoleon and squirts juice out of its ear. Fenwick Babbitt (played by Jackie Gleason) comes by, to deliver ice and beer. After hauling the beer barrel all over the apartment and standing around with the block of ice, he discovers he's in the wrong apartment, and leaves. Ed enters, escorting Jane Pickens. Jane knew Trixie from vaudeville. Then Joe the Bartender (played by Gleason) stops in. He says a poor soul down at the bar was the victim of a nasty practical joke by Fatso Fogarty, who told him he had "won" a diamond and then handed him a cheap rhinestone. What made the hoax particularly pathetic was that the poor soul, totally taken in, cherished his prize. Alice, moved by the tale, tells Joe to send the poor soul up, and she'll give him a real present. Joe leaves, taking Jane Pickens with him. Now the Poor Soul (played by Gleason in pantomime) arrives. Alice offers him refreshments and a gift, probably the first gift anyone ever gave him. He touchingly returns the favor by giving her his "diamond," then leaves. The next visitor is Rudy the Repairman (also played by Gleason). Rudy is accompanied by his regular assistant, Whitey, whose chief trait is that he speaks unintelligibly. Rudy makes a pass at Alice and Trixie, destroys the television set, and departs. Alice tells Trixie that it doesn't really matter, since she just had the set on trial. Ed brings in Cardenis The Juggler, who performs a fantastic juggling routine. Reggie Van Gleason III (hmmm, that face...) shows up with a band and the June Taylor Dancers. Reggie has been throwing a party at Joe the Bartender's. Now he's come to bring joy upstairs. The band plays. The dancers dance. Reggie does his inimitable Reggie dance. Then he and his entourage file out. Alice realizes it's been a while since she saw Ralph. Ralph (played by... ) reappears, with a cop. Seems Ralph was knocking on the window of Kraus's, and was arrested for attempted break-in. Alice straightens things out. The cop leaves.Alice and Ralph exchange presents. He gets rabbit-lined gloves. She gets a juice squeezer shaped like Napoleon ("and it's practical, too... "). NOTE: This sketch would be performed 2 more times in 1952 and 1953 with different guest stars. Disney Channel. Episode running time: 36:49. Total running time: 50:00.
