Watching these classic 1955-1956 episodes of The Honeymooners is likely to leave viewers seduced. The high quality of the shows' humor is a given, to be sure; between the characterizations by Jackie Gleason, Art Carney, Audrey Meadows, and Joyce Randolph(the sole surviving star of the show as of November 2003), the writing by one of the best teams of its era, and Gleason's overall production, the series is timeless in its appeal and has been delighting audiences in syndicated reruns since the end of the1950s. One could reasonably assume that any of these "Classic 39" episodes (the ones from 1955-1956, shot on film in front of a live audience, as opposed to the so-called "lost episodes," which originated as sketches on Gleason's variety show, presented live on-the-air and preserved on kinescope), each of which has been rerun thousands of times, would have nothing new to reveal -- but that would be wrong. The transfers and the playback on these discs are so sharp -- superior even to the current broadcastmasters -- that there are details one just never saw before. In "The Bensonhurst Bomber," the shadows that fall across the pool tables in the opening scene, and even the texture of the fabric of Ralph Kramden's (Jackie Gleason) uniform or in guest playerGeorge Mathews' suit is visible. And in "Funny Money" (where Ralph finds a bag filled with money), the picture is so sharp that the lines in Ralph's custom-made sports coat shimmer. One can also appreciate the realism of the Brooklyn street backdrops andthe alleyway backdrop seen out the Kramdens' window, right down to the dusk and night lighting effects. In addition, one can now see exactly how carefully the details, even in the costumes, right down to the badges and buttons of Ralph Kramden's uniform,
