THE HONEYMOONERS SPECIALS:
A CHRISTMAS CAROL​

Comes to DVD on November 2, 2021
SYNOPSIS:

In 1977, Jackie Gleason, Audrey Meadows, Art Carney and Jane Kean reunited for the second of four hour-long specials representing the final performances of their classic Honeymooners characters.
Ralph enlists Alice, Ed and Trixie to perform with him on stage after he agrees to supervise and star in the annual office holiday fund-raiser for a charity chosen by his boss’ wife. Ralph ends up rewriting and reimagining Charles Dickens’ dramatic classic A Christmas Carol with comedic results when Ed serves as the inexperienced director.​

So anyone know why it's taken YEARS for this special to be released on DVD? MPI released the other three 1970's ABC "Honeymooners" specials years ago!

Well, the Christmas Carol Special is uncut and looks good 'n sharp 'n colorful on dvd. The Women's Lib special is still missing the monologue, the last two sketches that feature Reggie Van Gleason, III and a dance number with Gleason, as well as the end credits.

Nice to have, though. There's still that Poor Soul in Christmas Land show, The Incredible World of Ed Norton, and the uncut version of Life Upon the Wicked Stage left to surface.

This is the one where Ralph's boss is Gale Gordon, who makes a lovely reference to his secretary "Lucy" or "Lucille". I thought MPI stopped years ago. Havent seen any classic TV from them for ages
