First-time-ever home video release of half-a-dozen other HONEYMOONERS skits from The Jackie Gleason Show recently found in the vaults.
First-time-ever DVD appearance of 8 surviving HONEYMOONERS skits from the 1951-1952 Cavalcade of Stars variety show.

Guess we'll see the early skits before Audrey Meadows became Alice Kramden. Some old battleax was Ralph's wife, and she was a hoot!

October is proving to be an expensive month for me, what with this set and the Laurel & Hardy set!

That is expensive but it sounds like a amazing set! I will not getting it since I am sure it does not have english subtitles or closed captioning :thmbsdwn:

If your hearing-aid won't do the trick, it can be just as much of a blast to just "see" it! To watch the antics - I mean, after all, the joke is mostly in the delivery, and Jackie Gleason's delivery is all in his face to watch. The lines or dialog rarely change, "Bang-Zoom," "To the moon, Alice!" "Norton, you're a mental case," etc, etc.

Looks like I was wrong, they did add english subtitles on the Best of HoneyMooners so they will probably have english subtitles on this release and if they do, I will pre-order!

First review of the boxset

http://www.fulvuedrive-in.com/review/11196/The+Honeymooners+Lost+Episodes+1951+%E2%80%93+1957:+60th+Anniversary+Edition+%28MPI+DVD+Box+Set

Must say the review does not really elaborate much on the discs.

Also it seems they are hinting of the Classic 39 episodes coming to blu-ray.

Ordered mine from Amazon. I already own the HoneyMooners classic 39 set so I hope I'm not double dipping here.

No, the Classic 39 aren't in this set, since CBS/Paramount owns the rights to them. This set only has the kinescopes of the live skits from "The Cavalcade of Stars" and "The Jackie Gleason Show".

That is correct. In total 107 episodes on this set spanning 14 discs. The last disc 15th is a bonus materials.

Does anyone know yet which episodes are included in this set?

Here's the thing... I own all of the "Lost Episodes" DVD's that were released over the years. I believe it is 24 volumes in total. Not sure how many episodes off hand that is but I am wondering if this set is just ALL those episodes restored or if it includes all of them PLUS anything new.

Anyone know?

Does it have english subtitles, I looked at the back cover art on Dvdempire and there is no mention of english subtitles, I hope it does and if not, I would be very disappointed since I am deaf and would need subtitles to understand the show

Surprised that Best Buy would have it, since lately they haven't been carrying releases of older TV shows to any extent.

Pre-ordered mine a little over a month ago from Amazon, so I got it delivered yesterday from UPS.

I too was surprised it was in Best Buy but there were 3 sets available when I arrived last night. They did not have the new Perry Mason set which is typical for them now

Anyone know why Amazon has pulled this title?

I will throw myself off a bridge for a) being broke and not being able to afford it the 1st day it comes out; b) see "a"

This is why I always buy something I want right away, for fear of recalls.

Please say it ain't so. I've wanted this for 30 years.

At one of their B&N stores near me, they charged retail -10% off (About 110) and it was the only store that had it, so i passed and went to Best Buy and got it for 80bucks.

I had thought it was going to be recalled because discs 1-3 have a glitch. But looks like that wasn't the case.

What's the glitch? That the menu plays through a song all the way before you can select anything?

Disc 1&2 does that. Disc 3 however does not load the menu it goes straight to the episode "The Prowler".
