Watch for when Crazy Guggenheim and Joe discuss the movie The Hustler. I love it when Crazy says he remembers the guy who played Minnesota Fats used to be on the Art Carney show.

9 thoughts on “The Jackie Gleason Show”
My Father and I watched that show when it was first televised. Can the all of the shows be purchased.
Ditto, Tom. Dad and I loved it, and I had a particular fondness for Crazy Guggenheim. I was only 6 at the time, and it was in reruns:
but he struck me so funny (as did Gleason). Evidently they are available on Amazon.
I don’t know what possessed me to look this up (I was looking for Crazy, aka Frank Fontaine), other than the fact that I turn 67 tomorrow, and everyone I have known in my life is dying off. I hope it’s not a sign…
Same here brother, I used to watch Jackie Gleason when my parents put it on in the 60s and Crazy Guggenheim was one of the highlights. I’ve been listening to old Gunsmoke episodes on the radio and online, as well as Our Miss Brooks, Duffy’s Tavern, Johnny Dollar, Dragnet and a few other old shows for the past two years,
I have to admit that the movie The Hustler is a joy for me. Looking back I still find it interesting.
I vaguely remember watching the show with my parents during its final years (1968-70). I was a very little boy then but I remember that The Honeymooners skits had musical numbers in them.
One Halloween I went “begging” for candy as kids do. It was Jackie Gleason night, and virtually EVERY house we stopped at had him on the TV! It was awesome, as we always watched it and loved it! I remember my dad laughing his butt off!!
A happy blast from the past
The same goes for me, brother; my parents used to turn on Jackie Gleason when I was a kid, and Crazy Guggenheim was always one of the shows that I looked forward to the most. For the last two years, I’ve been watching old episodes of Gunsmoke on the radio and streaming them online. I’ve also been watching Our Miss Brooks, Duffy’s Tavern, Johnny Dollar, and Dragnet, along with a few other classic television series.
remembered being stationed at Homestead AFB 1983-84. One of the local Miami stations had his reruns on at 11am. I’d bust a gut getting back to my room just to watch Joe the Bartender
