He was called The Great One. John Herbert Gleason was born in New York, New York. "Jackie" had a rough adolescence, filled with abandonment, tragedy, street gangs and low-wage work. Once Gleason got his break, few believed the fast-living funnyman would make it last. Yet with his entertainment savvy, drive and charm, he would become one of the titans of 20th-century pop.

He turned his roots into source material for one of the all-time great sitcoms, The Honeymooners. The blue-collar characters lived on television for decades, from their sketch comedy origins to their beloved sitcom to reunion specials.

15/25. That's good for me. A few guesses for sure. Gotta admit, Buford T. Justice is my favorite character of Jackie's.

Jackie Gleason died (in his home in Lauderhill, Florida (west of Ft. Lauderdale) on June 24, 1987, at only 71. In 2000, a statue of him as Ralph Kramden in "And away we go!" pose was installed at the Miami Beach Bus Terminal. He deserves every honor and statue he can get for what he did to make people laugh for over 65 years now! The world needs more Gleasons (and Art Carneys!) for entertainment and laughter, but there was only one "The Great One" as his appropriate nickname was bestowed on him. God bless Jackie Gleason, and Art Carney!

I totally agree, you could not have said it better. Jackie Gleason was one of the great ones. Entertainers like Red Skelton, Dean Martin, Andy Williams, Bing Crosby, Phil Silvers just to name a few. TV shows have no names acting in a cascade of no entertainment programs nowadays. What’s up with all the cop programs, none are realistic, I can say that due to being in law enforcement for 38 years. Most people believe what they see on TV as being how it really is on the street. The only old cop show that came close was Hill Street Blues. Okay, I’ll get off my soapbox.

Hello, my name is Connie, and as you can see, I didn't do so well, on The Honeymooners quiz, from the website, METV.com. The only time, I ever watched, all the episodes, of The Honeymooners, was on New Year's Eve, into New Year's Day, when WPIX11 channel 11, has The Honeymooners marathon on. This is when I watch all of the episodes. Other than that, I'm not much of, a Honeymooners fan. I apologize, to all the Honeymooners fans, and to all the baby boomers, of this era, that I'm not a fan, of The Honeymooners. I'm so sorry to you all. I thank you for listening to me, and you all take care, and may God bless you all, and may He keep you all, in His Sacred Heart, and may His Holy Spirit, shine upon you all. May God also, give you all, the strength, all the love, all the power, all the courage, and all of His divine mercy, you all so desperately deserve. Again, thank you for listening to me.

"I liked it better with a sock in it" .." I like you better with a sock in you" 21 out of 25. Thought I'd do better. Watched as a kid...still do. Some of the best lines ever.

Holy whackamolie, I got 18 of 25 right, and I haven't watched the show since I was a kid. Mostly, the questions on later shows threw me.

#17 made two errors in the answers listed. The show was taped in Miami Beach, not in Miami. I saw one taped episode in 1966 at the then-Miami Beach Auditorium. Gleason did not live in Miami. He lived in Lauderhill, a city west of Ft. Lauderdale, 25 miles north of Miami.
I bet that was fun!

I lived down there at the time and I didn't notice that! Good eye.
It was! The episode was unfortunately not a Honeymooners' episode, it was a variety show. But I still enjoyed being there and seeing him and the others less than 75 feet from my seat.

I knew it was Miami Beach, and I later looked up where he lived, and it was in Lauderhill, near a golf course. He is buried there now since that sad day on June 24, 1987, at only 71. He was a big man in more ways than one, and that is why in tv history, he earned every bit of his nickname, "The Great One."
Loved The Jackie Gleason Show.

So what's sillier? Saying "tally ho" to a fox or "hello" to a golf ball?
MadMadMadWorld Kelle 28 days ago
That episode, "The Golfer" was one of the highlights of the 39! So many great lines, and Ed's impersonation of a golfer with his silly address ("Hello, Ball!") is one of the funniest, and best remembered bits in his long association as that character. Art Carney could do drama, just as superbly as he did 'Ed Norton." He won the 1975 Best Actor award for his role in "Harry and Tonto" 1974 movie. Art made The Honeymooners funnier and memorable than if it was only Alice and Ralph having their disputes and Ralph's money schemes.

23/25. Tripped up on #s 10 and 18 (I always thought Audrey Meadows won the most Emmys, judging by that photo of her accepting the award in Donna McCrohan's 1978 book "The Honeymooners Companion").

Gleason and "The Honeymooners" was, is, and *always will be,* #1 in my book! (Now, MeTV, when are you ever going to show the "lost" episodes of "The Honeymooners?" I'm pretty sure CBS included said episodes in the current "Honeymooners" syndication package!)

18/25. A lot of folks don’t know that Jackie Gleason was the first Chester Riley on TV.
