We’re sorry if you missed our blogging tribute to one of TV’s legendary sitcoms. But it’s not worth a “homina-homina” — just click on each of the blog titles that are highlighted below to read our bloggers’ takes on them, as we present
As originator of this blogathon, Movie Movie Blog Blog II preferred to take a somewhat “historic” approach, reviewing one episode each from the “Lost Episodes” era, the “Classic 39” period, and the 1970’s TV specials.
Ralph Kramden (Jackie Gleason, of course) goes out of this world to concoct a creation that will win his lodge’s costume contest, as reported by The Midnite Drive-In in his look at “The Man from Space.”
Wide Screen World shows us that, when it comes to his contempt for Latin music, Ralph shoots from the hip in “Mama Loves Mambo.”
Speaking of music, Caftan Woman shows us how Ed Norton (Art Carney) and Ralph make beautiful music together, in a variety of noteworthy scenes from “The Classic 39.”
And lastly, Movierob shows how timeless Ralph Kramden’s story is, as Cedric the Entertainer works to fill Jackie Gleason’s shoes in the 2005 movie update of the TV series.
Our many thanks to the tireless contributors and eager readers of our nostalgic blogathon. Hope you enjoyed the ride!
