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.

As a Baby Boomer and avid Fan of Honeymooners I'm too embarrassed to say what my score was. I'm certain because of my flubs Jackie would say, "to the Moon Lois ...to the Moon.

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.
