After the 1954-1955 season (one hour live broadcasts), Jackie Gleason produced a series of 39 filmed half-hour episodes of "The Honeymooners" which was syndicated (1955-1956). For the following 1956-1957 season, the Jackie Gleason Show returned to a live one-hour variety format with a Honeymooners sketch included in many of its broadcasts. After this season, The Honeymooners sketches would not be revived until the 1966-1967 season of The Jackie Gleason Show.
In the fall of 1958 Jackie Gleason returned to a live half-hour series scheduled on Fridays. That effort, which also featured Buddy Hackett, was cancelled after only three months on the air.
In the fall of 1962 Gleason was back to a Saturday Night slot, which he occupied for another eight seasons. From 1962 to 1966 it was called JACKIE GLEASON AND HIS AMERICAN SCENE MAGAZINE, and featured topical comedy sketches as well as musical numbers. One of Gleason's characters, Joe the Bartender, appeared regularly opposite regular Frank Fontaine, who as Crazy Guggenheim traded stories with Joe and then would change character all together singing a song, after which Joe the Bartender would sing his closing signature song. Sue Ane Langdon was also featured regularly.
Jackie Gleason premieres his brand new series. On the debut show, the Newton Brothers, Wayne Newton and Jerry Newton, make their first national TV appearance. In addition, there is a "Joe the Bartender" sketch with Frank "Crazy Guggenheim" Fontaine, who talks to Joe about "Pay TV." There is a "Honeymooners" sketch about "air raid shelters," with old sidekick Art Carney and Sue Ane Langdon plays "Alice."
