Does anybody know the names and other info of some of the minor characters who performed on the Honeymooners. I am most interested in who played Harvey (aka Har-veee) in the "Bensonhurst Bomber." Also Alice's mother Mrs. Gibson. I was watching one of the older episodes where Alice's "Aunt Ethel" appears. She looked like the same actress who played the mother but it was hard to tell as she was wearing a hat. Finally, the tall, thin actor who played several different parts, such as Harvey Wallstadt, a policeman, a thug, and so on.

"Harvey" was played by George Matthews, a character actor who was usually cast in movies and tv as a tough guy. He had a memorable part in Danny Kaye's first movie, "Up in Arms", and also guested on many tv shows, including Perry Mason and the Phil Silvers show. Shortly before his death (I believe in 1984), he appeared reunited with Leslie Barrett ("George") at one of the R.A.L.P.H. conventions in Long Island.
Frank Marth played Harvey Wallstadter, Bibbo, Grogan the cop, etc. on the Honeymooners. He had many tv roles, including work on Perry Mason, Hogan's Heroes, Gunsmoke and many others. He worked in movies up through the eighties and is still alive as far as I know.
