Cool A Rare Funny Lost Episode

I’ve been watching the “Lost” episodes on the commercial set that came out a while back. Last night I saw “Letter To The Boss”. I found this episode to be the best so far of the “Lost” episodes as it reminded me of the style of shows they did for the “Classic 39”. For one, I mean Ralph didn’t act like an insane out of control murderer when he got peeved. No outrageous over the top screaming and pounding the table and looking like a man on the verge of mass murder. Here he got mad but in a much more sane and in control manner the way he did on the “Classic 39”.

Also in this episode which I found very funny and laughed along every time I heard it was a man in the audience who laughed at only Ralph’s lines but his laugh was so distinguishable from the rest of the audience, it was a hilarious type laugh. Do any of you remember watching old Warner Bros. cartoons where they’d show a big hippopotamus all dressed up in a suit sitting in the audience, usually of a movie theater, and laughing with this loud hearty gay (using that word in it’s original wonderful meaning) laugh. Without being able to reproduce the laugh myself over a written message, I can only say that laugh was the same laugh this man in the Honeymooners had. Very funny show, and a really refreshing one that didn’t scare me to death when Ralph got out of control mad.

I think the laugh you're talking about was actually the actor who played Ralph's boss watching the show from backstage. I could be mixing this up with another episode, but I remember him having a distinct laugh.

Bill, I think you may be thinking of The Golfer. I swear the guy laughing is the unknown actor playing Mr, Douglas.

I remember a distinct laugh from "The Golfer" also, but that's not what I'm thinking of. I must've gotten Robert Middleton mixed up with Ralph Stantley. Stantley's the one I believe can be heard laughing offscreen in at least one Lost Episode, but not "Letter to the Boss."

I'm wondering if these lost episodes are on my DVD set. I hope so! I've loved this show since childhood. I was always intrigued with their tiny apt and wanted to live in it! The old sink, fridge... even the light on the wall above the sink. Until only recently, I'd thought it was truly street light shining on the wall; looking more closely, tho, I could see it was painted on a backdrop.

That's the laugh, the one from the cartoon you posted, the guy in audience of "Letter To The Boss" sounds just like him.
As far as wondering if the lost episodes are on DVD, yes they are a whole multi-disc set of them, go to Amazon, they aren't hard to find. If you don't know these are the kinescope recordings of the live TV broadcast of the '50's (pre-video tape days) they are NOT in the Honeymooners commercial set of the what is known as the "Classic 39" Honeymooners that is also separately available commercially. Both of these aren't hard to find.

Hazel- thank you very much for the info! Indeed, I have the 39 episode set. Regarding DVDs btw, I sure hope that there will continue to be available, players to play them. With digital having become so prominent, I hope DVD technology won't go down the drain too soon...I'm thinking if getting a back up DVD player just in case. Many of us have extensive DVD collections.

Lol What's Mine Is Mine, Talk to the Hand Netflix/cable

Yeah, just look for Honeymooner Lost Episodes the multi disc set, you can see it above where Sitcoms Online shows all the DVDs that are available to buy of the show your reading message threads on.

By the way, if you don't already own the Lost Episodes DVD set you can get it at Time Warner along with the brand new 1960's Color Jackie Gleason Shows when you choose the "Deluxe Edition" then you get the Lost Episode set and the new Color set. Go here:
https://timelife.com/products/the-ja..._jackiegleason

I don't rely on downloads or computer digital showings thru whatever source you go to, Netflix, Amazon or whatever. I don't use them and never will, for one good reason, anything you get from those sources is only temporary, at the most for as long as you pay for online internet. But a DVD will be yours till the day you die, cancel your internet, cancel your cable, doesn't matter, once the DVD is in your hands you have it made and will not have to rely on the "generous" good graces of a digital download "service" or cable. You're your own independent owner and boss with DVDs.

DVDs will be around as long as people don't get stupid. Hmm, maybe you do have to worry.

Hazel- thank you for the info and too, the link!

I never download stuff( well, not since I'd pirated music big time during the naptser days) . I also don't have cable, nor satellite. I just get free network tv. So I couldn't agree more with you vis a vis DVDs. Indeed, you have them forever pretty much. Plus, with digital: what if their info become wiped from your device? The only reason I worry about DVDs is that's it's increasingly hard to find players- especially in stores- tho one can still find them on eBay. I just worry that digital will replace disc technology. Hopefully my fears are unfounded.

Thumbs up Did You Know

They still have DVD players at Best Buy, Walmart and Target (the 3 stores I most often go to when shopping "offline".
Also you might not know but you can play regular DVDs on Blu Ray players, so if you were to buy a Blu Ray player (something I still have refused to do) you could still play all your DVDs on the Blu Ray player. That's the one good thing about this change in technology, usually when one form replaces another you have to start your collection all over again in the new format, but this was the only time the new format allows for the old format to still be played on it!!

Hazel- thank you for the recommendation of blue ray should regular DVD players become less available. That's good to know. I'm just thinking due to the fact that DVDs are still being released that it'd make sense to still manufacture players. However, I do wonder if blu Ray players are multi region. My current DVD player is: I have a set of DVDs with a British comedy on them (hi de hi) which I just love, but which is available only in region 2. I can play them on my DVD player(Super Sonic).
