In 1955, On the Christmas episode of “THE HONEYMOONERS”, Inside Ralph Kramden (Jackie Gleason) is a little boy trying to get out and sneak a peek at his Christmas presents — a trait that is both endearing and troublesome, leading as it does to battle-of-the-sexes arguments with Alice (Audrey Meadows) over maturity and trust.

Away we go on yet another heart-rending, side-splitting adventure for Kramden and Norton (Art Carney). “'Twas the Night Before Christmas” is the perfect holiday recipe: Take one part O. Henry, combine with a heaping cup of keen observations on human nature, add a dash of Brooklyn, sprinkle liberally with comic genius, place on a high flame, and let bubble for about a half hour.
