You have to be old enough to appreciate this. If you don't understand this, you are too young!

Ok, that one is funny. I always wished she would leave him on the show. But that was unheard of back then!

Guilty! I am definitely old enough to appreciate it. (Just don't got to Fibber McGee and Molly - The Honeymooners is far enough back.)

*sob* I don't get it, but seriously I'm not that young so I must have just missed it. I'm sure it's very funny. :) Have a great weekend!!

I watched some show about Jackie Gleason last week. It showed some of the Honeymooners clips, but none with the "to the moon" threat.

It is still a funny bit.

And yes, I do remember Fibber McGee and Molly, The life of Riley, The Shadow, Amos and Andy, just to name a few.

Thanks for the remembrance.

I'm old enough to remember this - and it is very funny! Michele sent me.

I don't remember it and sometimes I feel as if I'm a senior citizen on the web--at least compared to most folks--I wonder. But growing up in the 60s and 70s, we watched very little TV. I remember the "honeymooners," but it was something my parents watched.

I'm old, but not that old.

But I am wondering now about whether maybe Jimmy Hoffa was on one of those satellites they sent out into deep space in the 1970's.

To the moon, Alice!!!!

PS. I'm only 33 even though I had a dream the other night in which I told someone who thought I was 12 that I was 32.

At least your problem is looking young.

I'm 43, but the other day I had my first ever, 'You're not a senior citizen, are you?' question. That absolutely floored me.

I'm sure that question will become more and more common in the future.

Very good! I feel proud that I'm old enough to get it.
