THE SCARECROW OF BENSONHURST
Posted on May 09 2010 by Greg
As a special feature on the new Honeymooners Valentine Special
DVD, there's a sketch from ABC's The Hollywood Palace
in which host Ray Bolger introduces guest star Audrey Meadows and wonders out of the blue, what it would be like if "Alice Kram-Dom" was the bus driver and he was the husband at home.
The sketch opens with the music, "Love Nest," which was actually the Burns & Allen theme, but fittingly ends with "Always," just as the early Honeymooners sketches did. The show was broadcast in 1967 so Bolger does some groovy dancing and refers to the "LBJ Ranch." Cool stuff!
