Small House of Everything

Small House of Everything

Saturday, November 7, 2015


In the 1950s if there was a popular television show there was a corresponding comic book, and few shows were more popular than The Jackie Gleason Show.  Drawn in a comic style unusual for its time, The Great One's comic book featured many of Gleason's characters, from The Honeymooners (where we never get a full view of Norton's face -- predating Wilson, the neightbor from Home Improvement) to The Poor Soul, and from Reginald van Gleason the III to Rudy the Repairman, and to Stanley R. Sogg presenting Mother Fletcher's products (predating Stephen Colbert's Prescott Pharmaceuticals).

With this particular issue all I can say is, Where's Joe the Bartender?
