Cavalcade of Stars

Cavalcade of Stars


This was the original home of Jackie Gleason and his list of characters, including The Honeymooners comedy sketch. A form of vaudevillian comedy, this show had music, comedy and dancing along with a slew of classic characters invented by Jackie Gleason including the mustachioed millionaire Reginald Van Gleason III; friendly Joe the Bartender; loudmouthed braggart Charlie Bratten; mild-mannered Fenwick Babbitt; Rudy the Repairman; and a put-upon character known only as the Poor Soul.
