Here's a good example -- the characters in the January 19, 2016, sequence only appeared this one day. And they were there to further the story (by showing what happened to a corpse).
|Jackie Gleason as Ralph Kramden and |
Art Carney as Ed Norton in "The Honeymooners."
Their jobs were just a little different in the golden age sitcom -- Ralph Kramden drove a bus, and Ed Norton worked in the sewers. But Kramden was always quitting his job to pursue another get-rich-quick scheme, so it's not out of the realm of possibility that eventually the transit system just stopped taking him back. And as for Norton, collecting garbage might even be considered a promotion!
Thanks to Curtis and Staton for sequences like this one. It keeps readers like me on my toes!
