Before He Was Ralph Kramden...

Before he became famous as Ralph Kramden... and apparently before he became fat, Jackie Gleason starred in the 1940’s television series The Life of Riley.

Obviously a low budget production with a lone whistler doing the theme song (even Andy Griffith had a guitar, another whistler in harmony, and finger snaps) -- this show is an interesting look at television long before we were born.

Check out a sample episode in the video widget below:
