Jackie Gleason (February 26, 1916June 24, 1987) was a television and film actor for several decades in the 20th century.

He is best known as Ralph Kramden on The Honeymooners and later as Sheriff Buford T. Justice in the Smokey and the Bandit series.

Behind the scenes

  • Jackie Gleason's character on The Honeymooners, Ralph Kramden, worked as a bus driver for the fictional Gotham Bus Company in New York, but although Ralph was sometimes seen at the bus depot in various episodes, he was never actually seen driving a bus on-screen. However, Gleason did appear behind the wheel of a bus — with his costars Audrey Meadows, Art Carney and Joyce Randolph as passengers — in specially posed publicity shots for the show.[1]
