BRAND NEW BING TV Special on Color Jackie Gleason Show Set

Great One News with The Groaner included!!    Good news everyone, Time Life has just come out with a 10 DVD set that has 27 different color Jackie Gleason Shows from the '60's.  Why am I mentioning this here?   Because one of the 27 episodes has BING as guest star.   I saw an ad for it and it showed Bing singing "Don't Fence Me In" and "Thanks A Million".   If the Bing Crosby Enterprises or whatever they call themselves won't release any Bing TV specials at least Time Life will. 
Here's the website you can order it from:

Do these shows include Jackie's incredible opening monologues? If so, I AM IN!!!!! I have been looking for these online for ages...nothing! I loved that show as a kid and remember his great monologues the most. Sitting in his chair with a table next to him for his "tea" and ashtray.   GREAT STUFF!!!


All the best,

I would assume these are either uncut or mostly uncut shows.   Nowhere in the ad does it say "uncut" but it did show Jackie talking with his guests Jack Benny, Milton Berle, Tiny Tim and others.  I also remember those openings Jackie did sitting next to a table drinking booze from a coffee cup, MMMMM, that's good.   But since they say 27 episodes that tells me these aren't clip fests but rather whole or at least near whole shows.  Can't guarantee anything till I see for myself.

Re: BRAND NEW BING TV Special on Color Jackie Gleason Show Set

Greg Van Beek has just sent me a message. "Just wanted to give you a recap of what's on the Jackie Gleason Show from 1967 just released on DVD. Bing's solo of Don't Fence Me In remains, as does the final number Thanks A Million. Dear Hearts & Gentle People, along with San Fernando Valley were cut, and the entire medley Bing sang with Jackie is gone as well. A great pity."
