A selection of HONEYMOONERS illustrations by some great illustrators via Drew Friedman!

"In 1991, CBS VIDEO hired 20 illustrators (including myself) to create the VHS cover box art for the 'Classic 39' TV episodes of 'The Honeymooners,' starring Jackie Gleason, 'with the stars Art Carney, Audrey Meadows and Joyce Randolph,' released on 20 cassettes, each containing two shows. The illustrations were art directed by the famed Lou Dorfsman, who years earlier had created the iconic CBS logo. They've since been relegated to the dust-bin of VHS history, so I wanted to revive them here. These are some of my favorites, starting with the legendary Al Hirschfeld's illustration depicting 'THE GOLFER.'"
