Note: 

The characters in The Honeymooners were first introduced by Jackie Gleason in a series of sketches on several variety shows in the early 1950s. Their popularity led to the production of a separate half-hour series in the 1955-56 season, now syndicated under the title The Honeymooners. In 1986, Showtime, Viacom's cable network, decided to compile a new package, to be called The Honeymooners, The Lost Episodes (a.k.a. The New Honeymooners), comprised of re-edited kinescopes and tapes of sketches involving the characters done on other variety shows before and after the half-hour series. Showtime characterized these as "lost" episodes, although they were not so much "lost" as merely unseen for 30 years. Some sketches were as short as a few minutes, and some filled the full hour-long format of the show on which they were originally done. These were split into two-parters for The Honeymooners. The "original airdates" included here for The Honeymooners, The Lost Episodes are the dates of the original shows from which the sketches have been derived. Please note that there is some question of the exact content and original air date of New Honeymooners episode 8626.

 

As previously stated, The Honeymooners, The Lost Episodes were transferred from kinescopes.
