    A three-cartoon series produced by the McKimson unit, consisting of The Honey Mousers (1956), Cheese It, the Cat (1957), and Mice Follies (1960). The series was closely based on the Honeymooners television sketches of Jackie Gleason and Art Carney. At one point, according to Solomon, Gleason threatened to block The Honey Mousers release; however, he was so pleased with the print that McKimson sent him that he withdrew his objections.

    The voices of Ralph, Morton and Alice -- based on the characters played by Gleason, Carney and Audrey Meadows, respectively -- were provided by Daws Butler and June Foray.
