DiResta Trivia

For anyone who had seen the TV series titled, "The Honeymooners" it was so obvious that the character of Officer John DiResta was inspired by the character of city bus driver Ralph Kramden. Both were about as low in the blue-collar world as one could get and never seemed to be able to get anything right no matter how hard they tried.

John DiResta must have realized that comedy was his strong point and acting maybe wasn't. His character had his real-life name and John had actually been a transit cop in New York City in real life before he hit it big in comedy!

Some series just plain get buried in an awful time slot. The DiResta TV show premiered on Monday night from 8:30 to 9:00PM. At that time, ABC was airing "Monday Night Football", CBS featured "The King of Kings", the second half of "Melrose Place" was on FOX, NBC was running "Conrad Bloom", and thesecond half of "7th Heaven" was on the WB.

The diner where all of the transit cops hung out was named, "Yankee Frank's".
