In the opening credits for the entire series, the type of luggage Felix is carrying changes.

For the most part Season 5 is wonderful, and it's obvious why Tony Randall snagged the EMMY for it, but Paramount Home Video has destroyed what has got to be one of the most joyous moments in t.v. sitcom history.

There are other musical edits throughout the season, but this one is unforgivable.
