Felix and Oscar are an extremely odd couple: Felix is anal-retentive, neurotic, precise, and fastidiously clean. Oscar, on the other hand, is the exact opposite: sloppy and casual. They are sharing an apartment together, and their differing lifestyles inevitably lead to some conflicts and laughs. Written by

Years after the show went off the air, Tony Randall recalled getting questions about the *true* nature of Felix and Oscar's relationship. Once, Randall and his wife took a cab from the airport to their California home. As Randall's wife walked into the house with a suitcase, the cab driver asked Tony, "Who's that lady?" Randall replied, "That's my wife." The cab driver looked surprised. "Your wife?" "Of course," said Randall. "Who did you think it was?" The cab driver shrugged. "I always thought that...you and Oscar were...you know." See more »
In the opening credits for the entire series, the type of luggage Felix is carrying changes.
When he is indoors (leaving his apartment or arriving at Oscar's) he is carrying a white suitcase. But when he is walking outside he is not carrying the white suitcase. See more »
I'm about the only person I know who prefers the first season (shot in cinematic style with a single camera) to later seasons, but even after they switched to the multiple-camera technique and live audience (with the accompanying broadening of the humor), it was still better than 90% of TV sitcoms ever (unlike, say, *Happy Days*, on which quality plummeted when they made a similar change).
The only thing that really interferes with my enjoyment of *TOC* is the horrible, horrible celebrity cameos.
I mean, Rodney Allen Rippy?
