Felix and Oscar have a war of words on a talk show.
14 September 2017 | by (New York USA) – See all my reviews

Felix is hired to photograph talk show host David Steinberg and Oscar is needed as a guest on the show. Felix promises to deliver him and Oscar goes on and make jokes about his neurotic clean roommate.

There are non stop laughs in this one. The opening scene shows Felix and Steinberg discovering they both love old radio songs such as Little Orphan Annie's theme.Felix is angry when Oscar becomes a hit on the show with his neat freak jokes. Steinberg then invites Felix to be on the next show with Oscar and make sloppy jokes. It becomes hysterically funny when Felix comes out and falls off his chair, messes up the jokes and finally just decides to start singing Little Orphan Annie! One of the best episodes.
