Storyline

One is neat, one is a slob. Both are divorced and need a place to stay. That's how fussy photographer Felix Unger and sloppy sportswriter Oscar Madison end up sharing a New York City apartment. The arguments are endless but funny; it's like watching your parents fight. Written by Jwelch5742

Trivia

The original voices of Linus and Lucy from the "Peanuts" animated programs both appeared in early episodes of the series. Christopher Shea (Linus) appeared in some episodes as the across-the-hall neighbor Phillip, and Pamelyn Ferdin (Lucy) originated the role of Felix's daughter Edna. See more »

Goofs

The apartment that Felix and Oscar share changes completely from the first few episodes. Since they don't move and the first is clearly larger than the later one, it's an error of continuity. See more »

Quotes

Oscar Madison: Sterilizing the wound.
Felix Unger: With beer?

SEASON 5 Most Joyous Moment Ruined!
25 November 2008 | by jclauserSee all my reviews

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. In the last episode when the the minister announces that Felix and Gloria are once again husband and wife, Oscar erupts into a dance and belts out "I'm Singing in the Rain." Not so in this truncated release. The song is wiped out completely and the scene is ruined. Could the rights to the tune really have been that expensive? There are other musical edits throughout the season, but this one is unforgivable.
