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
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 »
The TV show, 'The Odd Couple' is a classic. Great acting from two pro's with excellent scripts. Growing up I watched the episodes over and over like many other favorites shows. So, when I heard it was coming finally to DVD, I said, 'Finally'. But beware folks... Season one is unaltered... BUT, the other final four seasons are edited... I guess being cheap... a lot of the music/songs were not re-bought. Which is very sad... because a couple episodes ended in song. Even though the episodes are very much intact, the alternations do show, especially the final episode when Felix gets remarried and cut is Oscar singing, "Singing in the rain" at the end. Very bad edit. But the comedy is still very much there but not the true episodes, so beware! Tony Randall, God rest his soul would be disappointed if he saw this.
The Odd Couple I rate a TEN!!! The last four seasons on DVD I rate a 8 cause of the edits.
