Overview
They're TV's nuttiest roommates! In Neil Simon's The Odd Couple, sportswriter Oscar Madison (Emmy® winner* Jack Klugman) is a bachelor living in slop, who wreaks havoc on a room with the speed of a tornado. Felix Unger (Emmy® winner** Tony Randall) is a hypochondriac, whose cleanliness is just another form of craziness. Oscar lives for the moment, Felix lives for the opera. While Oscar enjoys Felix's cooking, Felix enjoys cleaning Oscar's bedroom. They're the perfect mismatch! Join them and Murray The Cop, the Pigeon Sisters and the Poker Players in an impeccably assembled comic masterpiece. All 24 First Season episodes have been remastered onto 4 discs. Also included is a 5th Bonus Disc, featuring 4 of Jack Klugman's and Tony Randall's favorite all-time series episodes.
