THE ODD COUPLE

By Wednesday, February 24, 2016 43 Permalink

The Odd Couple premiered on Broadway in 1965 – revived in a successful film in 1968 and became a television series in the 1970s…

The plot was simple – yet amusing. Two mismatched roommates –

  • Felix Ungerneat, uptight perfectionist (played by Tony Randall)
  • Oscar Madisonunkept, disheveled, easy going  (played by Jack Klugman)

Each episode kept me laughing as I watched these two try to make a go of it, despite the fact that they were polar opposites.

While Felix could be a bit of a perfectionist, Oscar went through life without a care in the world.

  • Oscarwhen it comes to appearance he just doesn’t #giveadoodle (played by Jaxson)

    Hehe! Cute! 🙂

    I have never seen the play, movie or tv show but a partner and I had to play a scene from the show for our theater class. 🙂 So that’s the only way I know about it. I should probably see if I can find it on a site sometime an watch it, huh? 🙂

      To be honest Jenny – I think you can catch it late at night on one of those cable shows. Not sure how “funny” it would be in this era. How neat that you played a scene in your theatre class. Have a great day – and thanks for stopping by.

      I did a scene from it too!

    I loved the movie!!

      I can’t really remember the movie – not as much as I do the tv series!

  • Elaine

    Lol! That’s hilarious. The truth is, I love both of their styles. 🙂

    • Cathy Bennett
      February 24, 2016

      So do I Elaine – they are so different. Whenever Harley wears a tie or any article of clothing he is stiff as a board as he moves about. Jax? could care less….

  • Emma

    They make an adorable odd couple!

    • Cathy Bennett

      You’re so sweet Emma – but I would have to agree with you!

    They look amazing! Your ironing was a success I take it 🙂

    • Cathy Bennett
      February 25, 2016

      HA! Yes, I did get the wrinkles out of Jaxson’s tie only for him to swing it from one side to the other, chew on it, and lay all over it LOL My maniac has his own style I reckon.

    I loved the movie and the TV show. So funny. The boys definitely look like they’re each playing their parts well! Rita would probably be more of an Oscar – especially at meals or drinking time! Our last 2 girl dogss were both the daintiest eaters/drinkers – we can’t get used to her being such a slob! 🙂

    • Cathy Bennett
      February 25, 2016

      I cannot picture Rita being a slob at anything 🙂 She looks so dainty in all her photos. PAWhaps she just really likes her food.

    I loved that show, I saw every episode! What a fun analogy to use with our dogs – and totally perfect! My girls are an odd couple too, completely different. I look forward to finding out where this beautiful photo was taken. Do tell!
    Love & biscuits,

      Cathy between The Odd Couple and the Patty Duke show – I was glued to the television. Those were the decades of great writing. The place we were at is part of my Doodle Spot series and I can’t wait to tell it all… Take care and have a great week

    That is a great photograph. If I had to choose a tv show or someone who looks like me, I wwould either choose Mr. Peabody or BOLT (the Disney movie).

    WOOF WOOF!

    • Cathy Bennett
      February 25, 2016

      I’m “ole school” so I like Mr. Peabody for your Piranha…

    Mr. N is a Felix! He likes things orderly.

      February 25, 2016

      I could see that LOL – he always looks so “sharp” in his outfits too.

      And you Bentley steals my heart all the time – love his eyes.

  • Callie, Shadow, and Ducky's Mom
    February 25, 2016

    Ducky is the female Dennis the Menace! Shadow – and Callie while she was still on earth – is more like Dennis’s friend Margaret, but mellowed with age.

      OMDoodle – I loved Dennis the Menance and Margaret was one of my favorite characters. I wonder what happened to those actors…

    Hilarious! I am not sure what couple these two resemble …Bonnie and Clyde? Fred and Ginger? Fred and Ethel?? Great post! They are such cuties

    • Cathy Bennett
      February 25, 2016

      Thanks Deirdre – I would say Fred and Wilma for your two! #Fintstonesrock

      • Dashlilly

    Your Odd Couple is the cutest! They don’t even have to wear clothes to be a ton of fun. 🙂 My kitties are not fans of wearing clothes, but I do Photoshop some on them from time to time. Shhhh! They will never know! LOL

    • Cathy Bennett
      February 26, 2016

      Our wardrobe mostly consists of ties. Harley does have a set of cuffs with rhinestone buttons #dontask for formal affairs LOL They are a riot to live with – trust me.

    I loved your comparison to the Odd Couple – clever! And adorable pic!

    • Cathy Bennett
      February 26, 2016

      Thanks Christine, they are definitely an “odd” pair. I love their unique styles. Thanks for stopping by, come back again soon

    This is great….too funny! I’d have to think about what TV show my three might be like!

    • Cathy Bennett
      February 29, 2016
