Speaking of the Late, Great Tony Randall…

I found the pilot for the much underrated but superb Tony Randall Show online. As Judge Walter Franklin, Randall was a kind of de-neuroticized Felix in constant high dudgeon. And, of course, there was the inimitable Mario Lanza.


You’re so lucky to know me.

For some extra fun: outtakes from the original Odd Couple series, put together by the late, great Jack Klugman. (Warning: some of these outtakes contain naughty language that may inflame sensitive souls to acts of spiritual violence. Please exercise caution and prudence while viewing.)

    1. Not sure why it didn’t click. It changed networks once, from ABC to CBS, if I’m not mistaken. People forget that The Odd Couple was never a ratings hit. In fact, it was slated to be cancelled at the end of every season — but the reruns over the summer did well enough that execs would stay the execution — until 1975.
