The premise is simple: NeatFreak photographer Felix Ungar[[note]]Unger in the 1970 and 2015 series[[/note]] (Art Carney on stage; Jack Lemmon in the film; Tony Randall, Ron Glass, and Thomas Lennon on TV) is kicked out by his wife, and with no place else to go, must move in with his friend, sports writer Oscar Madison (Creator/WalterMatthau on stage and film, Jack Klugman on stage and TV, Demond Wilson and Matthew Perry on TV), a [[TrashOfTheTitans total slob]]. The TV show added a small supporting cast, including Murray, a dim-witted but lovable police officer.

Added DiffLines:

* SneakingSnacks: In "The Fat Farm", Felix talks Oscar into joining him at a weight-loss retreat he attends every year. Outside food is not allowed, but Oscar manages to sneak in a number of items from a deli nearby. Unfortunately for him, Felix can identify every one by smell...as well as the can opener Oscar brought.

'''''The Odd Couple''''' is a 1965 Broadway play by Neil Simon, which was later adapted into a 1968 movie, which itself was later adapted into a sitcom which ran from 1970-1975. All three are highly regarded. The play also spawned a couple less highly regarded television adaptations: ''WesternAnimation/TheOddballCouple'', a 1975 animated series (starring a cartoon dog and cat), and ''The New Odd Couple'', a 1982 sitcom with black actors in the lead roles.
