Western Animation: The Oddball Couple
The Oddball Couple
was De Patie Freleng Enterprises
' Funny Animal
take on Neil Simon's The Odd Couple
, produced as a Saturday Morning Cartoon
. It ran for two seasons, from 1975 to 1977.
The main characters were Spiffy, a Neat Freak
cat voiced by Frank Nelson, and Fleabag, an unkempt dog voiced by Paul Winchell
. As in the play and the live-action sitcom, most of the comedy came from personality clashes between Spiffy and Fleabag, but turned Up to Eleven
to take advantage of the animated format.
