November 13th Is ODD COUPLE DAY
Happy Odd Couple Day. If you recall, the opening credits to the Tony Randall/Jack Klugman series (1970-75) opened with "On November 13th, Felix Unger was asked to remove himself from his place of residence. That request came from his wife." Do you know why November 13th was chosen? It was Garry Marshall's birthday. The immortal words to the opening were voiced by the recently-deceased William Woodson, and the words were written by Randall and Klugman's agent, Abner "Abby" Greshler. Because of Abby, his last name became Murray the cop's last name on the show. To stoke your memory cells, click below.
