Oscar Madison

Oscar Madison is a main character in the sitcom The Odd Couple, based on the play by Neil Simon. Although this show has had many reboots and spin-offs, Jack Klugman portrayed Oscar in the original show from the 1970s. He is the messy best friend of Felix Unger. He enjoys drinking beer and smoking cigars. When both their wives leave, they move into an apartment together, and hilarity ensues. Unlike Felix, he maintains a sloppy sense of style. His main outfit includes gray sweats and a Mets baseball cap.
