The series was an adaptation of Neil Simon’s play of the same name. They did the movie then decided to do the series. First you have the play then the film and the series. It has a clue following like you will not believe. Do not see the remake that they did in 2015 it is not good stick withe original. The series won a Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Continued Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Comedy Series (Jack Klugman) with nominations for Outstanding Series—Comedy, Outstanding New Series, and Outstanding Continued Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Comedy Series (Tony Randall). One of my best friend told me that was on one day back in the 1977 there were still reruns playing. I loved it. Funny as hell well written and casted. The thought that on neat freak and one who is not and disorganized  as hell who gets in trouble all the time and disrupt the peace and quiet that Felix need with funny one liner jokes was entertaining as hell. The first season was the introduction of Felix and Oscar. Terrific series and good times only.
