In reality, Tony Randall
was a frequent guest on the game show, Password
(1961) (as it's now referred to). Tony did display his confrontational ways to the delight of host Allen Ludden
. In a showing of Password Plus
(1979) during the late 1970's, Tony interrupted his counterpart Marcia Wallace
, as Marcia's partner used a form of the word to win a round of Password. Tony objected and overstepped his bounds over the judges. All in good fun. See more
Though this episode--which takes place in 'current' time (I.e., the early 1970s), Oscar's "new" girlfriend Mitzi--who's this episode's "MacGuffin", was actually introduced in the second-season episode, "Speak For Yourself", which takes place in the early 1950s, where Oscar introduces Felix to Mitzi--played by the same actress, Ronda Copland
, and portrayed in the exact same manner. See more
