Also did a turn as Felix on THE NEW ODD COUPLE.

Aside from comic acting generally, what do Art Carney, Jack Lemmon, Tony Randall, Ron Glass, German actor Eddi Arent and Thomas Lennon have more specifically in common? Frank Nelson did the voice for the cartoon cat version, Spiffy. Sally Struthers was the first to play Florence, in the female-lead stage version.
