    Hoo boy. I can’t wait to hear your take on this one.

      On second thought, my earlier comment should read:

      Boy, I say, boy, I can’t wait to hear your take on this one.

    The lottery winner is not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but you still have to feel sorry him. Living with a chimp, not good – ask Melania

    I think you’re gonna have a lot of fun with this one…I’ve only seen it once, when working through the box set. I enjoyed it – but this is another a bit like No Time To Die : this time, we’ll drop Columbo in a Loony Toon…

    Still better than Strange Bedfellows, though.

  4. Not only same season as the last one, but the same disc! Odd episode. So much wrong, but one of my favorite Falk performances. There were some close ups on his face that just said “wise old detective”.

    I wonder if in an alternative universe universe, Rip Torn’s character was Patch’s O’Hoolihan from Dodgeball, after his fall from grace in the events in this episode…

    Tend not to re-watch this one often, but not bad. Got to love an Columbo episode with a chimp.
