Can you think of peanut butter without jelly gradually creeping its way into your mind? Let’s face it, a lot of the Classic TV we grew up watching kind of feels the same way. How often can you think of a television show and not think of a pair of characters who have provided you some of your biggest laughs and greatest thrills? C’mon, play this game with us. You think of I Love Lucy. and who comes to mind? Lucy and Ethel. The Honeymooners? Ralph Kramden and Ed Norton. The X-Files? Mulder and Scully. The Odd Couple? Oscar and Felix. Laverne and Shirley? Okay, that was admittedly an easy one, but you get our point.
Here’s the thing about TV.

And so often when it comes to those characters, they’re usually paired with a partner in crime, whose adventures we get completely swept up in. With this mind, we’re taking a look back at some of our favorite classic TV duos.
