EXCLUSIVE

0104-jack-klugman-doc-gettyJack Klugman's cause of death was prostate cancer according to the actor's death certificate ... TMZ has learned.

The document also states Klugman died at his home in the San Fernando Valley. His wife Peggy was by his side.

Klugman -- who died unexpectedly on Christmas Eve -- was most famous for playing Oscar Madison on the legendary TV show "The Odd Couple" ... followed by the title role on "Quincy, M.E." in the 70s and 80s.

The actor had already beat cancer once in the 80s -- and although the throat cancer battle cost him his voice, he eventually trained himself to speak again.

Klugman was 90 years old.

Klugman & Randall were so talented that you simply couldnt see the line between the actors and the characters they played.

His wife "Peggy", as in Peggy Klugman? Sounds like a tool to unplug a toilet.

To the heartless people in here making jokes, you are empty inside. Watch out for that bad karma that's coming your way.

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

One of those things where either the man is too embarrassed to get it looked at, or he figures by the time he gets the courage to do so, he can still beat it. He was so full of vitality and happy to work. We should all have a live as full as he did. Rest in laughter.

When iza older kid watching Odd Couple I wanted to hang out with Oscar and his friends, plays some cards , seemed to be loads of fun.
Felix? Felix has always reminded me of a male version of a California feminist; not so much fun :D

(though that's a compliment to Tony Randall who was masterful in pulling off the character)
