It was written by Al Jean and Mike Reiss and directed by Rich Moore. It guest stars Jan Schweiterman as Mr. Roing's Half Brother, Oliver Roing, Danny DeVito as his rival, George Vitti and Bernard Fox as his Secretary, Joshua.
Al Jean and Mike Reiss suggested that Mr. Roing should have a half brother, the staff loved the idea and Jean and Reiss start writing the Script without any help. Director Rich Moore designed and animated the Hotel Owner from the Film My Fair Madeline, created by Writer, Comedian and Producer Conan O'Brien and voiced by Harvey Fierstein. He thought the Character could be a perfect half brother, the result is a success. He even named it "Oliver Roing".
