The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet is an American sitcom, airing on ABC from October 3, 1952 through March 26, 1966, starring the real life Nelson family. After a long run on radio, the show was brought to television where it continued its success, running on both radio and TV for a couple of years. The series stars Ozzie Nelson and his wife, singer Harriet Nelson (née Hilliard), and their young sons, David and Eric "Ricky" Nelson.
The series attracted large audiences, and although it was never a top-ten hit, it became synonymous with the 1950s ideal American family life.
Ozzie and Harriet holds the title of the longest-running “live-action”/non-animated sitcom in US TV history!
