Halloween With The Nelsons

The Adventures Of Ozzie And Harriet, the classic television series that began life as a radio show, aired from 1952 to 1966 and featured the fictionalized stories of the real-life Nelson family.  In fact, the exterior shots of the television Nelson home, was actually the real Nelson home.  The interior shots were filmed on a soundstage made to resemble the real Nelson home as well.

    Hey, Thorny is the father from Hazel! Which is a better show, imho.

    (Hit post too soon) But this show has a certain appeal that I can’t pin down. It can be too sweet for me, too wholesome for me at times, but there is an interesting appeal to Ozzie and Harriet. And any Halloween episode of any show is always welcome.

    For as long as it was around, that appeal must’ve been felt by many. I’ve got to be in the right mood for its wholesomeness as well though.

    Thinking more about it, it was almost the first reality show. A real life family in fictionalized but believable situations. Could Ozzie And Harriet have been the real beginning of the reality show sickness?

      Hmm. Interesting point.
