Radio and television stars Ozzie and Harriet Nelson are best known for their TV show, The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet (1952-1965), which also starred their two real-life sons, David and Ricky (later Rick) Nelson. Ozzie not only acted in the situation comedy, he was the show's producer, director and head writer. The couple had originated the show on CBS Radio, beginning in 1944, and there was also a feature film version, Here Come the Nelsons (1952), that helped to launch the successful TV show.

The couple would later star in the short-lived syndicated sitcom, Ozzie's Girls (1973-1974), which Ozzie wrote, produced and directed as well as starred in.
