The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet, Vol. 11 [DVD]
Whether it was known by its official title The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet or its temporary on-screen title The Adventures of the Nelson Family, the fact remained that the sitcom about "America's favorite family" entered its ninth season in the fall of 1960. Still in charge of the proceedings both on and off camera is paterfamilias Ozzie Nelson, with wife Harriet Nelson subtly providing the real power behind the throne. Oldest son David Nelson (who in real life was prepping for a career as a director) is now a junior partner in a law firm; and youngest son Ricky Nelson is presumably working his way through college with his many local gigs as a pop singer -- several of which are televised, and thus pop up on the TV set that Ozzie and Harriet install in the wall of their bedroom during this season. New additions to the series' supporting cast include Joe Flynn as David's boss Mr. Kelley, Constance Harper as legal secretary Connie Edwards, Roberta Shore as Ricky's off-and-on girlfriend Joyce, and future My Three Sons regular Barry Livingston as Barry, a neighbor kid. Oh, and let us not forget June Blair, real-life wife of David Nelson, who this season makes her first appearance in the role of David's fiancée -- also named June. ~ Hal Erickson
