The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet, Vol. 8 [DVD]
About the only major change occurring during the fourth season of The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet is the introduction of a new supporting character, Ozzie's neighbor and friend Joe Randolph, played by the ubiquitous Lyle Talbot. Otherwise, it is the same hilarious mixture as before, with paterfamilias Ozzie Nelson getting into various degrees of mischief due to misunderstandings or misguided ego trips, wife Harriet Nelson bringing her husband down to earth with her understated common sense, oldest son David Nelson maneuvering his way through the minefields of higher education and dating (he's in college now, studying psychology), and youngest son Ricky Nelson still feeling his oats (though not yet closing every episode with a song). Memorable season four episodes include the season opener, "David's Engagement," in which Ozzie jumps to the conclusion that David is about to wed; "Homemade Ice-Cream," the first of several outings devoted to Ozzie's obsession with frozen confections; "Football Hero," wherein high school freshman Ricky is torn between joining the football team or signing up for the school band; "A Day in Bed," a typical "mountains out of molehills" episode in which Ozzie encounters all manner of obstacles when he chooses to sleep late on his day off (His day off? When does he ever go to work?); and the prescient "Music Appreciation," built around David's fondness for classical music vs. Ricky's devotion to pop songs. ~ Hal Erickson
