The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet, Vol. 9 [DVD]
Season three of The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet yields a mere 28 episodes in contrast to the 39 seen in each of the previous seasons, but there is still ample time to savor the talents of Ozzie Nelson, his wife Harriet Nelson, and their ever-growing sons David Nelson (now 17 going on 18) and Ricky Nelson (13 going on 14 -- and not yet a singer). Typically, the opening episode sets forth a family crisis: should Ozzie and Harriet go out on the town for their wedding anniversary, or should they stay home and chaperone the boys' party. Other episodes this season focus on David and Ricky's maturing process, notably the one in which David is poised to earn 50 dollars when he grows to Ozzie's height, and another outing in which Ricky goes out on his first blind date. Although not reflected in the series' current syndication and home-video package, season three of The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet set the pattern for all seasons to come by interspersing new episodes with "classic" reruns, several of these given a new coat of paint by being presented in flashback form with newly-filmed "bookends." ~ Hal Erickson
