ABC's The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet was a long-running sitcom that starred the Nelson family. The Nelsons, who were a real family off-screen, included parents Ozzie and Harriet and their sons, David and Ricky. Their wholesome exploits were transferred from radio to television in 1952, and many of the stories were based on real events that had occurred in their lives.
