The Adentures of Ozzie and Harriet - 1952-1966

The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet

Ozzie Nelson was born in Jersey City, New Jersey on March 20, 1906. He studied to be a lawyer in the 1920's, and on the side he formed a dance band to make extra cash. His band was so successful that he never finished law school and had a super successful musical career. From 1930 until almost 1950 his band was one of the most popular in the country. In 1935 he married the female vocalist for the band, Harriet Hilliard. In 1952, as big bands were giving way to Rock and Roll, he created one of the first 'family' situation comedies that lasted almost 15 years.
