Ozzie and Harriet, or The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet, was a family sitcom launched on CBS Radio on 8 October 1944. It starred a real-life family, the Nelsons, who consisted of Ozzie and his wife Harriet, and their kids David and Eric. Although the show was never in the top ten list of best radio shows, it was able to attract many listeners. During the first few years of the show, the role of Ozzie’s sons David and Eric were played by professional actors, since both were not allowed to work due to their age. Nevertheless, five years after its premiere, when the show moved to NBC, the real David and Eric entered the show.
