The Nelson Family Presents 24 Episodes of America's Best-Loved Family

Rick and David Nelson grew up before America's eyes in the 1950s hit television show The Adventures Of Ozzie & Harriet.
And as time went on, both boys grew into popular heartthrobs with Ricky becoming a genuine teen idol and recording star.
Ricky began singing in the show's fifth season and continued on through the end of the series in 1966.

The Adventures Of Ozzie & Harriet - Best Of Ricky And Dave gathers episodes across the show's 14-year run that focus on the trials and triumphs of the Nelson sons as they grow from boys to men. Ozzie remains the good-natured, bumbling dad and husband to Harriet, the family s saving grace who combines common sense with a great love of fun. What a family!

Bonus Features

* 12 Ricky Nelson performances including: Fools Rush In , Hello Mary Lou, Young Emotions,
That's All, Stood Up, Just Because, Waiting In School, I'm Confessin', Boppin' The Blues,
Fire Breathing Dragon, Right By My Side, You'll Never Know What You're Missing .

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Worth The Purchase Price July 14, 2008
By baron67
For old - or new fans (like me) of the "Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet," this boxed set is a welcome change from the countless cheap DVDs with the same 10 or 12 episodes we've been subjected to over the past decade or so.

First, there are quite a few more "never before available on DVD" episodes on this set than on the first. Granted, there are a few that are already out there, but the sound and picture quality on this set is vastly improved from anything released so far.

I, like many others would like to have the series released like just about every other TV series has been - by SEASON. I can't tell you why this hasn't been done . . .

Shout! has done a good job on the digital transfer - but I would much rather see every UNCUT episode from season 1 to season 14. I hope this isn't a trend where a company will release "favorite episodes" for years and then come out with the "complete set" after the fans have spent hundreds of dollars on previous boxed sets.

There were 435 "Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet" episodes aired. Some were great, some okay, and some were not exactly life-changing experiences, but they all deserve to be seen by the fans!
Whatever it takes - let the public see episode 1/1 to 14/24 . . . PLEASE!

Until we see each season represented on DVD, do not hesitate to buy this set. The prints are good, the audio is good, and Rick sings some of his best (if under-rated) songs of his early career. Overall, a solid B for content - and an A- for the visual and audio aspects.

This was the second excellent DVD box-set from the Shout Factory on The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet, with many wonderful and heart-warming bonus features including some of Ricky's songs. Sure was great, every bit of it - and the video quality was wonderful. This is the type of product that serves to enhance America's image as these episodes are a sheer delight and comforting to watch - as are listenting to the few older radio (pre-TV episodes) shows included.

I love the endings on some of these video shows where Ozzie has Ricky or someone in the family look directly into the camera and provide some cute response appropriate to the episode. Always puts a smile on my face and makes me laugh. Too precious.

Maybe someday, all 435 episodes that were filmed will be officially released by the Nelson family; sure would be nice to have a complete official set. Anyway, please keep these coming if possible, and avoid the bootleg copies as they are inappropriate and a disservice to the contributions of the Nelson family.

And thanks to the Nelsons for all the hard work and time in putting these DVDs together for release.

4.0 out of 5 stars Missing one song from an episode!! August 1, 2011
Verified Purchase
In the episode "The Man Without A Family", Rick Nelson sings the song "Be-Bop Baby" which was his 1st Billbord hit on his lengthy stay on the Imperial record label. I do not understand why the song was not included here. I personally do not like the syndicated versions although they are more visually watchable. Critics Choice Video did a good job of presenting Ozzie and Harriet episodes in prestine quality (with original commercials as well)...there are 3 volumes of that collection available. This Shout Factory collection is great for other reasons: the extra features as well as the other rare songs from Rick and alternate versions of "Right By My Side" and "Young Emotions". A great set!!
