Chronology
Related shows The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet

Ozzie's Girls is an American sitcom spin-off of The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet, which was broadcast in first-run syndication, first, the pilot, as a "special" presentation on September 10, 1972,[1][2] and later, as a weekly series during the 1973-74 season. It picked up seven years after The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet had gone off the air.

Overview[edit]

The premise of the show was that after their sons David and Ricky had grown up and moved out, Ozzie and Harriet Nelson decide to rent their sons' old rooms to college students Susan Hamilton (Susan Sennett) and Brenda McKenzie (Brenda Sykes). Much of the humor stemmed from Ozzie and Harriet having to contend with girls' trials and dilemmas, after having raised two boys.

A total of 24 half-hour episodes were produced and aired before the series was canceled in 1974.
