Coming to DVD: Ozzie & Harriet: Best of Ricky and Dave

Last year saw the release of a beautifully produced DVD set, THE BEST OF THE ADVENTURES OF OZZIE & HARRIET. It contained 24 of the best episodes of the long-running series.

Although I generally prefer full season sets, I thought the "best of" concept worked well for OZZIE & HARRIET, although the jumps in David and Ricky's age were a bit disconcerting at times as we moved through the episodes. Our kids have loved watching these shows with us. The extras, produced in cooperation with David Nelson, were outstanding, including home movies, commentaries, and a radio show.

Good news today is that a second volume will be released on July 8th: THE ADVENTURES OF OZZIE & HARRIET: BEST OF RICKY AND DAVE. Like the first set, it will cherry-pick two dozen more of the show's best episodes. The extras include radio shows, a trivia game, and a "Ricky Sings" feature allowing viewers to watch only his performances.

Looks like more good old-fashioned family viewing fun ahead.
