Here I am in a Halloween episode titled “Halloween Party” on the television program “The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet.” I filmed this before I was in Leave it to Beaver!
The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet is an American sitcom, airing on ABC from October 3, 1952, through April 23, 1966, starring the real-life Nelson family. After a long run on radio, the show was brought to television, where it continued its success, initially running simultaneously on radio and television. The series stars Ozzie Nelson and his wife, singer Harriet Nelson, and their young sons, David and Eric “Ricky” Nelson,

This brings back lots of memories! Who else in the parade do you remember?
