    I found 147 episodes offered as a channel on Roku, they go back to 1952! I was too young to know what they were doing in the early years but I remember them. Of course, they were around for long time.

    I remember watching their shows, right from the beginning in 1952. Weren't they just the perfect, sweet family?:)
    Enjoyed Ricky, and his music too. I did forget about his sons though, and their band.

    @Bonnie Thomas , yes they were SO perfect and sweet, even when they argued, they were sweet. I loved them. They lasted for 14 years!

    I absolutely love these old shows... but this is one that was before my time. I've seen (and enjoyed!) the reruns, though...

    These black and white shows make me nostalgic for a time period that I wasn't even part of... and in the late 50s, I was just a baby, so no reason for that feeling... it's always been a mystery to me. Maybe we're connected to our mothers more strongly than we realize... I don't know, but I know SHE enjoyed the decade. :)

    The Nelsons were on TV until the mid 60's

    I didn't watch TV until probably '66. Certainly not in the 50s :) and I'm pretty sure not until around the time when my baby brother was born. Edited to say that I just looked this up to see how much I missed it by, and it actually ran until March '66! I wonder why I don't remember it? Other ones I remember, though. :D
