You are welcome. I liked how they planted the seed of your spoiler in the earlier scene where Ozzie mentions the hole in his jacket pocket. Fun, well thought out stuff!
Ozzie: Harriet, have you seen my wallet?
Harriet: It's on the sink.
Ozzie: The sink! Who put my wallet on the sink?
Harriet: I did. I found it on the floor.

Are you referring to Shout? Is that the other company that he turned down? I was thinking he should team up with ClassFlix who are bringing the Blondie TV series to DVD.
If memory serves me correctly it was MPI that offered to work with him, but he wanted to go it alone. Huge mistake all the fans are paying for.

Gary “so bummed this series didn’t make it to remastered, season set release status” O. :(:(:(

Did June and Kris ever appear in an episode together or in the same scene? I think they did appear together in a family picnic scene in a Coca Cola commercial,
Yes, they did! The episode just aired this morning on Retro TV. It's called, "Dave, the Worrier" (Season 14 episode 12).They were kept apart throughout most of the episode, but were together in the same frame in the final scene.

Thanks a bunch, Ron!! In checking YouTube for that episode, I found a full B&W version and an edited color version. I also found another S14 with Kris and June, "The Sheik Of Araby". The uploader says Kris and June also appeared together in a new segment filmed for the Christmas rerun of "Busy Christmas", in 1964.

O.K., Christmas in July time. Here's the 1964 rerun of the 1956 episode "Busy Christmas", showing an added Rick singing segment with Kris and June "together" with Dave and the kids.

I don't know why that one did not post in the thread? Maybe I reached my video limit for the day.

Any way that "Busy Christmas" YouTube video lead me to and episode that Kris and June appear in, "Getting Together With The Boys". 1964.

So, after 7 years, how's that box set coming along, which I was criticized for doubting would ever happen?

Maybe it would be easier for them to release the OZZIE & HARRIET radio series.
There are only about 60 episodes floating around.
Hopefully Ozzie made recordings and those recordings are sitting in the Nelson vault somewhere.

Well then, if that's the case, then I don't blame him for abandoning the project. Who wants to spend time restoring a 60-year old TV show when you have a hot porn star girlfriend in bed?:dance::banana:
Just so long as people don't mind that that's where there kickstarter money was spent.

Radio Shows are generally public domain and no one seems to care about rights issues associated with there release. If there are still transcriptions, that's a good idea.

What did happen to this project? Did he make an official cancellation announcement, or did he just go radio silent on the whole thing?

It just kind of petered out over time is the short answer. The long one is somewhat more complicated. No impending releases to date, or anything in the foreseeable future, if at all, is the sad bottom line. :(

CHEERS! :)

That is sad and unfortunate. If that is the case and there definitely isn't going to be any release of this, I very sorry for everyone who looked forward to getting a copy, especially those who contributed money toward the project. Did Sam Nelson just spend hours working on this and then one day threw his hands in the air and said he can't finish what he started? I think if this is the situation, he should publicly admit there is not going to be any release and apologize to everyone who gave money for the project. I am wondering if some of the money actually went toward restoration of any episodes at all. I would hope he would be honest enough to explain to everyone what happened.

How is it not a scam? Can I announce I'm going to restore some old TV series and collect the money and never do anything? How can he get away with this?
