Who were the first married couple to sleep in the same bed of TV?

Trivia time

Bed
Sharing - Traditionally,
all married TV couples in the 1950s and early 1960s were required
sleep in separate (twin beds) to uphold moral codes of the times.
Many of the top couples of all time such as Rob and Laura Petrie,
and even Ward and June Cleaver never had the satisfaction of
knocking knees in the same bed in front of the American public.



The first TV program to show a husband and wife sharing the same
bed on a regular basis occurred in 1947 on the Dumont sitcom MARY
KAY AND JOHNNY. TV's first sitcom ever. The program told the tale of a newly married
couple living in Greenwich Village. Unfortunately, no copies of
the show exist so we must rely on the documented memories of
others to prove the point. Later in the 1950s Ozzie and Harriet
broke the taboo and were seen in the same bed.

While Lucy and
Ricky Ricardo on I LOVE LUCY definitely slept in separate beds,
their neighbors Fed and Ethel were actually the first on that show
to sleep together in the same bed (well sort of). It seems on the
January 17, 1955 episode "First Stop" Ethel and Fred try to
navigate their way through a sagging mattress and consequently are
seen squirming in bed together.

Another sitcom
couple who have linked with being the first to share a bed were
Darrin and Samantha Stephens, a witch and advertising executive
who lived at 1164 Morning Glory Circle Drive in Westport,
Connecticut on the prime time sitcom BEWITCHED/ABC/1964-72.

Florence Henderson
(a.k.a. Carol Brady) from THE BRADY BUNCH had claimed for
years that she and her TV husband Mike Brady (Robert Reed) were
the first couple to share a bed together, but through the
magic of reruns, her claims has been deposed. And, of course,
