The very last episode of The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet broadcast in 1966 is called 'The Game Room.' The boys are now married and off living in their own homes. So Ozzie decides to convert their old bedroom into a game room with a billiard table. The humor in this episode comes from the fact that Harriet is a much better pool player than Ozzie happens to be!

It was a fun way to end the show's long run.

This is depicted in the films PUBLIC HERO # 1 (1935), its remake THE GET-AWAY (1941) and of course in DILLINGER (1945).

Things were a bit more formal back in those days.
