Default Incidental Music

Anyone notice sometimes they play music thatís apropos for a certain scene? The most obvious is Wallyís haircomb every time he walks in or touches it they play that jazzy music.

Does anyone notice other times we hear funny music?

When June opens Beaverís Parisian blouse they play what sounds like the French national anthem.

I notice at least three other times.

One you reminded me of in the other thread was the Eskimo sweater. I think they played some kind of tom tom thing.

(This reminds me--did MeTV skip the Next Door Indians episode? I don't remember seeing it.)

Did they play something kind of appropriate in Voodoo Magic?

That’s right I forgot about Voodoo Magic they play that tom-tom music like a witch doctor when Eddie thinks he’s really sick. Very funny. I thought of when Ward and June see Old Nick the horse you hear Taps played. Anymore?

This reminds me--did MeTV skip the Next Door Indians episode? I don't remember seeing it.) I remember seeing it on METV and the boys thinking how rich they’ll be with the garnets.

And of course in "The School Picture" there was the funny bit they played every time he made the funny face.

And I just thought of, in "Wally's Play," the cowboy music when Beaver and the other kid discovered Wally's costume.

Sometimes they play a bit of Chopin's Funeral March when something mournful occurs (I think the death of Beaver's pigeon might have been once instance).

There is bustling music that plays when June goes into action, like in "Wally's Hair Cut" when she goes over to the phone to call the principal.

I think they played that in Goodbye Beaver when he came into the classroom, after the kids found out he wasn't leaving.

Also they played Chopin Funeral Music when Beaver enters the classroom after playing hooky.

When Eddie moves to the boarding house they scan the room when Wally and Beaver visit and you hear “There’s no place like home.” Also in Chuckie’s Shoes at the end J and W apologize to Eddie for being rude. Eddie says he makes allowances for the way people are. You hear “na na na na na” like he got them back.

Just thought of my favorite:

The slow version of the main Leave It to Beaver theme, to accompany a "teaching moment."

They used it in "The Bank Account" where the family opens the package from the sporting goods store.

And they used a long version in "The Visiting Aunts" after Ward's lecture and Wally and Beaver are thinking the situation over.

The slow theme during a moral moment gradually disappeared during the third season. It was a nice touch early on.

I liked that slow version too of the theme. I can’t believe just how much music was played over the course of the show. I think they play some really poignant music when Beaver knows Poncho will be leaving soon and cuddles with him in his room. Wonder if they played any scene setting music when they smoke that pipe. I like that bustling music almost like it’s June’s music except in Pet Fair when Beaver sits in his room obsessing over his lie about a parrot.
