Barney's new car--a classic. Ellen Corby--she can play virtually any part and do a convincing job. From a car thief to Grandma Walton and anything in between.

Probably the only character actress of the era who wasn't on LITB (well, one of the few...)

Would have loved to have had Ellen on LITB. She could have played Miss Cooper in the Haunted House. She was a fine actress and love how she said “That’s the clunker I sold to that boob in Mayberry.” She was in Dennis the Menace too. Loved her in The Rifleman.

She would have done well as Aunt Martha. She could have done one timers, like the lady who gave Beaver the bad check for the mowing, or the one who was claiming the lost wallet, or the lady who was with Aunt Martha, Mrs. Hathaway instead of Mrs. Elkins (Irene Tedrow.)

I didn't know she was in DTM. Wikipedia says she was Miss Douglas, but I don't place the role or the episode.

One of my favorite roles in DTM is Alice Pearce playing another spinster, who battles for men with Miss Cathcart (Mary Wickes is good, too.)

Ellen Corby was in the episode when Mr. Wilson gets an old radio in an auction and gives it to Dennis. Inside is a lot of bills but forget how much. People try to claim the money but it winds up being the property of Ellen Corby. It could be another episode when Ellen wins a new car and gives Dennis her old vintage electric car.

Love Miss Cathcart hungry for any man and Gladys Kravitz. Saw Irene Tedrow in a small part in Empire of the Ants, 70’s B movie. B for beastly.

DTM hd a large cast of adults, who kept the show fresh. Mary Wickes, Charles Lane, the character actor who played Brady (and his equally annoying son), Tedrow, the guy who played Sgt. Mooney, and several others.

Ellen Corby was doing quite a few western TV guest roles in those years, including Bonanza which offered a rare look at her in color (when very few series were not b/w).

Among DTM guest actors, in addition to Charles Lane, the actor who played Sgt. Mooney also jumped over to the first season of Petticoat Junction.

That made me think of Ellen's appearance in the two 'haunted house' movies The Ghost And Mr Chicken and The Bowery Boys Meet The Monsters (in this one she is always trying to feed one of the Bowery Boys to her man eating plant)

I can't find that thread where we were talking about stuff Wally was always asking to do. In today's Bootsie episode he asked June (as she told it) whether he could be a Forest Ranger.

I’ll add that to the list. In an episode when June is washing the kitchen windows, Wally asks June if he can take a cross country bus tour this summer. I believe Beaver wound up doing that.

Yeah I think that was recent. I remember thinking, that comes later, and it's Beaver.

In a recent episode (probably the one where Beaver didn't want a babysitter), June was talking to Wally, probably worrying about leaving him alone (I don't blame June, with the trouble he gets into!). Wally said something about him calling Berlin. I thought, it was L.A. and Don Drysdale, and that comes later, too.

I missed that about calling Berlin. Once Wally was listening to his transistor radio and says every so often they play news. That’s how Lumpy found out about Cuba.

There was one time; in the fifth or sixth season I think, in which something happen, but Ward nor June found out. They suspected something but they didn't try to find out what it was; June found out either they were out of bleach or carpet cleaner, and Ward simply stated whatever the problem had been, it was fixed and they were better off not finding out about it. I know that's very vague but those details are the only thing I can remember.

I think the title of the episode was "Beaver's Laundry", but it was really Richard's Laundry, a fifth season episode. Beaver helped Richard do his family's laundry in the Cleavers' washer, since Richard lost his money to do it at the laundromat. They used too much detergent, and the machine overflowed into the kitchen. The boys cleaned it up, and Ward and June came home later and complimented the boys on cleaning the floor so well. Later yet, June remarked to Ward that the detergent was nearly gone, and she didn't think she had so little left. Ward said the clean floor probably had something to do with it, but he advised not to look further into it. As Wally said to Beaver later, they were just happy to have a clean floor. So, right, Ward didn't find out!
