Our message board is mentioned in the interview (Thanks Eric!!) with Tony Dow!

We really recommend you to listen to these interviews and every other interview this cool website does. So, listen to Tony and Alan in episode 9, by clicking here. And you can view past interviews, like Harry Anderson and James Noble, in the reruns section.

Series Summary:

Leave it to Beaver cast

This family comedy focused on life through the eyes of a young boy. Beaver Cleaver was 7 when the series began, and his brother Wally, 12. Beaver was a typically rambunctious youth, more interested in pet frogs than in girls, but Wally, just entering his teens, was beginning to discover other things in life. The counterpoint between the two, plus some good writing and acting, lent the series its charm. The boys' parents, June and Ward Cleaver were one of those nice, middle-class couples so often seen in this kind of program. Larry, Whitey, and Gilbert (among others) were Beaver's pals. Eddie and Lumpy were Wally's buddies. Eddie was one of the more memorable characters, unctuous and oily to adults ("Good evening, Mr. and Mrs. Cleaver"), but a bully to little kids--a thoroughgoing rat. Miss Canfield and Miss Landers were Beaver's school teachers. The locale was the suburban town of Mayfield where Ward worked for Mr. Rutherford (Lumpy's father) as an accountant.

As the years passed and Beaver got older, the stories naturally moved away from the little-boy premise until, in the final season, Beaver was about to enter his teens and Wally was ready for college.

In 1987, in the midst of a Leave It to Beaver revival, the original 1957 pilot for the series surfaced, containing a somewhat different cast than most people remembered. Billingsley and Mathers were there, but Ward Cleaver was played by Casey Adams, Wally by Paul Sullivan, and "Frankie"--the Eddie Haskell-type character-by Harry Shearer, who years later would become a regular on Saturday Night Live. For the further adventures of the Cleaver clan in the '80s, see The New Leave It to Beaver.

Series summary from The Complete Directory to Prime Time Network and Cable TV Shows: 1946-Present


Did You Know?

The address of the first house the Cleavers owned in Mayfield was 485 Mapleton Drive. The address of their second home was 211 Pine Street.

Beaver's elementary school was Grant Ave. Elementary School.

The reason Theodore Cleaver was nicknamed "Beaver" was that his brother, Wally, when he was little, could not pronounce "Theodore."

Produced by Gomalco Productions (1957-61) and Kayro Productions (1961-63) in association with Revue Productions. Produced at Republic Studios (1957-59) and Universal-International Studios (1959-63). Originally syndicated by MCA-TV, more recently by Program Exchange.

The house that was used for the exterior shots of the Cleavers' house was later used for the exterior shots of Marcus Welby's house in "Marcus Welby, M. D." (1969)

This show made its debut on the same day the Soviets launched Sputnik (4 October 1957)

In the pilot episode, the part of Eddie Haskell was played by a young Harry Shearer.

Leave it to Beaver (1997 movie)

Leave it to Beaver (1997 movie)

Cute family comedy based on the vintage TV series, with Finley an appealing Theodore Cleaver, for whom things never seem to go quite right... especially when he volunteers to play football in order to please his dad. Brother Wally (who experiences his first taste of puppy love) and unctuous Eddie Haskell are here, too. Billingsley, Osmond, and Bank (June, Eddie, and Lumpy from the original show) make token appearances.

The World According to Beaver

The World According to Beaver

The highest compliment I can give a book is that it made me laugh out loud, and this book did frequently. If you're a "Beav" fan, you've got to read this. The book is neatly divided into quotes, biographies and a synopsis of all episodes (including the "soup cup/billboard" episode-my personal favorite). There's even life according to Eddie Haskell. Buy it but be prepared to sneak peeks at it when you should be doing something more "adult-like".
