Default No bad episodes

I love all the Leave it to Beaver episodes. How bad is that you have to turn to antenna tv even though you are paying Directv for service!?

Agree 100% ! One of my favorite scenes!

Yeah, I always looked forward to the episodes where Eddie was featured because he always had the best lines. I love when he's talking to June and Ward about working for the fishing fleet in Alaska and saying how he wants to write about his experiences on the boat like Charles Dana who had a point named after him. Entering college with a book on the best seller list would really give me an in with my English prof. The look on Ward's face is priceless. "Well remember Starboard right and port left." Oh yes Mr. Cleaver I forgot you worked for such a nautical outfit."

I'm surprised that Rory continued to act on LITB episodes if Rusty was no longer there since they both had the same "stage" mother. I wish Rusty would have written about his life as Larry but since he tried to forget all about it I guess that will never happen. Either way he was my third favorite character after Ward and Eddie.

Here's a thread where Torgo hits Beaver the Bunny in 2010 (right on!) (post 11), and a moderator insists there is no bad episodes of LITB!

I also agree with your post 12...I really think Captain Drake (I called him captain Bligh in another thread) made that episode. Eddie: "What do I do if I get seasick?" Drake: "Don't worry...you'll do it."

I'd say there's a larger selection of favorite episodes for me than least favorite. I certainly like them all, especially compared to many current shows. However, I'd probably name either "Chuckie's New Shoes" or "Beaver's Rat" among my least watched.

Been ages since I've watched it. I'll probably pop it in again sometime. I tend to watch the 2nd, 5th and 6th seasons the most.

I was so young and innocent back then.

Evidently if you don't like a LITB episode, you should seek medical attention, you might have brain damage.

Another episode I'm not a fan of is Chuckie's New Shoes. Mainly because of how Wally is treated, he gets the brunt of the blame, when it was Chuckie's mom who didn't even ask Wally, just dumped her kid off on him, expecting him to take on full responsibility for buying her kid shoes, making it sound like her brat couldn't go to school on Monday if he didn't get shoes.

I think June should have had Wally's back and told off Chuckie's obnoxious mom they way she was going to tell off Alma's mother that one time.

I have to agree that Beaver the Bunny and Chuckie's New Shoes should never have been put on celluloid. Did they use celluloid in those days?

I'm surprised that no one has even mentioned "The Pipe" episode from Season 2. I truly think that "The Pipe" is the worst Leave It To Beaver episode of all time simply because smoking is the worst thing that a kid can do.

Started watching from the 1st episode. Up to middle 3rd season. I have quite a few rated 4*, but my only 3* episode so far is S2 E36 "Forgotten Party". Poorly written. Makes no sense. Zero logic. Party giver mother, and her loopy son are horrendously bad.
