The Cleavers are the 1950's 'All-American Family' in this 'feel-good' family sitcom. Parents Ward and June, and older brother Wally, try to keep Theodore ('the Beaver') out of trouble. However, Beaver continues to end up in one kind of jam or another. Unlike real life, these situations are always easily resolved to the satisfaction of all involved and the Beaver gets off with a few stern moralistic words of parental advice. Instigator and troublemaker Eddie Haskell is an older kid who always manages to avoid being caught. Written by

The town of Mayfield, like the Cleaver family and virtually all of their friends, was thoroughly Caucasian, a trend that was well-established in television at the time (but about to begin changing). Among the rare exceptions in the Beaver series were the Varela family, whose son Chuey (Alan Roberts Costello) was Beaver's friend, and, like his parents, spoke only Spanish (Chuey's father was a diplomat from an unspecified South American country); the episode was Leave It to Beaver: Beaver and Chuey (1958). Another exception, this one a bit more stereotyped (again, typical of the era) was the African-American maid (played by Kim Hamilton) at the Langley home during the wedding reception in Leave It to Beaver: The Parking Attendants (1963).

During season one, Wally was in 8th grade and Beaver was in 2nd - six years apart. By the end season six Beaver was finishing 8th grade and Wally was graduating high school - 4 years apart. See more »
Leave it to beaver is remarkable. i still wonder why people never make clean humored shows like this. all it is on TV nowadays is sexual jokes and just plain old B.A.D.
Theodore "beaver" cleaver is the average American boy. he likes baseball, he has an older brother, and he's got friends who are total dummies. and he's always doing something, and learning something at the same time, with a little humor and funny comments you only find in readers digest.
when i heard of this show at first, i thought it was a normal show, but when i saw it for the first time last summer, i thought it was hilarious! if you remember the show from the 50's and 60's, NowTV has it at 6:30 every weekday. if you haven't seen it, you should. then you'll know what a real family show is.
this is a 10/10, dude
