TV Shows - New Leave It To Beaver, The

The New Leave It to Beaver (also known as Still the Beaver) is a 1984 American sitcom sequel to the 1950s and '60s series, Leave It to Beaver. The New Leave It To Beaver began with the 1983 CBS TV movie Still the Beaver, and was picked up in 1984 as a Disney Channel series with the same name; however, it only lasted one season. It was then picked up by TBS in 1986 and renamed The New Leave It to Beaver. The series, also syndicated in the late 1980s, lasted until 1989. It is one of the rare examples of a television series revival sequel (not spin-off) that revolves around the characters from the original series. Other examples of this would be The Brady Brides and What's Happening Now!! The series focused on Wally Cleaver (Tony Dow) and his younger brother, Theodore "Beaver" Cleaver (Jerry Mathers) all grown up, with families of their own. Theodore is divorced and living with his mother, the widowed June Cleaver (Barbara Billingsley), along with his two sons, Kip and Oliver. Wally lives next door with his wife and daughter Kelly and, later, son Kevin joins the brood. Other series regulars included Wally's old friend Eddie Haskell (Ken Osmond) and his family, along with "Lumpy" Rutherford (Frank Bank).

1 I watched a couple of episodes of this show back when it was airing- Sad to say I'll never get those minutes of my life back. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on March 8, 2012, 9:28 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

5 Having grown up on the classic original show, I decided to give its revival a chance. There were a few things that seemed a bit ajar- like Wally's wife Mary Ellen being pregnant with their second child for something like two years, then the baby being born before suddenly becoming four years old the next season (at least Andrew Keaton was carried a normal term by his mother)! Also, while I can't say it was a surprise that Eddie Haskell grew up to be a a bullying husband to his doormat wife, I didn't think that was very funny. Of course, it was supposed to be balanced out that he was a slightly better dad to his son who himself also happened to be Beaver's teen son's best friend but not quite as shady as his dad. Also, it seemed a bit amiss that the divorced Beaver was in no hurry to leave June's house- despite becoming rather successful going into the unspecified business with Lumpy. Yeah, I know it was good for his kids that June was around but couldn't they have had her live close by instead of in the same house? I'd say the BEST episode of the series had to do when June ran for a city counsel seat against Eddie and for the first (and only time) REALLY told him what she thought of him as a person instead of just giving him cool,unimpressed glares! Also, it was interesting that Wally's daughter seemed to get in as much mischief as her boy cousins (though NONE of them got into as much as the title character in his youth) but she proved to be a sterotypical preteen/teen mallrat. Mary Ellen and Wally didn't seem to have more to do than hover around their kids and glom on his past atheletic glory days in high school- despite them being well into middle age. And, there was little if any interaction with Beaver's ex with their sons nor did Beaver seem really interested in doing more than some occasional dating. Even though this lasted some four seasons, I don't think this will be cherished as much by the viewing public over the long haul as the original show! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 4, 2009, 11:40 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
