1 Funniest (and filthiest) inadvertent line from this 50's - 60's iconic show: "You go ahead without me June, I'll stay here and pack the boys' fudge." Referring to a school bake sale. -- Submitted By: (spacer) on October 15, 2014, 8:33 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote

3 "Gee Dad, guess I never thought of it like that before!" Uhh, maybe if you'd stop believing everything people (who don't even like you) tell you, then you wouldn't be in this same predicament every week Beaver. -- Submitted By: (King) on August 22, 2014, 4:44 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
4 This actually passed for good TV back in the day? Wow. Unrealistic, sappy, dopey, very white and this town they lived in, Mayfield, was it in the Twilight Zone? Where are all the ethnic people? Where are the poor people? The old man was always reading the paper and watching the news but everything was all Skittles and Care Bears! Where was the Cold War? The McCarthy Hearings? Race riots? It's not natural for brothers to get along like Wally and the Beav. I grew up in the same room as my older brother and not a week went by that we weren't trying to kill each other! We would occasionally have fun but our main pastime was plotting each other's murder. Now that's a realistic pair of brothers! Aside from the unreality of the show, the writing was awful. Who cares if a 6-year old makes friends with a fireman? I really don't understand those people who claim this is the best TV had to offer back in the Not So Golden Age of TV! -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on August 4, 2014, 3:06 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 About the 600th time Beaver proudly stated the lie, "Well gee Dad, I sure learned my lesson!" then turns around and does some dumb shit again next week. I actually think LITB is a classic show. But I also have to be honest abd say, how many times can somebody possibly fall for the same shit over and over again? And why would you continue to listen to Eddie Haskell? Beaver ventured past the point of Gullible Land and went straight into Dumbass Avenue. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on April 25, 2014, 12:35 am - (5 votes) - Login to Vote
6 Classic example of a show staying on the air far too long. Wally and The Beav morphed into ugly apes after several seasons. They went from adorable children to smart-alecky teens with acne and in Wally's case, either thyroid or steroid problems. Honestly, he went from a skinny kid to a hulk sized freak in just a couple of years. My grandmom swears she never vacuumed in high heels and a pearl necklace and my grandad said he never lounged around after work with a tie and sweater, just his boxers and a cold Bud! So much for early 60's reality. I did get a kick out of one show I saw, June lugged in several very large bags of groceries and handed the cash register tape to Ward, it was about three feet long. June and the boys unpacked and you could see a whole ham, steaks, ground beef, all sortas of yummy food including what looked like a ten pound wheel of cheddar and gallons of ice cream. Ward shrieks, "6 dollars and 75 cents! I'm not made of money, you know, June!" I wonder what their mortage payment was on the big olf two story house, $25? -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on April 4, 2013, 3:39 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
7 I know she was middle aged when the show started over 50 years ago and one couldn't expect her to live forever but I have to admit that it's been sad to learn the Barbara Billingsley 'June Cleaver' has passed away at 94. I can't imagine how the show could have been any good without her contributions and even though it wasn't meant to be funny, seeing her always looking so pristine despite doing major housework was funny! 94 was a good age to reach and I'm glad she's no longer suffering but I feel bad for her family and colleagues. RIP, Miss Billingsley. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 18, 2010, 7:57 pm - (9 votes) - Login to Vote
8 Thanks Stephanie! Glad to see I'm not alone! Since I posted that, we've now seen rallies in favor of ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS! The insanity just never ends! -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on May 3, 2010, 2:07 am - (4 votes) - Login to Vote
9 DolFan, you nailed it! "Kinda reminds me of most of the American population today." How true, how true! -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on April 18, 2010, 1:24 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
10 I never watched this show much, but when I did, I had always thought the same thing. Sure, maybe once or twice, you could get duped into something, but not every friggin time! -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on April 15, 2010, 11:09 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
11 The Beaver really was a complete sheep, wasn't he? He could be (and was) misled, duped, fooled, tricked, hoodwinked and bamboozled by pretty much everybody else on the show! Kinda reminds me of most of the American population today. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on April 14, 2010, 11:03 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
12 I loved the show dearly. As he grew older, the cute "innocence" of Beaver was replaced by a growing boy who knew right from wrong but continued to get in trouble. Example..letting Gilbert Bates talk him into making a face while having their class picture taken. Gilbert proposed that they would both do it jointly knowing good and gosh darned well that he himself had no intention of participating in such a stunt. After the photo is taken Gilbert stands there with a silly looking grin on his face, prompting Beaver to ask what was so funny. Gilbert's reply? "You'll see.." along with what suddenly turned into a now evil looking grin on his kisser. It amazed me how naive Beaver was to the suggestions of his so-called friends like Gilbert, the always eating Larry Mondelo, and Whitey Whitney who talked to you as if your were deaf. They were a bunch of rat faced characters and Beaver was the perfect stooge for their follies! Still it was a great show for as long as it lasted. -- Submitted By: (MichaelJL) on April 13, 2010, 12:25 pm - (4 votes) - Login to Vote
13 One of two spots. Beaver giving a locket to a crummy old girl is one possibility. The other is the episode where Wally gets laid, titled "Eddie's Sweater." "Putting on" the sweater is a clear metaphore for "getting it on" with Cindy Adams, who never let Eddie get beyond second base. -- Submitted By: (HenryFletcher) on November 15, 2009, 8:51 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
14 Puberty just wasn't kind to The Beav' although it didn't help that they were still trying to write for his character as though he was still 6 years old. -- Submitted By: (TheAdamantiumElbow) on September 14, 2009, 8:09 am - (5 votes) - Login to Vote
15 This show was first launched into the airwaves on October 4,1957- the EXACT same day as the Soviet Sputnik satellite! I wonder if Ward ever thought Beaver somehow was responsible? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 6, 2009, 5:37 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
16 Watching this show can actually be depressing when you think about how much better the America portrayed on this show was compared to the America of today. And it really wasn't *that* idealized for the time--this is pretty much the way suburban America really was back then. People had actual standards and everything. And now...(breaks down sobbing). -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on July 15, 2009, 4:42 pm - (7 votes) - Login to Vote
17 Show became awkward when Beaver reached puberty (I can't believe I wrote that). No longer the cute, mischevious little boy who got into good-natured trouble and who was then bailed out with a little fatherly advice from Hugh Beaumont, Jerry Mathers' (whom I met in 1996 when he was a judge at a Miss San Deigo beauty contest - he still looks the same) popularity (as well as the show's) declined precipitously. -- Submitted By: (GregEichelberger) on July 15, 2009, 1:06 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
18 This show boned when the teenaged Beaver was forced to perform in a school play wearing a ridiculous bunny outfit. All common sense seemed to go out the window on that one, unusual for a series that generally "kept it real". -- Submitted By: (LoyalPigeon) on April 28, 2009, 7:47 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
