    As much as I love "Leave It to Beaver," I have a hard time watching Beaver as he gets older (toward the end of the series). The cute way he approached challenges when he was younger were hilarious; however, when he became a teenager he seemed to remain at the developmental stage of an 8 or 9 year old.

    I agree I think throughout the series they tried to keep the character the same and not let him grow-up too much which made him more annoying as he got older.

    Beaver was IMHO the loser compared to Wally, Wally was good in sports and Beaver was not for example. This carried over to the reunion movie in the early 80's Wally is married and successful and Beaver is divorced and jobless and has to move back home, he always seems to get the short end of the stick.
