A classic of classics family sit com. Who can forget the opening? Leave It to Beaver starring Hugh Beaumont ... Barbara Billingsley ... Tony Dow ... and Jerry Mathers as .. The Beaver. The mom and dad's names were of course, Ward and June and the older brother was Wally. lots of good stories and lesson to be learned for all. they tried to bring this back with the brothers as adults and it didn't work. In my opinion the reason it didnt work was poor writing. With better writers this show could have been teaching lessons and entertaining today's yought for years to come.
