Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Bill Pearis
Life in the '50s was simpler and more wholesome, at least as depicted in the period’s television programs. Some might contend that those shows whitewashed any underlying social issues of the day (Red Scare, anyone?), but it would be churlish to chide Leave It to Beaver for failing to delve into, say, the burgeoning civil rights movement. When seen from the perspective of an eight-year-old boy, the world barely exists beyond the streets of his neighborhood. The youngster in this case is Theodore "Beaver" Cleaver (Jerry Mathers), a cute if not particularly bright kid who lives with his older brother, Wally (Tony Dow), and loving parents (Hugh Beaumont and Barbara Billingsley) in the anytown of Mayfield. Unfortunately, Wally and the Beav didn't have the best of influences for friends, especially Eddie Haskell (Ken Osmond), a teenage huckster who had an angle on everything. Beaver's best friend, Larry Mondello (Rusty Stevens), got him into a fair bit of trouble, too. Creators Joe Connelly and Bob Mosher drew on real-life experiences with their own kids for many of the story lines, and the situations Beaver and Larry found themselves in -- confronted by bullies, losing money for a haircut, forced to wear short pants by a visiting aunt -- still resonate today, which is certainly the key to show's continued appeal.
