Leave It to Beaver

Leave It to Beaver is an American television sitcom broadcast between 1957 and 1963 about an inquisitive and often naïve boy, Theodore "The Beaver" Cleaver (Jerry Mathers), and his adventures at home, school, and around his suburban neighborhood. The show also starred Barbara Billingsley and Hugh Beaumont as Beaver's parents, June and Ward Cleaver, and Tony Dow as Beaver's brother Wally. The show has attained an iconic status in the United States, with the Cleavers exemplifying the idealized suburban family of the mid-20th century.

  • Sponsors of "Leave It to Beaver" include General Electric Lightbulbs and Purina Dog Chow.
  • Barbara Billingsley told an interviewer in 2007 the reason she always wore pearls on camera is because of a small indentation just above her sternum that didn't photograph well.
  • Beaver's elementary school was Grant Ave. School, which was a grammar school, not an elementary school; meaning grades K-8.
  • The address of the first house the Cleavers owned in Mayfield was 485 Mapleton Drive, a reference to first season network CBS's then New York headquarters at 485 Madison Avenue. The address of their second home was 211 Pine Street.
  • Produced by Gomalco Productions (1957-61) and Kayro Productions (1961-63) in association with Revue Productions. Produced at Republic Studios (1957-59) and Universal-International Studios (1959-63). Originally syndicated by MCA-TV, more recently by Program Exchange.
