1957: “Leave it to Beaver” made its TV debut

Leave it to Beaver“, one of my all time favorite shows, made its debut today in 1957.    

The show had four characters that everyone could love:  Dad Ward Cleaver, Mom June Cleaver, Wally and Beaver.    And let’s not forget Eddie Haskell, who probably drove every mother crazy!

The show lasted until 1963 so I did not see it until we got to the US in 1964.   Like many, I saw it in reruns.    

It is just a fun show with no deep meanings or messages about this or that.    Just a kid growing up with a responsible dad, loving mom and older brother.    In fact, I think that the show’s success is that so many of us see our family in those characters.

By the way, I voted Mrs Cleaver as my favorite TV mom a few years ago.
