5 shows Tony Dow appeared on after Leave It to Beaver
Here are five shows where Dow wasn't called Wally.
Tony Dow might've had no idea that he'd be an actor before getting the role of Wally on Leave It to Beaver, but his success after the show proves elsewise — even if in later life he chose to work behind the camera on special effects and even became a respected sculptor.
We all remember him as the older brother to Beaver, and many generations after us will, too. Still, Dow made appearances on several television shows after Leave It to Beaver ended. Here are five of those appearances.
1. My Three Sons
In the episode "Guest in the House," Dow played Gilbert Thornbury, a young boy mistaken for a visitor Steve was expecting. Steve, who was out of town, asked Bub and the boys to take care of the visitor.
2. Knight Rider
Distributed by Universal Studios
In the episode "Nobody Does It Better," Dow played Julian Groves, the main suspect when computer software was stolen from Deltron Micronics.
3. General Hospital
Distributed by Cinema Vehicles/ Selmur Productions
Dow appeared in multiple epsiodes of the popular soap General Hospital.
In the episode "Log 69: Cigarettes, Cars, and Wild, Wild Women," Dow played Cpl. Wayne Miller. Reed and Malloy have to break up an auto theft ring, where they find women stealing cars and taking them to chop shops to resell the pieces.
5. Murder, She Wrote
Distributed by Universal Television
In the episode "Crossed Up," Dow played Gordon Rogers. Phone wires get crossed during a storm, and Jessica (Angela Lansbury) can't convince anyone that what she heard was a murder plot.
