Can you defeat this big Leave It to Beaver trivia quiz?

Gee whiz! Think you can pass this quiz?


It remains one of the most iconic sitcoms in television history. Still today "The Cleavers" remain the model of quaint suburban life. Gee, Wally, I wonder why? Probably because the characters on Leave It to Beaver were so charming.

The sitcom also made history. A primetime show that focused on kid characters was a novel idea in 1957. The show lasted six seasons and eventually led to a reunion and sequel series — The New Leave It to Beaver — in the 1980s.

Let's see how well you remember this all-American classic. Try to ace this pop quiz! Sorry, Miss Landers is not here to help you.

I missed 5, 6, 10, 12, and 15. I couldn't decide if June's maiden name was Gibson or Bronson. I thought the official title of the theme song was It's a small world, but ironically that was the title for the original pilot. I picked Dole Television Playhouse for the sponsor and I thought the Elementary School was named Jefferson Elementary School because I thought Beaver's school name was similar to Happy Days' Jefferson High School... I must be remembering it wrong.

20/25 I only answered The Sponsor feared the audience would think it was a nature program because it sounded funny, I didn't think it was serious!
