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!

22/25. Started watching it during the original run and it's still one of my top 5 all-time favorite shows.

I'm embarrassed. I got 2 wrong. If there was any show I know about is "Beaver". I missed the food sponsor question and Eddie's favorite TV show. I don't remember Eddie ever saying his favorite show was Woody Woodpecker, and I own each season on DVD. And to the late Ken Osmond...R.I.P, pal.
Vee frenchman71 12 months ago
I got the same two wrong. Love the show - watching it now!

I love June and Ward. They have a wonderful relationship, with lots of humor.

Ward was the coolest TV dad. He rocked!!!
robert frenchman71 12 months ago
actually he was way too strict.
frenchman71 robert 12 months ago
Actually, I think Ward meted out just the right amount of discipline. You want your kids to learn a lesson. Take Larry Mondello's dad. Larry was always complaining how much his dad hits him yet he still got in a lot of trouble with Beaver.

Parents today could learn a lot from parents like Ward Cleaver

I love and miss the slang and great terms in the '50s and '60s that I also remembered as the Beaver, Wally, and Eddie verbalized regularly, such as "guy", "man", "flip, "ape", "little goof" (to the Beaver, usually), and so many others that are sadly no longer in style. Not to mention the wonderfully low prices of things as a milk shake (30 cents), or gasoline (22 cents/gallon), and other things when the dollar was convertible into gold, or the coinage was made of real 90% silver, instead of non-precious, base-metal copper, zinc or aluminum. That era ended starting in 1965 (Mar. 8, with regular armies and Marines landing), to finance a horrid war in some far-away, third-world country over the next 8 deadly years.

#6, 21, and 23. Did not know the pilot's sponsoring food company (Heinz 57), or the movie reboot in the '90s, or Eddie's allergy food (Mayonnaise) in "The Perfect Father" episode. I guessed tomatoes. Otherwise, the other 22 were easy for those who were big fans of the classic child-teen oriented series that was so accurate as to the troubles kids routinely could get into in those halcyon days!
