Can you name all these pals of Wally and Beaver from Leave It to Beaver?

The Cleavers sure had a lot of buddies!

Leave It to Beaver was originally called It's a Small World at one point in its development. The very idea of basing a primetime television show from the perspective of children was a novel idea in 1957.

Wally and Theodore Cleaver were hardly the only adolescents in the spotlight.

The idyllic sitcom featured a large cast of young actors to play classmates, best friends, rivals and crushes. Beaver had some elder pals, too.

Gee, let's see if you remember all these minor characters. Good luck!

I agree to an extent with the comments about Mayberry R.F.D. being a weak spinoff, though I've become reacquainted with my crush on Arlene Golonka.

The Three Stooges should be on in the morning. There's something just not right about it being on Saturday evening. Sorry.

Agreed. Mayberry RFD was a very weak spinoff. You can't do "Andy Griffith" without Don Knotts. And, Ken Berry = Wilton Parmenter.

11 out of 11. Love this show! Wish they'd have shown Miss Landers. I would've had a crush on her if she was my teacher.
