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!

Watch Leave It to Beaver on MeTV!

Weekdays at 8:00 AM & 8:30 AM

Beaver and Wally had some sketchy friends like Larry, Gilbert, Lumpy and Eddie who were always setting up the boys for trouble.

I love anything to do with Leave it to Beaver! This is still my number 1 show! One of my hobbies is collecting autographs, and I have 8x10 signed photos from: Hugh Beaumont, Barbara Billingsley, Tony Dow, Jerry Mathers, Rusty Stevens, and Ken Osmond! (By the way, Ken signed my photo in March of 2020, and very sadly left us on May 18th, so I feel very blessed to have it now.) I love Beaver trivia of any kind, and also collect Beaver memorabilia too! I would love to hear from other Beaver fans anytime!!

Awesome! I thought I was really into The Beav - I'm a rookie 😉
Hi David, Maybe you can help. In "Uncle Billys Visit", 6th season, episode 26, at the end
the Cleavers are bidding Ward's(Hugh Beaumont) uncle adieu from the front lawn.
Uncle Billy(Edgar Buchanan) calls out as he leaves, "So long Hugh." Instead of "Ward".
As the series was ending anyway, do you think this is a wink to the audience?
I played the scene back many times, it sure sounds like "Hugh".

11 out of 11 !! Watching since I was five. My wish has always been to have my picture taken with Wally, Beaver, and Eddie. Too late now...was so sad to hear about Ken Osmond’s passing.

11/11 Probably the easiest quiz (for us great fans of LITB) I'll ever see on MeTV! A sad note on #10, Diane Brewster ("Miss Canfield" 5 episodes), who lived to be only 60 (Mar. 1931 - Nov. 1991) due to heart failure. Not pictured was Sue Randall ("Miss Alice Landers" 28 episodes), 1958-62, the other teacher. She died even younger, only 49 (Oct. 1935 - Oct. 1984) from cancer. Both were wonderful in their acting teacher jobs, especially Sue Randall who looked more like a real teacher than Diane Brewster's portrayal that first year, 1957-58. They are sorely missed from LITB as are most recently Ken Osmond ("Eddie Haskell"), at 76 on May 18 (2020), and the two wonderful parents Hugh Beaumont ("Ward"), Feb. 1909 - May 1982, at 72 and Barbara Billingsley ("June"), Dec. 2015 - Oct. 2010, at 94.
Diane Brewster also made memorable appearances on "Maverick" (Sat mornings, 9am CT), where she befuddled, charmed, and sometimes conned Bret and Bart Maverick as Samantha Crawford. Trivia: Writer/producer and "Maverick" series creator Roy Huggins had given her character his mother's maiden name! Fun stuff to tease or trick your friends and family!

11/11.
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.
