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!

lumpy rutherford looked a little bit like lt. cmdr data of star trek next generation. Burt mustin was all over 1960s TV shows, the cartoon character Cecil turtle modeled after him, anyway the woke culture would cancel anything like this if made now gee wally just like Burt wards gosh Bruce of Batman.

11/11 One of the few METV quizzes I got 100 %. So sad to hear the news about Tony Dow.

Got ‘em all. Some I wasn’t sure until I saw the names. The one about his teacher’s name was tricky because he had teachers with two of the names (in different grades).

11/11. Easy peasy. They could have made it a little tougher by adding Beaver’s friends Richard or Gilbert in the quiz. Oh well, sad to hear about Tony Dow passing.

The show first aired within a few weeks of my birth in August 1957. I still watch it whenever I can, that connection is as strong as ever!

Piece of cake for LITB fans. So sorry to hear about Tony Dow’s passing this morning. In one of the tributes to Tony, it was mentioned he was everybody’s older brother. That is so true. I always liked the way Beaver would look up to Wally for advice or reassurance as only an older brother could. So long Tony, thanks for all the tv memories.

Tony reminded me of my older brothers growing up. They may have given me grief sometimes but they were always there to help and protect me.

Her name was HENSLER, and she was stuck-up b!tch--spoiled rotten!
And a tattletale, to boot!

She, like many actors, was probably the complete opposite in real life.

According to Jeri she was removed because she started to show womanhood.

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

I think Larry was the worst!!
Beaver was always such a 'sucker' and always gave in to Larry's bad advice. I guess Gilbert was just as bad...now that I think about it. Lol 🤣

Larry was much cooler than Gilbert. Gilbert was a plain weasel.
