Can you recall all the car trouble in the Cleaver household?

Who broke the headlight? Who broke the window?


They are part of the American Dream, every teenager's most-wanted material possession and sometimes, the most stressful possession in the household. Of course we're talking about the car! American suburbia in the '50s and '60s couldn't be complete without the car in the driveway, and that was no exception at the Cleaver residence.

The Cleavers had plenty of, we'll call it, memorable incidents with cars throughout Leave It to Beaver's six seasons. From Wally and the Beaver building their own car, to causing trouble for their father in his car, there was no shortage of car trouble in the Cleaver house. 

Even if it wasn't totally their fault, whenever Wally and Beaver were around a vehicle, one way or another, trouble seemed to gang up on them. 

How well do you remember Leave It to Beaver's car-oriented episodes? Take our quiz and find out!

13 for 14.
# 14 is wrong - "They tie Lumpy's car around a tree".
Just how do you tie a car around a tree unless Superman is helping?
Wally and Eddie had tied a chain around a tree and attached it to Lumpy's rear axle.
Which was yanked off when Lump got in and started driving away.

You’re a good sleuth to catch that one. His dad wasn’t too happy when he found out what he did to Wally and Eddie. That’s a classic!

This isn't your personal refrigerator door to post on.
Family photos - that you posted elsewhere - of people none of us know, what's the point?
This place is dedicated to Classic TV, we shouldn't be held hostage to your latest whim,
such as that terrible insult to the Americans who died on 911 that you put up.
You know, your weird composite of the new World Trade Center that insulted the memory of
the innocents that died on 911, and clearly indicated it should happen again by your idea
of a wrathful God.
MeTV Board monitors, that 911 post is at best in bad taste, at worst a cruel, mocking
insult to the people that died that day.
I saw it happen, and I am angry, I can't understand your indulgence of leebillyold.
What's next, he is allowed to mock the sailors lying dead in the USS Arizona
on Pearl Harbor Day?
