"You got 6 out of 8. Way to go! You made Daddy proud"

I am 99% sure Violet Rutherford is the only sibling Lumpy had. I think MeTV guys
might have erred on this one, I have no memory of another Rutherford kid on screen.

Pretty crummy.
I remember Lumpy’s father but not his mother. We must’ve seen her, but when ?

You can see his mom when they go on a picnic with the Cleavers...Fred takes a pic of Violet & Beaver......can't remember if Violet kisses him or not....poor Beaver.

Wasn't Violet the youngest daughter on Lost in Space and Make Room For Daddy?

Of course, ALMOST ace the quiz about the kid who just can’t seem to win. Although with Fred, as a father, what else could you expect? But his mother Gwen, seems actually nice.

7/8 I thought I knew LITB but I don't remember a 3rd Rutherford kid. Violet was played by two different
actresses but oh well.

He had a sister that at first, could never seem to get a date. And then they say she finally got married. In lobby, and violet, who was Beaver’s age.

6/8, Lumpy had two siblings? Who was the other? And he was 21 when he graduated High School? I'm throwing my red challenge flag on those two. If he was three years older than Wally, he would have been ineligible to play HS football. He probably would have not even been allowed to be in High School.

Same two I got wrong. Didn’t know about the second sibling.

They mentioned in a early episode he was 3 years older, I think the one where he makes
Beaver and Wally take a different route home from school. Lumpy was not portrayed
as Wally's pal then but as a nasty bully.
A year or so later, you can see a thick mat of chest hair sticking out the top of Frank
Bank's shirt, maybe in real life he was much older than the others.

6/8. I forgot Lumpy had an older brother that they mentioned once or twice. And I got the age difference wrong, but I think the producers didn't follow continuity there.

I love The Beaver my third favorite old show after Andy Griffith and Green Acres. I only missed one and that was number 6.
