    I like movies that are aware of what they are selling... without [any] greater aspirations than to make people laugh and that's it.

    If the ambition is to provide two hours of instantly forgettable, popcorn-munching escapism, it succeeds.

    It's the kind of movie you'll want to see a second time with someone who hasn't seen it yet, to remember what it was like to watch it for the first time.

    The whole show here is the parents, Hugh "Cool Dude" Beaumont and Barbara "Hot Chick" Billingsley.Those two goofy little boys need to go swimming in the river and get caught in the propeller of the nearest speedboat. And that goes for all their reject friends that they keep inviting over to the house. Ward should have forbid them to enter the premises. I'd like to be the next door neighbor so when Ward was out of town, I could come over and spend some quality time with June. This was a very clean show and I have always thought of it as such and with the highest respect........ I wonder if Barbara wore panties?

    This show was consistently funny until *gasp* the kids got older and somehow they lost their funny bones. The true death knell for any show- puberty! Aside from that, Jerry Mathers was a very talented little kid that seems to have bypassed the "Diffrent Strokes" curse of many a child star. While Ward and June were a little plastic, the Beav and his friends, especially Lumpy and Judy were always a hoot to watch. This was one show that got it right when it came to kids. They acted and did things that kids do. They weren't perfect like "The Brady Bunch" yet they weren't bad either. Just normal kids doing kid things which led to hysterical results. A comedy that still holds up today.

    Leave it to beaver is remarkable. i still wonder why people never make clean humored shows like this. all it is on TV nowadays is sexual jokes and just plain old B.A.D.Theodore "beaver" cleaver is the average American boy. he likes baseball, he has an older brother, and he's got friends who are total dummies. and he's always doing something, and learning something at the same time, with a little humor and funny comments you only find in readers digest.when i heard of this show at first, i thought it was a normal show, but when i saw it for the first time last summer, i thought it was hilarious! if you remember the show from the 50's and 60's, NowTV has it at 6:30 every weekday. if you haven't seen it, you should. then you'll know what a real family show is.this is a 10/10, dude

    During a recent TVLand "Top 10 Characters You Love To Hate" special, a well-known (under 40) female actress was quoted as saying that she believed sneaky Eddie Haskell to be the only character in the show that she remembered for resembling "a real person".Though I'll agree that Ward and June might come across at times as being unrealistically conservative (for example, their sitting at home in their Sunday best for no reason) her comment was something I found hard to understand, since, Beaver was known to be the first show of it's kind to explore such teen issues as, alcoholism, divorce, and troubled teens.It seems that many viewers also do not understand the significance of Ward's frequent reference (often shown as his sad remembrance) to his own harsh encounters with his strict Father, who made a point of "taking him out to the woodshed" to let Ward know "just what his Father meant", and how Ward, as a Father himself, deciding that he would not do the same when teaching his own sons right from wrong.While the conservative side of the show might be a bit too much for some, in the end there is nothing wrong with that behavior either - it's a far better lifestyle than what we see in today's world, where parents sometimes see their children as a liability rather than a blessing.Those who regularly watch Beaver know that while the corn does sometimes grow high in Mayfield, the trueness of the show's stories is what makes Beaver the timeless show that many still enjoy almost a half century after it's debut.
