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!

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.

Im really sick of mayberry. I miss my three sons.

Agreed. Mayberry RFD was a very weak spinoff. You can't do "Andy Griffith" without Don Knotts. And, Ken Berry = Wilton Parmenter.
