How well do you know these Leave It to Beaver sports situations?

Will you knock this quiz out of the park?

Wally Cleaver, played by Tony Dow, will always be remembered as the classic All-American boy. He embodied the suburban teenage lifestyle for the time by balancing school, a younger sibling, growing pains and athletics.

Wally’s character was well-rounded and Leave It to Beaver didn’t hesitate to shine a light on his sports-related achievements, referencing his scoring in football and basketball or out-running the competition on the track. He even tried his hand at coaching! 

Beaver didn't hesitate to take a swing or put on a helmet either. 

Where Wally and the Beaver went, some form of trouble was certainly going to follow, and there was no exception when it came to sports. 

Whether in the driveway, field or on the court, can you answer these sports-related questions from Leave It to Beaver? 

Don't fumble your answers!

Leave it to Beaver was such a gentle, well written comedy. Nothing like much of the slapstick or similar of the era. Even the Andy Griffith Show, which certainly had some gentle to it, never would have been as funny without Don Knotts who, funny as he was, was a bit slapstick. Leave it to Beaver was and still is a really an under-rated show and, IHMO really stands up better than most comedies from that era.

SOMEBODY doesn't know how to write the possessive form of plurals in English.

It's CLEAVERS' and DENNISONS', not "cleaver's" and "Dennison's."

HOW do such people find employment writing this kind of thing, or anything?

Easy does it... Ward Cleaver would not be pleased.

I think he/she/it secretly works for MeTV, and comes back to correct grammar, punctuation, etc.... mistakes. As if anyone cares.

10 of 12. Not bad. The saddest sports related episode was when Ward's autographed ball got run over in the street.

Actually Ward seemed to be a pretty good athlete himself. I guess June would’ve had to demonstrate her athleticism in heels and pearls. 😆
NickG Wendy57 5 days ago
LOL. Isn’t it once mentioned she played girls basketball in school?
Wendy57 NickG 4 days ago
Maybe ? Not sure. You might be right though. She was tall.
