"Gee, Wally, you got: 5 out of 10 Uh oh! Dad's home, and he's not going to like your score!"

They're making me repeat the year with Miss Landers. Hot dog! Hubba hubba.

4/1o..."Dad's home and he's not going to like your score!"

I don't remember my dad ever watching Leave It To Beaver or mentioning it. But I do remember sitting in the living room with him and watching Hogan's Heroes and Combat (yes, I agree, Combat was an interesting choice for a four-year-old/five-year-old child...).

A few of these questions have incorrect answers or have more than one correct answer. It was Alice Cooper who said he was Eddie Haskell in an interview but, what he meant was that he was the bad boy type Eddie Haskell was & not the nice guy type that Wally & Beaver were.

6/10. Even with a poor score it was a fun quiz.

I never heard the rumor about Ken Osmond being Alice Cooper, I always heard it was John Holmes the X rated star. Knew it wasn't true but that's the one I always heard. Hands down Eddie Haskell was my favorite character on the show.

That rumor was around so long that I think John Holmes started to believe it.

This is the first rumor about Osmond I read about, too.

7/10. I got the important ones: 1-6, and 8. Missed #7 on the tv years between them, but knew in real life only 3 years difference: Tony born in Apr. 1945, Jerry in June 1948. A sad day last July when Tony died at 77. Jerry will be 75 on June 2, born in Sioux City, Iowa. Started his career at age 2, as a model for a department store ad. His real birth name is Gerald. Jerry is a better name to go by than the more formal Gerald he needs to use, unless he legally changed it to Jerry.

Gee, sorry guys I got 4 of 10
Better luck next time! Watch the Beav on MEtv, and also on Family Entertainment (FeTV) if you get that network! Their episodes are still so much fun to watch and relate to, when older guys almost Jerry's age, grew up in those best years America enjoyed, 1957-63. M-F 10a-11a CT (11a-12noon ET), 2a-3a CT (3a-4a ET).

Same here…I thought I knew this show better.
They say I got 1 wrong. However, Tony Dow appeared on two soap operas. He was a regular on Never Too Young for one season and appeared in various episodes during one season of General Hospital. I chose General Hospital. METV needs to do its homework when it comes to quizzes. The ages of the characters also change at least once during the series run.

If anyone would like to check out my nearly 500 page book on Leave it to Beaver, I think y'all would love it.
Thank you. I knew something was off with a couple of these questions.
" METV needs to do its homework when it comes to quizzes."
Both Wikipedia and IMDb have Tony Dow as " Ross Jeanelle" on General Hospital, however both list as " unknown episodes", neither list how many episodes or how many seasons.

" and appeared in various episodes during "𝗼𝗻𝗲 𝘀𝗲𝗮𝘀𝗼𝗻" of General Hospital."
Do you know which episodes he was in and if it was within one season? Maybe you have information that Wikipedia and IMDb don't have. Just curious.
I saw an interview in which Tony Dow said he was in just one season. Can't remember where I saw that interview.
" Can't remember"
Well if you happen to remember, maybe share the interview if it's on Youtube or a link if it's not YT. Always interesting to see interviews both Tony Dow (had done), whether it was with his wife or Jerry Mathers.
I did create a YouTube channel named after my LITB book. On the channel, I have a playlist of all Tony Dow interviews I found. It must be in the following list somewhere. But if you love interviews, you'll be occupied with this playlist. I also have playlists on the channel with Jerry Matthers interviews and others. However, the interview I may have heard about General Hospital may have been an audio only interview he did with Stu Shostak, a TV historian. It's not available on Youtube.

* In final season when Wally graduated high school and beaver graduated 8th grade their ages were 4 years difference but in earlier seasons the age difference varied. * Beaver also had a crush on Miss Landers and was upset when she got engaged! * Although Jerry recorded a few pop tunes that failed to do well on the charts I praised the LITB producers for not trying to make the young actors on the series into Top 40 pop singers. *
You are correct. The two questions you reference here, the age difference and the crush could have various answers. Also, Tony Dow appeared in one season of General Hospital where he played a district attorney or an ADA. Not a very good quiz. I wrote a nearly 500 page book on Leave it to Beaver which has been out a few months. You may enjoy it since you're very knowledgeable about the show. It's called "The World Famous Beaverpedia."
