Who did it: Beaver Cleaver or Ritchie Petrie?

These Sixties sitcom sons never failed to entertain.

Jerry Mathers and Larry Mathews were two of the most famous kids in early 1960s America. Mathews played Dick Van Dyke's son, Ritchie, on The Dick Van Dyke Show and Mathers will forever be remembered as Theodore "Beaver" Cleaver from Leave it to Beaver.

On both shows, these precocious youngsters dealt with school bullies, adopted some unusual pets, and got into some hilariously sticky situations.

How well do you recall the exploits of Beaver and Ritchie? Try to guess who did what! And remember, the same specific thing could apply to both of them.

Watch Leave It to Beaver on MeTV!

So Wally and Beaver were up in their bedroom getting ready to go get breakfast...
Wally: "I think it's time for us to start cursing"
Beav: "Gee Wally, that sounds great! What'll we say?"
Wally: "I'll say damn, and you say ass."
Beav: "Wow! Ok!"

They go downstairs and sit at the breakfast table.

June: (looking at Wally) "What do you want for breakfast?"
Wally: "Gimme some of those damn Cheerios"

June whaps Wally with a spatula and runs upstairs crying...

June: (Looking at the Beav) "Now, what do YOU want to eat?"
Beav: I dunno, but you can bet your ass it ain't Cheerios!"

Rim shot!!!

Considering their sponsor was Ralston (Checkerboard Square) you bet your ass they would have them eating those damn Chex cereals.

Both, means that if you answer one of them, you're correct!

When answering a multiple choice question, by definition, you must choose the best answer.
