Leave it to Beaver Premieres, 1957

On this day in 1957, Leave it to Beaver, a family sitcom, premiered on CBS. Leave it to Beaver followed the funny shenanigans of eight-year-old Theodore “Beaver” Cleaver and featured his wholesome 50s suburbanite family.

The show was very popular due to its humble depiction of boyhood and family and enjoyed a six-year run. However, the show never made it onto the top twenty-five list or win an Emmy.

You know something, Wally? I’d rather do nothin’ with you than somethin’ with anybody else.

Well put, Beaver. Well put.
