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.

-Beaver to his brother
Well put, Beaver. Well put.
