  1. Harris Fritz says:

    As usual, your personal recollections of your emotional connection to the subject is my favorite part of the show. So glad you include that as a gateway to the subjects you discuss.

    When you mentioned the names of two of the actors from the “Leave It to Beaver” pilot who were replaced when it went to series, was surprised you didn’t mention the most famous one, Harry Shearer, who went on to play multiple roles in the ’90s answer to “Leave It to Beaver,” aka “The Simpsons.” He played an antagonistic character who would be renamed in the rest of the series as Eddie Haskell.

  2. Robot Porter says:

    All six seasons of “Leave it to Beaver” are available for streaming on Netflix. And the series airs weekdays at 9AM on ME-TV.

  3. I had a friend when I was in the 6th grade whose father would call me Eddie Haskell. I’m not sure why, I was a good kid, I swear.
