You may think we’re “giving you the business” or somethin’ but the classic family sitcom “Leave It to Beaver” premiered today in 1957! The sitcom followed the daily routine of the Cleaver family including wise and usually understanding father Ward, kindly pearl-adorned mother June, reliable older brother Wally and slightly more troubled little brother Theodore who was known to all as the Beaver! The Cleaver boys had a seemingly endless group of friends who all did their best to get them in trouble in one way or another. From smarmy Eddie Haskell to obnoxious Larry Mondello the school chums of Mayfield all impacted life at the Cleaver home. Celebrate that era and the show with the Marion Library’s book The World According to Beaver!
