This Day in History - The Beaver

From HistoryChannel.com:
1963 Leave It to Beaver ends

Leave It to Beaver, which had debuted in 1957, airs its last episode. The typical 1950s 'wholesome family' comedy presented the lives of the Cleaver family from the perspective of seven-year-old Theodore 'Beaver' Cleaver. The clan included parents June and Ward, and older brother Wally. The show enjoyed much popularity in reruns and a revival in the 1980s as The New Leave It to Beaver.
"Gee Wally. Looks like we're done."
Everyone still chuckles when they hear his name. Oh well.

Now we've gone from patient, understanding parental figures to smart-assed teens, idiot dads and overbearing and all-knowing mothers.

I hate sit-coms any more. Way too stupid.

And, of course, everyone's favorite quote from fifties TV:

"Gee, Ward, you were a little rough on the Beaver last night."

Bwah! I'd heard that and forgotten all about it.
