Gee, Wally, 60 years ago today, America had its first encounter with the Cleaver family. To see how it looked, click on the link below. This is from that first episode titled "Beaver Gets Spelled." The series was canceled by CBS after one season, but luckily was picked up by ABC where it ran for five more until September of 1963. These classic "coming of age" filmed episodes still run today.
