Leave it to Beaver 50th Anniversary – 2007 – Good Morning America
Happy anniversary Leave it to Beaver! Our very first episode aired on October 4, 1957 and we then shot 235 episodes. The last first-run was in June of 1963. The show then went into re-runs and is still airing today…the longest running scripted show in television history!
Leave it to Beaver has had a great run and it is still relevant and humorous. I am glad to have had the privilege of being a part of this iconic television phenomenon which has made me friends all over the world. I truly treasure all my memories of the cast, crew and fans, many of whom are lifelong friends. When I look back, all of this has contributed to a great life!
While you are enjoying your Thanksgiving turkey feast, sit back, relax,and watch all your friends Ward (Hugh Beaumont), June (Barbara Billingsley), Wally (Tony Dow), Eddie (Ken Osmond), Lumpy (Frank Bank), Larry Mondello (Rusty Stevens), Gilbert Bates (Stephen Talbot) and the rest of the gang! Enjoy some fun memories along with your pumpkin pie!
