[ # ] Tony Dow and Jerry Mathers talk about Leave It to Beaver
October 25th, 2017 under 60s, Kathie Lee and Hoda


Back in 1957, Leave It to Beaver debuted and it has been airing ever since. Making it one of the longest running shows on television. Even though it has been 60 years since the show first hit the airwaves, Beaver and his brother Wally are still talking about it. Jerry Mathers, 69, and Tony Dow, 72, were on Today and also on Today with Kathie Lee and Hoda to talk about the family sitcom that forever made them household names.

Did you know that show was on more than one network? Its first season aired on CBS and the remaining 5 were on ABC. A Variety critic said if the show lasted for more than 2 weeks, he would eat his hat. No word how the hat tasted. Also the actors revealed that their TV father, Hugh Beaumont, was working as a Methodist minister at the time and only became an actor to pay the bills. No wonder the show had and still has the wholesome feel.

But the best thing to came out of this interview was seeing how close the TV brothers are even after all of these decades. To me, when a show’s cast is still gets along years after the show has ended, it explains why the show is still a sucess even after it has been cancelled.
