Premise:
A charming continuation of Beaver Cleaver's life. The show focused on a grown-up Beaver, basically an adult version
of himself as a child; his mother, good old June Cleaver; and his sons, Kip and Oliver. Beaver lives next door to his
brother Wally, Wally's wife Mary Ellen, and their daughter Kelly (who was 11 when the show was filmed, but looks about 6)
Such memorable characters as Frank Bank and Eddie Haskell still live in the neighborhood (Eddie with his doppelganger
son, Freddie) and act just the way they used to. Episodes mostly center around the kids, who get into the same type
of scrapes as their parents, such as Ollie being lifted into the air by a balloon chair made by Freddie, and Kelly
plagiarizing a piece of writing and having to read it aloud. Although a bit on the corny side, this was a charming
family show that should be remembered like its parent show!
