Default Leave it to Beaver characters

With the very recent death of Tony Dow ("Wally Cleaver"--Beaver's older brother), most of the cast of Leave it to Beaver is now gone, it seems.

Hugh Beaumont ("Ward Cleaver"--the father) died way back in 1982 (May 14, to be exact).

Barbara Billingsley ("June Cleaver"--the mother) lived much longer; but she died October 16, 2010.

Frank Bank ("Clarence 'Lumpy'" Rutherford) died April 13, 2013.

Richard Deacon ("Lumpy's" father) died August 8, 1984.

Ken Osmond (Wally's friend) died May 18, 2020.

Stanley Fafara (Hubert "Whitey" Whitney) died September 20, 2003.

Some of Beaver's other friends may have fared better, however.

I am not really certain of the status as concerning Stephen Talbot ("Gilbert Bates" or Rusty Stevens ("Larry Mondello").

Ken Osmond played Eddie Haskell. I remember that character more than Lumpy and some others.

Sorry about Wally. The Beave is still among us.

Yeah, that is the one I remembered most too.

Unfortunately, Ken Osmond became typecast as "Eddie Haskell"--producers simply could not envision him as anyone else, from what I have heard--so he could never get another job acting.

Evidently, that is why to turned to the LAPD, and became a motorcycle cop, instead.

I can see that. If I had ever saw him in a movie, I would call him Eddie.

Could you imagine being pulled over by him? EDDIE! How's the Beav.?
