Product Description

America's quintessential family returns with all 39 original, uncut episodes of Leave It to Beaver Season 2! Return to Mayfield for a warm welcome from its most charming family -- the Cleavers: wise pop Ward (Hugh Beaumont), resourceful mother June (Barbara Billingsley), curious older brother Wally (Tony Dow), and lovable, scruffy Theodore "Beaver" (Jerry Mathers). From building a boat to beating a bully to dealing with girls (cooties!), there's nothing the two Cleaver boys can't handle with a little luck and a lot of wholesome, homespun advice. Digitally remastered for optimum picture and audio quality, critics declare "…this 1957-1963 sitcom is as enjoyable today for its '50s nostalgia as it was then for its modern, understated humor" (David Bianculli, New York Daily News). Gee whiz!

Amazon.com

The second season of Leave It to Beaver finds the Cleaver family happy and wholesome as ever, with most episodes involving the Beaver getting into a scrape, or hearing the from-the-mountaintop advice from Mom or Dad afterwards. Despite the formula, the episodes hold up well, because of the earnestness of the actors and the delivery of their lines, which is, well, swell. Mom June (Barbara Billingsley) is the matriarch who makes it all look easy in her well-pressed frocks and pearls (pay close attention to those necklaces--there are actually several; some plain strands and some with pendants), and Dad Ward (Hugh Beaumont) is thoughtful and a little monolithic. But it's the adventures of boys, older brother Wally (Tony Dow) and the Beav (Jerry Mathers), that make the show so fun. One episode involves Beav and pal Larry (Rusty Stevens) playing hooky (they're late to school anyway, and they figure they may as well get "killed" later as opposed to today), and then winding up on live TV, on a show which June just happens to be watching. Moral? Golly gee, there's more than one, and they're delivered by both parents and Beav's teacher--and echoed earnestly by Beaver himself. The chuckles come in a ready stream, even if sometimes inadvertently. Sample exchange: Wally: "Mom, can I get tattooed?" June: "Tattooed!? Absolutely not!" Wally: "Oh, OK. Bye." No wonder people are so nostalgic for the '50s--teenagers never gave anyone any lip. This season, 1957-58, contains 39 remastered episodes on three double-sided discs, and is a treasure box of nostalgia, in the absolute best sense. --A.T. Hurley

It is certainly a joy to all Beaver fans to see this excellent series return so quickly with the second season. Many of the same endearing characters are present with brand new, hilarious adventures. For those of you who are interested, I have compiled a list of the episodes and a short summary of each. Enjoy!

1. Beaver's Poem (10/2/1958)

When Beaver has trouble with a poetry assignment, Ward decides to help the Beav by writing the poem himself. However, when Beaver wins an award for the poem, Ward must explain what happened to the principal. (Overall episode rating : 5 stars.)

2. Eddie's Girl (10/9/1958)

Eddie's alleged girlfriend falls in love with Wally. (Overall episode rating : 4 stars.)

3. Ward's Problem (10/16/1958)

Ward must decide to spend the weekend either with Beaver on a school function or with Wally on a fishing trip; Beaver thinks that Ward will spend the weekend with Wally and proceeds to invent a wild tale to explain Ward's absence to his school friends. (Overall episode rating : 5 stars.)

4. Beaver and Chuey (10/23/1958)

When Beaver meets a new friend that only speaks Spanish, he asks Eddie to help him communicate with him. However, Eddie decides to play a cruel joke on Beaver. (Overall episode rating : 4 stars.)

5. The Lost Watch (10/30/1958)

When Beaver is put in charge of guarding everyone's belongings during a baseball game, Lumpy accuses Beaver of loosing his watch. (Overall episode rating : 5 stars.)

6. Her Idol (11/6/1958)

When Beaver becomes close friends with a girl in school, his friends bully him into insulting her. (Overall episode rating : 5 stars.)

I've been a fan of this series from the moment it debuted in 1957, and loved practically every show produced. I equate this show as comfort food for the soul. I loved watching the boys (and parents grow) over the years, and loved every minute of it. Yes...it's true...how many mothers actually wore pearls around the house? During the 50's my mom's dress of choice was a Muu Muu...but the casting of this show was superb...from all the parents..the boys....which I felt acted like real boys of the 50's and early 60's....their friends.. we all had friends like these...Eddie Haskell....what an inspired character!...the list just goes on and on..Lumpy, Gus, Gilbert, Larry Mrs. Landers......etc. etc....... they all fit...and invited us as friends each week......

The bottom line is, that when I watch most "modern" televsion these days.. I walk away from them feeling dirty, and feel that I can't sit comfortably watching them with my family....I get sick of the sexual innuendo...and mean spirited "jokes"

HOWEVER, I always have a warm glow after watching a Beaver episode...yes...a lot of it's hokey..but it's GREAT hokiness.... the show doesn't have to resort to crude ugly scripts for a cheap laugh...it does it with great writing, directing, and most of all believable actors...

I grew up watching this show..and it brings back some very poignant memories... I just wish I could rate this with more than 5 stars...

I have the first box set, and plan on getting ALL the seasons...try it...you'll love it...you won't ever find shows of this quality again on TV....... these are a real treasure!!

ENJOY!!!!

Once again, a great show has been been butchered by Universal.

There's nothing I can add to previous reviews regarding this most perfect example of sitcoms from the 50s/60s that hasn't been said already. There is plenty I can say about Uniserval however... without a doubt the worst of all DVD producers for the following reasons:

[1] Low, low quality transfers. I don't think I've ever bought any DVD released by Universal wherein images didn't freeze or screw up on one way or another.

[2] Double-sided discs with side identification print so small, you never know which side you are putting on.

[3] Virtually no documentation or bonus material, when plenty is available.

...and perhaps most importantly...

[4] WHY IS SEASON 3 NOT BEING RELEASED!?

For those of us old enough to remember watching this show in "real time" Universal's decision to hold back on releasing the final four seasons risks losing its audience. After all, we are all growing older with each day that passes and I sometimes wonder whether I'll live long enough to ever see the entire series reach the light of day on DVD.

A great show, but the Season 2 set, as good as it is, is hampered by the "Universal DVD Release Syndrome." In a word: A W F U L. Poor transfer, poor....no use listing them all again....poor everything.

As for Season 3 - where is it? Answer: There won't be a Season 3. They have done the exact same thing with other great shows. A season or two and then - no more. "Dragnet 1968" for example, the classic series with Jack Webb & Harry Morgan - One Season and out.

Universal needs new management of their DVD division as the complaints are far and wide and LOUD. I simply don't understand why they don't listen.

It's such a shame as LITB is such a classic television series that deserved so much more than what Universal delivered - and then dropped.

Where Is Season 3?
I wrote to Universal the other day and they sent a reply that said they won't be putting out anymore due to rights issues. They have done this to about 7 series that I collect. Won't get anymore of my money.

Leave it to Beaver Season 3.. When??
I wrote to the studio's website a few weeks ago, and they responded that there was no information on if additional seasons would be released.
