Editorial Reviews

Finally, The Complete Series! Beautifully Restored and Remastered on 37 Discs!


Inspired by the real life experiences of creators Joe Connelly and Bob Moshers own children, Leave It To Beaver follows the hilarious everyday adventures of young Theodore 'Beaver' Cleaver and his older brother Wally. Whether at home, at school or playing around their suburban neighborhood, Beaver always manages to get himself into some kind of trouble, comically learning each valuable lesson life has to offer along the way. Alongside baseball and apple pie, Leave It To Beaver reigns supreme in the pantheon of Americana. Boasting 234 episodes, spanning six iconic seasons from 1957 63, no other series on television better exemplifies the purity of childhood and importance of family in America.

Bonus Features:

* Its A Small World: The rare pilot episode that started it all!

* Forever The Beaver - The Cleavers Look Back: Cast members Jerry Mathers, Tony Dow and Barbara Billingsley as well as renowned collector and co-creator of The New Leave It To Beaver Brian Levant reflect on the quintessential American family sitcom.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE HOLY "BEAVER" GRAIL June 29, 2010
QUICK DVD STATS:

Number of Episodes -- 234 (Plus the Original Pilot Episode)
Number of Discs -- 37 (Single-Sided)
Video -- 1.33:1 Full Frame (B&W)
Audio -- Dolby Digital 2.0 Mono (English only)
Any Bonus Stuff? -- Heck, yes! (Details below)
Subtitles? -- No (But each of the episodes is Closed Captioned in English)
"Play All" Option? -- Yes
Are These Episodes Complete and Unedited? -- Yes! (With a very minor "but"; details below)
DVD Distributor -- Shout! Factory (The set is copyrighted by NBC Universal)

---------------------------------------------------

On June 29, 2010, a very pleasant thing happened -- something that many people probably didn't think would ever happen in their lifetime -- the audio and video company "Shout! Factory" released to the public "LEAVE IT TO BEAVER: THE COMPLETE SERIES", a spectacular 37-Disc DVD collection that includes all 234 episodes of what I consider to be one of the best and most rewatchable television series of all-time.

And Shout! has treated The Beav with expert care too, make no mistake about that fact. These 234 shows (plus the pilot episode, entitled "It's A Small World", which is also included in this mega-set) look and sound fantastic on these DVDs. All of the episodes were filmed in black-and-white, and the restored B&W prints that are presented in this collection are sensational.

To quote Brian Ward, the producer of this DVD boxed set:

"These episodes are complete and look better than you've ever seen them before. They've been restored and remastered from the original film elements. I've honestly never seen 50s television look this good.

Allow me to begin by paraphrasing Sir Edward of Haskell...
"Hey Sam...so you're thinking about whether or not to buy the Complete Leave it To Beaver series box set? Well, Gertrude, let me tell you, don't think twice and just do it!!!"

OK. On a more serious note, it's not for nothing that Leave it To Beaver has remained one of the most popular, beloved and copied sitcoms for more than half a century. Sure, it's all too easy to mock or stereotype the show as the quintessential prototype of the Faux Fifties Americana. And, perhaps to some degree, there is something to that argument. But only to a small degree.

However, the REAL reason for the show's enduring success is that it had all the core elements of great television, and most notably, intelligent writing.
Let me personalize this to illustrate the point: when I was a kid, back in the late 60s and early 70s I first began watching the show, already in reruns. I enjoyed the show for many reasons, not the least of which was that even then, almost 10 years after it originally aired, it seemed to have timeless childhood themes. Perhaps the lexicon was a tad dated ("Gee, Wally, why are girls so goofy?") but the fact that the show never mocked the children, but seemed to empathize with them, appealed to me (even if I didn't know why at the time.)

Over the years, as the show (obviously) remained the same and I matured (well, mostly) and especially after I became a professional writer, I came to truly appreciate the nuances of the show's writing and the timeless themes of 'growing up' that transcended the arrival of the technological age.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dreams do come true !!!! February 19, 2010
Verified Purchase
This is a "dream come true" for fans of the classic "Leave It To Beaver" series.All six seasons of the series to be released in one complete set by Shout! Factory.With reports that the episodes will be re-mastered to pristine quality from original film elements...this is reason to celebrate for all the fans of this classic 1950's tv series.Thanks very much to the Shout! Factory for making this dream finally become a reality.At a great pre-release price from Amazon,it does not get much better than this.I can't wait to spend my summer in Mayfield and own literally every episode of this great show.They simply don't make shows like this anymore!!. It will be a welcome addition to my classic television library.I can't wait !!!.

I have been waiting for this for a long time! I can't wait to get this complete set! Every time I start feeling stressed out by today's fast paced nastiness I put in my Leave it to Beaver DVD's and I can instantly feel all the stress and anger slowly draining away!!

After reading everybody's reviews on this so far, I do have to ask a question though...Why...did you actually print that review by that idiot "Jim Walsh"??? What kind of an idiot writes a review about a show he hates?? Does he not get the difference between a review and a chat room? And what is with the nasty remarks about Leave it to Beaver? Anybody who is from that era (myself included) knows that that IS how people were then! Children were raised with manners, something so sadly lacking in today's children. Even Eddy, even though he was supposed to be a "bad" kid still had manners. He wasn't snotty nasty and rude.

If I would have spoken to my parents like the kids today speak to their parents...I would have had my mouth washed out with soap!!

I truly miss the way the world was when I was a child. People were nicer. I remember that we never locked the door to our house! When my mother went to the store she never locked her car door. If somebody saw someone drop a twenty dollar bill on the ground they picked it up and ran after them to return it to them! It wasn't so rare that became front page news!! It was just the right thing to do. When somebody new moved in next door, everybody got together and brought them a basket of food and stuff to welcome them to the neighborhood. If something bad happened to somebody, then the whole neighborhood chipped in to help them out. Sigh...I miss the days of Leave it to Beaver.

I for one can't think of anything better to spend my money on than this wonderful stress relieving DVD set!

Leave It To Beaver
I would scrap season 1 and 2 if I we're you. Those releases had double-sided discs which makes it easier to scratch or touch the discs. Although I thought the picture quality still looked good. But there we're also no bonus features. Shout Factory has done a good job on releasing bonus stuff on... Read More

Disk quantity discrepency?
The 24 disc set making the rounds elsewhere is not the official Shout set, and appears to have been taped off TV.

Barbara Billingsley has died.
June was the best. She could take down Donna Reed, Mary Anderson and Aunt Bee all at one time. Don't forget when she talked "jive" on the plane in "Airplane"
