    I can't think about her without reminiscing of the classic scene in Airplane ("Cut me some slack, Jack".) R.I.P. Mrs. Billingsley.

    RIP!! She's in the arms of the angles. Thanks for the laughs. I've seen a lot of re-runs of Leave it to Beaver!Re: 4RealDeal – I saw that scene a couple weeks ago on TCM I've never seen her like that. I almost fell on the floor laughing and she looked great doing it!

    I guess this means we'll never hear her complain about Ward being hard on the Beaver again, I still watch this show on Netflix, for some corny reason I love it, toodle loo Mrs Cleaver

    I'm a baby boomer and I HAtED this show. What a bund of phony baloney. I had friends whose fathers were doctors and military officers and I used to go home with them after school. Their mothers NEVER had on a dress and pearls. What a crock of crap. And Tony Dow did an interview once and said that Hugh Beaumont who played the father on the show was basically a total s.o.b. who hated kids. The show was so phony and as a kid, I never related to it.

    RIP June Cleaver. Sadly missed.

    No disrespect to the actress, but I never liked her character on LTB. I found her constant complaining and her seemingly endless need to bombard her husband with yet another Beaver related problem the second he stepped in the door irritating. And I thought this when I was a just a kid watching reruns of the show.

    Re: dreamboat – I found them ALL extremely annoying. Oh, I loved Eddie. Eddie was Beaver's brother's friend who was probably a sociopath. I was hoping that 'Eddie' would go berserk and sneak into Beaver's house one night and send them all to '50's sitcom' heaven.
