    Wally is one of the few TV kids who went through puberty on tv and was cool throughout.

    Beaver was so awkward as a 12 year old, it made it hard to watch.

    It was revealed in the last episode that when Wally was young he could not pronounce "Theodore." What he said sounded to Ward and June like "Beaver."

    Fav episode of all-time is when Beav spends his haircut $$ on ice cream and Wally has to give him a haircut which forces the two to make up a club where they cannot remove their hats for any reason.

    And five years after that, The Beatles recorded "Love Me Do," their first song together.
