Leave It To Beaver coming to DVD!

Good news for us Leave It To Beaver fans. Universal has announced a release date of 11/22/2005 for Leave It To Beaver: The Complete First Season on DVD. The 3 disc set will have all 39 digitally remastered episodes from the complete first season of Leave it to Beaver. It will include the original pilot, titled "It's A Small World", which should be interesting to see again. The only time I've seen it before was once on TV back in the 80's. The pilot episode had different actors playing the part of Wally (Paul Sullivan) and Ward (Casey Adams) and a character named Frankie played by Harry Shearer (The Simpsons, Spinal Tap, Saturday Night Live). The Leave It To Beaver series was produced in 1957-1963. more info...
