Leave It To Beaver Ambush game

Leave it to Beaver Ambush Game The Leave It To Beaver Ambush Game seems to have absolutely no relation to the popular 1950's TV show other than a photo of the Beav himself on the lid; but supposedly young Jerry Mathers himself designed the game; so there you have it. The 1959 offering consists of a Wild West-themed game with a map board, spinner, plastic pieces, and instructions on the inside of the box lid.

Leave It to Beaver was a situation comedy which ran on CBS from October 4, 1957 to 1958 and then on ABC from 1958 to June 20, 1963. The show centered around the life of a child named Theodore "Beaver" Cleaver (played by Jerry Mathers). Many of the storylines revolved around Beaver's attempts (or refusals) to get along with his brother Wally (Tony Dow) and his parents Ward and June Cleaver (Hugh Beaumont, Barbara Billingsley). The episodes often portrayed a moral lesson. Today the show is often mocked for its bland, problem-free portrayal of 1950's life in fictional Mayfield, and is often invoked as a symbol of those simpler times.
