No Wonder It Wasn't Funny

"If any line got too much of a laugh, they'd take it out. They didn't want a big laugh; they wanted chuckles." - Tony Dow on Leave It To Beaver

I grew up watching lots of old reruns, including just about every episode of Leave It To Beaver. I guess because it really was more of a show aimed at kids than even a "family" show, it seemed pretty good to me then, though I don't think I ever laughed a lot while watching it; there are whole episodes of the show that didn't get any laughs out of me at all.

Not to say that some beaver jokes can't be funny.
