Probably the third-most famous sitcom of TheFifties, behind ''ILoveLucy'' and ''TheHoneymooners''. Along with ''FatherKnowsBest'', it is always invoked when looking back on 1950s culture and family life, whether as a matter of nostalgia, pop culture history, lighthearted parody, or scathing satire. People [[StealthPun always seem to dwell on]] the tract housing with white picket fences, or the fact that June Cleaver ''always'' wore pearls and high heels, even when doing the most menial tasks.

* SecretDiary: Ward gives aspiring novelist Beaver a diary, telling him it's for private, personal things -- but also that great writers have used ideas they first recorded in childhood diaries. Beaver is subsequently late coming home from school, so of course the ''first'' thing his parents do is break into his diary, where he's written lurid accounts of criminal activity. Despite the setup, it never occurs to them that these are anything but factual.

* TheMovingExperience: Season 2's "Beaver Says Goodbye" has Beaver prematurely mention to his classmates that he's moving after overhearing Ward mention making an offer on a house in another town, only to find out the owner of that house accepted another offer; [[spoiler:resulting in the kids giving Beaver going away presents despite the fact that it turned out he wasn't moving after all]]. Interestingly, the Cleaver family would move to another house in Mayfield by the start of Season 3.
