Thanks.  In the fifties, two real life brothers played the same character in a movie, but at different ages.  One was about four or five years older than the other..  Later, they each became semi-regular cast members in a popular sitcom, but the older brother left the sitcom several years before the series ended.  The younger one stayed until the end.  Can you name the brothers, the movie that they were both in, and the popular sitcom?

Stanley and Tiger Fafara? 'Leave it to Beaver"?

Yes, and the movie that they were both in was "Good Morning, Miss Dove" from 1955.  You're up next, DGF. 

On this popular sitcom, the father of one of the characters, during the course of the series, had two different first names, and was portrayed by three different actors. Characters' names? Actors' names?

I knew Rob Petrie had several 'dads' on The Dick Van Dyke Show, ​but I thought they were all named 'Sam'....  Dads were Tom Tully, Will Wright and J. Pat O'Malley and IMDB all lists them as 'Sam"...am I on the wrong track?

Yes you are. This was the father of a juvenile.

I had to work a bit to find this answer.  On "Leave It To Beaver", the father of Eddie Haskell was played by Lloyd Corrigan as George Haskell, George Petrie as George Haskell, and John Alvin as Frank Haskell.  They made rather infrequent appearances.  Since Eddie always referred to his father as "my old man", none of the viewers really knew what his first name was.

Karl Swenson also played George Haskell. Your turn.

My mistake.  Lloyd Corrigan played Wally's father on "The Adventures Of Ozzie and Harriet".  That's what I first looked at before looking at "Leave It To Beaver".  It was indeed Karl Swenson as George Haskell.

 

Now. staying with "Leave It To Beaver", Beaver had two teachers in elementary school.  The first actress only appeared in a few episodes before she was replaced by another actress.  Can you name the two actresses and their character's names?  Bonus points if you can name the elementary school where they taught.

Off the top of my head, I know it was Miss Landers and Miss Canfield.

Sue Randall 

 

Sue Randall was a Philly girl.  Perhaps you knew her, DGF?  You're up next.

I saw Sue Randall the other night on Perry Mason playing a very dramatic role.

Seriously, she really does resemble my second grade teacher.

Getting back to my question, I'm looking for ___________Pond and _________Lake. To add to the question, when the boys play sports, they play at ___________Field.

I believe they went swimming at Miller's Pond.  There were several vacation spots mentioned, including Friends Lake, Shadow Lake, Crescent Lake, and Crystal Falls.  I don't know the name of the park where they played sports.  Could it be simply City Park?

 

In my previous question, I asked for Beaver's elementary school.  It was Grant Avenue Grammar School.

They play ball at Metzger's Field

 

Was watching Indestructible Man​ on tcm the other day, and seeing Max Showalter (Ward Cleaver in the pilot) made me think of Beaver...and how wise they were to change the casting.

Friends Lake was the one usually mentioned. The athletic field was Metzger's Field. Your turn.

As you may know, Richard Deacon had recurring or semi-regular roles on two TV series simultaneously.  He played Fred Rutherford on "Leave It To Beaver" and Mel Cooley on "The Dick Van Dyke Show".  The last few seasons of "Beaver" overlapped with the first few seasons of "Van Dyke".  Can you name two actresses who were in the same situation, where they were in recurring roles in two TV series at the same time?  The time would be the 1950's.  Actually, it would be mid to late 1950's.

Mary Jane Croft- The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet as Clara Randolph, 1955 to 1966, I Love Lucy as Betty Ramsey 1954 to 1857 and she was also the voice of Cleo the Dog on The People's Choice during the same time period, (1955-1958)

 

Hillary Brooke appeared on The Abbott and Costello Show from 1952 to 1953 and also played Roberta on My Little Margie from

1952 to 1955

I'm taking a shot with Hillary since she and Mary Jane were the 2 that came to mind

?????????????

Mary Jane Croft was one that I was thinking of.  I didn't think about Hillary.  My other actress was Madge Blake, who was in both "The Real McCoys" as Flora MacMichael and "Leave It To Beaver" as Mrs Mondello.  Good work, Lav.  It's your turn now.

Very good Shutoo. Gertrude Berg is correct. Gertrude started her character of Mrs. Goldberg on the radio, a character she invented. She wrote the scripts. The Goldbergs was on tv for 5 years. Although largely forgotten today, she was well known in the 50's. My parents and our neighbors watched the show and I vaugely remember hearing Youhoo, Mrs. Goldberg, ( I was very little at the time) a line that was famous from the tv show. Her 2 shows have been in re-runs, The Gertrude Berg Show is shown in the mornings. A very intelligent, talented woman and by all accounts a very lovely and nice woman who was involved in many humanitarian causes.

Great work Shutoo, your thread.
