Our favorite TV family...The Cleavers.  It seems that generation after generation have turned to the moral code that this Mayfield family lives by. Everything always seemed so accurate about the show. It took place in Mayfield which represented "Everytown" USA...The family dynamics are that of a Norman Rockwell painting. So we all know the characters...we all know a bit about their real life back ground...So let's look at the name of the show: Leave it to Beaver....Who is Beaver?? Well, we know Jerry Mathers' character oh so well,,,but why was he called BEAVER?? Beav-ward
