1. Leave It to Beaver (1957–1963)
Episode: Beaver's Dance (1960)

TV-G | 30 min | Comedy, Family

Beaver and Larry are forced to attend a series of high-class dances. After the first one, they decide to ditch them. Then they meet a young cowgirl and ride a horse.

Director: Bretaigne Windust | Stars: Barbara Billingsley, Hugh Beaumont, Tony Dow, Jerry Mathers

Votes: 53

With guest Karen Sue Trent as "cowgirl". Beaver and Larry seem to be rewarded for ditching Saturday dance class with the day of their lives when they meet a girl their age riding around on a horse. This was made the year before Karen was in Beaver's class as "Penny", but I like to think it is Penny living in a close-by neighborhood at the time and that she remembers Beaver the next year but doesn't mention it, and he doesn't recognize her because she is not in her cowboy hat anymore. In a future episode Penny mentions in class her love for horses, so that is a sign it could be the character Penny despite not being named in this episode.

2. Leave It to Beaver (1957–1963)
Episode: Farewell to Penny (1962)

TV-G | 30 min | Comedy, Family

Beaver learns a girl he fights with is moving out of town.

Director: David Butler | Stars: Barbara Billingsley, Hugh Beaumont, Tony Dow, Jerry Mathers

Votes: 55

with Penny In the first 3 seasons Beaver sits in class next to the tall, smart, tattletale Judy who is always his nemesis. Then in season 4 and the first half of season 5 Penny takes her place in the classroom but as a sometimes friend/sometimes nemesis of Beaver. At the beginning of this episode they are not getting along before Miss Landers announces that Penny is about to move away and they are going to have a going-away party for her after school at the end of the week. That is a delight to Beaver until his mom tells him he has to go to the party and get her a present like everyone else. The very ending is my favorite ending moment of the whole series.

3. Leave It to Beaver (1957–1963)
Episode: Beaver's Doll Buggy (1961)

TV-G | 30 min | Comedy, Family

When Beaver buys a wrecked 'coaster car' from Eddie Haskell, Wally pitches in to help his little brother fix it up and school chum Penny Woods promises him the wheels from her old doll ... See full summary »

Director: Anton Leader | Stars: Barbara Billingsley, Hugh Beaumont, Tony Dow, Jerry Mathers

Votes: 49

with Penny To complete his dune buggy (or "coaster wagon" as his mom June calls it) Beaver must get wheels by going to the house of his sometimes friend/sometimes enemy Penny and also meets her mom. Hilarious moments with a lot of heart.

4. Leave It to Beaver (1957–1963)
Episode: Teacher Comes to Dinner (1959)

TV-G | 30 min | Comedy, Family

Beaver's friends Larry, Whitey and Gilbert climb a tree to secretly spy on their teacher, Miss Landers, when she has dinner at the Cleaver house.

Director: Norman Tokar | Stars: Barbara Billingsley, Hugh Beaumont, Tony Dow, Jerry Mathers

Votes: 78

Amazing, Great, Fun, Best episode

I have 3 "favorite" episodes ahead of this probably because I like the relationship between Beaver and Penny but if I had to pick the very "best" episode that deserves the best rating it would definitely be this one.

with Sue Randall as Beaver's teacher Miss Landers

5. Leave It to Beaver (1957–1963)
Episode: Miss Landers' Fiance (1960)

TV-G | 30 min | Comedy, Family

Beaver gets upset when his favorite teacher gets engaged.

Director: Norman Abbott | Stars: Barbara Billingsley, Hugh Beaumont, Tony Dow, Jerry Mathers

Votes: 58

with Miss Landers In the second season when Miss Landers first becomes Beaver's teacher he has a crush on her, in the beginning of the third season he says his feelings are no longer a crush but likes her in the same way he likes his mom (which gives his mom who is listening a big smile), but here in the fourth season his crush sure seems to be back and Beaver realizes how much.

6. Leave It to Beaver (1957–1963)
Episode: The Black Eye (1957)

TV-G | Comedy, Family

Violet Rutherford gives Beaver a black eye.

Director: Norman Tokar | Stars: Barbara Billingsley, Hugh Beaumont, Tony Dow, Jerry Mathers

Votes: 95

The first appearance of "Violet Rutherford", played by Wendy Winkelman for only this one time. In this first season episode Ward's boss Mr. Rutherford has his daughter Violet but says he also has two sons in college who both have football scholarships. "Lumpy" is created later and replaces the college sons who no longer exist after this episode where they are not shown.

7. Leave It to Beaver (1957–1963)
Episode: Beaver and Violet (1960)

TV-G | 30 min | Comedy, Family

The Cleavers and the Rutherfords' picnic day turns into embarrassment for Beaver when a snapshot of Violet kissing him on the cheek appears on the cover of Ward's company magazine.

Director: David Butler | Stars: Barbara Billingsley, Hugh Beaumont, Tony Dow, Jerry Mathers

Votes: 60

The second appearance of "Violet Rutherford", now played by Veronica Cartwright. Contains perhaps my favorite scene in the whole series, when Wally makes a comment to his mom June about how she handled a call from Violet that Beaver didn't want to answer, and June gives Wally a double-look that you can't stop laughing at.

The second of only 3 episodes with Mrs. Rutherford in it, all played by 3 different actresses. In this episode Star Trek fans may recognize Violet's gorgeous mom as being played by Majel Barrett, who played Nurse Chapel in 25 episodes of "Star Trek", was "Number One" in the first pilot episode called "The Cage", was the voice of the ships computer in Star Trek:The Original Series, Star Trek:The Next Generation, Star Trek:Deep Space 9, Star Trek:Voyager, and Star Trek:The Animated Series. Also she was married to Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry in real life.

8. Leave It to Beaver (1957–1963)
Episode: My Brother's Girl (1958)

TV-G | 30 min | Comedy, Family

Mary Ellen Rogers schemes to get unsuspecting Wally to ask her to the school dance, using her friendship with Beaver to get closer to his big brother.

Director: Norman Tokar | Stars: Barbara Billingsley, Hugh Beaumont, Tony Dow, Jerry Mathers

Votes: 75

The episode where we first meet Mary Ellen Rogers (played by Pamela Baird), who we hear her name mentioned a lot all through the series in a positive manner even when she is not in the episodes. (She is only in 6 episodes but seems to be mentioned in about 50 episodes). She goes through a lot in this episode to get to meet Wally, in a roundabout way, and Wally's mom seems to know from experience exactly what is going on but Beaver sure doesn't.

9. Leave It to Beaver (1957–1963)
Episode: Wally's Weekend Job (1961)

TV-G | 30 min | Comedy, Family

After seeing all the girls swoon over Wally at his new job at a soda fountain, jealous Lumpy and Eddie plan revenge on Wally.

Director: Norman Abbott | Stars: Barbara Billingsley, Hugh Beaumont, Tony Dow, Jerry Mathers

Votes: 61

with Cheryl Holdridge One of the best episodes focusing on Wally where girls come in the ice-cream shop just to get to see Wally working. It is interesting that two of the girls at the counter are telling Wally that they are going to an all girl party later that night at Mary Ellen Rogers house, and then about a minute later they pan out the camera and we see Mary Ellen is actually sitting right next to them after they talked like they couldn't wait to see her later.

10. Leave It to Beaver (1957–1963)
Episode: Wally, the Businessman (1960)

TV-G | 30 min | Comedy, Family

When Ward gives Wally permission to get a job, Wally discovers that there is more to making money than just selling ice cream bars and that allies come from unlikely places.

Director: Norman Tokar | Stars: Barbara Billingsley, Hugh Beaumont, Tony Dow, Jerry Mathers

Votes: 55

with Cheryl Holdridge and a young Ann Jillian

11. Leave It to Beaver (1957–1963)
Episode: Wally's Big Date (1961)

TV-G | 30 min | Comedy, Family

Eddie tricks Wally into taking a tall girl to a school dance.

Director: David Butler | Stars: Barbara Billingsley, Hugh Beaumont, Tony Dow, Jerry Mathers

Votes: 67

Wally's date in this episode get's my vote as the perfect girl for him. It is the only episode she is in.

12. Leave It to Beaver (1957–1963)
Episode: Party Invitation (1958)

TV-G | 30 min | Comedy, Family

Beaver finds himself where no self-respecting second grade boy would ever want to be: the only boy invited to little Linda Dennison's otherwise all-girl party.

Director: Norman Tokar | Stars: Barbara Billingsley, Hugh Beaumont, Tony Dow, Jerry Mathers

Votes: 79

One of two great stories involving Linda Dennison (played by Patty Turner).

Actor Lyle Talbot does a very memorable and fun portrayal as Linda's hunter father, where he all of a sudden just appears, and makes me wish there was a sequel to the episode.

13. Leave It to Beaver (1957–1963)
Episode: Her Idol (1958)

TV-G | 30 min | Comedy, Family

To stop his friends from teasing him and prove that he doesn't have a crush on classmate Linda Dennison, Beaver is pressured into calling her a nasty name

Director: Norman Tokar | Stars: Barbara Billingsley, Hugh Beaumont, Tony Dow, Jerry Mathers

Votes: 58

The second of two great stories involving Patty Turner as Linda Dennison. She is a delight as a girl who Beaver seems to not know why he starts to like the attention she gives him. She is in at least four more episodes but you mainly just see her as the girl with wide open eyes in the back row of the classroom in those episodes. It is unbelievable to me that besides these two episodes she is never again given more than one word to say, and that "Leave it to Beaver" is the only t.v. show she would ever be on.

14. Leave It to Beaver (1957–1963)
Episode: Beaver's Crush (1957)

TV-G | 30 min | Comedy, Family

Beaver's crush on his teacher Miss Canfield and teasing by the other kids leads him to put a spring snake in her desk drawer. When his conscience starts acting up, he does his best to make sure the snake stays in the desk.

Director: Norman Tokar | Stars: Barbara Billingsley, Hugh Beaumont, Tony Dow, Jerry Mathers

Votes: 79

We see in this first-season episode that Beaver also had a crush on another teacher, Miss Canfield, the year before Miss Landers became his teacher. It is the first episode to feature Beavers friend Larry, he would appear in 67 episodes, the most of any of Beaver's friends, although Wally's friend Eddie would appear in 97 episodes.

15. Leave It to Beaver (1957–1963)
Episode: Box Office Attraction (1963)

TV-G | 30 min | Comedy, Family

Wally falls hard for the pretty ticket taker at the movie theater. When he takes her out on a date, he finds she is not as nice as he thought.

Director: David Butler | Stars: Barbara Billingsley, Hugh Beaumont, Tony Dow, Jerry Mathers

Votes: 77

Wally when he is a senior in high school goes out on a date with a 20 year old girl who is nice but not knowing she is a "woman of the world" as Gilbert puts it.

16. Leave It to Beaver (1957–1963)
Episode: Beaver and Ivanhoe (1960)

TV-G | 30 min | Comedy, Family

When Beaver's teacher Miss Landers assigns the class a book to read Ward suggests Ivanhoe, one of his favorite boyhood books. Impressed by the tale of knighthood, Beaver forms his own knight club and sets out to defend his neighborhood.

Director: David Butler | Stars: Barbara Billingsley, Hugh Beaumont, Tony Dow, Jerry Mathers

Votes: 51

with Miss Landers and Penny We get to see Karen Sue Trent again for the second time, this time officially as Penny, the school year before she is in Beaver's class, where her and her brother seemed to have just moved to that neighborhood and are taking the schoolbus for the first time but are in a different classroom from Beaver.

17. Leave It to Beaver (1957–1963)
Episode: Beaver's Team (1960)

TV-G | 30 min | Comedy, Family

When Wally and Eddie coach Beaver's summer football team and give them a secret play to use against the opposing team, Beaver finds out that the best way to keep a secret is to not tell it...to anyone!

Director: David Butler | Stars: Barbara Billingsley, Hugh Beaumont, Tony Dow, Jerry Mathers

Votes: 46

with Penny In this episode after the school year of season three (but the summer before Beaver and Penny are in the same classroom in season four) Beaver all of a sudden knows Penny well and when they see each other they sit down by a tree and talk to each other like old friends. It makes you think you missed an episode when they got to know each other, but there was no such episode. Then two boys come afterward and ask Penny what she was talking to Beaver about, and one of them says he thinks Penny's brother is stupid. The funny thing is the last time we saw Penny in a previous episode ("Beaver and Ivanhoe") he WAS her brother.

18. Leave It to Beaver (1957–1963)
Episode: The Last Day of School (1960)

19. Leave It to Beaver (1957–1963)
Episode: Junior Fire Chief (1961)

TV-G | 30 min | Comedy, Family

Ward and June are proud when Beaver is elected as his grammar school class's Junior Fire Chief for Fire Prevention Week until he starts taking his honorary position a little too seriously.

Director: Norman Abbott | Stars: Barbara Billingsley, Hugh Beaumont, Tony Dow, Jerry Mathers

Votes: 49

with Miss Landers and Penny Miss Landers announces an election to see who will be the classes Junior Fire Chief and at one point it seems all the boys are going to vote for Beaver and all the girls are going to vote for Penny. During this episode Penny tells Miss Landers she was in a horse show the night before, which seems a big clue that she is the same character as in the episode "Beavers Dance", as the cowgirl, (which was Karen Sue Trent's first appearance but they never mentioned her characters name in the episode). If there was ever a time for Penny to remind Beaver of the first time they met in that previous episode it would be in this episode when they are rivals and it would be to her advantage for him to remember the fun they had that day, but like Larry predicted in that previous episode, she would probably not even recognize them the next time they met.

20. Leave It to Beaver (1957–1963)
Episode: Beaver's Sweater (1959)

TV-G | 30 min | Comedy, Family

Beaver uses his own $13 to buy a wild Eskimo-style sweater, but regrets it when Judy Hensler has the same one.

Director: Norman Tokar | Stars: Barbara Billingsley, Hugh Beaumont, Tony Dow, Jerry Mathers

Votes: 60

One of my two favorite episodes that involves Judy. Beaver saves up for an awesome looking sweater he can't wait to wear until he finds out Judy has the same taste as him.

21. Leave It to Beaver (1957–1963)
Episode: School Bus (1959)

TV-G | 30 min | Comedy, Family

Beaver gets suspended from riding the school bus for acting up.

Director: Norman Tokar | Stars: Barbara Billingsley, Hugh Beaumont, Tony Dow, Jerry Mathers

Votes: 59

with Miss Landers The other of my two favorite episodes involving Judy. It is announced everyone can take the school bus no matter how close they live to school, to the dismay of Judy who now has to share the bus with many more students including Beaver. The best scenes between Beaver and Judy are in this one.

with Miss Landers The last episode with Miss Landers as Beavers teacher, here at the end of season 4. There is an episode where it is explained why Miss Landers teaches third grade, then fourth grade, then fifth grade, resulting in her teaching the same students three years in a row.
