  1. I remember when you came to my school San Gabriel Avenue School in South Gate California in the sixties I met you then and I’ve been a fan of yours for ever keep up the good work

  2. Hey there Tony Dow.
    Hope all is well.
    Heard you fell ill.
    Grew up watching you on “black & white” TV.
    Love the show then, and still love watching it
    now. (in black & white)
    Love you guys.
    The whole cast.
    Was thinkin of trying to have my wife dress up
    like Mrs. Cleaver all nice and proper, but don’t
    think she’ll go for it.
    Only thing I can add is I think the network
    should have given you guys (You & Jerry)
    a spin off series. Woulda been cool.
    Like the both of you guys older with wives
    and kids with cool stories.
    God Bless

  3. I realize Tony has gone through depression, but he should always remember that leave it to beaver is an American institution. Tony just remember when your feeling down just think of the millions of people you have entertained and still do.

  4. One of my favorite shows all time. The topics and messages were great, the actors were amazing.

    I still watch the show and it always brings a smile to my face. Thank you Wally, PRAYERS WITH you and the family.

  5. “Leave It To Beaver” was show which portrayed real American values, long lost are is the age of incense. It is sad shows like this and other like the Andy Griffith show, Father Knows Best, My Three Son’s always are not recreated for current times. They always had some lesson or sense of doing the right things, being a good person – sense of right & wrong – those were the years you did not have to worry about the creeps and fears we have in todays world.

    RIP Tony – Thank you for being an positive influence on my upbringing!
