The Beaver’s idyllic childhood

The Beaver was a curious and sometimes naïve boy, and the show examined his adventures at school, in his neighborhood, and at home. It had other stars, such as the rest of his family members and friends, but there is no doubt that he was the focus of this wildly popular show. Life was simpler back in the fifties and sixties. People had fewer distractions and were content occupying themselves by reading books, riding bicycles, and playing old-fashioned games with friends.
