The complete first season of Leave it to Beaver is now on DVD. The Cleavers lived in the town of Mayfield and shared many of the same trials and tribulations as the "nuclear families" who comprised the show's fan base. What really sold the series was the warm, realistic rapport between the Cleaver kids and their parents, and the authentic-sounding dialogue, full of the slang and idioms common to youngsters of the Eisenhower era.
