    R.I.P. Mr. Osmond
    I didn't watch that show all that much, but when people use the name "Eddie Haskell" to describe someone, I know what they mean.

    Every show, Ward (Dad) had a lesson that Wally and the Beav learned.
    Some episodes are on YouTube.

    I watched it too. Here’s something I did not know about Ken Osmond:

    In 1970, Osmond joined the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) and grew a mustache in an effort to secure anonymity from average citizens, although not his co-workers. He worked as a motorcycle officer.

    On September 20, 1980, Osmond was struck by five bullets while in a foot chase with a suspected car thief. He was protected from four of the bullets by his bullet-resistant vest, with the fifth bullet ricocheting off his belt buckle. The shooting was later dramatized in a November 1992 episode of the CBS series Top Cops. Osmond applied for a disability pension in 1984, but after an evidentiary hearing in 1986, the Los Angeles Board of Pension Commissioners denied his request by a 4–2 vote. Osmond appealed the determination to the Superior Court and in 1988 a judge overturned the Board's denial and awarded Osmond a lifetime pension and he retired from the force.

    RIP Eddie. Talk about every parent's nightmare as a friend for their kid. I watched the show faithfully growing up. My favourite line ever has to be June Cleaver saying: "Ward, you were awfully hard on the Beaver last night". :crazy::lush:

    You guys are old. I know the show and have seen couple episodes. I knew of the character Eddie Haskell from pop culture, not the show.
