Many if my friends aspired to be Eddie.
I was more like Lumpy.
Eddie Haskell Lives!!!
A perfect smarmy smartass. There was a tug of Eddie is a POS and someone a preteen wannabe badass could emulate
RIP and thanks for the laughs
thank goodness it was "Leave it to Beaver" and not "It's A Small World"
Harry Shearer as "Frankie" would not have become quite the cultural icon
Eddie Haskel the "Anti-Wally"
I always kinda thought he meant it in a way that wasn't exactly acknowledged in the show in those innocent days...like he thought she was REALLY looking lovely and he gave it a lot of thought in private.
anyway, he was the best thing in the show, imo.
No one looked as good doing household chores.
RIP Eddie, the guy we loved to hate.
Rest in peace, Ken.
I think that's wonderful that you were so innocent as to believe that Eddie was being sincere. I, too, took many things in TV shows back then literally. I didn't understand sarcasm, or "smarminess", or underhandedness. It was sometimes difficult to figure out who the "bad guy" in a show was, unless it was made very obvious. (which it usually was) It was especially hard, when an actor (who was a good guy in a different show last week) this week is a bad guy. That's just unfair to a young viewer.....no wonder I grew up to be pessimistic and suspicious of other people.
RIP Ken. Thank you for all the good times and laughs... you scallywag!
Sad news RIP.
The family was having a discussion at dinner and one of the kids that grew up with my kids came up in the conversation. My wife said "Oh, he's such a nice boy." My twins looked at each other and said "Not so much." My son said "He acts really nice and polite around parents, but he's not a good kid." I said "Eddie Haskell." My twins looked at me and said "Who?"
I educated them - Eddie Haskell's legacy shall live on.
My wife is always warning my kids to avoid the Eddie Haskell's of the world.
