    Many if my friends aspired to be Eddie.

    I was more like Lumpy.

    RIP

    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

    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.

    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. ;)

    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.
