[via press release from Universal Studios Home Entertainment]

'LEAVE IT TO BEAVER,' THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON: AVAILABLE JUST IN TIME FOR MOTHER'S DAY, AS A TRIBUTE TO ONE OF TV'S MOST BELOVED MOTHERS, JUNE CLEAVER

Swell New Three-Disc Set Including all 39 Season Two Episodes Available May 2, 2006 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. -- May 1, 2006 -- America's favorite '50s family returns on DVD with all 39 original, uncut episodes of "Leave It to Beaver: Season Two" from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. Lovable Jerry Mathers stars as scruffy, but adorable Theodore "Beaver" Cleaver in this return to mid-century American innocence and optimism. Digitally remastered for optimum picture and audio quality, Leave It to Beaver: Season Two follows the continuing adventures of "the Beave" and his older brother Wally (Tony Dow), as they navigate the pitfalls of suburban boyhood with the sage advice of their dad, Ward (Hugh Beaumont) and unfailing support of their mom, June (Barbara Billingsley). One of the best-loved comedies in television history, "Leave It to Beaver" warmed hearts and tickled funny bones for six seasons. Comedic situations, tender family moments and gentle moral lessons have made this timeless comedy a perennial favorite.

Whether getting into another jam with best friend Larry Mondello or being given the business by Wally's pal Eddie Haskell, Beaver Cleaver has a knack for wriggling out of all kinds of trouble. The show's enduring charm led David Bianculli of New York Daily News to declare, "this 1957-1963 sitcom is as enjoyable today for its '50s nostalgia as it was then for its modern, understated humor." The DVD is priced at $49.98 SRP.
