#15 Jerry Mathers played Theodore Cleaver, nickname Beaver. When he and Wally were very young, Wally had trouble saying Theodore, and it sounded like he was saying Beaver. The name stuck.

#15 The dirtiest line ever on TV was when June Cleaver said to her husband: "Ward, don't you think you were a little rough on the Beaver last night?"

The second dirtiest line ever on TV was when June said: "Ward, I'm going to the market, do you want to come?" And Ward said: "No thanks, dear, I think I'll just stay here with the boys and pack some fudge."

#13 I loved his role in Can't Hardly Wait. The ending of that film is not unlike what he decided to do with his life. Matt Keeslar was another favorite who left acting to become an RN too.
