I still smile at the adorable ways of little Theodore, laugh at his escapades and feel "Beaver's" pain when he got himself in a jam. The 1950's were an era of black & white television and directors defined situations through absolutes; right and wrong were clearly revealed. Sitcoms were not a platform for situation ethics. Viewers were fully aware; wrong actions resulted in dire consequences.
Big Brother Wally did not want his dad to dole out punishment; he knew the right thing to do, he would defend "the Beave." Our brother Jesus goes before the Father on our behalf. "My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have one who speaks to the Father in our defense-Jesus Christ, the Righteous One (1 John 2:1 NIV)." We might "Leave it to Beaver" to get in trouble but we can always leave it to Jesus to speak up for us!
