Common Sense Media: All-American TV Shows

'Leave It to Beaver'

Ages: 6+

Why We Love It: Classic '50s sitcom is dated but still appealing.

What Parents Should Know: Parents need to know that this classic, squeaky-clean 1950s sitcom is an icon of American pop culture. Although it's certainly dated in look and dialogue, many of its themes about growing up, sibling rivalry, social adjustment, and parent-kid relationships are still pertinent today. That said, the fact remains that it's a very isolated look at a white, American suburban middle-class family. Today's savvy school-aged kids may find it unrealistic, simple, or boring (the black-and-white cinematography alone will probably be enough to turn a lot of them off). —Common Sense Media (Photo by Hulton Archive/Getty Images)
