In a recent interview, Tony talked about his time on Leave It To Beaver and admitted that he probably hasn’t seen every episode. Apparently, production didn’t want the kids watching the show and getting a big head.
He said, “They actually asked our parents not to let us watch the show on TV so we wouldn’t get a big head. So there are probably some episodes that I haven’t seen yet… And there was no swearing on set at all, not even from the crew. They wanted to keep it as family-friendly as possible at all times.”
Wishing Tony a speedy recovery!
