June Cleaver (Leave It to Beaver) Ok. So it’s not exactly literature. But it’s June Cleaver. We LOVE June Cleaver, Everymom, and we LOVED Barbara Billingsley for playing her to a T. In the 1950s situation comedy, Leave It to Beaver, June is the wife of Ward, a businessman of some indeterminate category, and the mother of Wally and the unfortunately named “Beaver”, for some reason a nickname for Theodore (what happened to good old “Ted”?). Anyway, our June is a wonder to behold – her house is immaculate, her meals are delicious and timely, her motherly advice is warm and gentle and one presumes her marital relations are above reproach, twin beds notwithstanding. All this is accomplished in dresses, high heels, pearls and perfectly coiffed hair. Of course, all this has been noted before by one wit or another, but not, we may assure you, in the 1950s. Then it was taken seriously, and many was the frazzled housefrau who saw herself falling woefully short of the mark; many was the envious child who wondered why his mother bore no resemblance to the lovely June. Now we know that it was all a sham, a dirty, pinko Communist plot to keep us grounded in our Eisenhower fog, but then – we believed! And some of us didn’t catch on until the lady herself came out of the closet in the 1980 movie, Airplane, to prove she could jive with the best of them.
