Most Interesting Character: Episode #78, Most Interesting Character

The Most Interesting Character I Have Ever Known, by Beaver Cleaver

First Draft:
The most interesting character I have ever known is my father, Mr. Ward Cleaver. My father was born right here in this town and still lives in it. He has a very interesting job. He goes to the office every day, except Saturday and Sunday and Christmas and Thanksgiving and all the other holidays and he is also married to my mother and has two sons, me and Wally. The interesting things he did today was put up screens. He also took the car to get a new fan bell, which was loose. He can fix things and can take a pill without water.

Revised by Wally:
The most interesting character I ever knew, was my father, Mr. Ward Cleaver. He was born at the mouth of the Amazon, which is a river, and when he was a baby, he was stolen out of his crib by a crocodile, and in the nick of time, he was saved by a friendly headhunter with a blow gun. During the war, he was a secret general, where he had many interesting experiences. Now he has a job in an office, but he really works for the FBI. On Sundays, he goes to the beach and saves a lot of people from drowning.

Final Report:
The most interesting character I have ever know is my father, Mr. Ward Cleaver. He does not have an interesting job, he just works hard and takes care of all of us. He never shot things in Africa or saved anybody that was drowning, but thatís all right with me because when I am sick he brings me ice cream and when I tell him things or ask him things he always listens to me. He used a whole Saturday to make things in the garage. He may not be interesting to you or someone because heís not your father, heís mine.

The Duck & The Bear poems: Episode #36, Beaver's Poem

The Duck

One I wished I was a duck
Cause most ducks have lots of luck
They swim around all day in a pool.
And mostly never have to go to school.
Then I saw a duck
Hanging in a butcher store
And I didnít want to be a
A duck no more

 

The Bear

I would like to be a bear
gay and happy, free from care
thatís the life like no other
climbing trees with my mother

Beaver's fictitious war letter from Ward: Episode #48, Beaver's Hero

Dear June,
I'm sitting here with my submachine gun waiting for the enemy to attack.
They haven't arrived yet so I'm writing you this letter. Me and all the
other brave men have been here on Wake Island for two weeks. This
morning I volunteered for a dangerous patrol and captured 65 prisoners
single handed and the general said, "Good job Ward". He said he wished
he had more men like me. I have to finish now as I hear the enemy
approaching.
Signed your friend, Ward
P.S. I got your last letter and I am sorry you lost all those metals I
sent you.

On school nights my parent won't let me go out, they say it makes my schoolwork suffer, but all my friends can go out on school nights. I think they are being unfair. What do you think? Signed Prisoner.

The Autobiography of Theodore Cleaver by Theodore Cleaver: from Beaver's Autobiography, Episode #200

I was born in the middle of the African jungle. My father was a famous newspaper correspondent and was writing a story about some cannibals, my mother went with him to make sure they didn't eat him alive or something like that, so that's why I was born there. When I was little I played with all the cannibal kids and their monkey friends, it was real fun especially when they went out headhunting. Sometimes it was very hard to find enough head for everyone, so some of the kids let me play with their heads, that was real neat. When I was a little bigger, the King and Queen of England asked my father to come over to England to have tea and crumpets with them because they were such good friends. So my mother and I went with him. We lived with them in Windsor Castle for a long time and I got to be real good friends with their little boy Charlie. Everybody else called him Prince Charles. Then my father was sent to interview the Sultan of Morocco, so we rode on camels for 30 days, bouncing up and down.
