RIP Ken Osmond - Eddie Haskell 1589826706256-png

i think in school we all had a friend like this. I know I did. RIP Ken Osmond. 

Ken Osmond, who on TV’s “Leave It to Beaver,” played two-faced teenage scoundrel Eddie Haskell, a role so memorable it left him typecast and led to a second career as a police officer, died Monday.
Osmond died in Los Angeles at age 76, his family said. No cause was given.
“He was an incredibly kind and wonderful father,” son Eric Osmond said in a statement. “He had his family gathered around him when he passed. He was loved and will be very missed.”
Ken Osmond’s Eddie Haskell stood out among many memorable characters on the classic family sitcom “Leave it to Beaver,” which ran from 1957 to 1963 on CBS and ABC, but had a decades-long life of reruns and revivals.

Eddie was the best friend of Tony Dow’s Wally Cleaver, big brother to Jerry Mathers’ Beaver Cleaver. He constantly kissed up to adults, flattering and flirting with Wally and Beaver’s mother, and kicked down at his peers, usually in the same scene. He was the closest thing the wholesome show had to a villain, and viewers of all ages loved to hate him.
“He was a terrific guy, he was a terrific actor and his character is probably one that will last forever,” Dow told The Associated Press on Monday.

He was one of the few guys on the show who really played a character and created it,” Dow added, chuckling as he mimicked the evil laugh Osmond would unleash when his character was launching one nefarious scheme or another and trying to pull Wally and his younger brother Beaver into it.
Mathers said he will greatly miss his friend of 63 years.
“I have always said that he was the best actor on our show because in real life his personality was so opposite of the character that he so brilliantly portrayed,” Mathers said on Twitter.

That's sad, he was by far the best character on that show. I watched it all the time, and always loved it when he was on.

RIP

R.I.P. He was the best character on the show, and I too had a friend like Eddie Haskell. My condolences to his family.

I had seen this on the news wire that day and just wanted to pay my respects. The Eddie Haskell character was so ahead of its time. "Hello, Mrs. Cleaver" (in his nice voice). Then his about face to Wally or especially the Beaver. Pure gold!

R.I.P. Mr. Osmond

What Eddie really wanted to say, "nice cleavage Mrs. Beaver"

RIP
