1. Why thank you Mr. musicman65

for posting this for all my old fans. LOL.

Sad about this, he was a great character and over the years I have known and called several friends of my sons Eddie.

RIP Mr. Osmond and thanks for the entertainment.

2. R.I.P. you have to be of a certain age to understand how iconic Eddie Haskell was to kids back then

We all knew one!

3. An icon for many of us Boomers

Cause of death wasn't reported:
https://variety.com/2020/tv/news/ken-osmond-dead-leave-it-to-beaver-eddie-haskell-dies-actor-1234609639/

I liked the last couple of years "Beavers" shows where Eddie was in full smartass mode. But he always apologized and showed his good side. One of the funniest ones was an older one where he taught Beaver to say something in Spanish to his new Mexican friend. Of course it wasn't what he said it was, so Beaver ended up telling his friend he had a face like a pig, and Eddie-inspired mayhem followed.

18. 76 seems awful young to me

Itís not just because Iíll be 72 this year. Itís sad to see someone die in their 70s.

Iíll probably feel the same way about the 80s when I get there. Or if.

10. He played the role to perfection.

Who among us didn't know an Eddie Haskell growing up in the 50's? I still occasionally watch "Leave it to Beaver" reruns.

11. The name Eddie Haskell

is all you need to describe a certain kind of person. Nothing else is needed. He was perfect for that role.

17. To many of the great actors from the era we grew up in are passing.

3 or 4 just this past week. Notability, Phylis George. She was great at what she did and changed the landscape in women and sports commentary. To each of them, REST IN PEACE.

19. Life after Beaver

 

I read an article a few years ago about how Mr. Osmond became an LA area police officer for many years and also was involved in a lot of charity work. Eddie had a soul.

24. Welcome to DU, elevator.

Eddie Haskell was such a classic weasel character. Exquisitely portrayed by Ken Osmond! You loved him and loved to hate him at the same time.

Makes me wonder if his character was a role model for some republi-CONS we all know nowadays.

Got so upset with the Eddie Haskell character.

She said it made grown-ups suspicious of kids who were genuinely polite.
