After playing Wally’s dim-witted sidekick on the popular TV show in the 1950s and 1960s, Bank found himself typecast, so he quit acting and became a successful financial broker, with ‘Beaver’ co-stars Jerry Mathers and Barbara Billingsley among his clients.

    I couldn’t stand Lumpy! Boy at his age calling his dad DADDY. Why did he wear open shirts showing chest hair at his age? Impolite, liar, wouldn’t even consider a job & what about college? Was he just going to sit on his butt having DADDY give him an allowance? Not sure who was a worse character him or Eddie both LAZY SNEAKY PEOPLE!!!
