Leave It To Beaver was the first television program to air a toilet.

In 1957, television networks were uneasy about showing a BATHROOM onscreen, let alone a toilet! An episode of Leave It To Beaver was filmed in which Wally and the Beaver hide an alligator in the tank of a toilet. Due to censorship of the bathroom, the episode was postponed a week in order to be edited. The compromise? The final version briefly showed not a toilet…but only the toilet tank! This was said to have been more acceptable and television appropriate at that time.
