DE SOTO, Mo. (KSDK) – You may not recognize his face now, but you'll probably remember his name.

Jerry Mathers played the iconic character Theodore Cleaver on "Leave it to Beaver." The show is what brought him to De Soto on Saturday.

He was in town for a film festival honoring late actor and De Soto native Frank Wilcox. The actor guest starred on the show three times. After all these years, Mathers says he's not surprised the show still has staying power.

You can watch his full interview about "Leave It To Beaver" above.
