What was the first television show to show a toilet on screen?
I Love Lucy
Leave It to Beaver
Father Knows Best
The first toilet to appear on televison happened on the television series Leave It to Beaver. Showing bathrooms on television was taboo, but in one particular episode in 1957, Wally and Beaver secretly order a pet aligator and decide to hide it in the toilet tank. A lot of back and forth went into making this scene. The network refused to allow crews to film the toilet, while the producers insisted it was essential to the plot. Ultimately, the network agreed to go along with the scene as long as the characters didn’t do their business in the restroom.
The correct answer is Leave It to Beaver.
