    Leave It to Beaver's Lumpy, Frank Bank, Dies

    Good Night, Lumpy...RIP

    Leave It to Beaver's Lumpy, Frank Bank, Dies

    http://www.people.com/people/article...691449,00.html



    Frank Bank, who played the clumsy bully Clarence "Lumpy" Rutherford on the popular 1957-1963 series Leave It to Beaver, died Saturday, one day after his 71st birthday, say published reports.

    No cause of death was reported.

    Beaver star Jerry Mathers, now 64, posted to his Facebook page Saturday: "I was so sad to hear today of the passing of my dear friend and business associate Frank Bank, who played Lumpy on Leave it to Beaver. He was a character and always kept us laughing. My deepest condolences to Frank's family."

    Born in Los Angeles, Bank first appeared on screen as the very young Will Rogers in the 1952 Warner Bros. biopic The Will Rogers Story, and then managed to deliver other TV roles at the same time he was appearing on Leave It to Beaver.

    Once the gentle sitcom about childhood was canceled, Bank continued to make sporadic TV appearances, including those on The Hollywood Squares, Family Feud, the 1983 TV movie Still The Beaver (it spawned The New Leave It to Beaver series, which ran four years) – although, in 1972, he had entered an entirely different profession: as a stock-and-bond broker.

    According to a 1998 PEOPLE profile, Bank learned to handicap horses and read The Wall Street Journal during breaks on the Beaver set, where he taught himself "everything there was to know about tax-free bonds." Within three years of getting started, he says, he was earning $300,000 a year at an L.A.-based company.

    Among his clients were Mathers and Barbara Billingsley, who played Leave It to Beaver's matriarch, June Cleaver. As she once told PEOPLE: "Frank is certainly brighter than Lumpy Rutherford, and a very good stockbroker."

    But then, he was never like Lumpy, really. In his 1997 autobiography Call Me Lumpy, he claimed that, during the Beaver" years, he lived a life of wine, women and song – with maybe not much emphasis on wine and song.

    "A thousand women," Bank told PEOPLE, though his costars, including Eddie Haskell's alter ego, actor Ken Osmond, found the claim hard to swallow. "I never pictured Frank as being Don Juan," said Osmond. "But I never went on a date with him."

    Someone who did, however, ended up becoming his second wife, Rebecca Bank. (Earlier, Bank had married his high school sweetheart and had two daughters.)

    Rebecca told PEOPLE of their first encounter in 1981, "We met at a party and fell in love." The two, who shared a passion for tournament poker, divorced their respective spouses and immediately married, the magazine reported in 1998.

    I do remember watching Leave It To Beaver a million times in syndication in the mid-1970's. I remember the Lumpy character, although I wouldn't have recognized the name Frank Bank or his pic now short of someone pointing out he was a former actor who played the character he did.

    I also remember a schoolyard joke we'd tell each other at, like, the age of ten or so: What was the dirtiest thing ever said on television? Ward, you were a little hard on The Beaver last night?

    The spammer is gone, or Lumpy?

    Or both?

    I'll bet the spammer was the ghost of Ken Osmond. Either him or that cunt, Jerry Mathers.

    Lumpy grew up looking like he was a porn film director.

    Option 1: Heroin running

    Option 2: Manufacturing cheap weaponry for sale on the black market

    Option 3: Spamming the David Lee Roth Army

    "Lousy Western infidels! We will hit them where it hurts most, on their precious fan website created to worship their decadent, spandex-clad rock music idol from 1986!! By the way, did I mention said idol is a Jew?!"

    I'll bet Lumpy and Bob Crane had many a then-discrete night of smutty debauch with amateur...er, um, 'models' circa 1966-1978.

    Maybe Lumpy (and not Scott Carpenter) was Bob Crane's mystery killer.

    Oh, without a doubt.

    It was common knowledge in 60's Tinseltown, for example, that Gilligan's Island star Bob Denver was schtupping both Ginger and Maryann in these kinky 4-ways along with Lovey Howell (although apparently Lovey didn't participate in any penetration and was there strictly in what they used to call a 'lick and lube' capacity re: giving oral to the other three).

    Adam’s wife would fly to Europe and buy antiques and jack the prices up in her boutique and she was making mint doing that. She was pretty sharp.

    Well Gilligan’s Island was bullshit. Mary Ann and Ginger would be knocked up by the professor. They would be popping out kids on the island.

    It would be difficult to do abortions with coconuts. Since that's what they used to make everything else on that damned island.

    Birth control on that island would be pulling out, anal or blow jobs. You don’t want to be making any cream pies even though Gilligan likes to eat them.
