His other comic work included issues of Teen Titans, Vigilante, X-Men Classic, The Brave and the Bold, Daredevil, DNA Agents and Blue Beetle. After half a decade in the comics industry, Patton moved to Los Angeles and started a second career designing and developing then storyboarding, and eventually directing animated television shows.

His successful list of credits as a director include, Kulipari: Dream Walker, Dead Space Downfall, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, NFL Rush Zone Season of the Guardians, Lucasart's Defenders of Dynatron City, Kong the animated series, Ultimate Book of Spells, Double Dragon, Swamp Thing, GI Joe, Wish Kid, Captain N, the Emmy nominated Inspector Gadget Saves Christmas and Todd McFarlane's Spawn, which won the Prime time Emmy for Outstanding Animated Program.

Jerry's television and show business career began at the tender age of two when he did a Pet Condensed Milk commercial with Ed Wynn on the "Colgate Comedy Hour." He continued to work on many of the early '50's live television shows and in 1954, he made his movie debut co-starring with Linda Darnell in "This Is My Love." He then caught the attention of Alfred Hitchcock who signed him for the 1955 film, "The Trouble with Harry," starring John Forsythe and Shirley MacLaine in what was her very first film role. The budding young actor next appeared in two Bob Hope movies, "The Seven Little Foys" and "That Certain Feeling." Two movies with Alan Ladd followed, "The Deep Six" and "Men of the Fighting Lady."

Currently shown on Me-TV and in countries throughout the world, "Leave it to Beaver" has made Jerry an American Icon.

His television movie, "Still the Beaver", was one of the top ten movies of the week for 1982 which led to the development of a new series entitled "The New Leave It To Beaver." Jerry successfully completed filming 108 episodes which were syndicated and aired in all major domestic and foreign markets. As well as starring in the series, Jerry also directed multiple episodes.

Stan's career began at the tender age of four when he performed with an underwater swim group called the "WATER BABIES". The Water Babies appeared on YOU ASKED FOR IT, a popular television show back in the early 1950's, and inspired articles in VOGUE and McCALLS magazines. Stan turned actor at age five, appearing as a neighborhood kid on THE ADVENTURES OF OZZIE AND HARRIET. Stan was seen as a semi-regular on the show for four seasons, until 1960, when he landed the role of "Chip Douglas" on MY THREE SONS.
Stan's career blossomed in the area of theatrical motion pictures as well. He has appeared in many feature films including Leo McCary's RALLY ‘ROUND THE FLAG, BOYS, with Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward; THE BONNIE PARKER STORY, with Dorothy Provine; PLEASE DON'T EAT THE DASIES, with Doris Day and David Niven; X-15, with Charles Bronson and Mary Tyler Moore; HOW THE WEST WAS WON with Debbie Reynolds and George Peppard... and many more.
