When Beaver buys a wrecked 'coaster car' from Eddie Haskell, Wally pitches in to help his little brother fix it up and school chum Penny Woods promises him the wheels from her old doll buggy. But Beaver forgets his tools when he goes to Penny's house to remove the wheels and panics when he runs into his best friends, Gilbert and Richard, while trying to sneak the buggy home. Written by

The Beaver production company seems to have gotten quite a bit of mileage (pun intended) out of the 1961 Plymouth Fury that Ward drives into his driveway every day (seen in many episodes). In this episode we see its license plate clearly: ULT 310. (It appears to be an authentic California license plate of the time.) We also see the same car (or one exactly like it in style and colour) in Penny Woods's garage (with a makeshift license number, probably made in the studio props department, pasted over the real one). The Fury is also seen, with a slightly different license number: ULT 459, parked on the street as Beaver is wheeling the doll carriage away from Penny's house. And again, across the street from where Wally is walking as he's looking for The Beaver. In one scene, when Beaver walks up to talk to Wally and Eddie, it is seen behind Beaver as he walks up on the left, and also behind Eddie, as he is talking on the right. Finally, it is seen once again, parked up the street from the Cleaver house, as Gilbert rolls his home-made cart up to Beaver's house. See more
I once remember overhearing my mother say to my father, "Do you think that Ward boy is serious about June?" And my father said, "Well, if the time ever comes that he looks at her the way he looks at one of your pot roasts, then we'll know."
