It's What's Inside That Counts
30 July 2016 | by (Alexandria, VA) – See all my reviews

Beaver becomes self-conscious about his freckles and wants to get rid of them. Ward explains to him that it's what's inside, not what's outside, that counts.

The plot line may be a little childlike at this point, but this is still a good episode. Watch for three good scenes in particular. The first occurs as Beaver, Larry and Whitey polish Lumpy Rutherford's convertible (a privilege for which he actually charges them a quarter). Lumpy sits atop the convertible like some Oriental potentate while his three "serfs" do his bidding; he barks orders and uses intimidation tactics on them. And he repeatedly and tauntingly calls Beaver "Freckles," much to his embarrassment. Larry and Whitey kowtow to Lumpy at first, but at the very end of the scene Larry gives Lumpy a jab in the ribs by calling him by HIS ignominious nickname instead of the preferred "Clarence."

The second funny scene is when Beaver arrives at the dinner table sporting some very conspicuous cosmetic cream in an attempt to cover up his freckles. Wally's struggles to keep from laughing, or calling attention to the situation, are hysterical.

And then there's the concluding scene involving the extremely freckle-faced Clyde Appleby, who offers Beaver some wisdom from personal experience.

On a final note: am I mistaken, or did the makeup department add more freckles to Jerry Mathers' face?
