Trivia

Assuming each Beaver episode happens after the one(s) before it, Ward seems to have retrieved his old car after buying a new one in the previous episode, Leave It to Beaver: Wally's Car Accident (1962). There Wally busts the headlight of Ward's new 1963 Plymouth Sport Fury (license number HBC-743). Here, Ward once again comes home in his "old" 1962 Plymouth Belvedere (license number WJG 865), the same car and license plate seen in the Season 6 opening credits. See more »

Goofs

After Beaver calls Shirley the names and she begins to cry, her two friends sympathize with her and try to comfort her. Yet only a few seconds earlier, after Beaver's first insult, the two girls can't help but laugh. See more »

Quotes

Ward Cleaver: [Beaver is upset because some girls at school called him a "sheep dog"] It happens to all of us. I remember once the kids called me "elephant ears".
June Cleaver: Did it bother you?
Ward Cleaver: No, not at all. It was Winter, and I just wore a stocking cap to school and pulled it down over my ears.
June Cleaver: Oh, Ward, what did you do when the warm weather came?
Ward Cleaver: I learned to fight.

If You Can't Take It, You Shouldn't Dish It Out

Caught the ending of this episode one morning.

A girl was teasing Beaver about his shaggy hair look. He tried slicking his hair back and this caused Wally to laugh at him.

So now enter the man with the ultimate answers, Eddie Haskell. He told Beaver when the girl starts making the jokes, make jokes back at the girl, so that is what Beaver did.

With complete and utter venom, the girl maliciously called Beaver 'fido' among other names, so when Beav told her her face belonged on an iodine bottle and other square insults, the girl . . . . bursts into tears.

"Who made this girl cry?" the principal asked as he entered the hall.

"Beaver did, Mr. Authority. He was picking on her." Man, get real. Unfortunately this behavior still exists today; where women or females think it is okay for them to attack guys, but they aren't supposed to get it in return.

Leave It To Beaver certainly did document a lot of human behavior.
