Beaver's Moral Bravery, 19 April 2016
Author: MichaelMartinDeSapio from Alexandria, VA

"The way I figure it, the less you have to do with adults, the better off ya are."

This wise observation, offered by Gilbert to Beaver at the end of "Beaver, the Caddy," is emblematic of the subtly subversive nature of LITB. The series was never afraid to present adults in a bad light, even though the ultimate message seemed to be that people are fundamentally good. In this final-season episode, caddy Beaver catches business executive Mr. Langley doctoring his golf score so as to win a $500 bet with a colleague. What's more, Langley offers Beaver an exorbitant tip, which looks like payoff for his silence! Beaver's well-formed conscience gets the better of him, and he takes the exceptionally brave action of visiting Langley in his office and calling him out on his wrongdoing. How Langley straightens out the situation and redeems himself, you'll have to see for yourself. This episode shows Beaver growing ever more securely into moral maturity.

Langley is played by Richard Simmons (the star of television's "Sergeant Preston of the Yukon"), who is the very picture of a 1950s business executive. The golfing sequences are nicely done.
