The Maid


Wally gets a job as a parking valet at a wedding reception. Ward and June don't like the idea, but Mr. Langley, the father of the bride, is providing the necessary insurance, and Wally has shown to be a responsible driver thus far, so they allow him to take the job. However, they once again become concerned when Wally plans on asking Eddie and Lumpy to help him, as although Wally can control what he himself does, he has no control over his friends, who have proved to be irresponsible in the past, and Wally is ultimately responsible for them at the job. Lumpy ends up not being able to do the work, leaving it to Wally and Eddie. The job goes well enough, until the neighborhood gets overloaded with cars. Eddie ends up parking a car in what he doesn't see as a private tow away zone, what's worse being that the car in question belongs to blow-hard Fred Rutherford. Wally has to decide what to do when they find out that Mr. Rutherford's car has been towed. Written by Huggo

Suburban Satire
1 March 2014 | by (Alexandria, VA) – See all my reviews

LEAVE IT TO BEAVER was more than a family sitcom filled with heartwarming lessons about growing up. It also offered droll satire of post-war suburban life, with all of its social pretenses. In "The Parking Attendants," Wally and Eddie get a job parking cars for guests at a wedding in the neighborhood. The episode offers a riot of sophisticated wit, with Fred Rutherford and Eddie socially "on the make" in amusing ways. To add to the social mix, we also have the only black character ever to appear on LEAVE IT TO BEAVER, a maid played by Kim Hamilton. This is very much a "Wally and Eddie" episode, with Beaver firmly in the background. "The Parking Attendants" shows that this beloved series was still as strong as ever in its sixth and final season. Not to be missed!
