Did You Know?


At the beginning of the show June Cleaver is writing entries on the May calendar in the kitchen. You can clearly see that May 6th is a Saturday. This show aired in April of 1963. The calendar must have been from 1961 because May 6th of 1963 was a Monday. See more »


Ward Cleaver: I have a couple of tickets to the game Friday night, and knowing how much both of you boys like baseball, I...
Theodore Cleaver: Gee Dad, do I have to go?
Ward Cleaver: You mean you don't want to go?
Theodore Cleaver: Oh, sure Dad, I'd like to, it's just that me and Gilbert were going to the movies Friday night, and I don't want to back out on him now.
June Cleaver: Well, Beaver, is it something special?
Theodore Cleaver: Yeah, Mom, it's a western in Cinerama, and they had to take out the first four rows to get a screen big enough to handle all that killin'.

When given the chance to act like a soon-to-be- freshman, Beaver lets everyone down.
7 June 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ward has two tickets to a baseball game but including him he has three boys. June could go but she really doesn't understand baseball. When Wally see's the tickets he has a reaction: can I go? Beaver would like to go but he's planning on going to Cinerama with Gilbert. Problem solved. Sorry, Gilbert has to go with his parents to see an aunt. Now Beaver can go see the greatest game ever, according to Gilbert. But Beaver already passed on going.

Wally is really excited. But now Beaver has just got to go to that game. He told the guys at school he is going. No, Ward can't get an extra ticket. How will Beaver take it? Badly with a double case of mopes. You really didn't think he would grown up about it, did you? At school the next day, Beaver has to say he's not going. Gilbert is now advocating junk for Beaver to cause trouble at home. Just check back Beaver, who is the favorite? It's always been Wally, Wally, Wally; just like it's always been my big sister.

Now at home Beaver is looking for everything and anything to prove Gilbert right. Next, we get an onslaught of poor behavior; it even seems when Wally offered him a ride, the Beaver told him to **** off. Quick retreat, he said he didn't want a ride. Up in his room, Beaver refuses to get Wally a towel. You know Wally, I get the worst of everything. I'm the youngest, I get left out of everything. OK, you want to go so bad, let's see who is selfish around here. You want to go in my place and be selfish; well, you have five seconds to make up your mind. Beaver is going.

Ward smells a rat. Wally says he'll spend the night at Eddie's. Wally had a crappy evening; but he never though Beaver would as selfish as he was. Ward gets home and claims Beaver's conscience got the better of him and he didn't have as good a time as he thought. As a sort of peace offering, Beaver gives Wally a foul ball he caught.

Beaver tries other ways to make it up to Wally, and his heart may be in the right place but attempts sort of screw up when he tries to oil Wally's baseball glove. Better if he goes back to being a creepy little brother.

There are eight episodes left, is it possible Beaver will ever learn to tell Gilbert to shut it? Sad to say, but I really am disappointed in Beaver; just like Mrs. Rayburn was in the previous episode.
