Ruth McMillan, who was June's bridesmaid, has just moved into the neighborhood with her family. Her son, Dudley, is Wally's age and will be attending the same school, so June would like Wally to show Dudley around. Wally reluctantly agrees, his reluctance because he has never met Dudley and doesn't know what kind of guy he is. Despite Dudley being a nice guy, he and Wally end up having nothing in common, Wally who considers Dudley "different". Dudley wears a suit, tie, overcoat and hat as his regular attire, plays flute in the band, is overly polite even to his peers, and is scared of girls. Eddie and Lumpy can't help but slyly give Dudley the business. In fact, Eddie invites Dudley to Christine Staples' upcoming party just because he knows the other kids will make fun of him. Although Wally doesn't condone Eddie's prank, Wally feels Dudley brings many of these problems onto himself. But based on advice from Ward, Wally ends up being Dudley's "Henry Higgins".

Wally and the Misfit
1 March 2014 | by (Alexandria, VA) – See all my reviews

Anyone who was a misfit as a kid can relate to this episode. A teenager named Dudley McMillan has moved into town, and June asks Wally to befriend him. Dudley's formal attire and polite manners (and his shyness around girls) immediately make him a magnet for sly mockery by Eddie and Lumpy. When Eddie invites Dudley to Christine Staples' birthday party, it's up to Wally to prepare Dudley. Unbeknownst to all, Dudley has a trump card up his sleeve - a talent that no one knows about. Dudley is played by Jimmy Hawkins, who was the child George Bailey in IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE. My only complaint is that the payoff scene could have been stretched out a little longer. Still, this is a memorable episode of LEAVE IT TO BEAVER. It's too bad they couldn't have had Dudley as a regular character.
