Fashion Goes Out Of Style Quickly

Author: ccthemovieman-1 from United States
30 January 2007

Beaver and Larry are looking at a store window. One of the fascinating sights they see is an "eskimo sweater," one of the ugliest sweaters you've ever seen. Of course, the two boys think it is cool, very cool, and they want it. Larry says his father is going to get it for him. Beaver wants one, too, of course, and tells his parents about it at dinner. Ward is against the purchase but June wants Beaver to be happy, recalling a similar time in her life when she wanted something badly - an opal ring - but her father said "no" because it wasn't "sensible." So, Ward relents and the Beaver gets the sweater with money taken out of his bank account.

The next morning, when Beaver shows it to his dad, the shocked look on Ward's face is hilarious! (Wally had warned his Dad, "please try not to laugh.")

Beaver wears his new outrageous and over-sized sweater to school, but takes it off before going to class because "I don't want to get it dirty studying." After he puts it in his locker, he and Larry are stunned (talk about shocked looks on your face) when they see - horrors - JUDY wearing the same sweater!

The end of this story was a bit disappointing...but ahead of its time. Beaver gets caught trying to ditch the sweater at the movie theater, and blames it on his parents for letting him buy the sweater even though they knew it was an ugly one. June, who never punishes the boys, does a poor job of teaching them to be responsible for their own actions.
