    Episodes featuring Eddie Haskell always hold us spellbound and give us a chuckle because we all grew up with someone like him. In this episode, we see Wally turning to his Dad for advice on whether to clue in Eddie that Carol is really using him while her real "crush" is grounded. It's odd that Wally is concerned about hurting Eddie's feelings in the first place since every other word that Eddie generally speaks is a taunt or a "put-down" to bolster his own feelings of inferiority. This episode though, really is a slice of teenage tv Americana from the 60's era portraying kids as turning to their parents for advice and depicting the social hang out features of the soda shop. It is very interesting to contrast the world portrayed in Leave It To Beaver with , for instance, a show like American Dreams which also gave us a window to viewing kids in the sixties. How hillarious (and realistic?) is it that Wally's parents should be concerned that Wally might follow Eddie's lead and actually go steady with a girlfriend too? Heaven forbid. Wally should be concentrating on his hook shoot in basketball practice instead!moreless
