  • Slightly unusual topic, elements glossed over, but the kids always make me laugh.

    Beaver and Wally make friends with kids from a different background...



    Overall, this is pretty much standard Leave It To Beaver fare, perhaps what stands out the most is the ease with which Beaver and Wally transition into understanding and enjoying the lifestyle of "poor" kids. Ward seems a little cautious about the family, though he is always friendly to the garbageman when he is doing his work. Its probably June Cleaver who acts most intolerantly in this episode, with elements of suspicion and some lines that verge on outright prejudice. In the end, the kids end up enjoying each other's company, despite the differences in lifestyle, I suppose a nice message for a situation comedy at the time. As usual, there is always something about the kid's impressions of parent's intent that makes me laugh.moreless
  • Excellent episode.

    This was a very good episode. It shows how sometimes the things that people take for granted, seems like everything to someone else. To be honest, I love just about every episode of Leave It To Beaver. Unlike shows of today, this is a family show. Even the shows today that are supposed to be "family shows" aren't even family. That's all I have to say. They say you have to write 100 words, though, so now I'm just going to type gibberish.

  • Wally and the Beav spend a day with the garbageman's sons from down the street doing nothing more than enjoying simple pleasures of a summer day.

    There was something different and possibly unfortunate about the lives of the boys down the street. It was unsaid in this episode, they barely alluded to the idea that all may not be well with their family life. This was made all-the-more touching by the joy they found hanging around with Wally and the Beav engaging in simple, but fun, summertime fare.
