Synopsis

Another 39 terrific episodes are served up in Leave It to Beaver's third season, which when originally telecast on ABC were seen in the series' brand-new Saturday evening time slot. The first offering is "Blind Date Committee," another thrilling chapter in the love life of the now-14-year-old Wally Cleaver (Tony Dow). This is followed with another classic episode wherein Wally volunteers to babysit kid brother Beaver (Jerry Mathers) with embarrassingly soggy results in "Beaver Takes a Bath." And one week later, Beaver's classroom nemesis Judy Hensler (Jeri Weil) of necessity becomes his best friend for a whole four minutes in "School Bus." In other episodes, mom June Cleaver (Barbara Billingsley) mortifies Beaver by making public his baby pictures; dad Ward's (Hugh Beaumont) well-meaning exaggerations about his own youthful athletics cost Beaver dearly in "Beaver Takes a Walk"; Beav's schoolteacher Miss Landers (Sue Randall) shocks her favorite pupil by wearing open-toed shoes in "Teacher Comes to Dinner"; chaos ensues in "Beaver the Magician" when The Beav convinces five-year-old Benji (Joey Scott) that he has turned himself into a rock; and later on, it is weaselly Eddie Haskell (Ken Osmond) who pulls the wool over Beaver's eyes in "The Hypnotist"; June chooses to wear an outlandish blouse rather than break her sons' hearts in "June's Birthday"; and Eddie -- that creep! -- persuades Beaver that Ward will go to jail when Beaver's library book turns up lost. Many fans consider the season's highlight to be "Beaver and Violet," in which poor Beav is unwittingly caught in a kiss with little Violet Rutherford (Veronica Cartwright) ,thanks to her camera-fiend dad Fred (Richard Deacon). Also, for the benefit of those who regard the series as frivolous and insignificant, we refer you to the episode "Beaver and Andy," a poignant and thoroughly realistic story about alcoholism. ~ Hal Erickson
