As Leave It to Beaver enters its fifth season, Beaver Cleaver (Jerry Mathers) has somehow been promoted to the sixth grade, while brother Wally (Tony Dow) is a junior in high school. Perhaps sensing that Beaver had outgrown his natural cuteness, the producers contrived to build several of the season's better episodes around Wally. Examples: In "Wally Goes Steady," the elder Cleaver kid gets a crash course in marital bliss (or the lack of it); in "Wally's Car," it cannot be denied that he gets his money's worth when he spends 25 bucks on an old beater that won't even start; and in "Wally's Weekend Job," a practical joke prods Wally into depositing two full quarts of ice cream on the heads of his friends Eddie Haskell (Ken Osmond) and Lumpy Rutherford (Frank Bank). Beaver's best showings this season include "Beaver Takes a Drive," or another example of why he should never, ever accept a dare from his pal Gilbert (Stephen Talbot); "Beaver's Ice Skates," featuring former "Bowery Boy" Stanley Clements as a none too ethical department store clerk; "Beaver's English Test," yet another "crisis of conscience" for our boy Beav when he aces a test that happens to be a carbon copy as the one he used for a study guide; and "Beaver's First Date," which, for all you trivia buffs, is with one Betsy Patterson (Pam Smith). Other season highlights: Beaver overcomes his fear of roller coasters; Eddie and Lumpy come to grief when trying to scare Beav and Wally during a nocturnal camp-out; Eddie quits school for a "high-paying job," and, as usual, overestimates both the quality of the job and his own competence; and an "older woman" uses an unwitting Wally to make her boyfriend jealous. If for nothing else, this season will be remembered for the episode wherein Beaver and his buddies decide to make a few prank phone calls, and end up connecting with baseball great Don Drysdale -- a "thrill of a lifetime" that ultimately totes up a long-distance bill of a then-astronomical nine dollars! ~ Hal Erickson
