Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Stephen Talbot makes his first series appearance as Beaver's troublesome pal Gilbert Bates, here billed as "Gilbert Gates." When new neighbors move in next to the Cleavers, Beaver (Jerry Mathers) introduces himself to Gilbert, who has a habit of playing fast and loose with the truth. When he finds out that the stories Gilbert has been feeding him are all lies, Beaver is really sore, and a fight erupts between the two boys. Can it be that this friendship is over before it even begins?
