Late for school again -- the third time this week -- Beaver (Jerry Mathers) and Larry (Rusty Stevens) decide to avoid getting punished by playing hooky; after all, they can think up a good story as to why they were absent later. Unfortunately, the boys end up in the studio audience of Marshal Moran's live TV show -- and practically everybody in town, including Wally, sees the telecast! The best bit is the boys, explaining how they -- and they alone -- were excused early from school. Richard Lane, an L.A.-based actor and newscaster best remembered for his play-by-play commentary on the old roller derby broadcasts appears as Marshal Moran.
