Synopsis by Hal Erickson
When his school holds a pet fair, Beaver (Jerry Mathers) gets neurotic over the fact that everyone owns a pet except him. To save face, he brags that he owns the talking parrot that he recently saw in the window of the local pet store. Of course, Beaver is certain that he can back up his boast by talking his dad Ward (Hugh Beaumont) into purchasing the parrot. But Ward isn't exactly made of money, and the best he can do is to bring home a hamster -- and boy, will Beaver get the business this time!
