Tired of living in the shadow of his brother Wally's athletic accomplishments, Beaver (Jerry Mathers) tries out for the local park's basketball team. It helps matters not at all when his pals tell Beaver that he's gotten on the team only because of Wally's reputation. So nervous does this make Beaver that he begins to "goof up" in each game, whereupon he is bounced from the team. Now Beaver is even further down in the dumps -- should he withhold the fact that he's been cut from his parents, or should he tell them and thereby confirm the "fact" that Wally (Tony Dow) will always be better than he is?
