Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Although he's been forbidden to visit a local construction site, Beaver (Jerry Mathers) does so anyway, and rips the pants of his best suit in the process. Advised by pal Larry (Rusty Stevens) to make up a "good story" about the accident, Beaver fabricates the whopper to end all whoppers -- and when he's caught in his lie, his parents Ward (Hugh Beaumont) and June (Barbara Billingsley) agree not to punish him providing that he promises to tell the truth from now on. Unfortunately, Beav subsequently rips his other good pair of pants under circumstances that border on the ridiculous -- and when he tries to tell the truth to his mom and dad, they refuse to believe him! This episode is also known as "Beaver Disowns His Parents."
