In an unusually serious and profound episode, Beaver invites his new friend Chopper Cooper (played by the versatile Barry J. Gordon) to spend the weekend. It seems that Chopper's parents are divorced, and have remarried several times. Beaver is fascinated by all the expensive presents bestowed upon Chopper by the various and sundry grownups and step-siblings in his life, and begins wondering if he could benefit by his own parents' breakup! However, an emotionally charged climactic conversation between Chopper and Beaver forces our hero to realize how lucky he is. Beaver's House Guest was co-written by eminent playwright/screenwriter Arthur Kober, whose other credits include the film version of The Little Foxes.
