Former silent film star Madge Kennedy makes her first series appearance as the Cleaver boys' imperious Aunt Martha. While June (Barbara Billingsley) is out of town visiting her sister Peggy, Aunt Martha agrees to look after Beaver (Jerry Mathers) and Wally (Tony Dow). Unfortunately, she also uses this opportunity to purchase an embarrassing "Little Lord Fauntleroy" outfit for Beaver -- and worse, she insists that he wear it to school! Among other things, this is the episode in which we learn why Beaver never uses his given name, Theodore.
